It's no secret that Jennifer Lopez went all out for her 50th birthday! Since it fell on Wednesday, it was only right to have the birthday bash that evening.

Ryan Seacrest apparently got a "direct invitation" from J.Lo prior to the party and RSVP'd without realizing that the party was in Miami. As we all know, Ryan works in New York on most mornings to film Live With Kelly and Ryan.

Ryan knew it was worth the effort to fly there and back before he had to be at work the following morning. “I’ve known her for a long time. I’m going, I’m getting down there; I’m getting back in time and I’m gonna be there because I got the personal invite,” he shared.

The geographical issue wasn't the only problem Seacrest ran into. According to People, the guy at the front door told him he was not on the list.

 “So I say, ‘Clearly, there must be a mistake … she invited me personally. Can I see the list?’ Well, sure enough, there’s Ryan T. and Ryan Z., there’s no Ryan Seacrest.”

After admitting that he was the first one at the party and that he had to make a phone call to help prove that he was invited, Ryan eventually was allowed into the party.

Moral of the story: Even if you're as recognizable as Ryan Seacrest, you can still get denied at a Hollywood birthday party!
