Seacrest: "Simon Cowell is Pompous" 4/7/06
TV star Ryan Seacrest has blasted Simon Cowell as the "most
pompous and egotistical" person he's ever worked with.
The American Idol host insists the outspoken judge's elitist behavior
onscreen is genuine, but acknowledges that's part of his appeal.
He says, "Simon definitely believes his own hype. He asked us to
address him as 'your highness' at a dinner party.
"I guess his ego is part of his charm, but he's one of the most
pompous and egotistical people I've ever worked with."
