Access hosts will be asking celebrities about the Ryan Seacrest issue

Despite E!'s plans to speak to only "friendly' celebrities and screen many interviews for mentions of Ryan Seacrest's sexual misconduct allegations before airing them, it seems that interviewers on other shows will not be avoiding the Ryan Seacrest topic. The executive producer of Access (formerly Access Hollywood) is preparing the show's hosts to ask celebrities questions about the MeToo movement and then “we will ask them whether or not they will talk to Ryan Seacrest.” Interestingly, Access is an NBC show and NBC also owns E!.
