Access Hollywood host Billy Bush phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest from Sochi and admitted conditions are not as bad as journalists have made it out to be with #SochiProblems on Twitter.
When it comes to those pictures of yellow water some journalists have posted from the Winter Olympics, Billy jokes, “That’s scotch … Listen, the water is fine … my hotel is fine.”
As for security and whether or not he feels safe, the host admits that leading up to the trip to Russia he was nervous. However, now being there, he feels much better. “Vladimir Putin is here. If it’s safe for him, it’s safe for me.”
Billy is in Sochi to cover the Winter Olympics for NBC and has been doing things, like getting pedicures and experiencing the culture by visiting the Russian sanatoriums.
“I screamed like a girl … it’s a very odd feeling,” Billy says of the fish pedicure. He adds that tonight on NBC we’ll see his trip to the spa, which features him getting into a barrel with Olympian Scott Hamilton and testing out Lady Gaga‘s vibrating egg.
Tune into NBC and Access Hollywood tonight to catch Billy.
