Kelly Ripa shuts down internet trolls for shaming her for "vacationing too much"
The said photo where all the social media showdown happened was that of Consuelos, kissing Ripa on the cheek while the couple enjoyed a sunset
Kelly Ripa is not here to take any sh*t from anyone. Especially haters who for some reason feel like it's their place to tell the talk show host how she should be handling her work life. Because in that case, she will hit them with legitimate responses that would shut them up for good!
Take for example this recent case of people taking to Ripa's, 47, Instagram page to troll her for taking too many vacations, apparently. Is that even a thing? Well, these people think so. And on they went, leaving shady comments about the topic, raising concerns like, “Kelly please explain what’s happening with Live… are they repeats? How is it prepaid? I’m so distraught, nothing to watch with my morning coffee,” and “She’s the only anchor with the whole summer off. She doesn’t work that hard, to begin with.”
But the 'Live with Kelly and Ryan' host had her own dish of responses to hurl back. And in her most Ripa-esque style, she said, “I’m not an anchor, I don’t have the whole summer off, and I work extremely hard. Anything else?”
The 'All My Children' star is out vacationing with her husband Mark Consuelos and their children, Michael, 21, Lola, 17, and Joaquin, 15. The said photo where all the social media showdown happened was that of Consuelos, 47, kissing her on the cheek while the couple enjoyed a sunset. Along with that, Ripa also posted a photo of the 'Riverdale' actor posing with sons, Michael and Joaquin.
But Ripa being Ripa, this is not the first time she has shaded back people trying to shame her on social media for whatever absurd reason it might be. Back in March, the 'Hope & Faith'( alum also clapped back at a critic who thought they had some cheeky insights to share about Consuelos' height.
“Too bad he’s short when he tries to look taller. It looks funny. Just be who you are,” wrote a commenter at that time. Ripa's response? “He’s tall where it counts babe.”
But Ripa isn't the only strop clapbacker in the relationship as her husband dearest make it a point to set records straight when users tried to body shame her for being bikini-clad. “Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come,” he wrote. “If that offends you in some way if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you’re suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it.”
And it that doesn't set your couple-goals senses tingling, the truth behind how they got married surely would. Just within months of dating, Mark proposed her while they were at his apartment.
"I said, 'Ask me when you're serious.' And he said, 'I am serious. Let's go to Vegas tomorrow and get married'," Ripa had shared with her morning show audience. The two had eloped to Las Vegas on May 1, 1996. Ripa was clad in a $199 dress she had bought at a clearance sale for the occasion!
