Ryan Seacrest visited the Oprah Winfrey show today to talk about Idol and the rest of his busy life.
Ryan had some very kind words for his “nemesis” Simon Cowell:
“He’s a terrific individual who is one of the sweetest guys you’re ever going to meet in the business. Even though he’s tough on the show,he’s got a very big heart, and he’s very generous, and he’s a great friend of mine.”
He’s also complimented judge Ellen Degeneres, who is also a good friend who he says “owns who she is on the show.” He promises that the chemistry will continue to be “fantastic.” Really Ryan? Ha!
In part 2, Ryan talks about his love for twitter, his family (his mother, Connie was in the audience) and the new reality show he’s producing with Jamie Oliver about childhood obesity. Bonus: Photo of Ryan as a very chubby kid…
Ryan wouldn’t pick a favorite Idol, but he said he has really enjoyed watching Carrie Underwood’s success.
