Live With Kelly: Sam Champion Co-Hosts With Kelly Ripa
Today on Live With Kelly, “Good Morning America” weather anchor Sam Champion joined Kelly Ripa as host to reveal special announcements like that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will be new judges for X Factor! It was a special day, not just because Kelly’s kids are all big fans of Sam’s, but it is also Kelly’s dog’s birthday. Sam said he remembered Kelly’s kids when they were very little, and that they are not so little anymore! He also recounted a story about a time that they had done the weather together, and Kelly said she could not focus because Sam was so attractive. Sam also said that he loves being on “Good Morning America,” and it’s one of the most fun shows he’s ever worked on. Because he had done GMA first, by the time he sat down with Kelly, Sam had already been on the air four hours!
X Factor Judges: Britney Spears & Demi Lovato
Kelly made the announcement that both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato had signed on to be judges on “X Factor.” She and Sam agreed that they would make great judges, having both grown up in the music business.
They then moved on to two interesting cell phone studies: Sam read that twenty-one percent of millennial moms use their phone during the bathroom and twelve percent use it during “intimate time.” “Really, ladies? Are you reading 50 Shades of Grey?” Sam asked the audience, who hooted and cheered.
Kelly told a story about a time when she was in the bathroom, and she overheard two women talking about her husband, Mark Consuelos. She was hidden and squatting in the stall– which she so kindly re-enacted for us– so they did not know she was there. The two women were discussing how gorgeous Mark is, and expressed shock that he would be with Kelly, saying, “He could have anybody he wants… I mean, she must have something!” Sam made Kelly feel better by complimenting her stellar physique and calling the women “mean girls.”
Kelly Ripa: Red Lipstick
Sam pointed out that a lot of people feel that a woman wearing the color red is sexier or “looser”… and Kelly read about a new study from France that proved that waitresses who wore red lipstick got much higher tips. Kelly said that Mark pays more attention to her when she wears red clothes, but she does not like red lipstick, because she thinks it makes her teeth look yellow. After a few moments, someone brought Kelly some red lipstick, and she tried it on. Both Sam and the audience liked it a lot, but Kelly said, “I feel like I look like a sad clown.”
Live With Kelly: Dead Come Back To Life?
Kelly and Sam discussed a few stories about people coming back to life after being presumed dead. In China, a 95-year-old woman was found apparently dead in her home, only to wake up in a coffin two days later perfectly fine. Luckily, her coffin was above ground and she merely climbed out! Kelly said that she would have called 911 if she woke up in a coffin. Another story entailed a baby born premature in Argentina who was proclaimed dead. Miraculously, the baby was revived and was given a second chance at life.
Kelly joked by saying that she had sad news: the New Jersey “Tan Mom” would NOT be posing for Playboy. Apparently, the magazine turned the tan lady down. Kelly said, in her best tan mom imitation, that “they’re all jealous!”
Kelly Ripa: “The Bachelorette”
Kelly was upset that they did not have more time to discuss the premiere of “The Bachelorette,” but she assured the audience that they would go into detail about it tomorrow. The audience clapped to show that they watched it. Kelly said that she feels very bad for the new Bachelorette, because she has “slim pickins.” She also said that the gifts that the guys brought her were so creepy, that Kelly actually wanted to get a restraining order against them for herself!
Live With Kelly: Spring Into Spring Giveaway
After chatting about the rainy spring weather in New York, Kelly spun the “Spring Into Spring” wheel, giving a call-in viewer a chance at winning a trip. The man answered correctly when asked where Holly Cavanaugh, yesterday’s guest, was originally from (England), and won a trip to South Carolina. An audience member also won a Beauty.com gift certificate.
