Kelly Ripa has been on television for three decades, and a lot can change to a person in thirty years. For example, they could one day find themselves sitting across a table from what appears to be a spray-tanned robot in TV host autopilot mode. Or maybe they post a throwback picture on Instagram, and people in the comments ask if it’s supposed to be a Spot The Difference game. Kelly Ripa recently squared off with face-shamers on social media, and schooled them on what hasn’t changed.
On Friday, Kelly posted this picture of herself and her husband of 22 years, Mark Consuelos:
According to People, it didn’t take long before several people pointed out that Kelly’s current nose and teeth situation doesn’t match the original. One commenter even suggested she might “want to consider” getting a new nose, and that a doctor could “work miracles” on the tip. Kelly wasn’t impressed with the discussion about her nose and teeth and slapped the haters in her comments.
“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.”
Mark then chimed in, saying: “I can attest…same nose. No veneers,” before adding, “and fierce retainer.” Kelly responded: “Thanks honey, I’ll wear it for you tonight.”
Kelly has openly admitted to loving Botox, so she’s not exactly shy when it comes to transparency about her face work. And according to her, that’s the nose she was birthed with, and teeth courtesy of a stinky piece of plastic attached to a metal wire. Case closed! Well, until the next time she posts a throwback, and another person comes out of the woodwork with a magnifying glass.
