We predict there will be tight t-shirts a-ripping and clumps of chest hair a-flying after Ryan Seacrest accused Simon Cowell of jealousy. The American Idol host claims that while a judge Cowell was “just so jealous of me… from Day One, he was envious of my career at such a young age.” Apparently now that Cowell is off AI and heading up The X-Factor, Ryan is under the impression Simon can’t physically hear the insults he says about him. Heads up to Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Who knows if Seacrest will take out his claws once you’re gone too?
Now that Cowell is off the American Idol set,Ã‚Â “There are less clouds of smoke. We start earlier. There’s less — what’s that English dish he always ordered for lunch? — Shepherd’s Pie,” snarks Seacrest. Hey! Shepard’s pie is delicious! Though Seacrest and Cowell were famously at each other’s throats the entire time AI was on air, last season seemed particularly tense between the two. After one extremely awkward encounter last March, Simon called Ryan Ã¢â‚¬Å“aggressiveÃ¢â‚¬Â on air, even asking him, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Do you want my job?Ã¢â‚¬Â Both tried to play the insults off as playful banter, but by the end of Season 9 we knew that dislike was genuine. Maybe this explains whyÃ‚Â Cowell locked horns with Ellen Degeneres when was on AI too.Ã‚Â He was just jealous of her sweet sexy dance moves.
