Kelly Ripa better watch her back because Ryan Seacrest has a bunch of friends lined up to replace her if she decides to leave the show.
“Ryan taped shows with Kim Kardashian and a bunch of his other friends as co-hosts, however the person that made Kelly sit up and watch was when Ryan asked Lisa Rinna to join him to fill in for Kelly who was on vacation,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “Not many people know this but when Kathy Lee Gifford left the show it came down to Kelly Ripa and Lisa Rinna to replace her. Kelly and Lisa were the final two and Kelly got the job. She is very weary of Lisa as she knows that the best job on TV was almost hers. When Ryan brought in Lisa it was a red flag.”
Ramona Singer Fired From Real Housewives?
The Real Housewives of New York’s season is over and now producers are looking for a new lady to possibly be replacing Ramona Singer!
“Ramona doesn’t know it yet but she will might not be coming back to the show,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “The producers love Ramona and acknowledge that as one of the few original cast members, she helped make the show a huge hit. But her storyline has come to a natural end and she needs to turn up the heat if she wants to survive. Viewers have seen her daughter grow up and her marriage fall apart and now she has nothing interesting to add. She was supposed to be finding love after her ugly split but that didn’t really happen. Everyone wishes her the best.”
However one insider says no decisions have been made yet. The show is always looking for new talent and excited about the new season. They noted the ratings for the past season have been great – so why mess with a good thing?
