[ mood | amused ]

I just want to thank everyone for expressing their concern. I appreciate it, but really, I'm fine.

Remember how a while ago I said that I was going to ask to room with Simon on the auditions? How lucky am I man!?! I am rooming with him for my first stop in Cleveland. I've been on vacation prior to this.

Anyway, some random facts about Simon. He takes a bath every morning and they last an hour and ten minutes. No joke. He watches tv at the same time. Simon in a tub full of bubbles, naked, watching tv, early in the morning...it's totally a kodak moment. I just can't wait for the rest of the stops. I'll be in D.C. for the rest of the week, and then I'm home in L.A. for a week in between.

That's all I have to report. Oh, and food poisioning is not fun.

Kill me now please [16 Aug 2004|08:41am]
[ mood | depressed ]

He's gone. It's over.

My heart has been ripped out, trampled on by a stampede of elephants, shoved in a blender and then fed to a pack of starving wolves. Only, it feels ten times worse.

I wasn't good enough. I thought I gave him everything he needed, whatever he wanted, but it wasn't enough. I guess he had carried so many expectations of me since we've known each other for a while now, but I just couldn't see myself and the relationship leading that way. In the far future, yes, quite possibly, but to committ myself to him now? I just...I honestly couldn't do it.

I'm sorry.

Tired as assfuck [13 Aug 2004|09:36am]
[ mood | tired ]

I got in about 2 hours ago. Nigel was completely pissed off, but there was nothing I could do about it. I had just enough time to jump in the shower and shave. Dean is doing my hair now as I'm typing this up and everyone is giving me dirty glances because I'm causing auditions to run late. Can't have the audition footage with out your host looking his top best, but really, there's only so much that make up can do.

So, despite the fact that I look like a million bucks, I've got my smile pasted on, that usual Seacrest charm is just a little below the normal level. I'm exhausted. In the past 24 hours I've gotten maybe about 2 hours of sleep, tops. I woke up yesterday morning and called over to Clay. I have never heard the kid sound so bad before, I was a little worried, so I hopped my ass on a plane and went over there, thinking I'd be over at Cleveland by midnight. It's nice to dream sometimes.

He's running a fever, coughing up a storm and he can't seem to keep anything down. He was feeling better before the concert started and they gave him some kind of a shot to help him out and I really thought that he'd pull out of whatever the hell that's got him down. I ended up falling asleep for the concert, and initially I had planned on heading out to the airport directly after, but Jerome and Nick carried him back into the dressing room because he could barely make it off the stage.

Long story short, I had to leave eventually and my fucking flight was delayed for about 3 hours. I couldn't sleep in the airport because I was worried about him and I wanted to go back and wait, but there really wasn't a set departure time so I had no choice but to sit and wait.

One thing is clear, he can't continue to keep flying to wherever I am when he has a day off. I guess I'll have to learn to deal.

I'm glad I held off on arriving in St. Louis for as long as I did, because there is absolutely nothing to do here. Simon was right. Maybe if we get off early enough I'll go down and visit the arch, just because, or see if there's a game playing. That's the only two things I can think of when it comes to St. Louis.

I'm a little dissapointed, I won't get to see Clay for 3 days, and then after that, he's busy until the 22nd! They are just working him way too hard. I should give Roger a call, see if I can get him away for an extra day or something, that is just too much in a row without a break.

Speaking of Clay, the relationship has pretty much done a 180 in certain aspects. There's alot I want to say, but I won't because no one wants to hear that, so I'll keep it to myself. It works better that way I think. I don't know really, maybe I'll just completely break down later over drinks with...well, Simon and I aren't even talking right now, so there goes my bar mate. I'll have to pick a random up off the street. Shouldn't be too hard if I promise them drinks.

I don't know what I want anymore.

// Sometimes I think/ Things are overwhelming/ Sometimes I think/ I don't know what I'll do/ But I forget the world/ And everything around me/ That's what I think/ When I think about you//

I couldn't have asked for anything better this weekend. I spent every waking moment just being with him, and even when we slept we were never far apart. I promised him a date, and we ended up camping on the beach. Now I know you're all thinking "But doesn't Clay fear the water?" Yes, he does...but maybe now his fear isn't as strong as it was to begin with. It feels good to be able to say that I had a part in that, that I was able to help him in conquering his fear. Words can't even begin to describe the incredible closeness one feels.

I still haven't gotten over the whole tattoo thing.

So it starts yet again. I get to console the broken hearts of the kids who decide to make complete fools of themself. Sometimes I see what these kids can do and it just pisses me off because we give them false hope I think, sending them through to the judges just to make good tv. What's sad is that some of them truly think they could be the next American Idol. However, Simon Cowell will tell them differently and he doesn't exactly sugarcoat the truth. I'll be in St. Louis on Wednesday and then off to Cleveland on Friday. I would have loved to go back to Hawaii, I have to say I did enjoy myself there thoroughly.

Speaking of Simon, it hurts when two people that you care about seem to be fairly strong enemies. I'd like nothing more for them to work out their differences, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I think I'm going to get spoiled sleeping next to him everynight. I'll be the first to admit that our relationship is far from perfect, but at the end of the day when we're falling asleep in each others arms, it makes it all well worth it. I really need to get my act together though. So far I have not yet had to deal with seriously angry Clay. Just an FYI, don't ever piss him off. Seriously. It's incredibly scary. Not something pleasant you'd like to deal with.

Had a good time last night chatting with everyone. I look forward to doing it again sometime soon.

So, I'm in Cleveland last night and a certain someone decided to pay me a visit. I think I got my work out for the rest of the week. He came bearing a nice surprise too, and it was incredibly fucking sexy.

I won't get to spend too much time with him today since auditions are going on today, but I'll sneak away when I can for some prime time make out sessions.

I need to start talking to other people, I feel so un-loved and that makes me sad.

[ mood | contemplative ]

For those of you who listen in daily to my morning show on KIIS fm, you may have noticed I took the day off. We aired a best off instead, I just wasn't really feeling it.

I know that all good things must come to an end, but this show was my show. I gave birth to the whole idea and now it's nothing but a distant memory really. I'm glad though that I was presented with the opportunity to do the show, because it has been a fantastic experience. There will be more to come, this is not the end of Ryan Seacrest, but still, I'm just...

Anyway, yesterdays show was a little difficult for me. It's hard to pretend being something you're not, but I think I pulled off the happiness bit fairly well, don't you think? I'll be honest, because I'm not afraid to show my feelings. I cried. You'll probably not see me around for the next few days, I don't feel like talking much.

Seacrest o u t...

So, there really isn't too much to say right now. I'm at a bit of a plateau in my life and for once, I don't know where everything is headed. It's a little scary to have that feeling, and I'm sure I'll shake it in due time, but for now...

It's unbelievable how much I needed him last night, as much as he needed me as well. It was such an incredible feeling, I wouldn't have given it up for my right arm. Ok, maybe...cause then I'd have to learn how to jerk off with my left hand, but that's a whole different story.

Today is the last live show of On Air. I'm a little dissapointed, but I'm sure good things will come of it.

So, I flunked my baby test. How sad is that? I got a big fat "f" but I didn't take this thing seriously. I mean, if it was a real kid, I wouldn't shove it in the overhead compartment on the airplane because she's crying and annoying the passengers. So yeah. It just made me aware that being a father is more complicated than I ever imagined. The only thing I did right was properly hold the child.

So, Temporary is gone but I still have Clay around, and he's kind of like a kid. He's been sick this weekend and I played Nurse Ryan, tending to his every whim. It's hard to believe, but he gets even pissier when he's sick. I know, it's scary. He's feeling much better now, and I'm glad that he didn't end up heaving all over me or something gross like that. Although, he did manage to cough on me a few times.

I spoke with Nick Lachey yesterday, interesting guy... We've made tentative plans to go work out together. I'll have to see how that goes.

Last night I got a little upset over something that was pretty stupid. I'm channel surfing just before bed and I come across Howard Sterns radio show. Now, I've been on his show before and he was a real ass, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. He had Ivana Bozilovic on, and he was asking her all these questions about me, which I'm not repeating here so if you didn't see it, sucks for you. I was offended and a little hurt for some reason, but I'm slowly getting over it. Now that I think about it, wasn't such a big deal really.

I think I'm going out to dinner tonight, but I need to confirm it with a certain someone.

Idol auditions in about a week! I'm excited.

That's all for now, peace out kids.

I am terrible at remembering things. I even had Jasmine remind me and I still completely forgot.

Tamyra, Happy Birthday sweetie.

Amy, Happy Birthday to you too!

Presents will be arriving shortly, I hope anyway...

Alright, here's a little update on what's going down in Vegas. If anyone is around, you're more than welcome to stop by and visit. I'm sure we can think of something for fun. This is Vegas afterall.

So, after upsetting Clay yesterday, I've decided that we'll be playing a game on Kiis. It's called "I spy, what happens in Vegas, goes on air Monday morning" during the weekend you have to keep your eye on that person and then you'll spill whatever you want about them monday morning. No holds barred, anything goes.

Temporary Marie Seacrest is doing good, she was up all night of course, so she's been sleeping for the day so far. If only that would be the other way around I'd be the happiest guy alive. She's only up for about 5 minutes, so it's not too bad.

So much to say, so little time, so I'll make this quick maybe.

It's a girl, I'm going to Vegas this weekend, leaving tonight to be exact. Giving away 20 million dollars, and I've dissapointed Clay. Nothing unusual there.

Anyone want to babysit for me perhaps?

I'll have more later.

[ mood | accomplished ]

So, there's a few things that I need to get off my chest here.

1.) American Idol auditions!!! Anyone out there between the ages of 16 and 28 are welcome to come and try out. We'll be in 8 cities across the country from August to October. Line-up is as follows:

Cleveland, Ohio - August 4, 2004
Washington, D.C. - August 18, 2004
Orlando, Florida - August 26, 2004
St. Louis, Missouri - TBD
New Orleans, Louisiana - August 31, 2004
Las Vegas, Nevada - September 12, 2004
Anchorage, Alaska - September 28, 2004
San Francisco, California - October 5, 2004

Can you tell I'm most excited about New Orleans? That should be some damn good times, huh Simon? Definitely looking forward to that one.

Maybe I'll see some of you there, maybe not? The auditions are my favorite part of Idol I think. Simon of course would probably disagree because he has to sit there and listen to guys such as William Hung and worse. I'm sure we'll have many of those coming for auditions this time around. I have the coolest job though, I get to talk to all the kids, and I'm basically their support for everything. If they get accepted, or rejected, I'm the first person they see. Luckily no one has been so pissed off that they've tried to hurt me or anything.

I forgot to wish Good Luck to the 10 Idols who began the tour last night. How did it go guys? Hope it went smoothly. I'll never forget that classic Clay moment from season 2 tour, when the lift on the stage didn't work and his microphone was dead. Priceless. Seriously. If you haven't seen it, run, don't walk to the nearest place to download it.

That segues into the second important thing I have to say...I'm sure many of you won't be surprised really, but still, I want you to hear it from me, and not off the front cover of some stupid tabloid magazine. So, if you're around and you care, give me a call or something.

Oh, and I'm no longer single...

Happy Birthday Mr. President...er, dad? [12 Jul 2004|12:52pm]
Had a couple of visitors in this weekend, my parents...whom I put up in a hotel. It was my fathers birthday, so I splurged on an extra special suite and threw dad a huge bash in the hotel. Brought Clay along for entertainment, my mother is just in love with him, which is a good thing I imagine, I don't know.

Unfortunately, the party didn't quite turn out as planned, and I left an hour early. His simple presence made it bearable for me though. Just knowing he was there...I don't think I'll ever forget him singing Happy Birthday a la Marilyn Monroe. It was just priceless.

Lets get it started! [10 Jul 2004|01:23pm]
[ mood | flirty ]

Yesterday was such a great show, I had alot of fun with all the Idols, and I hope they did too. I almost got Jennifer and George to kiss, that would have been great, but they chickened out at the last minute sadly. It was absolutely hotter than hell out there yesterday, I had to roll up my sleeves and I began regretting my long sleeved shirt choice. If you missed the show, that sucks for you!

We rolled my behind the scenes footage from the Ryan cam during AI3 and it brought back memories. I almost started tearing up thinking about how much I missed Simon. Paula and Randy too of course. But Simon, he just really holds a special place in my heart. All those gay jokes he makes about me? I know it's because deep down he seriously wants me. Why else would he come to my place when he and terri are at odds? So we can get it on!!!

Speaking of Idol, we'll be back on the road soon with auditions. I've already staked my claim to share a room with Simon. Eagerly awaiting that, he's really alot of fun, in more ways than one too. Love ya Simon baby. It will be great to see Paula again as well, though I just had her on my show, which was a great time. Always lovely isn't she? I can't forget my dawg Randy either. He and I share some good times picking on Cowell.

Well, that's all for now, not too much else to say really. Give me a call if you want to talk, or if you're in the LA area, we can hang out maybe? I'm always around.

You know what's nice about falling asleep next to a beautiful person? Waking up to see their angelic face the very next morning. Makes you want to stay in bed and just watch them sleep.

I haven't really told anyone yet, but Shana and I broke up. She wanted marriage, kids...the house with a white picket fence and I just couldn't. So, she got pissed at me, we had some words, came back from Hawaii a day early and left it at that. I talked to her yesterday after lunch, she came down to the studio. She means alot to me though and we've decided to remain friends because, she's my favorite shopping buddy! Plus, who else am I going to take to the spa? Well, I suppose I could do that myself, but it's always fun to gossip with her.

Clay is on the Early Show today, watch or die. That is all.

If you don't know who I am by now, you sure as hell better learn my name, because you'll be screaming it out loud later I am taking over the world!!!

That's right America, I, Ryan John Seacrest, am plotting to take over the world. In case you haven't caught on yet, I've already started my quest for world domination. It all began with American Idol, a job which I hold very dear to my heart. From Season 1 it was clear that I needed no one but myself to pull the weight of the show. That's why they kicked Dunkleman's ass off. Anyhow, after my popularity began to rise steadily, I acquired myself a series of offers and I'm now a world wide phenomenon. You can catch me Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and a few Mondays on Fox, American Idol, which is sadly ending next week. Those in the Hollywood and Higland area can catch me on the radio waves, Monday through Friday, from 6 to 10 a.m., and anyone who knows how to connect to the internet can tune in as well. Let's not forget to mention that I now host "America's Top 40". I think there was one more thing, oh right, how could I forget...my show, On Air, is on daily during the week, times and channels do vary, so be sure to check your local tv guide for listings. It's definitely something you do not want to miss out on, we have an amazing guest line-up every week, and you get to watch me! Does it get any better than that? Nope, not really. As if that wasn't enough for you, I have quite a few tv commercials for AT&T, the text messaging craze has really hit an all time high, don't you think?

I was named one of the “20 Young Guns Under 30 Who Hold Hollywood’s Future in Their Hands” by E! Online, and voted as one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful” for 2003.

I suppose I could also mention that I attended the University of Georgia where I majored in Journalism. It was during my freshman year at college where I was offered my first stint as a television show host for ESPN's "Radical Outdoor Challenge" it was basically a bunch of jocks running around like fools, trying to win money. What else is new really? But all that shit really doesn't matter now.

I'm blonde, beautiful and can be reached at { Seacrestr } I should probably also take this time to mention that I am currently un-available. Sorry ladies, and yes, please notice I said ladies. I'm not gay, nor am I in denial about it, but if you even mention it...well, that's threat enough. Who am I dating? We'll find out after...ha, just kidding. That would be the incredibly gorgeous Shana W. Together we enjoy long walks on the beach, making out in public and teasing each other on my radio show.

What else about me? Let's see...I love wine, can't get enough. I'll only drink bottled water and I enjoy weekly manicures and monthly pedicures. On occasion I'll do the whole tanning booth thing, but it's really not that good for the skin.

I've been a pretty busy guy lately, but if you're lucky you can catch me around sometimes.
