Kelly Ripa is standing by her co-host.
On Thursday’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan”, Ripa addressed the sexual misconduct allegations against Ryan Seacrest.
“I just want you to know you are a privilege to work with, and I adore you, and I am speaking on behalf of all of us here,” Ripa told Seacrest on the air. “I know what an easy, professional, great person you are and I feel very, very lucky to work with you each and every day.”
“You are happiness wrapped in chocolate,” she added.
Seacrest’s former stylist at E! News, Suzie Hardy, publicly accused Seacrest of sexual harassment and assault earlier this week. E! News said that the TV host had been cleared after an investigation earlier this year.
