Kelly & Michael: Men Vs. Women Chores
Happy 2013! For their first new show of the new year, Kelly & Michael decided to kick off host chat with a discussion on household chores. Kelly Ripa reported that throughout the past year, men have contributed more to household chores than ever before. They’re more likely to wash dishes, clean floors and do laundry. Plus, time spent doing these chores is up two minutes from 2003.
Michael said he feels as if men do their share. He actually enjoys washing the dishes and ironing clothes. “Folding is very therapeutic,” he said. “I’m the perfect man!” In Kelly’s house, the chores are always very gender specific. For example, she would never take out the trash.
