Actress Kelly Ripa is one of the most successful TV hosts in the industry. She starred in several TV shows and joined ABC’s Live! with Regis Philbin in 2001. Since then she has been a part of the show with several co-stars. She got married to actor Mark Consuelos in 1996 and has three kids.
The TV host has been a part of ABC’s Live! for roughly 22 years now and she has made some good and bad memories. From appearing on the show without makeup to almost losing her pants on live TV, she has seen it all.
Kelly Ripa almost lost her pants on live TV
TV host Kelly Ripa, who hosted Live! without Ryan Seacrest, recently had an embarrassing moment on live TV. On Thursday, radio personality Deja Vu filled in for Ryan Seacrest. As the show began, she sat down on the chair and her pants “almost came down.” The TV host embarrassingly said,
“Welcome everyone – My pants just came down in the back”
She quickly pulled her pants up and held them until she was sure that they are in place. The TV host was visibly embarrassed but quickly moved on to host the show.

Ryan Seacrest did not appear on Live!‘s latest episode
The Thursday episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan saw only Ripa as Deja Vu filled in for Ryan Seacrest. Fans were wondering why Seacrest suddenly went missing from the show but it’s not hard to connect the dots. His absence comes just one day after Ripa announced that her podcast is in the works.
Ripa plans on staying on the talk show and will run her podcast on the side. She has been planning this for a very long time now and now it will come to fruition as Milojo Productions and SiriusXM will help her in setting up the podcast. The TV host is quite excited about the podcast mainly because it is “off camera.” Fans will get to see Kelly Ripa’s new, unfiltered side in the highly-anticipated podcast.

Kelly Ripa wants to retire
Ripa’s excitement about the podcast makes sense as, in the past, she has stated that she is too tired to be in a front of a camera all the time. She believes that she is too old for this job. The TV host said in January 2023,
“For 20 years I’ve been saying, ‘I can’t do it anymore. I can’t do it. I’m too old for this crap. I need to find another career. I need to get off camera.’ I’ve been saying that forever.”
She hates all the attention that she gets and wishes to have a life away from all the cameras. It seems like a podcast is exactly what she wants as no one can see her face.
