Kelly Ripa is showing the haters can shove it, period. The 50-year-old talk show queen is currently fronting media outlets for fears over behavior that’s seeing fans a touch concerned. The worries center both over Kelly being deemed agitated and at her alleged treatment of 45-year-old “Live!” co-host Ryan Seacrest. Kelly, already seeing her Instagram following drop by 100,000 amid both her behavioral concerns and October fears over her weight, was proving she’s doing just fine today. And she went leggy. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. Things kicked off last week as “Live!” viewers began commenting on Kelly.
“Omg .. what has been wrong with Kelly the last couple of days .. she is over the top .. constant talking ..” a fan had written.
The former “All My Children” actress, whose bubbly persona renders her adored, saw fans stating they felt “uncomfortable” watching her, with more recent feedback zero’ing in on her interactions with “American Idol” host Ryan – fans think she basically never lets him talk.
Keep Scrolling for the video. Kelly, whose chipper personality and infectious sense of humor tend to go down a treat, now sees users lashing out.
“Take a break Kelly. You’re trying too hard. Let Ryan have a turn. It’s his show too,” one comment read.
“Kelly is too obsessed with herself. Keep talking Ryan. We are listening,” another added, with the sentiment reflected, seemingly, by the masses. Kelly, who has starred on “Live!” since 2001, now faces a fanbase asking her to speak less and offer Ryan the floor more.
On Wednesday, syndicated talk show “Live!” updated its Instagram with the usual, pre-show footage. Kelly was looking 100% fabulous, seen flaunting her teeny-tiny waist and killer legs in a tight, slit, and leggy black dress with animal-print piping – of course, she was in her sky-high stilettos.
While fire emoji over Kelly’s look poured in, remarks continuing the recent concerns were quick to manifest.
“This used to be my favorite morning show to watch until recently. Kelly just keeps over talking Ryan constantly. Ryan never really gets to talk anymore. Kelly is just acting over the top,” one fan replied.
Kelly has yet to address the backlash. Likewise, Ryan, who has been seeing his fans call his appearance “sloppy” amid the drama. Over on Kelly’s Instagram, where 2.8 million fans subscribe, the star has now broken her silence, but she sure didn’t address the issue.
Earlier this week, Kelly updated with another shirtless and poolside “thirst trap” of 49-year-old husband Mark Consuelos. She also included a snuggly selfie of the man she married in 1996. The comments section then wound up a little NSFW as Kelly swooped in with the “daddy” moniker she uses for “Riverdale” star hubby Mark.
