Ryan Seacrest faces sexual abuse claims

Red Carpet this year is an unexpected point of controversy, given the sexual harassment allegations recently leveled against host Ryan Seacrest.

Hardy has said that the investigator was "whitewashing" the probe to the benefit of Seacrest and said the investigator never reached out to the witnesses she had referred him to. The TV host has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse by his former stylist Suzie Hardy-claims which he has repeatedly denied-and E!'s investigation into his actions found him innocent of misconduct.

"It's business as usual", an E! spokesperson told Fox News in a statement.

"Red Carpet Rundown: Oscars 2018" featuring Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, celebrity stylist Jason Bolden, and Elaine Welteroth (Journalist and former Editor-in-Chief of "Teen Vogue"). In November, Seacrest made the accusations against him public, by stating that E! was investigating sexual misconduct allegations made against him by "someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me almost a decade ago at E!"

Seacrest's "Live" co-host Kelly Ripa didn't mention the allegations specifically on Thursday, but she gushed about her excitement over his Oscar duties as she issued a strong endorsement of his character.

"They really shouldn't send him [to the Oscars]", Burke told Variety, referring to E!, which is covering the lead-up to the red carpet event.

In December, then-E! host Catt Sadler announced she was leaving the network, largely because she was only being paid half the salary of her male co-star and her requests for a raise were denied once she discovered that.

You might recall the embarrassing mistake made past year at the Oscars by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway: They announced the wrong victor for Best Picture. "For Kelly, there's not a Plan B. She had to make a decision and rally around him". I didn't know what was happening.

"You are a privilege to work with and I adore you", Kelly said of Ryan on March 1. News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her.

"I mean, there is a lot to think about with E!, you know?" I am not a judge.

A PR powerhouse told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "Usually Ryan is the one you want ... but there are so many outlets on that carpet, why risk it?" I am not a jury.
