Ryan Seacrest named queen of West Hollywood Halloween celebration

Yesterday in West Hollywood, at “the largest Halloween street party in the United States,” Ryan Seacrest participated in the festivities as the “Queen of the Carnaval.”

Really.

The Idol host has long insisted he’s not gay, despite the homoerotic banter and rumors. Even if he’s not gay, at least he has a sense of humor about it. Because at the West Hollywood Costume Carnaval, he “sat as queen,” according to the Associated Press.

The honor isn’t mentioned on his official web site, at least not yet.
