Kelly Ripa literally just called herself hideous in off-air footage. The pint-sized “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host, fresh from both hosting the show alone and seeing her 2017 Halloween “Wonder Woman” outfit spark weight concerns, was today playing a few games as she admired herself in the mirror while wearing a tight skirt. A video shared to the “Live!” Instagram on Tuesday showed the 50-year-old seemingly bashing herself, although with Kelly’s sense of humor, that may have been the point. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video and the weight comments. Kelly managed to spark concern without even posting fresh photos, with her gold-adorned and pantless “Wonder Woman” look dating back three years.
Today’s video, showing Kelly after the airing, brought the usual #KellysFashionFinder as the former “All My Children” actress showcases her impossibly-stylish looks.
Wearing a pink Roland Mouret pencil skirt and vote-centric sweater, Kelly looked into a mirror held to her face, straight-up saying: “Hideous” several times over. But there was an ooh-ah moment… “Check this out” Kelly said, as the mirror lit up, seeming to suggest the reverse of “hideous.”
Keep scrolling for the video. As The Blast reported just before Halloween, Kelly sparked concern with her figure-flaunting throwback, seeing one fan call her “too skinny,” with another saying:
“Kelly you are adorable,” adding, “But I know one day, we will read about your battle with food.”
The worries come shortly after Kelly made headlines for seeing a fan say she “needs a sandwich” in backstage footage. Then again, when executive producer Michael Gelman’s hardboiled breakfast eggs are wasting smells, Kelly shows her appetite.
More after the video, including Kelly’s “Peter Pan” body!
Kelly’s headline-making over October spanned just about everything, ranging from her October 2 50th birthday and showcasing her $27 million NYC townhouse during it, to being ditched by Ryan Seacrest. The 45-year-old “American Idol” host fronted media outlets both for taking a day off and then another to await results of a COVID test – everyone was relieved to see the results revealed as negative, with Ryan himself confirming it feels “good.”
Kelly, meanwhile, has been pushing on at 50 and looking great – scroll for her “Peter Pan body” reveal after the video.
In 2019, Kelly spoke to The Cut, revealing her love of running through Central Park and Soul Cycle, to her incredibly complicated caffeine routine that includes a daily “bullet” coffee and her Starbucks.
“And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman. I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m,” she said.
