Kelly Ripa has a lifestyle change, a part of which she attributes to co-host Ryan Seacrest. Kelly had earlier in January said Ryan had the credit of her decision to quit drinking, although she now claims she has held to the decision not because of her co-host, but out of the feeling she got after abandoning the bottle.
The Emmy Winner must have been a heavy drinker as she joked that 2019’s total wine purchased recorded a downtick following her decision.
According to People, the 49-year-old has not had a bottle for nearly three years. She opened up to people about the ordeal, where along with her girlfriends, decided to have a sober month and quit alcohol for the entire 30 day period.
Ryan coincidentally came in at the time of their commitment with friends, and so likes to claim he came to the show, and she quit drinking. As Ripa reveals, one month sober felt great, and she felt looking better, and never went back to drinking.
Speaking to People, Ripa revealed that she had been a smoker and quit the habit 25 years ago. According to her, quitting smoking was a struggle, and her experience in abandoning the bottle was nothing to compare.
Smoking had aspects that were scary to the then younger Ripa. She thought of the fact that it could result in the killer cancer, and she did not want to die at an early age. However, there was one thing that was quite terrifying for her, the wrinkles associated with smoking.
Although she did not want to seem as if to compare alcohol and cigarette, Ripa could not fail to note how only a few people asked her about her decision to stop smoking, and how everyone was on her after she stopped drinking.
She reportedly chose her sober lifestyle and began a check on her diet. She currently focuses on foods high in alkaline, as opposed to acidic meals. Her life is now focused on excellence in nutrition and fitness, with the mother of three exercising every day.
Ryan ironically loves to take credit for Ripa’s lifestyle change, although he ironically hasn’t quit drinking. However, he is a responsible man based on what he revealed about his drinking schedule. According to him, it’s impossible to drink on a weekday but loves a two-hour meal on weekends with some wine.
While Kelly enjoys her new life, she has become a social media sensation as well, with some of her revelations causing a stir. Last year, she shocked fans after disclosing that there was a mirror behind her bedroom door, which she hadn’t noticed despite being 11 years in the house.
