Kelly Ripa has offered a little insight into why bath time doesn’t always prove well-received in her household. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host – who herself reached “wtf level” in her own bathroom earlier this year as she documented her #rootswatch – updated her stories over the weekend. Kelly’s 2.8 million followers saw her wet-haired. Likewise soaked was the individual not impressed by bathing – yes, it was Kelly’s dog Chewie.
“Dog Days of Quarantine” are upon us has already seen this pet in the news for bath reasons. Scroll for the shot, plus Kelly’s Caribbean lock-down.
Kelly’s photo saw her with the dog who turned “91 years young” back in mid-May. The 49-year-old talk show queen was seen fresh-faced and makeup-free as she held up a soaked Chewie from her Caribbean quarantine – the sideways glance from Kelly confirmed the humor, with something about Chewie’s expression sending out unimpressed vibes. Kelly, who appeared in a dark top added text, writing: “Chewie does NOT enjoy bath time.” The former “All My Children” actress’ pooch last got his IG moment on April 1.
Kelly, who is currently in lock-down with 48-year-old “Riverdale” star husband Mark Consuelos, plus the couple’s three kids, has been opening up on lock-down life via her show – it’s a virtual affair with co-host Ryan Seacrest.
“We’ve established a chore wheel where everybody has a chore of the week,” she told parenting expert Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore, last week: “Somebody’s vacuuming, somebody does the dishes, somebody does the laundry, somebody cleans the toilet throughout the week.” More below.
Kelly has made headlines over COVID-19 for taking a while to disclose that she’s social distancing in the Caribbean. The blonde explained that she had no choice: “We had planned a trip for our family, and it was supposed to be our entire family of course. And we arrive and three days later, the entire world changed, really,” she stated, adding:
“I mean, everything shut down; the government shut down; our country shut down. I hate to use the word stuck, but we were. We decided to stay where we were.” Scroll for stunning 19-year-old daughter Lola.
The Ripa/Consuelos family now sees nearly everyone as an adult. 23-year-old son Michael is joined by 17-year-old brother Joaquin. Sandwiched between the boys is NYU student daughter Lola Grace Consuelos. She turned 19 this month, with Kelly honoring her daughter’s birthday on IG. “I’m so proud of her,” Kelly said, adding: “I’ve blinked and my daughter is 19 years old.”
Lola, who is super-shy on Instagram has, however, shown that she can sing. No, really. She can. She also wanted to spend her 19th birthday asleep, according to mom Kelly.
