Kelly Ripa warned Ryan Seacrest to watch his back this week. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host was giving her usual backstage outfit-of-the-day video on Monday when she was joined by her co-host – 49-year-old Kelly tends to appear solo in the fashionista videos posted to the “Live!” Instagram account, but today broke the mold.
The video did outline Kelly’s green Intermix dress and Gianvito Rossi heels, but a special accessory sparked a conversation – and Kelly was on full form as usual.
The video kicked off by showing Kelly in her slinky, waist-flaunting, and long-sleeved dress. The blonde also wore a sky-high pair of stilettos, plus a black beret bearing the Modelland logo.
“I like the hat, Gelman!” Kelly said as Ryan approached the backstage dressing room.
“Who doesn’t love a beret,” a male voice was then heard saying, with Kelly replying:
“Listen, when I’m discovered at Modelland… you’ll be sorry!”
“I’ll show you, I’ll show everybody” she added with a little sass before Ryan joined her to show off his ultra-stylish Ralph Lauren suit.
The video continued with Ryan admitting that he currently has a fondness for Ralph Lauren after having watched the American designer’s documentary.
Ryan then looked at Kelly’s hat.
“Is that a Modelland cap?” he asked.
“Thank you for noticing,” Kelly replied flirtatiously while striking a pin-up pose. The “American Idol” host then mentioned Tyra Banks, asking if Kelly was “trying to get in with the casting directors.” Modelland is Tyra’s
modeling experience attraction, based out of Santa Monica.
“I’m just saying…one day, I’ll be discovered and you’ll all be sorry. Ok?” Kelly responded.
Kelly has made major headlines this month for finally opening up on why she quit drinking nearly three years ago – the star had originally divulged the news on-air, with the vibe seeing media outlets dub Ryan’s 2017 “Live!” join as the reason behind it.
“Ryan likes to blame himself for me stopping drinking, he’s like, ‘I got here and you stopped drinking.’ It really was not that. I did a sober month — all my girlfriends did it, we all did it together — and I just never went back to it,” Kelly stated.
Kelly’s People interview also saw her reveal that quitting smoking 25 years ago was immensely tough.
“Quitting smoking I really had to think about,” she began, adding:
“I was like: ‘Smoking leads to cancer and it will kill you.’ It was a thing I had to tell myself. And I was like, ‘It gives you wrinkles.’ And that was the thing that was really terrifying [laughs]. But you don’t want to die early, needlessly, over cigarettes.”
The health theme has stayed prominent with Kelly also recently being unveiled as the new face of vitamin and supplement brand Persona Nutrition – the ad showing Kelly holding a strip of the product in her bathroom did, however, see husband Mark Consuelos liken the ad to Kelly showing an ultrasound.
