Ryan Seacrest broke up with Shayna Taylor for the third time in eight years over the summer, but reportedly, the TV personality wants to give their relationship yet another chance, OK Magazine reported. The only problem? Shayna isn’t willing to get back together if it means taking second place to his career.
The 45-year-old host apparently misses having Shayna around for her support and is reconsidering his decision.
“He seemed so sure that breaking up was the right thing to do,” a source claimed, “but not having Shayna there to lean on and talk to has really gotten to him. He misses her so much.”
But the 28-year-old food blogger and podcaster apparently doesn’t see a future together because she is tired of dealing with Ryan’s extremely busy schedule, which includes recording his podcast on top of co-hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan and appearing on American Idol.
“She feels he still doesn’t appreciate how much she sacrificed four years ago to move to New York for him,” the insider said. “He’s promising to make more time for her, but Shayna’s not going to be messed with a fourth time.”
The two met at an L.A. restaurant eight years ago and she made the move to be near him four years later. They split briefly in 2014 and again in February 2019 before getting back together in October 2019. In June of this year, they called it quits again and their friends said this breakup appeared to be permanent, as Fox News reported back in June.
But apparently, it isn’t necessarily a done deal as Ryan considers his options.
Reportedly, Shayna isn’t the only one who feels like Ryan is too busy for the important things in his life.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, his co-host Kelly Ripa is tired of his lack of commitment to their show. After he missed two days of filming while he awaited test results from a COVID-19 scare, Kelly apparently began to feel that he wasn’t all-in. When he reportedly requested the ability to film from home, she shot down the idea as a way to warn producers that she was the main draw of the show.
“The assumption amongst a lot of the TV elite was that Ryan was the ratings machine behind Live With Kelly and Ryan,” a source said.
But after his absence, ratings were up, showing that she could bring the audience without Ryan.
