Love her or hate her – you can always count on Kelly Ripa to tell it like it is. And when fans criticized her lockdown appearance, she had the best response.

We’ve definitely allowed appearances to slide.

What’s the point of sprucing up?

But for day-to-day? Standards have undeniably slipped.

If you’re looking after your mental health and wearing your mask, we think you can look however you like during this weird time.

Kelly Ripa has been coming under fire for her lockdown looks – and she’s not taken it lying down!

Born in New Jersey in 1970, she got her big break as Hayley Vaughan on classic ABC soap opera All My Children.

Since 2001, she’s been the anchorwoman of ABC’s Live! With Kelly & Ryan, alongside Ryan Seacrest.

In 2015, she made a cameo appearance in the Broad City episode “Coat Check” – playing a wild ‘n’ crazy version of herself.

Ripa married her hubby Mark Consuelos back in 1996. The pair have 3 kids together: Michael, aged twenty-two, Lola, aged eighteen, and Joaquin, aged sixteen.

And are no strangers to PDA. But Kelly’s latest went a little far for some people’s tastes.

“Page 101. Daddy,” she said proudly. “There’s daddy.”

But Ryan Seacrest joined in, joking, “Look at daddy.”

Calling your partner “Daddy” can make some people feel uncomfortable.

Fans commented on the post that they found Ripa’s choice of nickname creepy.

Simply ingenious!  

Since lockdown began. Ripa and Seacrest have been hosting their talk show online.

Fans were eager to point out they look a little different from usual.

Including that the two looked “shiny.”

“I don’t care,” she proclaimed.

“Certain things don’t matter any more and my appearance is one of those things that just don’t matter.”

“First of all, let me just say, to people commenting about our appearance, ‘How dare you and you’re lucky that we actually put clothes on. It’s harder than you think to roll out of bed and come to a TV show.'”

“I’m not going to do that because I keep telling myself, ‘You’re a professional and this is still a TV show and the days matter.'”

“So now I’m just in an 18-year-old self-tanner and workout clothes,” she quipped.
