Kelly Ripa: Google+ Hangout With First Lady
Kelly Ripa started the show with news from her Google+ hangout with the First Lady. Despite being “absolutely terrified” to moderate, Kelly did a great job and said she learned a lot from the experience. She and the First Lady discussed topics such as nutrition, portion control and how to keep kids active.
Then, when she got home, she watched The Bachelor: Women Tell All, which was a considerably less intellectual experience. Now, Kelly plans on going “Bachelor cold turkey.”
Michael Strahan: Dinner With A-Rod
Last night, Michael had dinner with New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez and his girlfriend, Torrie. They dined at Nobu, and they weren’t the only celebrities there. Cynthia Bailey from the Real Housewives was also at dinner, and Michael “ran into a few people.” A-Rod is reportedly doing great after undergoing surgery on his hip. Michael reported that he’s doing all he can to get better as quickly as possible.
Michael also noted that Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman broke his leg in a parachute jump. The newspaper headlines are referring to him as “Crashman.”
Kelly & Michael: Queen Elizabeth Released From Hospital
Good news for royal watchers and well-wishers: Queen Elizabeth has returned home. The Queen was recently hospitalized with the horrible stomach bug that’s been going around, even in England! Thankfully, she’s doing much better and is almost completely recovered.
Kelly & Michael: Disguised Man Sneaks Into Vatican
Kelly and Michael discussed the hilarious story of a disguised man that snuck into the Vatican. He dressed as a bishop and made it past the Swiss Guards undetected before finally getting caught. However, it was pretty obvious from the picture that he wasn’t official. His outfit looked like it came from a costume shop, and his sneakers definitely weren’t Prada!
As Kelly pointed out, tourists can’t even visit the Vatican if their skirt isn’t the proper length or if they’re showing too much shoulder. It’s pretty impressive that he managed to fool so many people.
Kelly & Michael: Heels During Pregnancy
Kelly couldn’t remember if she wore heels often during her pregnancies, but all the currently pregnant celebrities are doing just that. Michael showed images of Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, Kristen Bell and even Kate Middleton sporting high-heeled shoes. That must be extremely uncomfortable!
Michael shared a message for all pregnant women that was very sweet: don’t wear heels for men’s sake, because they think you’re beautiful anyway. Kelly hated to rain on Michael’s parade, but she did reveal that “women don’t dress for men, they dress for women,” which is a very true statement.
