Kelly Ripa is showing the haters they can shove it. The “Live!” talk show queen has been stuffing her tiny waist with whipped cream in her morning coffee amid concerns over her weight – Kelly, 50, kicked off the worries with her pantless “Wonder Woman” Halloween costume, with fans deeming the blonde too thin despite the snap being a 2017 one. Kelly, who referred to her her body as a “Peter Pan” one last year, has been showing “Live!” viewers how she fuels it. Apparently, given fans comments, via a “sugar high.” Check it out below.
Scroll for all the photos. Kelly, in 2020 revealing she’s alcohol-free and eats “microfoods” super-salads for lunch, had fans fearing for her pint-sized frame as Halloween 2020 approached, with Kelly’s stunningly-slim frame getting showcased on her Instagram in a gold-adorned Wonder Woman look.
“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 informed that she looks “too skinny” and was begged to “eat something.” If whipped cream is food, it got eaten today.
On Tuesday, “Live!” updated its Instagram with the usual on-set footage showing Kelly joined by 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. Kelly, joking about loneliness and saying it’s “amazing” as she chatted with “American Idol” host Ryan, wasn’t even seen consuming her coffee in the video. But fans had clearly spotted something while Kelly was on-air.
“??Kelly I think you have way too much whip cream you are a sugar high girl,” one user wrote.
“Kelly is on a SUGAR High!!! Omg? Lol,” another added.

Kelly, whose former ballerina frame remains petite as they come, has been opening up on her diet. The former “All My Children” actress also fronts tailored vitamin brand Persona Nutrition, crediting them for her good sleep. This year keeping a food diary for Harper’s Bazaar and revealing her love of avocado, Kelly dished on the trend that’s been keeping her fueled for a while.
Kelly told the magazine: “The avocado toast kick of 2015 to 2017 was two years where avocado toast was pretty much the foundation of my diet.”
“And I had it with just about every meal. Sometimes, I would fry an egg and add that on top. Sometimes, a piece of cheese would accompany the avocado toast. But the avocado toast was a real staple of my diet.”
The egg part makes sense, with October seeing Kelly apparently jealous of producer Michael Gelman’s backstage hard-boiled eggs.
