Kelly Ripa Was Rudely Advised To Try A Diet By A Viewer On The Set Of Soap Opera 'All My Children'

Date February 6, 2020

What does Kelly Ripa do to be trim all the time? The TV personality doesn't consider herself as "va-va-voom woman" but rather "Peter Pan" — yet she put a lot of effort into staying in good shape. Kelly Ripa is fond of:

  • AKT, cardio-based dance classes;
  • SoulCycle;
  • and running in Central Park.

"The more you exercise, the healthier it is," she once said. Isn't that right?

Kelly Ripa's diet

Before landing on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly Ripa starred in a soap opera, All My Children. Back then, she got extra weight due to her pregnancy, and she once received a ruthless letter from one of the show's fans, saying: "Eat a carrot, you fat bastard." Was it an indirect request for the diet?

She might have been hurt, but she dealt with the situation in the best way. The TV star put the note in the frame and hang it on in her dressing room. She explained then:

I feel like as long as you take ownership over your own flaws, it doesn't hurt if someone else points them out.

It seems like it did not influence Kelly Ripa's self-acceptance and self-love. Working hard for her own success while managing family life with Mark Consuelos and their three kids, she has focused on her well-being and self-respect. She also developed a positive mindset thanks to her own parents.

What my family, Mark, and the kids do for me is slow me down and make me see that at the end of the day, none of the other stuff matters. It's about the people who are in the room with me. So when you ask what I want, the answer for me is really simple: to live the best life I possibly can.

Kelly Ripa on her body image

Some people can eat everything in the fridge without the following workout and remain slim, but Kelly Ripa isn't one of them. She perfectly knows she has to work hard to be healthy and toned.

The 49-year-old developed thick skin and revealed that dealing with body-shaming critics could be a fun thing to do. Talking to Instyle, Ripa claimed:

I mean, people insult me all the time. I actually don't take it personally. My whole thing, I think it's funny when people insult me, and they can't spell. So that's the only time you'll see me weighing in.

We have no single idea of how Kelly Ripa can be slammed for her body type or weight, or anything similar to it. She's literally one of the most charming, hottest, and most elegant females in the showbiz industry. What's more inspiring is that she works out to keep her figure healthy, youthful, and slender. Why can people be so disrespectful and stupid?
