He tells the mag that he knows Hudson will pull through this trying time. "I know Jennifer and I always liked her spirit, her strength, her charm, her charisma. She's a strong and a special girl."
Seacrest also says that he isn't the only member of the "Idol" family whose thoughts are with Hudson. " I talked to Randy [Jackson] the other day about it," Seacrest says. "We're just thinking about her."I love his hosting talent.Keep it up Ryan!
