This season of American Idol is sure to be jam-packed with drama ... especially with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey sitting at the same judges' table.

After word spread that the two divas got into a screaming match during auditions in Charlotte, NC, host Ryan Seacrest opened up about the situation on KIIS-FM.

Seacrest told his audience: "It got heated between Nicki and Mariah. It was intense! I'll be honest with you . .. It went far last night. It did get intense."

During the AI fight, Minaj is heard saying, "I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out."

Ryan then adds:

    "These are all very different individuals with different perspectives and different opinions that provide for interesting conversation and dialogue and feedback for the contestants."

With AI competing against X Factor with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato AND The Voice with Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine ... makes us wonder if this diva drama was all staged to get people chattin' about Idol. Guess it worked!

While other multi-millionaires may hire assistants to help them with menial tasks like lugging luggage through LAX, Ryan Seacrest carts it around himself!

The radio personality/American Idol host/TV producer is said to have a net worth of $125 million, but that doesn't stop him from taking care of himself instead of hiring others to do it!

After buying Ellen DeGeneres' home for $37 million earlier this year and signing a deal with NBC to co-host the Olympics (he's returning was London when we snapped him) and contribute to the Today Show, it's estimated that Seacrest, 37, will pull in more than $50 million this year.

Life's a beach for Ryan Seacrest!

The American Idol host was having a blast playing in the ocean on a wave-runner in Saint Tropez on Monday, where he's currently vacationing with his mom and dad for the week.

Unfortunately Seacrest's girlfriend Julianne Hough is busy filming the upcoming romantic flick Safe Haven 3 with Josh Duhamel, in North Carolina, so she had to skip out on the fancy French vaycay -- bummer!

Later that afternoon, the producer of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was seen walking around the canals of Port Grimaud, and sipping champagne while taking in the sights on a boat trip. C'est la vie!

Did Ryan Seacrest pull an Ashton Kutcher and trade in Julianne Hough for a cougar?!

Not quite! The American Idol host did leave his girlfriend at home, though, for a family vacation to St. Tropez. The E! powerhouse strolled through the city arm-in-arm with his mom Connie, and cruised the open seas on a speedboat with his sister Meredith and the rest of his clan.

It's nice to see that the busiest man in Hollywood still takes time out of his jam packed schedule to relax! The radio deejay is always expanding his empire, and if the rumors are true, he will soon be the proud owner of Dick Clark productions!

We wonder if the Keeping Up with the Kardashians producer met up with Kimmy K and Kanye during his Parisian getaway?!

Ryan Seacrest is an amazing host ... a practical joker!

During last night's American Idol taping, Seacrest walks over to his girlfriend Julianne Hough in the audience and says:

    "Julianne would you take the mic for a second. There's something that's been on my mind for a while."

After reaching into his pocket for what we thought was going to be an engagement ring, Ryan says to Julianne:

    "No, it's not that. It's a question I've been meaning to ask you and I don't want you to feel uncomfortable. Will you...give this note I wrote to Tom Cruise? I'm such a big fan -- I loved him in Cocktail."

Julianne's reaction ... "Oh, God." What a tease!
