Kelly Ripa Flaunts Belly Dancer Body Amid Anorexia Fears

By Rebecca Cukier

"One day, we will read about your battle with food" – comments zero'ing on Kelly Ripa's weight this week turned intense when she posted a 2017 Halloween throwback of her "Wonder Woman" outfit. The "Live! With Kelly and Ryan" host had fans worried for her pint-sized frame as three-year-old photos shouted out Halloween, but the 50-year-old isn't letting the remarks get to her. Friday brought fresh stories for Kelly's 2.9 Instagram followers, including another throwback of her stunning and skimpy belly dancer look. Check it out below.

Scroll for the belly dancer action. Kelly, this year revealing she's alcohol-free and that lunch is a "big salad of microgreens," kicked off the worries as she shouted out the booted, pantless, and gold-adorned "Wonder Woman" outfit she wore three years ago.

"You look too skinny. Eat something," one fan had replied, with another saying the former "All My Children" actress is "adorable," before fearing they'd one day "read" about her eating disorder battle. Haters can hate, though, as Kelly just proved.

Keep Scrolling For Her 'Microgreens' Salad Lunch

Kelly quickly uploaded stories on Friday showing her in a pink and burgundy belly dancer two-piece as she shouted out 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest, with a twinning snap definitely bringing out both the Halloween spirit and the blonde's teeny tiny waist.

Anyone viewing "Live!" ahead of the weekend also saw the Persona Nutrition spokesperson dressed up as both Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin from hit Netflix series "Tiger King." The duo also channeled "Schitt's Creek" and Disney+ "Star Wars" for a major showdown.

Her 'Microgreens' Salads

In March, Harper's Bazaar asked Kelly to keep a full food diary – which she did. Joking that avocado on toast was a trend forming the "foundation of my diet," Kelly revealed that she had it "with just about every meal," even frying an egg and adding it on top.

The talk show queen then detailed that lunch is usually a "big salad of microgreens," including toasted nuts and her beloved avocado – the "toast kick of 2015 to 2017" got the thumbs-up from Ripa. Scroll for her wild morning coffee deal.

Caffeine Routine Is Insane


Kelly, regularly seen holding her morning Starbucks on-set – she told The Cut it's a latte from the coffee giant in 2019 – has even detailed the extremely meticulous caffeine routine she kicks the day off with.

"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 said, admitting Seacrest's girlfriend had gotten her "hooked."

"I have a Starbucks latte when I get to Live. Then I will have a half a coffee after the show wraps. I have a great energy level," Kelly added.
