Ryan Seacrest can add a new title to his long list of jobs: guardian angel!
Last month, the American Idol host, 39, cut a check for thousands of dollars from his personal account to the senior producer of his KIIS-FM morning show, single mother Patty Rodriguez, to help her get back on her feet after her home burned down.
“Ryan is one of the most generous guys in Hollywood, and he was heartbroken to learn that his colleague had lost everything,” shares an insider. “He even reached out to famous friends like Jessica Alba, who donated soaps and detergents from The Honest Company.” The source then added, “Ryan has a huge heart, but he doesn’t want any fame for it.”
Sounds like the busiest man in show biz may also be the nicest!
