Plans Oscars Red Carpet Delay Amid Ryan Seacrest Harassment Claim

Meanwhile, E! has stood by its "comprehensive" investigation, and Ryan is still expected to host the network's red carpet show at the Oscars on March 4.

His former E! News stylist Suzie Hardy told Variety she suffered years of unwanted sexual aggression from Seacrest, who she says groped her and slapped her rear end.

The cabler, however, won't confirm the delay, instead insisting it's "business as usual" on the carpet.

The move comes after sexual-harassment claims against the "American Idol" host by a former personal stylist resurfaced in recent days, Deadline said. In an interview with Variety, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke addressed Seacrest's Oscars appearance, saying that E! shouldn't be sending the host to the Oscars and forcing actresses - many of whom have been victims of sexual misconduct themselves - to decide whether or not they will speak with Seacrest.

E! is attempting to get in front of any potential backlash against host Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet.

One of the bigger story-lines heading into Oscar Sunday has less to do with the movies themselves than the person asking about them on the red carpet.

So began Ryan Seacrest as E!'s broadcast began at 2 p.m. PST from the 90th Academy Awards red carpet, flashing his signature white-tooth smile and looking dapper in a navy and black tuxedo from his Ryan Seacrest Distinction men's collection. "We shouldn't have to make those choices of, 'Do we or don't we?." she told Variety.

"I'll be shocked to see who stops to talk to Ryan", one publicist who represents A-list celebrities told Page Six. I am not a jury, you know. "I dispute these reckless allegations and I plan to cooperate with any corporate inquiries that may result", he said in a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter, moving on to explain that he's an "advocate for women", pledging to "continue to support their voices". "I don't know about the Ryan Seacrest thing", she said. News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her. In the interview, the 27-year-old star of "The Red Sparrow" admitted that she was conflicted about talking to Seacrest. I am not a judge. "I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts", Debra Messing said.
