Kelly Ripa is playing with fire! The 50-year-old star is teetering between Santa’s naughty and nice list this holiday season and if she keeps it up, she might find coal in her stocking. The blonde bombshell made mouths water when she swung her hips back and forth while walking out to the “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” stage on Wednesday, only to be ditched by her co-star all together.
Ryan Seacrest has been missing in action all week with major television hunks taking a seat in his co-host chair.
Kelly Ripa didn’t seem to mind carrying the weight of a new co-host. In fact, she seemed cool, calm and collected while strutting her stuff on the “LIVE” stage. Turning the glossy floor into her own runway, the beloved morning host was met with a professional in the biz. CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper took time out of his busy political topics to chat about Christmas festivities and seasonal fashion trends.
While Kelly Ripa’s model-worthy sashay gave her one point on Santa’s naughty list, the star welcomed it by literally sporting the word “naughty.”
Flashing a fierce smile while showing off her blonde locks with rhinestone clips, Kelly Ripa showed she was playing right into Mr. Claus’s hands. Wearing a bright red hairpin that read “naughty,” the morning show host attempted to balance it out with a winter white “nice” one. Clearly, she was feeling spicy because her “naughty” clip was on the top.
Flaunting her fun clips in a behind-the-scenes video posted on the “LIVE” show’s Instagram account, Kelly Ripa revealed she’s not the only one in her family ready to make the naughty list.
Talking into the camera, she told fans that she also bought her 19-year-old daughter Lola Consuelos and all her friends the sparkling clip combo too. Kelly Ripa’s red and white hairpins weren’t the only festive thing she was sporting on Wednesday’s show. Dressing her jaw-dropping curves in a Christmas green top, the star flaunted her tiny waist by tucking the number into her long flowing skirt.
Rocking a pair of sky-high stilettos, Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper matched perfectly together, something Ryan Seacrest will no doubt be jealous of!
