Bachelor” host Chris Harrison called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Monday to say, “I was listening to the show this morning and I had to call in to make sure that you were okay after the mishap with the dictator.”

Chris, of course, was referring to the moment on the Oscar Red Carpet when Ryan got “ashed” by Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego General Shabazz Aladeen. “I could only see the side of your face, again, I had this look of astonishment and I though, ‘God, I think Seacrest is kind of pissed, is he going to go after him?'”

On How He Found Out He Was In The Back Of The Shot:
“Immediately my tweets and everything else light up that I was laughing at Seacrest when he was getting ‘ashed’ by the dictator. I wasn’t really laughing at you, as much as it was just the astonishment of what was going on at the Oscar Red Carpet, which is usually as you know the most buttoned-up, not boring, but it’s a very proper place”

On The Biggest Moment On The Red Carpet:
“I was mad as hell that it wasn’t me. I was immediately jealous that I wasn’t part of the biggest moment on the Red Carpet,” admits Chris. “I flashed back immediately to the Jennifer Garner moment, like he always gets the crazy good moments and it’s not fair.”
