Kelly Ripa mocks Live producer as she jumps from seat to borrow prop from crew member and recreates scene on show

KELLY Ripa has mocked a show producer as she left her seat to borrow a prop to recreate a scene during the show.

The funny moment occurred while Kelly and co-host Ryan Seacrest discussed Zoom meetings and virtual gatherings during Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Ryan, 48, begged his co-host to “please don’t bring me back to those days,” as the pair reminisced about running the show during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kelly, 52, opened up about the “feedback” issues the morning talk show suffered as executive producer Michael Gelman attempted to run the broadcast over Zoom.

The Live host revealed that she would “troll him endlessly” because of his directional shortcomings due to the technological limits of producing a show via video chat.

She then explained: “He would hold up a cue card when he wanted us to move along.”

Standing from her seat, she continued: “But he would uhh…which camera’s mine?”

Ryan quickly offered her to “take three,” as he pointed to a camera positioned in front of the stage.

She then borrows a cue card from a crew member as the On Air with Ryan Seacrest host announced: “This is going to be nostalgic.”

Kelly then approached camera number three as she explained to the audience and viewers at home: “This is Gelman holding up the cue card, telling me to move along.”

She then placed the card close to the camera lens, covering the majority of the frame and leaving it completely out of focus.

As the studio audience laughed, Kelly confessed: “I would say, ‘I can’t see that dear.’”


During the episode, Kelly threw another jab at the show producer for talking about his colonoscopy.

Kelly revealed that one of the things employees were noticing with virtual contact was that they were accidentally sharing more personal information 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, 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!”


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.

Kelly and Mark have been married for nearly 30 years, but the 52-year-old admitted on Tuesday’s show her husband was keeping a secret from her.

“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 looked shocked as 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 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.”
