I don’t know for sure if the face you’re looking at above has been done dirty by bad Botox. But considering that it looks like Kelly Ripa’s teeth were called in last minute by her facial muscles to make a smile happen, I’m going to say: maybe? Kelly Ripa has admitted in the past that she loves Botox. Unfortunately, Kelly said on Live with Kelly yesterday that Botox once messed up her face six ways from Sunday.
Kelly’s co-host of the day Megyn Kelly admitted that her “good” side was her left side. That prompted Kelly to tell the story about the time Botox gave her two bad sides. Kelly’s “good” side is her right, but about a year ago, some bad Botox left her with two bad sides. “Hmmm, that’s funny, I wasn’t aware she had anything *but* bad sides” thought Michael Strahan.
Kelly says it took about six months before her face began transitioning back to normal. But during that time, people noticed. The only problem was that everyone was mistaking Kelly’s busted Botox job for bitchiness. Uh huh, sure Kelly, blame it on the Botox.
“There was about a six month period where people were like ‘What’s wrong with Kelly, she doesn’t smile anymore’ and I’m like ‘I AM smiling. I’m smiling.'”

Kelly is talking like Botox had her looking like Katya from the Drag Race All Stars 2 reunion show. I’m sure it wasn’t nearly as bad as she claimed it was. I don’t remember watching Live and thinking “When did they replace Kelly with a partially-melting Elf on a Shelf doll?” Plus, it’s not like she could ever be the most Botoxed face on television in the morning. Well, at least as long as E! keeps airing reruns of KUWTK between the hours of 10 and 12.
Here’s Kelly looking like Baseball Barbie while filming Live with Kelly in NYC this morning.
