Ryan Seacrest's team 'staged an intervention' as fans were concerned about mystery absence from LIVE with Kelly & RyanOctober 6, 2021
RYAN Seacrest's team reportedly 'staged an intervention' as fans were concerned about mystery absence from LIVE with Kelly & Ryan.
The busy host missed several episodes of his morning talk show late last month.
According to Us Weekly, following Ryan being absent from LIVE last month, fans worried he was experiencing "exhaustion."
An insider shared: "His team was so concerned they staged an intervention.
"Ryan’s in bad [shape]."
Last month, Kelly Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, filled in when Ryan was out for several shows.
Another source told the outlet: “Kelly is a pro and knows the show must go on.
"She would of course have missed her cohost, but Mark did a fantastic job supporting her and the whole cast when he stepped in this week.”
Another insider told Us there's no reason to worry about Ryan.
“Ryan has been doing his [radio show] live on the air, [and is getting ready] to head to Austin for American Idol auditions.
"He recognizes he needs to find windows of time to rest during these busy windows of work.”
During a 2020 episode of American Idol, fans were left concerned for Ryan's health after a segment saw the host slur his speech and appear unable to focus properly.
His right eye also appeared to be drooping.
Reps for the host released the following statement: "Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night.
"Like many people right now, Ryan is adjusting to the new normal and finding work-home balance, with the added stress of having to put on live shows from home."
Speaking to People magazine, the rep added: "Between LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, American Idol, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he has been juggling three to four on-air jobs over the last few weeks and he’s in need of rest.
"So today he took a well-deserved day off."
Following the health scare, Ryan reportedly considered a permanent move to Los Angeles after suffering from "exhaustion" while filming American Idol.
The 45-year-old's friends are worried he's "overdoing it" after his recent on-air health scare, sources claimed.
Ryan has been shooting LIVE with Kelly & Ryan from his Los Angeles home in keeping with social distancing rules and is "dreading" the thought of returning to New York.
He is apparently considering relocating to his West Coast retreat permanently after worrying fans by slurring his words during the American Idol finale.
“He has nothing against New York, but he feels that he was healthier in Los Angeles,” a source told Closer Weekly.
“Ryan admitted he’s been exhausted since his health scare in mid-May. Ryan knows the show needs the hosts in the same room – but right now, he’s dreading the thought of not living in California."
The timing "couldn't be better" as filming for LIVE with Kelly & Ryan is going on a weeks-long break next month.
The insider said: "There are people at the network who are extremely worried that he is overdoing it.
"People internally have started to ask questions.”
Ryan had fans worried back in May when he appeared to be slurring his words and unable to focus properly while presenting a segment of the Idol finale.
