More proof that Ryan Seacrest is taking over the media world -- he is about to be the highest paid Reality TV host in existence.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ryan has signed a deal for $45 million for three years of work. His duties will include hosting American Idol, of course, and work exclusively for CKX, the parent company of 19 Entertainment.
The deal will only cover broadcast-network work, which means that Ryan will be able to keep his cable gigs as E!'s main man. He will continue to be the host of E! News and keep up with his production of Keeping Up with the Kardashians for E!. He's also got a future Jamie Oliver reality series in the works for ABC.
Dude is so in the money it's sick!
