Is Ryan Seacrest “relieved” Kim Kardashian is filling in for Kelly Ripa on Monday’s “Live”? That’s the claim from a webloid, with has a history of making up stories. Gossip Cop can correct this fabrication. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.

As Gossip Cop reported, it was recently announced that the reality star will guest co-host “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Monday while Ripa remains on vacation, joining Seacrest, the show’s regular co-host and the executive producer of “Keeping Up With Kardashians.” In Celeb Dirty Laundry’s second concocted article of the week on this, the outlet maintains Seacrest is “breathing a huge sigh of relief” over Kardashian temporarily filling in for Ripa. Without any evidence or sources to back up its bogus premise, the repeatedly discredited outlet asserts Seacrest is “relieved” because there’s “behind-the-scenes friction” between him and Ripa.

But the website doesn’t know what it’s talking about. CDL has simply manufactured this story out of whole cloth, using Kardashian’s one-off appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” to stir up a nonexistent feud between Ripa and Seacrest. There is no “friction” between the co-hosts, nor is Seacrest “relieved” that Kardashian is filling in for his colleague. But in case it wasn’t obvious enough, a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the report is “made-up” and has “no truth” to it.

As Gossip Cop noted above, this is not the first time the often disproven site has posted an inaccurate tale about Kardashian’s upcoming co-hosting gig on the morning show. Earlier this week, we corrected the blog for wrongly contending Ripa was quitting “Live” over being “replaced” by Kardashian for a single episode. The outlet ridiculously asserted that it was an “insult” to Ripa to be replaced by Kardashian. The only ones who should be insulted are the readers of CDL, who are fed untrue stories about celebrities.
