    Gross!

  2. Normades says:

    He totally creeps me out.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      He does! What self respecting man would date and invest in a relationship with a woman half his age? Afraid of a strong and confident woman so he signs himself up with someone who he can “manage”, whereas Leo is the same way.
      Sick….both of them!

      • Juls says:

        Afraid of strong confident woman? Yes. I also believe there is another aspect to it too. They know more mature women with more life experience will see right through them and their b.s. and won’t WANT to date these guys. Whereas someone like Keanu Reeves…….well, you get the idea.

      • observer says:

        Julie’s spot on. as someone who was a teenager/YA with low self esteem and depressive, mental difficulties… i fell for the kind of BS these type of guys of a certain older age are full of a few times before i fking wised up. and i kept falling for them, because i have daddy issues.

        with that said, luckily i DID escape out of these relationships and finally find one that truly works for me. with someone my own age, who is a zero bullshit person.

        it still disgusts me every time i see it being so obvious though, but i always feel bad for the girl (examples: Courtney Stodden, Amelia Hamlin…) because they probably are suffering from the same issues i was that lead to being in that situation.

    Every one is an adult here, even if this gives you the heaves.They are BOTH getting what they want out of it, no one’s business but theirs. Let’s not be the relationship police.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Hasn’t Ryan had an issue with sexual assault / harassment before which got brushed aside because she had no “evidence”? Yeah so I’m not in a huge rush to give him the benefit of the doubt.

      They’re both adults? Hurray… He’s not dating a child… the bar is literally on the floor.

      • Mel says:

        I’m not giving him anything. Let’s not infantilize women by assuming they have no agency. Until SHE says he’s done something , I’m going to mind my own business. It’s not “woke” , helpful or fighting for women to do this, forming a virtual mob to go after people with pitchforks and torches because YOU don’t like their relationship. I give both side-eye because I think he’s should go with people closer to his own age and if he wasn’t rich and famous she wouldn’t spit on him if he was on fire. It still isn’t our business.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Last I heard about this guy, there were rumors that he was employing beards. I dunno, I don’t watch any programs he’s on/produces, never have, so I’m probably way TF out of the loop.

        The age difference says more about his faults/weakness than hers, though clearly she is using him to be a social climber. What else would a “social influencer” do?

    • Jess says:

      Ryan? Is that you?

    • ElleV says:

      I get where you’re coming from, but I feel it’s fair to criticize the older/more powerful party in relationships where there is a big differential in money, fame or age, for the same reason I’d criticize a doctor who sleeps with patients – doesn’t matter if they’re both consenting adults, the power imbalance makes it sus.

      It doesn’t mean people shouldn’t date younger or older etc. But I do think people in Ryan’s position should get a clear message that *they* are responsible for acknowledging and managing that power imbalance and any scrutiny it brings, rather than everyone just pretending it doesn’t exist or putting that burden on the younger/less established person to answer for the relationship (see: Zach Braff and Florence Pugh)

    • lunchcoma says:

      This is a gossip site. There’s not much to talk about here if we’re going to declare discussing people’s relationship choices off limits.

      She has agency and can choose to date him, but I’m also going to judge him for seeking out partners who are nowhere close to his level of fame, wealth, or experience. It doesn’t speak well of men when their relationships are with women who they can easily treat as unequal.

      • Becky says:

        You could join the Q-anon level conspiracy theory posts about the Royal family

      • lunchcoma says:

        Thank you, Becky, for reminding me to be grateful that we now have new celebrity couples to talk about, even if I dislike all the current ones! I wish Harry and Meghan well, but I don’t have much say about them anymore.

      • Desert Lizard says:

        Exactly. It’s funny to me that people come to a gossip site and then judge us for gossiping. Celebrities put their lives out there bc they want people to talk and the ones who don’t want folks chatting about them, don’t put their business in the street.

      • Watson says:

        @Becky LOL. True! 🤣

    • Call_me_al says:

      Let’s not be the comment police.

    • observer says:

      I’m one of those people who would absolutely fight in defense OF the legality of it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not disgusted by it. i can believe the consistency of the law should be upheld, and that adults should have as much freedom as possible without harming society via that “freedom” – but that doesn’t mean i can’t find this gross.

      i’m speaking as someone who got into multiple relationships w/ way older guys as a teenager/YA and was taken advantage of, intentionally and unintentionally, by their life experience and the way it was able to manipulate me for years.

      don’t get me wrong though: i had some very happy “honeymoon” periods in these relationships too. sometimes, radical age differences DO work…but those are the exception. i find this gross because of my own experience i can project what i think is going on, not because i think radical age differences are inherently bad in every single case.

  4. Valerie says:

    When they’re over 20, it’s slightly less gross, but 23 still seems too young to me. I think 25 is a better starting point when it comes to age gap relationships, no matter how rich or mature you think you are.

    • tealily says:

      Agreed. I still might side-eye a huge age gap, but a 25-year-old is more likely to have something of their own going already.

      • Valerie says:

        Yeah, anecdotally, that’s when things started getting better for me. All the shit that had consumed me and had gotten in the way of having healthy relationships (not even age gap ones, lol) in my early 20s slowly stopped being a problem, and it was around then that I started to feel like I had truly “grown up.”

    • Emily says:

      25 is the age when the brain finishes developing. A 20-23 year old, to quote Britney, is “not a girl, not yet a woman.”

  5. EnormousCoat says:

    Ryan Seacrest reminds me of a ventriloquist doll. I am unnerved whenever I see his grinning face. I would be nervous around him. Is it just me?

    • tealily says:

      It’s like a Tom Cruise vibe. It feels like there isn’t a real person under there.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        a big YES to both of you.

        it’s like a robot who is trying to seem as human as possible but can’t quite pass.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Exactly you said it better than I did below. It is like he is just vacant

      • lucy2 says:

        You nailed it. It’s all a shiny veneer, nothing underneath.

    • Kkat says:

      It’s like there is some uncanny valley going on, like with really good AI that is close but you can tell something isn’t quite right.

    • myjobistoprincess says:

      @Enormouscoat LOL now that you’ve made the remark – it’s totally true and I will forever be unable to unsee him as ventriloquist doll. LOL

  6. Laughysaphy says:

    Ugh, I find Seacrest so repulsive.

  7. SusanRagain says:

    Well, my opinion on 20+ year age gaps in which the younger person is under 28-30 is as follows:
    The older partner wants control, has the power, status and money advantage, and especially wants the current partner too inexperienced to call their BS.

    Ryan S has no actual talent or skill that I can ID.
    No bleeding idea how he reached his level of wealth.
    He reminds of John Davidson from the ’70′s.
    So bland as to be invisible and yet $$ and success.
    IIRC, when he first started the gossip rumors were that he was Dick Clarks boy toy.
    Or maybe it was Merv Griffin. Geez, I am getting old.

    • Merricat says:

      Lord have mercy, Merv Griffin was absolutely loaded.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I am really not a fan of Seacrest, but come on! He does have talent. He’s VERY skilled at handling live TV or radio, which is a unique talent. You have to manage time, and you have to be able to manage people. He’s great at speaking/voice work. Not to mention he’s produced very successful TV shows (that I happen to not be a fan of).

      He’s achieved his level of wealth because he took his talent (radio voice work), moved it to TV (American Idol/Ryan and Kelly) did that for multiple decades AND produced shows that ran for decades (KUWTK, etc). I wouldn’t want to hang out with the guy, but let’s not pretend that he has no skill or talent.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        It’s actually Live with Kelly and Ryan. It’s her show. She got to choose who she wanted to cohost with. She’s been there the longest.

    • Truthiness says:

      Ryan’s big relationship with Merv Griffin is the one I want to hear about.

  8. Izzy says:

    Of course he is.

  9. Darla says:

    My god that Oscar de la Renta collection is gorgeous! I’m drooling.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      It is lovely

    • L4frimaire says:

      It really is gorgeous. The colors and prints are amazing. I want a beaded sweater with a ball gown skirt now. Definitely a 90s trend I hope comes back.

  10. nicegirl says:

    I’m 46, fave eldest turns 23 in July. I thought 46 year old dudes were DIS GUST when I was 23 and now cannot imagine romantically hanging w a 23 year old, omg, RIDIC.

  11. nicegirl says:

    Omg! Giardia is no joke. Shit

    • Susan says:

      My cat had giardia and it took us like hundreds of dollars at the vet to rid him of that shit. And man, it isn’t just garden variety diarrhea, it can stink up a three story townhouse. No joke.

  12. JT says:

    It’s nice to see a Raya match worked out for once.

  13. lucy2 says:

    He forgot the Plus 7 part of half your age plus 7.

  14. Janie says:

    Unpopular opinion here but I always thought the women were/are his beards it’s the same vibe that I’ve always gotten from Leonardo too but again it’s my personal opinion and more than likely could be wrong. It’s like they need to prove their prowess or masculinity in an age where they now can be open and accepted or they are just gross men who women especially an insta model see as jump offs to get or gain more clout and sponsorships.

    • Susan says:

      While I want to believe we have evolved as a society—and I think for the most part, we have—unfortunately I do think there are still people of a certain age/social class/political party/religion that would not watch/turn away from a performer/celebrity if they were gay and thus here we are, in 2021. And when you are trying to appeal to EVERYONE…

    • February-Pisces says:

      Yep they are pretty much beards. I think in Leo’s case he was a young teen heartthrob when he became famous. Young girls were obsessed with him and going to see his films. Plus he always plays the leading man. I think actors who come out don’t get the same opportunities. You have to convince your audience that you are really in love with your leading lady, plus straight guys wanna be just like you. He’s made great films and it sucks that audiences won’t believe your performance if you’re gay.

      As for Ryan I really don’t know why he’s still hiding in the closet, I don’t think anyone would care at all.

    • Cheryl says:

      My thought too. I’m always stumped that others don’t see this.

  15. Susan says:

    I wonder what Ryan and the IG girl talk about. I enjoy talking to the youths…but if I am honest with myself, I am asking them about THEM and learning about young people culture and I guess I kind of view it as my being a cultural anthropologist. I *loved* an in-depth discussion I had with my niece about “cheugy,” but I am not seriously concerned if I am cheugy.

    TLDR: do you think he *tries* to truly hang with the young cool kids or just owns that he isn’t (young and cool) and enjoys being around it?

  16. Tursitops says:

    Sure he is. Tell me another one.

  17. Lola says:

    He’s still portraying himself as hetero?

  18. Nev says:

    Stop this.

  19. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    So agree on Dua Lipa. She and Bebe Rexha are so pretty, but they always dress like their stylists hate them…
