Suzie Hardy, former stylist for mega host and producer, Ryan Seacrest, says he sexually harassed her on a regular basis during work.

Hardy, a single mother with a preschool-age daughter says she landed the job as Seacrest’s personal stylist for “E! News” in 2006. The position provided good pay and a schedule that would allow her to pick up her child from school most workdays. But that’s when the young mother says everything changed, and not for the better.


According to a November letter from Hardy’s attorney addressed to cable channel E!, its corporate parent NBCUniveral, and Seacrest, the job became an ordeal as Seacrest subjected Hardy to years of unwanted sexual aggression — grinding his erect private part against her while clad only in his underwear, groping her private part, and at one point slapping her rear end so hard that it left a large welt still visible hours later. source

Hardy claimed that she endured the abuse for years out of concern over being able to provide for her daughter, and that the situation only ended in 2013, when, after reporting Seacrest’s actions to human-resources executives, her employment ended.
