Ryan Seacrest clearly loves to spoil his girlfriend!
The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host took his girlfriend, Shayna Terese Taylor, to Turks and Caicos for Memorial Day weekend, and the 26-year-old model couldn't help but share a sweet snap from their getaway to Instagram.
Steve Harvey may not be used to being the butt of the joke, but that's what's happened days after his shocking memo to staff got leaked and sent the Internet into a tizzy. Jerry O'Connell, comedian Jerry Minor and the warped minds at Funny or Die have teamed up to spoof the now-infamous staff memo—and it's pretty damn funny. In the Internet sketch, Minor plays the daytime talk show host who wants nothing other than some "me-time" to "relax," but gets visited by increasingly annoying and aggravating visitors (mostly O'Connell). O'Connell may not have gotten the gig at Live! With Kelly this week, but at least he's still got his sense of »
During a Wednesday appearance on Ktla Morning News, the 43-year-old actor (and one-time frontrunner for the Live gig) revealed that he knew he wasn't getting the full-time job.
"For those who don't know, I co-hosted the Live With Kelly, now Live With Kelly and Ryan show," O'Connell explained on-air. "I love it. I love her. It's just, I mean, you guys know, you do live TV every day, there's really nothing like it."
"I said it before and I'll say it again, doing it with her... Kelly's the best," he added.

Jerry O'Connell is admittedly a little bummed that he didn't get the co-hosting job with Kelly Ripa, but he wasn't surprised. The actor sat down on Ktla and revealed that he knew he wasn't going to land the gig even before Ryan Seacrest was named co-host. Still, he has nothing but kind words for the Live! show, Seacrest and Ripa, too. "I co-hosted the Live! With Kelly, now Live! With Kelly and Ryan show… I love her. It's just, there's really nothing like it. It just happens right there. The prep time is not a lot," he said. "There's something super fun about it, and I've said it before and I'll say it again, doing it with her, Kelly's the »
No bad blood here!

"Kelly and I have known each other for a long time and when this happened we were told to keep it a secret and we're not great at that," he noted. Ripa added, "We don't call it a secret anymore in my house, we call it a Seacrest."
"So excited to join this show!!" Seacrest tweeted. "@KellyRipa crushes every morning... one of my favorite people ever #livekellyryan"
