‘American Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest was on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Monday and was quized about season two contestant Corey Clark’s affair with Paula Abdul. “Well, I think there’s a lot of hearsay when it comes to this situation,” Seacrest told Leno. “I mean, the way I look at it is, you’ve got a contestant, a a former contestant that, years later, comes out and says this at the same time he’s trying to promote a song.” That prompted Leno to fume, “And he’s a little weasel.” Seacrest added, “Yeah, he’s trying to promote a song. I mean, the guy’s an opportunist. He’s trying to promote a song that would never get played or any recognition unless he’s got some story attached to it. And I think that’s what this kid is doing. Paula is a dear friend and I 100% support her.”
