Don't mess with Kelly Ripa! The Live With Kelly and Ryan star took to social media this week to fire back at fans who boldly accused her of taking too many vacations following her repeated absence from the talk show.
"Kelly please explain what’s happening with Live... are they repeats? How is it prepaid? I’m so distraught, nothing to watch with my morning coffee," one user wrote. "She’s the only anchor with the whole summer off. She doesn’t work that hard to begin with," another added.
But Kelly wasn't tolerating the social media haters. "I’m not an anchor, I don’t have the whole summer off, and I work extremely hard. Anything else?" she wrote. Ouch! Imagine getting a message back like that from Kelly Ripa?
Kelly is currently in Greece with her husband, Mark Consuelos, and their two sons, Michael, 21, and Joaquin, 15. "Something about these Grecian sunsets?☀️???," she wrote alongside a pic of her and Mark on the island. She also posted a photo of Mark with his boys. We wish we scored an invite!
Not only has Kelly protected herself on social media, but she's also been vocal about sticking up for her man, whom she's been married to for 22 years. On a recent post, a fan made a rude comment about Mark's height. "Too bad he’s short when he tries to look taller. It looks funny. Just be who you are," they wrote. And Kelly's response was priceless. "He’s tall where it counts, babe," she wrote.
The 47-year-old has even admitted she likes calling out haters on social media. "I like trolling. I love trolling a troll. It is my favorite thing to do," she said in a previous clip before mocking some comments from fans. "'You have too much makeup on. Makes you look like a wax figure.' I say, 'No, no, no. I have on way more makeup than a wax figure. I know, because I have a wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s and she doesn’t wear this much makeup. But she didn’t get to go to the Academy Awards, did she?'" Keep telling them how you feel, Kelly!
