Ryan Seacrest Punk'd Planned, Kutcher Admits

by at . Comments

Fortunately for Ryan Seacrest he was out ... of a planned sketch to set up the American Idol host on an MTV comedy show.

Ashton Kutcher came clean to Seacrest when the TV and radio presenter taped an interview with the actor. Just before cameras started rolling on the chat, Kutcher revealed he had devised an elaborate practical joke - for the show, Punk'd - to make Seacrest think his new dream home was on an earthquake fault line.

"I was gonna pull something on you ... There was a small window when it (house) was in escrow," Kutcher said. "I wanted to get into your property and establish a fault line underneath your house and sink about half of it, sink the front of the house into the fault line.

We were shooting, so I couldn't do it at the time. You got really lucky because it would have been brutal."

At least Seacrest can take solace in the fact that he's leading our poll for favorite American Idol judge or host. Hang in there, Ry!

Dear Friends, Happy Fool's Day!! After just a few years of marriage, filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each other's throat for some time and felt that this was their last straw. When they arrived at the counselor's office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion.
"What seems to be the problem?"
Immediately, the husband held his long face down without anything to say. On the other hand, the wife began talking 90 miles an hour describing all the wrongs within their marriage. After 5 - 10 - 15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately for several minutes, and sat her back down. Afterwards, the wife sat there speechless.
He looked over at the husband who was staring in disbelief at what had happened. The counselor spoke to the husband, "Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!"
The husband scratched his head and replied, "I can have her here on Tuesdays and Thursdays." Happy April Fool's Day!
