LIVE’s Kelly Ripa has thrown jabs at the show producer for talking about his colonoscopy.
Live’s Kelly Ripa has called out the show’s producer for sharing sensitive informationABCDuring a discussion about sharing appointments and private info with other employees, Kelly threw a playful jabABC
One of the things, Kelly said of the phenomenon, that employees were noticing with virtual contact was that they were ending up sharing more by way of work portals.
That included life and home appointments as well as doctor’s appointments that would end up being shared inadvertently.
Kelly explained: “What happens is, as everyone’s reading their group email, it pops up that Bob has a colonoscopy at 2.”
“You mean Bob of Disney?” Ryan asked. “Bob of Disney sharing his calendar? The chairman of the company?”
“No, not that Bob,” Kelly said, laughing.
The pair joked about the fictional Bob they were talking about.
“I’m not that deeply involved at the company that I know everyone’s colonoscopies,” Kelly said pointedly.
She continued: “I only know when Gelman’s is coming up because he tells us how much weight he lost after his ‘fast’,” she joked.
The camera panned to producer Michael Gelman, who smiled and shook his head.
“You know, as if we want to know these things,” said Kelly.
She then looked straight at the camera and pointed. “But we have to hear it, damn it, like it or not, and now you do too!”
‘LIVING A LIE’
Meanwhile, Kelly shared a secret that threatened to ruin her marriage.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan host revealed she caught her longtime husband Mark Consuelos in a lie.
“I just found out something,” she slowly explained to co-host Ryan Seacrest. “You know how you’re married to someone for like, 30 years, and you think you might know them? Wrong again.”
A concerned Ryan asked: “You pulled back the curtain on something?”
After a pause, and a deep breath, Kelly confessed: “Mark takes frigid cold showers in the morning.”
As several members of the audience gasped out loud, Kelly continued: “I feel like he’s been living a lie.”
Ryan, 48, looked shocked. He struggled to ask his partner if she knew this.
“I don’t know who he is.” Kelly opined. “Like, will I find another wife? Is there a separate family? Did he forget that I’m the warm water wife?”
But the admissions weren’t over yet.
Kelly continued: “And then he said to me, ‘I always take a cold shower in the mornings, you know that.’”
The host threatened that had she might not have even married him had she known his cold-blooded secret.
“There’s something wrong with that,” she lamented. “It’s sneaky, it’s weird.
“He’s trying to convince me he’s always done that. It’s like being married to a stranger now.”
But Mark’s not the only one with a guilty conscience.
Kelly recently planted a big kiss on Ryan, before the American Idol host referred to himself, Kelly and Mark as a throuple.
Mark, 51, was a guest on Friday’s show, after Ryan announced that he was leaving Live one day prior.
After they talked about Mark’s new rules for the show and how excited he is to take over, the hosts played a game.
When they returned back from another commercial break, Ryan, Kelly, and Mark were all sitting on a couch for The Love Inbox.
“Welcome back to our Love Inbox,” Kelly said.
“What a throuple!”
“It is a nice throuple,” Mark said.
“Yeah,” Ryan agreed and laughed. “It’s a Love Throuple!”
As the show ended, Mark leaned over to kiss his wife and Ryan leaned over to try to get a kiss from them as well.
Kelly leaned over her husband and kissed her “work husband” on the cheek.
After she sat back, Mark kissed Ryan on the cheek as well and he looked satisfied and mouthed “Wow.”
Kelly recently opened up about her ever-changing romance with her hubby, especially after the announcement he will soon be sitting next to her full time.
After giving her spouse a shout-out on social media, she admitting that co-hosting together on the show does impact a certain aspect of their marriage.
“And Mark, welcome home, or to the contractual obligation phase of our relationship.”
In 2022, Live! executives began pursuing Mark to come on board as the new host because Ryan had been “spread too thin.”
Mark has filled in for Ryan multiple times on the show – including for a week in December.
Ryan recently announced he’s leaving Live! after six years.
An insider close to the situation exclusively told The U.S. Sun his absences on the daytime talk show gave Mark more opportunities to shine on the program.
