Kelly Ripa is seemingly unbothered after her dress blew right up to expose a red thong. The 50-year-old “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host made major headlines yesterday for throwback photos that included a massive wardrobe malfunction, but the vibe was business as usual on Thursday as the former “All My Children” actress was back to work. Earlier today, the syndicated talk show posted a pre-show video featuring its star, and it looked like Kelly had fully recovered from her moment. Check it out below.
Scroll for the thong action. Kelly had actually bravely posted it to her own Instagram as she shouted out birthday wishes for “Dancing With the Stars” face Carrie Ann Iniba. Kelly had shared a series of snaps with “The Talk” co-host, including moments from their Hawaii travels, and this is where it got awkward.
The photo showed Kelly and Carrie Ann enjoying a traditional Hawaiian welcome, although eyes were likely on Kelly’s tie-dye dress blowing right up to reveal red and slightly-lowered undies.
The video shared today by “Live!” did alert fans to a pre-recorded status, something that’s unusual as Kelly and 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest generally prove filmed in a nearly-live moment while making their way onto the set.
The video showed Kelly strutting her stuff across the “Live” set and looking her usual flawless self, showcasing her teeny-tiny wast in a beige Palais blazer, tight skirt, and smart Ralph Lauren turtleneck, also rocking gold stiletto high heels. See the thong photo after the video!
Kelly doesn’t shy away, even in the most challenging moments. “Omg that underwear shot” now tops comments to the photos, with Kelly swooping into the comments section to reply: “The wind beneath my dress.” Also leaving a reply was Carrie Ann as she wrote:
“Love you so so much!!!! Thank YOU for taking time to celebrate with us on my birthday! And for the gorgeous balloons and flowers that are larger than my home state. Lol. You are my hero…and a hottie with a riding crop! ????❤️❤️”

Kelly made holiday headlines long before most celebrities did. Her tree was up by December 1, with a photo showing the decorations and peeping the star’s $27 million NYC townhouse. Kelly also shared her naughty McRib before Christmas, then making headlines for a New Year’s card featuring children Michael, Joaquin, and Lola. She was also finally able to spend the holidays with husband Mark Consuelos after he was away in Vancouver, Canada for nearly four months while shooting CW series “Riverdale.”
