Kelly Ripa kept it brave and honest in her Monday morning Instagram share. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host posted a selfie from her bathroom as she continues to document the #rootwatch hashtag she’s started – 49-year-old Kelly has been making headlines for having zero choice but to let her gray roots take over, also fronting media outlets in April for letting the world know just how badly cutting your own bangs can go.
Keep scrolling for Kelly’s snap, plus the stunning 24-year wedding anniversary video that flashed the blonde’s killer bikini body.
Kelly’s selfie kept it simple. The star had snapped herself in her bathroom and post-shower, seen holding her phone up close as she showed her 2.7 million followers the increasing roots situation – #rootwatch “week seven” was logged by the daytime TV queen, with Kelly’s epic sense of humor manifesting as she dubbed the whole affair a “wtf” one. The snap contrasted Kelly’s admission of “spraying” her roots blonde.
“People are cutting their own bangs, they’re calling it a pandemic trend,” Kelly had said on her home-set airing of “Live!” back in March – Kelly seems to have set her own trend with this hashtag, though. Instagram is now packed with it.
“People don’t cut their hair out of boredom, they cut it because they are drunk and think they know how to cut hair,” Kelly continued adding:
“I know from where I speak. I cut my bangs before the Daytime Emmys around 22 years ago and I have never gotten over it. People tend to be on their ‘I cut my bangs’ glass of wine. They think, ‘You know what, I have always wanted bangs and now I am going to do it.'”
Kelly made major headlines on Saturday for marking a staggering 24 years of marriage to “Riverdale” star husband Mark Consuelos. The couple who eloped to Las Vegas in 1996 after meeting on the set of “All My Children” haven’t looked back since, also now watching kids Lola Grace, Michael, and Anthony slowly fly the nest. Marking Kelly’s 24 years with 48-year-old Mark on Saturday was a stunning mash-up video of the couple’s love story – views sit at over 800,000 as the footage included precious Kelly and Mark moments, plus the balletically-trained star’s sensational body in a tiny black bikini.
Kelly has been keeping it honest with regards to her quarantine wardrobe – breakfast with no pants might be the vibe as Kelly co-hosts from lock-down with Ryan Seacrest, but the star has revealed that she’s been stealing from 18-year-old daughter Lola’s closet.
“I’m now in my daughter’s clothes. It’s gone there,” Kelly said, also confirming that Instagram should not be expecting any TikTok content: “You have a better chance of doing a TikTok video with Lolz than we have of doing a TikTok video with Lola,” she added.
