Kind of in the same way that Debra Messing put E! on blast for reportedly underpaying Catt Sadler. during a red carpet interview with E!

Here's where and when Oscars 2018 red carpet coverage will be happening on Sunday, March 4. Whether or not they can do this depends on whether they're able to smooth out any potential controversy. The Oscars, produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide. But then Variety ran another story, in which Seacrest's accuser identified herself as Suzie Hardy.

'He has not been to trial for anything, ' the 27-year-old said. "We shouldn't have to give up our seat at the table because of bad behavior that wasn't ours". "I know what a professional, great person you are, and I feel very, very blessed to work with you each and every day".

Despite the fact that Seacrest's Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host Kelly Ripa spoke out this week in support of him amid the allegations, E! still faced mounting pressure to remove the American Idol host from the red carpet.

A former personal stylist claims that the KUWTK exec-producer sexually harassed her. Network investigated, and found "Insufficient evidence".

Seacrest continues to deny all claims and in a statement said hardy is looking for a payout. The allegations against Seacrest raise the question of whether actors could turn questions around on him, or avoid interviews altogether.

It's starting to seem possible that this might be the beginning of an all-out revolt against the network's chokehold on celebrity coverage. Will actresses speak to Seacrest on the E! red carpet as they arrive for the 2018 Oscars? Another executive with knowledge of the situation confirms that the longer than usual delay is one of several "defensive scenarios" that E! has on the table in the Seacrest matter for Sunday afternoon.

On the bright side, Burke said that she has felt a measure of "relief" from stars who were made uncomfortable by Harvey Weinstein's presence at the ceremony in past years. Lawrence said. "I have always had a problem with the 'Fashion Police.' I don't have a problem with talking about what women are wearing". "You are happiness", he said.
