A lot of the chatter online right now is about Samantha “Just Sam” Diaz winning Season 18 of American Idol.
But there is also a lot of chatter about Ryan Seacrest. There are clips of the show making their way around the internet questioning if the talk show host had a stroke. In the video below, Ryan stutters over his words and has a hard time finishing his sentence. Afterward, one of his eyes appears to be half shut. There were also many people online wondering if his health was okay.
His reps have put the rumors to rest and assure fans that his health is fine. Per Page Six, they said in a statement: “Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night. Like many people right now, Ryan is adjusting to the new normal and finding work-home balance, with the added stress of having to put on live shows from home.”
They also addressed why he wasn’t on Live With Kelly and Ryan today, adding, “Between ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan,’ ‘American Idol,’ ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest,’ and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he has been juggling three to four on-air jobs over the last few weeks, and he’s in need of rest. So today he took a well-deserved day off.”
