hosts Ryan and Brian aren’t gay.
American Idol hosts Ryan Seacrest and Brian Dunkleman aren’t gay. We know this because they both tell TV Guide that they aren’t gay. Seriously, they have girlfriends. So they’re not gay. Really.

In his interview with TV Guide online a few weeks ago, Brian said, “Personally, I would rather people not think that…. I’ve got a girlfriend and I’m very happy.” Right, okay, he’s straight. A few weeks later, Ryan started his interview with TV Guide with this: “I saw the [Brian] Dunkleman headline, and I’m straight.”

Okay, we got it: Both hosts of American Idol are straight. Really.

+ plus: FOX offered scripted insults to Simon, who rejected them, saying, “we’re not there to be amusing, we’re there to be honest.”
+ and: “Would J. Lo make it on American Idol?”
