Kelly Ripa clearly hasn’t packed on a single Thanksgiving pound. The 50-year-old talk show queen made headlines last week for live-baking her delicious biscuits recipe, with “Live!” footage on Monday suggesting that Kelly is definitely blessed from above – calories just don’t seem to stick to the star’s waistline. Earlier today, “Live!” uploaded a pre-airing gear-up showing Kelly with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest, and it looked like Kelly had picked another winner look. Leather, possibly vegan, was the vibe. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. Kelly, who made December 2019 headlines for rocking a sky-blue vegan pleated leather skirt, was back to shouting out the flattering wardrobe piece, with on-set footage showing the former “All My Children” actress in a black version. The teeny-tiny waist was on show as Kelly paired her skirt with sky-high stilettos and a glittery dark blouse, with the mom of three seen babbling away with “American Idol” host Ryan.
Comments don’t take long on the “Live!” Instagram, and today sent Kelly the thumbs-up.
If you aren’t up-to-date, it’s been mega-busy on “Live!” Last week brought an unusual episode as the set turned into a makeshift kitchen, with Kelly gathering up her family for a giant biscuits bake – both savory cheese and regular were shared as Kelly’s children Michael, Joaquin, and Lola joined in via video chat alongside 49-year-old husband Mark Consuelos.
Kelly didn’t get to spend Thanksgiving with her 1996-married husband, though. He’s some 3,000 miles away, shooting CW series “Riverdale.” See more photos after the video!
Kelly, who has been counting down the days until hunky husband Mark returns, seemed to make do with the best possible alternative to having him home – when FaceTime is available, you use it. Posting throwbacks and FaceTime moments also including Mark’s parents, Kelly told her 2.8 million Instagram followers how it went down.
“#tbt thanksgiving is not like last year, but we’re still grateful that our parents are getting the hang of FaceTime. Sort of. ?????????,” she wrote. The mom of three even snuck in a pre-Thanksgiving workout – scroll for the bedroom squat action.
Shortly before Thanksgiving, Kelly found herself front-page news for delivering both a spandex-clad bedroom workout and a reminder that her $27 million NYC townhouse is one stylish affair. The “Hope & Faith” alum’s workout video went viral the minute it was posted, with fans seeing how this 50-year-old keeps in shape.
Kelly, clearly referencing COVID, joked that her bedroom is now her “gym,” writing: “ALL IN. FULL OUT! Welcome to the bedroom/gym.” She told fans: “I live here now in the gym/bedroom.”
