Kelly Ripa is showing the haters they can shove it. The 50-year-old talk show queen is currently front-page news as concerns over her “hyper” and “extreme” behavior turn uglier, with today seeing the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host deemed “obnoxious” by multiple users. Kelly, who has remained silent over both this and concerns over her weight, is, however, keeping busy on Instagram. On Monday, as fans deemed the blonde self-centered, Kelly posted more of the “thirst trap” photos that 19-year-old daughter Lola is “disgusted” by. Check it out below.
Scroll for the poolside action. The drama kicked off last week as viewers commenting on the “Live!” Instagram offered their feedback.
“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 had written. The former “All My Children” actress then sparked a flurry of comments, including suggestions she’s gotten “extreme.” And it didn’t stop there, not by a mile.
Viewers to Monday’s pre-show video were quick to keep slamming Kelly.
“I have watched Kelly since all my children but lately I am having a hard time watching her! She is borderline obnoxious. I had to flip channels this morning,” one fan wrote – “Agree” was a reply, with a further fan stating: “Yeah she is! Idk what’s going on with her!”
Coupled with last week’s remarks seeing a fan saying they feel “uncomfortable” by Kelly’s behavior, the star has now broken her silence.
Kelly has now broken her silence. No mention of the show she’s starred on since 2001, nor of “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, but the mom of three did update today with a shout-out to someone fans know all too well.
Kelly’s Monday update was dedicated to 49-year-old husband Mark Consuelos. Kelly opened with a snap of the “Riverdale” actor chilling in pinkish swim trunks poolside and with a stunning view of both the palms and his abs. A quick selfie in a swipe-right showed the 1996-married couple snuggling for a selfie.
Kelly took to her caption, addressing her 2.8 million followers.
“Because they’re all throwbacks now, i give you my forever #mcm MC @instasuelos Take us away baby ♥️???,” she captioned the shot.
Quick to reply with “Let’s go there now” and heart emoji was Mark.
“FOREVERDADDY” also came in from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna. Kelly frequently refers to hubby Mark as “Daddy,” but as daughter Lola divulged this year as the family fronted People magazine, she’s totally grossed out by the Insta-flirting.
