“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.”

O’Conner revealed that though he was upset by the news, he wasn’t exactly surprised.

“I just left my house. I’ve been crying the entire day. This is my first public appearance,” he joked. “I knew. I did know. And it is a little scary, because you know some secret information that stockholders, like people of power… the decision that people in power have made.”

O’Conner added that there’s no hard feelings between Seacrest and him.

“He’s great. I know him. He’s great for that job. I still, like a weird ex, I watch them every morning. It’s like going to check your ex’s Facebook page, let’s see what they’re up to,” he joked.
