Kelly Ripa is Little Miss Popular on her Instagram right now – and it’s worth a peek. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host’s Wednesday update was both shouting out upcoming Halloween and the year 2017 as she posted a throwback to her look three years ago – fans of the 50-year-old likely remember her leggy, gold-belted “Wonder Woman” outfit. Kelly’s snap today, quickly seeing her called “tiny,” showed off the killer waistline. It also brought in mad likes. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Kelly continues to make headlines for holding down the fort during co-host Ryan Seacrest’s recent COVID scare – Kelly was left solo as the “American Idol” host was reported to be suffering from a “minimal cough.”
The snap, showing Kelly with friends and posing in a group, sent fans a giant “Wonder Woman” vibe, with the former “All My Children” actress rocking star-spangled blue booty shorts, shiny gold belting details seen on her red top, plus the headwear and red boots made iconic by pop culture icon Wonder Woman.

“Forever #wcw @gretchenrandolph3 and @channy214 Halloween edition ????? honorable mention to @lipmickey.”
Comments have been pouring in – “You = Superhero forever,” one read, although many were quick to point out the mom of three being “mini” and “tiny.”
Ripa is fresh from seeing fans say she “needs a sandwich” after backstage “Live!” footage had fans concerned for her weight. Kelly did, however, show her massive eggs appetite just this week as she eyed up executive producer Michael Gelman’s breakfast backstage. More below.
Kelly and 45-year-old Ryan Seacrest are now back to normal, following the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” producer’s two-day stint at home as he awaited the results of a COVID test. Kelly was left hosting without him, with Ryan then thanking Kelly for working twice as hard while he was off.
“Thank you for covering,” he told her, adding: “Following strict protocol, got the negative test results for COVID. Makes you feel very good.”
Kelly replied saying she didn’t have any “doubts.” The star is, herself, fresh from addressing how everything’s changed on “Live!” – it’s testing negative or you aren’t allowed on set.
Kelly was in the news prior to Ryan’s scare, with October 2 seeing her turn 50. The Persona Nutrition spokesperson, who credits the tailor-made supplements for giving her a good night’s rest, peeked her $27 million NYC townhouse on her birthday as kids Lola, Michael, and Joaquin decked out her marbled hallway with flowers, candles, and gifts.
The birthday did not, however, see husband Mark Consuelos able to join in – he’s 3,000 miles away in Vancouver shooting CW series “Riverdale.” Mark did take to Instagram to mark Kelly’s birthday, though, calling his 1996-married wife “so sexy.”
