Kelly Ripa & Michael Strahan Back From Vacation
Kelly Ripa brought some boring vacation photos, that weren’t really all that boring. she and Michael Strahan have been on a strange vacation schedule and haven’t seen each other in three weeks. They had to catch up before getting to anything else.
First item on the agenda was Kelly’s new hair cut. Michael was one of only two men to notice Kelly Ripa got a trim, the other being her hiking guide from vacation. On vacation, Kelly’s daughter Lola turned 12. They all went dune buggying for her birthday and father’s day.
Kelly Ripa Takes Family Dune Buggying in Mohab Desert
In the photo, Kelly’s oldest son was wearing scuba-like goggles. Kelly said that you have to wear goggles and a bandana around your face to keep the harsh sand and dirt away. She said Mark Wahlberg was in the Moab Desert where her family was vacationing. Fans kept asking if she was with Mark, which she was. It was just Mark Consuelos, not Wahlberg. She never ran into the film star on her vacation, but he was apparently everywhere she was shortly after.
Kelly said that she loves the American Southwest and highly recommends it for family trips.
Michael Strahan: Driving Back from Long Island, NY
Michael Strahan’s vacation was two weeks ago. He said that he and his wife were supposed to go to a charity concert in Miami, but ended up going to Long Island. He said the traffic is “absurd.” Michael said he was “going at the speed of traffic” but he was trying to race the time and prove the GPS wrong. Kelly said the thing to do is to get behind Gellman, because he can make it back from Long Island on the 4th of July in 45 minutes.
The one time that Kelly followed Gellman driving, she said it was nerve wracking to say the least. She’s an offensive, terrified driver and ended up calling him to give him an earful for his driving.
