Cowell-Seacrest feud? Still ON!
The Hollywood Reporter recently released their top 50 picks for the most powerful players in reality TV! Some choices are expected, while others, the average reality TV viewer might not ever have even heard of!
Looks like Simon Cowell's longtime rival and frenemy, Ryan Seacrest, beat him out for the top spot this year!!
While the list ranked the Idol host and Keeping Up With The Kardashians producer as number one, the X Factor creator/mentor/producer was bumped to number eight!
Ouch! That's sure to bruise Cowell's ego, LOLz! We're sure Simon is ignoring every and any call from Ry today!!
Second on the list? While he might not be a household name like Seacrest or Cowell, Paul Telegdy has contributed to the unscripted genre in the form of The Voice and America's Got Talent, as the President of alternative and late-night programming for NBC.
Telegdy beats out Mike Darnell, President of alternative programming for Fox, who came in at number three and even the CEO of the production company that brings us The Voice, Mark Burnett!
One person Cowell's probably happy he got a better ranking than is Idol and SYTYCD producer, Nigel Lythgoe — his other reality rival — who came in at 34!
Kardashian mama Kris Jenner also made the list, coming in at 46 and Bethenny Ever After's Bethenny Frankel finishing at number 49!
Talk about some reality powerhouses!
