Kelly Ripa Got Teary While Admitting That She’s Not Talking To Two Of Her Kids, Even Though They’re Self-Isolating Together
Quarantine has hit Kelly Ripa hard. Many talk show hosts are recording from home including the hour of morning torture known as Live with Yappy and Smuggy (aka Live with Kelly and Ryan). Kelly is isolating with her husband, Mark Consuelos, and their three children. Their children are brave for doing that, because you can only walk in on Kelly and Mark doing it so many times before your eyeballs decide to divorce you. But the kids are there, and things are going so well that she’s not talking to two of them! “Lucky!” said the other kid.
Kelly and Mark have three kids, Lola, 18, Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 17. And Kelly told Ryan Seacrest that she’s not talking to two of them. Which two, she wouldn’t say. But she said that quarantine has been hard for her because she really wants to hug her children but they refuse because of coronavirus. It’s been hard on her and she used her show as a therapist’s couch to spill it all. via People:
“I’m not going to lie, okay? I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’m currently not speaking to two of my three kids. I’m not talking to two of them. Just because, we’re all in the same boat together, right?… I haven’t gotten to hug my parents. I want to hug my parents. I miss hugging my parents. And my kids, like, won’t hug me. And I’m like, “Guys, we’ve all been in lockdown together. We’re fine. You can give me a hug. It’s fine.”… Anyway, I’m sorry. I don’t know why I’m crying. Maybe I’m just going to get my period, who knows… Sorry, sorry. Sometimes we forget that we’re on. Did I shout that, or did my inner monologue come out? Sorry, didn’t mean to do that.”
Kelly also talked about how her father postponed knee surgery because of corona, and her son Michael was supposed to graduate from college this month. Although Michael himself is pretty chill about it.
“I feel so bad for my son, Michael, who was supposed to graduate in a couple of weeks. And I really feel bad for my dad who delayed having knee surgery that he can’t obviously have now for so many myriad reasons. He was so looking forward to, you know, watching his grandson graduate from college… It was such a big talking point in our house. Again, these are small problems considering that so many people are losing their loved ones and [are] very, very sick. But … it is what it is, you know what I mean? Michael, by the way, is not bothered at all.”
Famous people are starting to fucking lose it, eh? Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard are hanging on by a thread, Ellen Degeneres is worried about getting shanked in the shower, and now Kelly Ripa is breaking down on live TV over her kids. I wonder how long until a Kardashian/Jenner loses her mind. I know, they’d have to have a mind in the first place to lose it.
