Kelly Ripa is refusing to let weight concerns stop her from living her life. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host is currently in the news as fans worry for the 50-year-old’s pint-sized frame – 2017 throwback snaps of Kelly dressed as Wonder Woman in a gold, pantless getup sparked concerns she’s way too skinny this week, with the former “All My Children” actress staying silent amid fears. Kelly has since been photographed on her first public outing, and she was making a statement in skinny drainpipe jeans. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos that were actually seeing the former “All My Children” actress sending a giant F-YOU to President Donald Trump – Kelly was wearing a sweatshirt with “FAUCI” written across it as she endorsed world expert immunologist and coronavirus know-all, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The photos showed Kelly looking casual and super-stylish. The blonde, dwarfing her 5’2” frame with a giant umbrella amid drizzle, wore tight black drainpipe jeans, her white sweatshirt, plus matching sneakers while carrying a black coat in one arm.

“Kelly you are adorable,” one fan had written, “But I know one day, we will read about your battle with food.” Kelly had also been told that she looks “too skinny” and was begged to “eat something.”

Back in March, Kelly opened up to Harper’s Bazaar about her clean eating lifestyle, telling the magazine that her breakfast consists of mixed almond butter with cinnamon and sliced apples: “I eat that like a porridge, if you will,” she said.
“The avocado toast kick of 2015 to 2017 was two years where avocado toast was pretty much the foundation of my diet,” she continued. “And I had it with just about every meal.”
Kelly is now the celebrity spokesperson for tailored supplements brand Persona Nutrition. More below.
Kelly made headlines earlier this month for seeming pretty jealous of “Live!” executive producer Michael Gelman’s breakfast setup. While walking through backstage corridors with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest, the star caught the smell of Gelman’s hard-boiled eggs and seemed envious. Kelly herself is often seen carrying her morning Starbucks while heading onto the set – in fact,she has an entire morning coffee routine.
“I make a “Bullet Coffee” at home in the morning — it’s coffee, two shots of espresso and a tablespoon of ghee and then a packet of collagen powder,” she told The Cut last year, also admitting her on-set Starbucks is a latte.
