The big news on American Idol last night wasn't that Sanjaya Malakar was finally shown the door.
It was the confiding whisper that Ryan Seacrest passed along to Melinda Doolittle while cameras were rolling. Did you miss it?
Apparently, Ryan was afraid that Mindy Doo wasn't an avid reader of The Hollywood Gossip and missed the day when Shana Wall insisted that the American Idol host was heterosexual. So Seacrest felt the need to remind the singing sensation last night.
No offense to Doolittle, but we're a little surprised Ryan didn't make this declaration to past contestants such as Alaina Alexander or Antonella Barba. They lacked Melinda's vocal talent, but made up for it in other, nude ways.
Anyway, we're gonna consult with Neil Patrick Harris to see if his gaydar detects whether or not Seacrest is lying here. We'll get back to you.
