Ryan Seacrest has a mad crush on Selena Gomez, is trying to hook up: LOL?

Selena Gomez

After Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough broke up last month after a two-year contract relationship, speculation immediately began as to who Julianne would date next. My first guess was, of course, that Tom Cruise would give her a call (and perhaps he already has, and we just don’t know it yet), but then last weekend, Julianne was reportedly getting flirty and rubbing up on Alex Pettyfer at Coachella. I am quite curious to see who lands Julianne because, even though she’s not a good actress, she’s still a fairly hot commodity as far as the dating scene goes. I am assuming that lots of dudes would want to get with her.

In the midst of all of Julianne’s options, I never even thought about who Ryan Seacrest would end up with for his next coupling. Strange, right? The dude completely seems asexual to me, so I figured he’d retreat to his piles of money and maybe cry a little bit about his lost lady love. According to a new story in this week’s Enquirer, Ryan does indeed have his eye on a new girl … Selena Gomez. Are you giggling yet? Poor Ryan:

Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest has flipped for Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez! The saucy Spring Breakers hottie apparently caught Ryan’s eye when she dropped by his L.A. radio show. But at 38, sources say the “American Idol” host is afraid he’s too old for the talented 20-year-old singer.

“Selena showed up looking super sexy n a low-cut top, and she totally flirted with Ryan,” said an insider. “At one point he asked her if the lyrics to her new single, ‘Come & Get It,’ were about the Biebs, and Selena said, half-joking, that they were actually about him!”

After the interview, Ryan — who recently split from former “Dancing with the Stars” pro Julianne Hough — told pals that he’d love to ask Selena for a date, said the source. “Ryan thinks they would have a great time together,” revealed the source. “The problem is that he’s afraid she’d laugh and tell him he’s old enough to be her dad — which in fact, he is.”

Despite that, Ryan hinted to Selena’s people that he’s interested, hoping to sidestep the embarrassment of asking her directly and being shot down, said the source. “Ryan is used to dating younger women,” the source continued. “After all, Julianne was just 24. So dating Selena wouldn’t be that much different. I’m sure tha tif Selena’s pals tell Ryan she’d go out with him, she’ll be getting a call. Selena’s expressed interest in seeing older, more mature men, but I’m not sure that means she’s looking for someone who’s pushing 40!”

[From Enquirer, print edition, April 29, 2013]

I can easily believe this story. Ryan seems like the type of guy who likes to call the shots, and he probably assumes that a very young lady (like Selena — she’s only 20, dude!) is more likely to put up with that sort of thing. Although the (alleged) fact that he told “her people” that he was interested is about as romantic as Julianne saying “the deal is done” about Ryan. It all just sounds so impersonal, doesn’t it?

Meanwhile, Selena has just been spotted touching down in Norway, which is also where Justin Bieber happens to be at this very moment. Ruh roh.

  2. Agnes says:

    gross. creepy.

  3. Ronnie says:

    Eeeew this grosses me out. Selena still looks like a 15 yr old to me. He may be 40, but he has the dentures of an 80 yr old. That makes the age diff at least 60+ to me. Ps wats with the blue steel in the second pic ??? Seedy

  4. Lucy2 says:

    Ew. That is all.

  5. Charlotte says:

    I know she’s of age, but she looks so young. Skeevy. Also, just come out, Ryan. It might actually make you likeable.

  6. Miss Kiki says:


  7. Bijlee says:

    ….that is disgusting. Dear Ryan…..STOP.

  8. andy says:

    This story is gross.

    Poor Ryan. He does look like a frog.

    ” The dude completely seems asexual to me,…”

    Really? I picture a p*nis as a natural addition to his smiling mouth.

    Off topic: Why the bleeding h*ll are peplums coming back into style?

    • lori says:

      ^ all of this!

    • Tastykakes says:

      The peplum thing: In a few years people will be looking back on those peplumed pictures and wonder why they ever thought adding what appears to be a literal spare tire of extra weight around their midsection was a good idea.

      Please come out Ryan.

      • Dinah says:

        They didn’t get a double-tap zombie style when they died last time in the late 80s-early 90s. Ugh. Hope someone puts an extra shell in the shotgun (figuratively) this time around.

  10. Katie says:

    If she’s dumb enough to date Justin Bieber, then why not “date” Ryan Seacrest? It’s the perfect bearding situation – he’s so busy that you rarely see him, and he’s got loads of money.

    …On second thought, Ryan, call me! I’m not as dumb as she is and you won’t have to deal with the drama that comes with anyone under the age of 25.

  11. kibbles says:

    I’ve never followed Seacrest closely because I’ve never watched American Idol, but he looks so creepy in these photographs!! I can’t imagine why any woman would want to be with him other than for his money. He’s not ugly but just really weird and creepy. He gives me the chills.

  12. Joiq says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with age differences. However, I think it depends on how old one is. When I was 20, and if I brought home a dude that was in his 30s (sheesh even 28) I would’ve gotten my a$$ beat. Truth.

  13. Lizzie K says:

    I really, really detest Ryan Seacrest. I hold him responsible for coming up with the idea of televised Kardashians, and as I recall, he even tried to foist Dina Lohan and poor little lost Ali Lohan on us as “stars.”

    I know he’s just giving the audience what (too many) of them want, but you can say that about cigarette companies too. It’s despicable, even if it’s legal and, of course, profitable.

    He can’t even be honest about his sexual preferences, and WHY? He’s not a leading man who fears turning off a female audience. He’s just a crap peddler, and this is more of his crap.

    He’s gross, his shows are gross, and the idea of him playacting romance with Selena is gross.

    I’m going now to wash my hands and rinse out my mouth.

    • SydneySpy says:

      Until your post, Lizzie, I had no idea who this bloke was. So, HE’S responsible for a lot of the televised crap? If so, he’s a scumbag.

      • Lizzie K says:

        Yep, SidneySpy, his production company does just about everything that’s on the E network (which is all-Kardashian, all the time). He does a bunch of other stuff too, including American Idol and a radio show, but it’s the E stuff I detest him for.

  14. anon33 says:

    OMG this is gross. And Ryan REALLY looks like the Geico gecko in that header pic.

  15. Lolly says:

    I just threw up. Who’s next Ryan? Honey Boo Boo? Yuck

  16. Me says:

    Ryan just come out of the closet. I think Tom Cruise & Ryan Seacrest would make a wonderful couple. Both little men with big egos.

  17. StaCat1 says:

    It’s from the Enquirer so I don’t know….could be total BS. But it is a SUPER creepy idea-ICK. She is 20!?!?!

    She is such a pretty, seemingly level headed and talented girl. Though she does have bad taste in guys (when you are 20 you are still dating guys & boys- not men).

    Come back to LA, Selena. Don’t get involved with all the junk little boy Biebs is on.

  18. april says:

    I’m not a fan of her, but she really does look cute in these photos. The outfit is darling on her. The thought of her and Ryan is just gross.

  19. Me Three says:

    What is wrong with all these guys? Ryan, Bradley Cooper, Leo, George C, Alec Baldwin..all of them are like dirty old pervy uncles. Yuck! And why are girls so young going with these idiots? Are they so afraid to try and make their careers with hard work? God I’m embarrassed for all the HIlarias, Stacy K’s, VS Models, and all those other “women” who seem to think the only way they can “make it” is to hook up with some old, rich and famous guy.

  20. harrison says:

    She only looks like a little kid at awards shows. she looks her age in other pics

  21. crtb says:

    Yuck – too old for her!

  22. Ruffian9 says:

    she must have a cute older brother

  23. Emma13 says:

    Stop Ryan, there are many women your own age who are beautiful who would would want to be with you *ew* She is way too young for you and I wouldn’t blame her for laughing at you, if this is indeed true.

    If Selena’s new song is indeed about JB then he may be “ready for it” seeing as she is always available to him because she “isn’t done yet”

    • Emma13 says:

      Oh, btw she is cute, but thats just it. It’s hard for me to see her as sexy when she consistently looks 16. I don’t get why guys-older guys, and guys her own age- like her so much. It’s kinda skeevy.

  25. Pat says:

    I think Justin Bieber would be more Ryan Seacrest type! Ryan has become a bit frighten.
    He is going backwards instead of forward.
    Selena Gomez mom need to call the cop on that guy (Seacrest)
