Live: Kelly Ripa Vacation & “The Sunshine When She’s Gone” Book Review


Kelly Ripa Vacation In the Grenadines

Kelly Ripa returned to Live! with Kelly & Michael looking rested, relaxed and refreshed. Kelly and Michael both admitted to missing each other while Kelly was away; she was nervous that Michael would grow to like one of his guest co-hosts better than her. Kelly was jealous when she heard that Michael benchpressed her “mini-me,” Kristin Chenoweth.

Kelly and her family spent their spring break on a tiny island in the Lower Grenadines, where it was warm and balmy every day. Kelly brought a few vacation pictures with her to show the audience what a fun time she had. There was a “dive-in” movie for the kids featuring Jaws and also an Easter 10k marathon that Kelly ran with her son, Michael. Michael finished first, although we all know that Kelly is also in great shape. Michael Strahan pointed out how well she did in the Presidential physical fitness test.

Kelly Ripa: TV Version Of Fargo

According to new reports, there’s an official TV version of Fargo coming soon to small screens. Fargo is one of my favorite movies, so I’ll definitely be tuning in. Kelly is also a fan, and she has the North Dakota accent down pat. Maybe she could nab a guest starring role!

Michael has been to Fargo, North Dakota and remarked that he’d never felt such cold in his life. Kelly shared a story that she once heard from Dustin Hoffman. His son and daughter-in-law moved to North Dakota, and their dog pees out of the front door rather than stepping outside.

Kelly’s friend Thea Goodman has written a book entitled The Sunshine When She’s Gone, and she hopes that everyone will read it. Kelly explained that it’s an incredible story and a great read about complicated relationships.

Of course, you can also read Most Talkative by Andy Cohen, Kelly’s good friend and Live! guest. Kelly has already read Most Talkative three times.
