Kelly Ripa is hitting back at body shamers after her weight made headlines over the past several weeks. The 50-year-old television personality unapologetically showed off her slender frame, even revealing her massive thigh gap, when she lifted her swinging dress on Monday’s “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” episode.
In a behind-the-scenes video, shared on the morning show’s official Instagram page, Kelly Ripa is seen flaunting her slender frame in a long flowing dress and she wasted no time hiking it up.
In the backstage clip, the “LIVE” host is sporting a black Isabel Marant dress with a floral pattern. The form-fitting grab hugged at Kelly Ripa’s hips and it was hard not to notice her itty bitty waist.
Despite the long-sleeved dress being pretty modest for the morning show star, she amped up the sex appeal with a close wardrobe malfunction. Once she reached the stage, Kelly Ripa gave viewers an eyeful of her upper thighs.

Speaking to her co-star Ryan Seacrest backstage, Kelly Ripa can be heard joking about never getting sick. Once the stage lights hit them, the star turned on her charm. Smiling big in the free-flowing dress, Kelly Ripa strutted her stuff and grabbed the fitted garb just below her waist.
That’s when she did the unthinkable. Twisting and lifting the dress sky-high, the “LIVE” host gave everyone more than they bargained for when she nearly flashed her panties to the audience at home.
Fans came close to seeing everything, but Kelly Ripa stopped right at the top of her legs with her noticeably large thigh gap on full display. “We’re live now! #KellysFashionFinder: Isabel Marant dress,” the captioned of the backstage video read.
Fans immediately swarmed the clip with comments on Kelly Ripa’s legs and, unlike last week, no one took issue with her weight. “Nice legs Kelly!” one person commented on the video. “Whoop there it is! That dress is gorgeous on you Kelly!” added another.
“I’m liking a fierce #KellyRipa doing a model walk to start the week,” shared a third. “Kelly, always flawless,” posted someone else. As The Blast reported, Kelly Ripa’s tiny frame caught some unwanted attention last month after she posted a revealing TBT in a leggy Wonder Woman costume from 2017.
Body shamers swarmed her comments with some calling her “too skinny” and instructing her to “eat something.” Kelly Ripa isn’t giving the haters the time of day though, and she’s continuing to flaunt what she’s got.
