AceShowbiz - Ryan Seacrest reportedly wants to keep a distance from his New York staff. A new report suggests that the "Live with Kelly and Ryan" co-host would prefer if his staff didn't act like close friends with him.
"Ryan has been hiring people in NYC to join his team now that he is working with Kelly Ripa on the East Coast. But if anyone thinks that working for Ryan will lead to a meaningful friendship, think again," a source reveals to Naughty Gossip.
"In the interview you are told very clearly that Ryan is NOT a friend and you should not expect to get friendly with him," the source adds. "Staff that were hired have also been asked to sign a confidentiality form."
"Do not approach me while I'm in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Either knock or use the doorbell," the memo read. In response to the controversy, the 60-year-old TV host claimed that he just wanted "everyone to simply honor and respect" his privacy.
