The 52-year-old actress, Kelly Ripa in Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan was spotted quite flustered when she was discussing virtual contact with her co-host, Ryan Seacrest. She noted that people often end up sharing their personal details as well while being in a work environment accidentally.

She shared,

“What happens is, as everyone’s reading their group email, it pops up that Bob has a colonoscopy at 2.”

Her co-host was quite surprised and joked about a fictional character, Bob as he stated, “Bob of Disney sharing his calendar? The chairman of the company?”

She further added that she is not that involved in the company’s affairs to know their colonoscopies appointment however she does know Gelman’s. She added that the reason behind her being aware of his personal appointment is because “he tells us how much weight he lost after his ‘fast’.”

She taunted the producer by stating, “You know, as if we want to know these things.” Looking directly into the camera, she stated, “But we have to hear it, damn it, like it or not, and now you do too!”

This is not the first time that the host-producer moments are spotted in the show. They have continued to shade each other however in a light way. While they continue to bicker, Seacrest has announced his departure from the show.

“Last year we spoke, and I made the decision to make this my last season as cohost.”

He joined the Live! Show in 2017 replacing Michael Strahan who was initially co-hosting with the actress. The American Idol host initially signed up for three years but continued to stay here as he loved working there.
