Under Pressure: Seacrest Coming Out?

April 18, 2010

Ryan Seacrest may not be ‘coming out’ in the usual way that terminology is used, as in “Hi, I’m not hetero” but he’s certainly coming out of his past-seasons’ slightly more reserved, self. Likely since Paula Abdul’s unconventional, sometimes whacky and erratic, yet oddly endearing behavior is being missed on the show, Ryan seems poised, willing and able to step up and be her replacement.

After last week’s shows the on-line blogs have been buzzing with tales speculating what’s really up with Ryan this year. Is it the fact the show seems headed for derailment, is it Simon Cowell’s impending departure? A combination of the two or something else entirely? Too, Seacrest tossed an insult veiled as a joke at past Idol co-host, Brian Dunkelman, which was out of place and out of the normal character that Seacrest has embraced on the show.

One of the most off the wall moments from last week was Seacrest verbal sparing with guest mentor and last season’s runner up, Adam Lambert. The sticky situation surrounded discussion of Lambert’s ‘famous’ tongue thrusts while singing. Seems the discussion was about talented tongues…

Then while Tim Urban, whom Ryan dubbed “T’Urban” sang “All My Lovin” Seacrest danced in the aisles with another guy… Initially it was believed to be former contestant, Michael Sarver but apparently that was not the case.

Now I did not see any dancing going on but it is a nice video of Tim Urban providing a more than decent performance.

Apparently too, Seacrest a fan of the T’Urban, having to cop a feel of Timmeh’s fabulous upper arms in a ‘caught on camera’
muscle feel-up.

So, (a.) Is Ryan Seacrest losing his ever loving mind? (b.) Is Seacrest on pharmaceuticals or the magic herbs? (c.) Or is Ryan just so damn bored with this season he’s ‘bringing back the Abdul’ for comedy relief? Is (d.) Seacrest approaching too many careers exhaustion? Or (e.) All of the above. ?
