Ryan Seacrest shall be sober as a bat when the clock strikes midnight later this night — a rule he is imposing on himself amid CNN’s widely-reported alcohol ban for his or her NYE hosts.
We bumped into the ‘AI’ alum Saturday on the streets of NYC — this as he was preparing to undergo the marathon that’s his annual gig with ABC … particularly, emceeing “Dick Clark‘s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” and serving to Disney ring in 2023, which he is finished for some time now.
Of course … we had to ask the man about his ingesting routine for the evening, particularly after he publicly sided with CNN brass this week about limiting the community’s on-air boozing.
In mild of that, Ryan tells us he will not be imbibing closely whereas working. In truth, he says he is gonna save the great things ’til properly after 12:00 AM, presumably when he is off digital camera. It’s attention-grabbing he says that … it will appear Ryan firmly believes in holding issues skilled.
It’s a bit ambiguous whether or not that is a shot at Anderson Cooper/Andy Cohen and the remainder of the CNN group — who’ve a rep for downing pictures throughout their broadcast — however once we requested RS if there was any shade … he steered it was all love for everybody in his place.
While Ryan shall be steering away from booze by way of most of tonight, all eyes shall be on CNN to see in the event that they observe the orders they have been given … or in the event that they minimize free like years previous.
