Back in 2018, the 52-year-old TV personality, Kelly Ripa shared a post in which two pictures of different timelines were there featuring her and her husband Mark Consuelos, one from 1995 and the other from 2009. In the caption, she wrote, “Double #fbf 1995 vs. 2009 before i discovered that i needed a stylist and had a GOOD side” who seemingly made fun of her mid-’90s outfit and posture.
Her sweet memory soon turned bitter when fans started pointing out the extreme changes they noticed in both pictures. It caught major attention at the time with the former being called out for having plastic surgery.
It soon started going more severe with the Live! With Kelly and Ryan’s host clapping back at the trolls.
A user commented on her post,
“You may want to consider getting a new nose – I’m sure they could work miracles on that huge tip of yours honey baby.”
She chimed in and clarified that she had done no plastic surgery to her natural beauty.
“I’m gonna tell you right now. No nose job and no veneers. I wouldn’t be sleeping in a retainer every night if I had. You guys do know how to make a girl feel special.”
The original comment stating the same was deleted however the speculations regarding her plastic surgery remained in many minds.

Though the actress at that time straightaway denied doing any modifications to her natural appearance, she has done a few enhancements and even admitted to the same. She has been vocal about using botox to enhance her beauty which is more of a comfort for her.
In an interview with PEOPLE, she shared,
“For me, it was just more of my comfort level. If I worked off camera, I would not wash my hair with regularity or wear makeup but when I started to see things that I didn’t like, I thought, well, the next turtleneck is going to have two eye holes. I’m not saying you should let people bully you into cosmetic procedures. These are my choices for me.”
Not just that, she also used botox in her armpits to avoid sweating while working. She is conscious about her looks just like anyone else and has openly admitted that she takes Botox frequently.
