Once again, Ryan Seacrest is scrambling to clear his name.

Back in November, the American Idol host tried to get ahead of the allegations with an op-ed titled "What Happened After I Was Wrongly Accused of Harassment" where he outlined the claims and his participation in a two-month investigation which ultimately cleared him of any wrongdoing.

But on Monday his accuser, E! stylist Suzie Hardy, went public with her side of the story. She even detailed some of the disgusting behavior of which she accused him.

On Tuesday's Live With Kelly And Ryan, he was noticeably mum about the whole thing. Currently his positions on that show, the Idol reboot, and E!'s red carpet coverage of the Oscars have not been affected by the scandal.

However, later in the day, Seacrest released an unequivocal statement basically saying he wasn't happy about having to be on the side calling a woman a liar — but he was going to anyway.
