Live With Kelly: Chris Harrison’s Big Night Out
Kelly welcomed everyone to the show by declaring that it was “Drunk Thursday.” Apparently, there is a new margarita machine at the Live With Kelly office, although Gelman didn’t seem to know it. Chris Harrison, the host of “The Bachelorette,” was the co-host for the second time in a row. Kelly told him to spill the beans about his big night out in New York, and he said, “I did hit the town, and it hit me right back.” He said he enjoyed dinner at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants, and revealed that he and Gordon are on the same soccer team back in Los Angeles. Chris said that he is a great character, but also is secretly a very nice guy. Chris also ran into Ashley and JP, contestants on previous seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” They are still happily together, and probably planning a wedding soon. Kelly’s theory was that the couples only work out when they meet on “The Bachelorette,” because the women are in charge.
Kelly, on the other hand, did not have such a fun-filled night. After getting home from her son’s track meet, she fell asleep in her clothes on her daughter’s bed after reading her a story– she joked that it had been 50 Shades of Grey. She was awoken by her husband the next morning, not realizing that it was already 6 AM.
Ripa & Pippa
Chris said that he had a better suggestion for a new co-host than who Eli Manning had suggested, Michael Strahan: Royal In-Law Pippa Middleton. News is breaking that Pippa may be coming to New York for a visit, and one newspaper suggested she host with Kelly, forming the duo of “Ripa and Pippa.” Kelly said that Regis used to call her “Pippa” because he could never remember the name “Kelly.” She also said that, since Pippa Middleton had been named ‘best bum,’ she was obsessed with looking at pictures of her backside. While she thinks Pippa has a very nice one, Kelly said that she likes her bums a bit more voluptuous.
Kelly then read a story, one that she said she thought was a joke when Gelman first told to her; a woman from California was very badly burned after she picked up some pretty rocks on the beach, went home with the rocks in her pocket, and they caught on fire. She went to the hospital and her kitchen floor was completely burned. Experts are now trying to figure out how and why the rocks would have caught fire after leaving the beach. Chris joked that it was because the beaches in California are so polluted.
Live With Kelly: Service Horses and Betty White Roast
Chris pointed out a new article that stated that horses are now being considered as service animals, just like dogs are. Therefore, they would theoretically now be allowed to travel on planes. Kelly noted how badly those flights would smell. She also told a story about a time when she had to kiss a man on a sitcom with terribly bad breath. She offered him gum and mints several times, but each time he declined.
Chris also stated that he had an “unnatural” crush on 90-year-old TV veteran Betty White. Last night she had her Comedy Roast, and Chris and Kelly read some of the night’s best jokes, all poking fun at her advanced and impressive age. Larry King said, “She’s so old that the color ‘white’ is named after her.” David Letterman joked, “She’s seen seven US Presidents– naked.”
Kelly Ripa: Christina Hendricks Undergarments
“Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks– the day’s first guest– is well known for her beautiful curvy figure, which is highlighted by the costumes on the show. Kelly said that she is going to ask her what types of undergarments she wears under her clothes as Joan Holloway, and if everything falls out when she takes them off. Chris said that he “approves that message.” They also announced the show’s other guests, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough of “Dancing with the Stars,” and a new Top Teacher.
Before the Spring into Spring Travel Trivia, Kelly told another quick story: a 67-year-old man died of a heart attack in Texas while receiving a lap dance. She said that reports were he “died with a smile on his face.” Then, a viewer won a trip to Aruba after her answer of “Angelina Jolie” was the correct one for the question, “Who wrote the forward of Billy Bob Thornton’s new book?” Also, an audience member won place settings of Lenox china.
Live With Kelly: End of Show Inbox
Also, at the end of the show, Kelly answered a couple of emails from viewers, including one who thought she lived next door to Chris Harrison’s “twin”– no one really saw the resemblance, though! They also showed a quick parody sketch of “The Bachelorette” featuring Kelly with her co-host suitors: Nick Lachey, Michael Strahan, and Chris Harrison.
