During Ryan Seacrest's inebriated escapades on American Idol this week, he made a pretty flat joke directed at former co-host Brian Dunkleman's current irrelevance!
Dunkleman, of course, responded by pretending to take the high road, but he still managed to take some equally flat digs at Secreast!
People really came to my defense, which is a satisfying thing. But it was a joke. Well, it was an attempt at a joke. But unfortunately for Ryan, instead of a laugh, he got applause. That’s never really been his strong suit. But it was a joke, and whether it was mean-spirited or not is irrelevant. A joke’s a joke; you can either take it or you can’t. And quite honestly, once you’ve had Jimmy Kimmel say in a monologue that you should be punched in the face, and at this point you’d probably be receptive to a knife in the gut, I think what Seacrest said was pretty tame.
We think that congratulations are in order to both of them!
We can all agree that neither are particularly funny!
