Ryan Seacrest Allegedly Rubbed His Erection On Co-Worker And Grabbed Her Vagina
After Harvey Weinstein was outed as a serial sexual harasser, E! Entertainment launched an investigation into whether or not Ryan Seacrest harassed his longtime wardrobe stylist Suzie Hardy, who alleged to Variety that Seacrest was constantly grabbing her vagina, sort of like a straight Kevin Spacey. She also describes Seacrest as breaking down in tears in his dressing room because she wasn’t attracted to him, to which she replied that she was “attracted to her paycheck”. Which sounds like a clever thing she thought of after the incident and added in to make herself seem cooler.
What Hardy characterizes as the most egregious offense allegedly occurred on the set of “E! News” in 2010. Hardy was, at the time, dating a high-powered entertainment attorney — toward the beginning of a relationship that would last three years. According to the letter and interviews with Hardy, as she stood in front of Seacrest, tying his tie, Seacrest inquired about the relationship, asking, “Have you f–ked him yet?” When Hardy responded by telling Seacrest not to ask her such questions, Seacrest allegedly reached down and tightly grabbed her vagina.
You know, maybe Stamos was right about Ryan Seacrest being gay. I’m no expert, but I was always pretty sure that you wanted to get inside the vagina, not squeeze it from the outside. How is that pleasant for anyone? That is the behavior of someone who is touching a vagina for the first time.
Hardy — in the letter and in interviews — and the same coworker said that a month later they were in Seacrest’s suite at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood where Hardy was helping him dress for the Academy Awards. According to separate accounts from both, Seacrest, again in his underwear, this time with a visible erection, grabbed Hardy, threw her onto the hotel-room bed, and climbed on top of her, rubbing his erection against her — stopping only when Hardy’s co-worker began yelling at him.
This is weird. This crosses so far into the unbelievable that it sounds credible, because who would make up a forceful dry-humping in front of a third party? But Seacrest, E! Entertainment and the outside party E! hired to investigate the allegations against Seacrest, all claim Hardy’s allegations are without merit.
“E!’s investigation was extremely comprehensive and thorough,” an E! spokesperson told Variety. “Over the course of a two month process, our outside counsel interviewed more than two dozen people regarding the allegations, including multiple separate meetings with the claimant. The investigator is an attorney with nearly 20 years experience and is highly regarded professionally. Any claims that question the legitimacy of this investigation are completely baseless.”
Seacrest’s attorney claims that the allegations amount to extortion, but failed to provide Variety with proof that Hardy asked for money as per their allegations.
Seacrest’s attorney, Andrew Baum, told Variety, “It is upsetting to us that Variety is electing to run a ‘story’ about untrue allegations that were made against my client, after they were told that the accuser threatened to make those false claims against him unless he paid her $15 million. At that time, the claimant threatened to issue a demonstrably false press statement unless she was paid. Instead, my client proactively and publicly denied the claims and agreed to fully cooperate with E!’s investigation about the matter.”
Baum continued, “On January 31st the network notified us that their independent third-party investigation had concluded that there was insufficient evidence to support her claims, effectively, clearing my client’s name. It’s telling that after my client refused to pay her money, and the E! investigation resulted as it did, that she is now coming forward to share her debunked story to the press.”
Honestly, the most surprising part of this story to me is that Seacrest has a penis. I had always assumed he was some sort of asexual wood elf or something, sent to earth to make unbearable television.
