Fans are demanding answers to “What’s wrong with Kelly” – the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host sparked both praise and concern today in a leggy black minidress, with 50-year-old Kelly Ripa proving she’s still got it after hitting the big FIVE-OH in October. On Friday, the syndicated talk show posted both a video and photo of Kelly, with co-host Ryan Seacrest joining the former “All My Children” actress, plus today’ guest, “Jersey Shore” star JWoww. The comments are getting interesting, though. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo and today’s video. Kelly, who was stylishly outfitted in a Ba&sh black dress flaunting her killer legs – of course, she was in stilettos – posed smiling and socially-distanced with reality face JWoww and 45-year-old Seacrest. A caption thanked today’s guest, but fans have other thoughts.
“Omg .. what has been wrong with Kelly the last couple of days .. she is over the top .. constant talking .. very hyper …
I watch sometimes because I love Ryan,” a fan wrote.
A user replying with an eye-roll emoji responded that it’s “always like that,” adding that they “don’t watch anymore, just follow on IG.”
Kelly hasn’t been able to catch a break of late. Not only was the blonde ditched by “American Idol” host Ryan as he both took a day “off” last month and awaited results of a COVID test, she’s been having to deal with weight-related comments on her Instagram.
Shortly before Halloween, Kelly posted a pantless “Wonder Woman” throwback from 2017. The leggy look, despite being three years old, sparked fears for the pint-sized star’s weight, with Kelly being told she needs to “eat something.”
Kelly, also told she “needs a sandwich” in a backstage video this fall, was called “too skinny,” with one fan writing: “Kelly you are adorable,” as the user added: “But I know one day, we will read about your battle with food.”
Kelly doesn’t have time for the haters. The star has been steadily shading the trolls with her tiny waist and gorgeous on-set dresses, also proving she’s got an appetite. If she isn’t eyeing up executive producer Michael Gelman’s hard-boiled eggs, she’s peeping under the desk where Freeze Pops are catching her eye. More after the video.
Kelly’s birthday, bringing a peep inside her $27 million NYC townhouse, also brought the star showered with gifts as a video showed her welcomed by a giant floral display with candles. Husband Mark Consuelos, some 3,000 miles away as he shoots CW “Riverdale” series, missed the live birthday, but he did call his 1996-married wife “sexy.”
Kelly, meanwhile, has been reflecting on her age. She told Parade: “Every decade you learn from the previous decade the mistakes you made and I feel so much better now than I did going into my 40s, where I really didn’t have a routine.”
