AceShowbiz - While Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa are getting along just fine, it is not the case for their fans. Following a new episode of their talk show "Live with Kelly and Ryan", fans of the "American Idol" host were coming at Kelly for allegedly being "rude" to him on the show.
Some fans apparently were annoyed by the fact that Kelly kept interrupting him. "You need to tell Kelly to stop interrupting you. That's very rude," one disgruntled fan wrote in the comments section of Ryan's Instagram post. "She does it throughout the show … every show. Very annoying. The show's ratings go up because of you. She is a boring host."
Another fan added, "Very annoying. The show's ratings go up because of you." Echoing the sentiment, someone else commented, "I agree one million percent. It would sure be nice to hear Ryan finish a story. I started noticing that too, she never use to do that, seems it started after they got back in the studio, you can tell Ryan just kind of holds his breath."
Another comment read, "I hate when she talks about herself. She goes on.. and on…she brags too much. Not everyone wants to [hear her] story. We'd like to hear from Ryan, too."
In response to the backlash, some Kelly fans jumped to her defense. "I'm sorry but I don't agree that Kelly is a bad host," one person argued. "I watched her & Mark on the soaps . Always liked her . She might interrupt but her & Ryan are friends . They make a good show."
Neither Ryan nor Kelly has reacted to the social media debate between their fans.
When it came to "talking about herself," the fan seemingly referred to the Tuesday, June 28 episode of "Live with Kelly and Ryan". In the episode of the Emmy-winning morning show, the 51-year-old TV personality discussed the idea of having joint bank accounts with her husband Mark Consuelos, explaining that studies show the strongest relationships are those where the couple shares accounts.
When Ryan admitted that he wasn't too keen on the idea of marriage, Kelly quickly advised, "I understand that, listen, it's not for everyone. I'm not a marriage pusher, I'm married, but trust me, it's not for everyone. I mean sometimes I'm like, 'Is it for us?' "
