Kelly Ripa is showing the haters they can hate, period. The 50-year-old talk show queen has likely had her fill of fans tearing apart her every move – first came concerns over the “Live!” host’s weight, with last week bringing a wave of worries as fans deemed her behavior “extreme,” also saying they were left “uncomfortable.” Monday was back to business for Kelly and 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. Kelly picked a stunning dress with sheer fabrics, and you can check it all out below.
Scroll for the today’s video. It comes as the comments racked up late last week – Kelly’s pepped-up energy was deemed too much as “Jersey Shore” star JWoww was guest.
“Omg .. what has been wrong with Kelly the last couple of days .. she is over the top .. constant talking .. very hyper …,” one fan had replied.
“I’ve noticed a change in her behavior, I don’t like how she treats Ryan,” another had said, with a previous video seeing Kelly’s behavior called “extreme” and leaving a fan feeling “uncomfortable.”
Keep scrolling for the video. “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” nearly always posts pre-show footage of its famous co-hosts making their way onto the set and chatting before the cameras roll. Today saw Kelly stunning in high-heeled green stilettos to match a wrap-effect and calf-length dress.
Kelly, who will go leggy, showed off her killer pins via sheer fabrics on the plaid dress’ lower half, with the “All My Children” alum wearing her glasses, too. The chat with “American Idol” host Ryan also proved pretty interesting.
The video, below, showed Kelly and Ryan seated and socially-distanced – Kelly, who has revealed “all these” new restrictions, was last month ditched by Ryan as he awaited the results of a COVID test.
Talk got festive. Ryan said his Christmas tree was “going up early.”
Kelly fully agreed: “I think we’ve all agreed to where trees are up early,” she replied, then likely referencing the global pandemic with a giant and exhausted: “I mean honestly, because it’s… enough already. We’ve all had enough…Enough is enough.”
More after the video.
Kelly, who made major headlines on October 2 for ringing in her 50th birthday and peeking her $27 million NYC townhouse in the process, has been opening up on her plans – seemingly, ones that may see her leave the syndicated talk show she’s starred on since 2011.
Speaking to Parade, Kelly revealed media plans that wouldn’t see her on camera, saying:
“I’ve been writing a lot, so my goal ultimately would be to eventually get off camera and start working behind the camera more in that creative aspect because I really do enjoy the writing process so much.”
