Ryan Seacrest...takes poke @ TMZ's Harvey Levin! Meow!

When the roving snoops at MTZ ambushed Ryan Seacrest outside of a trendy watering hole in Hollywood this past week, the gossip monger got more than he bargained for.

For example, in response to the encounter, the high-profile Disc Jockey (MySpace friend) proceeded to take a jab at TMZ 's Harvey Levin (King of Gossip) out-of-the-blue.

After determining that Seacrest was a fan of Three's Company, the sexy bachelor was asked if he thought Levin bore any resemblance to Mr. Roper (a character on the long-running hit TV sitcom).

Ryan half-turned, eyed the TMZ paparazzi up-and-down, and quipped - "about this much" - as he deftly used a hand gesture to infer that Levin was half his size in stature.(short!).

When the camera flared back up on the kids in the studio, one of the young tongue waggers appeared to be taken aback by the obvious put-down.

"I thought Ryan was your buddy" he quipped.

"He is," Levin shot back, with a perplexed look on his face.

That's show biz, I guess.
