Kelly Ripa is deep in powder snow and chowing down on McRib. The 50-year-old talk show queen is, like every other New Yorker, snowed in as wintry weather engulfs the Big Apple, with the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host last night filming stunning, picture-perfect snow falling across NYC, plus how she was keeping herself busy. Kelly updated her Instagram on Wednesay evening with a cozy, fireside video showing off her McDonald’s treat, with stories also showing the snow. Check it out below.
Scroll for the food and the snow. Kelly, who is currently front-page news as 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest seemingly continues his absence and has proven a no-show on “Live!” all this week, posted from her $27 million NYC townhouse, peeping both her dinner and her stunning interiors.
The video showed a burning fire and wrapped Christmas gifts, but one was getting opened early – McDonald’s ain’t gonna sit there until December 25. Kelly was seen reaching into a red gift bag and pulling out a Mcdonald’s McRib sandwich.
Kelly, who tends to make headlines for her teeny-tiny waist, love of “microfoods” salads, and eating a super-healthy breakfast of oatmeal, almond butter, and chopped apple, was proving her human side – nobody can resist McD.
“Sometimes Christmas comes early. #mcrib #mcdonalds @abtvhd ♥️???(it’s once every ten years, calm down!),” Kelly told her 2.8 million followers.
The post came amid stories showing NYC’s snow-blanketed streets, even including one of Kelly in a snazzy metallic winter jacket and face mask, out enjoying the snow.
Kelly had filmed everything from streets with Hannukah celebration lights to some of NYC’s most iconic settings, including lit-up kids areas, plus steam escaping from under Manhattan streets.
If you aren’t up-to-date, Kelly has also been in the news for releasing her annual Christmas card, this time with a “SEE YA 2020” and photos showing 17-year-old son Joaquin and his 23-year-old brother Michael, plus 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace. The mom of three this year opted out of featuring on the card herself. Scroll for more photos.
Viewers to “Live!” have, this week, been left with plenty of questions. On Monday, fans noticed that “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest was absent, with his shoes getting filled by Bravo face Andy Cohen both Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday, meanwhile, brought CNN face Anderson Cooper, with today continuing this – nobody’s quite sure where Ryan is.
As to the McDonald’s, the comments section was, as ever, hilarious. “YOU’RE DEFINITELY BEING PAID FOR THIS AD AND PRETENDING, ?” leads the way.
No pain, no gain, though. Scroll for Kelly’s bedroom spandex squat session.
