Update: Crystal texted Katelyn Epperly and said she was betrayed by Seacrest but doing fine.  Katelyn and a radio host mock Seacrest live on air and further proves that Ryan is acting like a complete douche this season. 

Front runner and Simon Cowell favorite Crystal Bowersox was thrown under the bus by Ryan Seacrest a couple of days ago quite possibly to get all the heat off him and onto someone else.

The host of American Idol has shown some bizarre behaviour this season with his off the wall comments and general tasteless attitude towards the judges.  Most recently coming under fire for the crude statements to Adam Lambert and dancing during Tim Urban’s performance of “I Can’t Help Falling In Love”. 

TMZ reported a couple of days ago that Bowersox almost quit the show and walked off but Seacrest saved the day by getting the contestant to change her mind.  While the story has been confirmed by Eonline, it seems to me that Seacrest needed something to get him back in the lime light in a more positive way. 

Bowersox tweeted “We all have moments of doubt. As much as I miss my kid, the big picture is this: im doing this for him and my fans. I’m having the time of my life!” 

This could perhaps put Crystal in danger of going home as many fans are disappointed with this news but the bottom line is this should have never became public knowledge.  Seacrest should be ashamed for allowing this to get leaked.
