Kelly Ripa remains unbothered by body shamers and she’s shoving her thin frame right in their faces. The newly-turned 50-year-old star blinded her haters when she took the stage to host Thursday’s episode of “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan.” The morning show personality is known for her fashion but she’s been amping it up and accentuating her curves ever since her weight became a hot topic last week.
In a clip taken when the cameras turned off, Kelly Ripa flaunted her thin waist with a smile.
Dressing her curves in a free-flowing Maje dress, the star shined bright like a diamond for the important episode which marked her 30th anniversary with the Walt Disney company. Looking like a walking disco ball, Kelly Ripa highlighted her itty bitty waist by using a large black belt to cinch the look altogether.
The long-sleeved frock hit just above her ankles, covering her legs that drew weight concerns over her noticeable thigh gap last week.

Appearing to laugh off the body shamers, Kelly Ripa was heard joking with staff off-camera about potentially being gifted a car. In the hilarious clip, she declares her choice would be a minivan with spinners. “Tune in now as we celebrate Kelly’s 30th Anniversary with the Walt @Disney Company! #KellysFashionFinder,” the company captioned the video.
Her fans immediately went wild over Kelly Ripa’s celebration look and began dropping her adoring comments over the dress, changing their tune from just days ago.
“Congratulations! Beautiful dress on a beautiful Kelly! ?,” one person wrote. “Happy 30th Anniversary! LOVE THAT DRESS!!!” added another. “That dress is everything on you!” shared a third. Just one week ago, body shamers came for Kelly Ripa after she posted a leggy TBT.
Many viewers felt the star looked “too skinny” in her comic book Halloween garb. Kelly Ripa’s followers immediately began addressing her body with someone instructing the star to “eat something” in the comments. She’s now telling them to eat it.
Her body isn’t the only thing making headlines these days. Kelly Ripa’s husband of two decades Mark Consuelos collected attention after the “LIVE” host revealed he’s packing heat where it counts. Dropping several TBT looks from her family’s Halloween past, fans were quick to notice Mark’s noticeably large package in one of the shots.
When he commented selling himself short, Kelly Ripa spoke up and to fans’ delight, she confirmed the size of his manhood is just what it appears to be.
