Drama! Multiple outlets have revealed that Ripa demanded Seacrest to cancel his appearance on GMA, which he was doing to promote the revival of American Idol, at the very last minute because of her beef with Strahan. 

 

“There’s still bad blood with Kelly and Strahan, and she doesn’t want history to repeat itself and Ryan to be lured to GMA too," a source told Page Six. "Ryan was scheduled to be on Wednesday’s show well in advance. He’s been on the show rundown for a week. Then yesterday, or maybe even as late as last night, Kelly threw a s–t fit and told him he couldn’t do GMA, so he pulled his appearance."

The source also said that Seacrest's last minute decision was done so he could stay in Ripa's good graces, as she is high in the ranks at Live and has a lot of power. “It’s very clear that Ryan wants to stay on her good side. She’s an executive producer on the show, so she has a lot of pull. It’s fair to say she has a lot of influence over him. He joined her show. It sounds like she still feels threatened,” the source continued.

A spokesperson for Seacrest has addressed the controversy, saying, "Ryan had wanted to appear on GMA with the new Idol judges … but with the constant shifting of various schedules, we determined yesterday, along with GMA, as well as ABC/Freemantle producers and publicity teams, that his schedule was too tight. To suggest any other reason for him not participating is completely false or a misunderstanding of the facts."
