Kelly Ripa has broken her silence following an off-air video showing the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host calling herself “hideous” while playing around with a mirror. Kelly, 50, and currently making headlines as fans fear for her weight, was filmed on Tuesday after her morning show’s airing in a light-hearted video that brought a slightly dark side. The former “All My Children” actress was throwing out the #KellysFashionFinder as she showed off her tight Roland Mouret skirt and heels – check out the video below, plus Kelly’s response.
Scroll for the video. Kelly had been filmed looking her usual stylish self and flaunting her teeny-tiny waist in a hot pink skirt from Kardashian-adored designer Mouret, also rocking Gianvito Rossi stilettos. The video showed the blonde seated with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest socially-distanced and just about visible, with Kelly jokingly playing around with a round face mirror that lit up.
“I’m HIDEOUS,” Kelly said several times as she placed the mirror to her face. Although, with the mirror lighting up as it approached Kelly, there was an “ah-ha!” moment that toned down any suggestion of low self-esteem.
Keep scrolling for the video. Late October brought Kelly’s fans fearing for her pint-sized frame after she posted a pantless, gold-adorned Halloween outfit channeling “Wonder Woman.” Despite the snap being a 2017 one, fans were out to let Kelly know they think she’s too skinny.
As one fan called Ripa “too skinny,” another wrote: “Kelly you are adorable,” adding, “But I know one day, we will read about your battle with food.”
The remarks come shortly after The Blast reported Kelly being told she “needs a sandwich” in a backstage video.
Kelly tends not to reply to the “Live!” Instagram via her own account, followed by 2.9 million, but the New York-based star likely keeps an eye on her show’s social media. A fan quickly commented, writing:
“Adorable outfit, but tell me more about that mirror…”
“Live” has now replied: “@krista.glenn.77,” the user’s handle, adding: “@michchampagne?”, an account claiming the mirror was “purchased at @alconeco. Ask them for lighted black hand held mirror. Battery powered,” they added. Kelly herself then broke her silence with election 2020 memes on her IG, plus a “STAY HYDRATED” joke pointing towards election night drinking games.
Headlines, also seeing Kelly dragging herself into husband Mark Consuelos’ penis drama recently, have been anything but dull for the star.
Kelly, who also made headlines for turning 50 on October 2, was also in the news in October as Ryan Seacrest ditched her for two days straight, leaving it more “Live! With Kelly” than anything else. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” producer took one day off, but the second sparked concern as it was revealed he was awaiting a COVID results test following reports he was suffering from a “minimal cough.”
Ryan, getting the all-clear, thanked Kelly for holding down the fort, admitting it felt “good” to see the result come back negative.
