Kelly Ripa Fires Back at ‘Weirdos’ Claiming New Family Photos Show She’s ‘Missing a Foot’

by Samantha Whidden

Clearing the air – Live With Kelly and Ryan star Kelly Ripa took to her Instagram account to address a super weird theory that she’s missing… a foot.

On Monday (July 5th), Ripa shared some snapshots of her family’s recent trip to Greece and Italy, “Last year’s graduation trip for our oldest son and niece was delayed long enough to become a graduation trip for the family newborns as well,” she wrote in the caption. 

Some of Kelly Ripa’s followers began to ask where one of her feet was. “This is crazy, but where are your feet?” One follower asks. Although some fans immediately responded with logical answers, including her legs are crossed, questions about the limb continued to be asked.

Spoiler Alert: Kelly Ripa Has Two Feet 

While chatting with her husband, Mark Consuelos, about the weird remarks, Kelly Ripa reveals in an Instagram Story that she in fact has two feet. “Maybe I’m just jet-lagged, but can you explain to me why people are fixated on my feet in a family photo?” She asks. “Obviously I’m not [missing a foot]. There it is in the other photos. Could it be that I just crossed one foot over the other?”

She wasn’t done yet. Kelly Ripe then says, “But since [the followers] are zooming in… there’s another foot there. It’s just crossed over. I’m standing with my foot crossed over my other foot. It’s just… confusing.” Mark jokingly then tries to justify the questions by saying that the followers don’t have the zoom function on and that’s why they can’t see the foot. 

“Oh please!” Kelly Ripa responds. “Even I have that. Look.” She then zooms up to Mark’s face while he cracks up laughing. Ripa then says. “You guys are weirdos. You are. There, I said it.” 

While calling out one of her followers who demanded she shows “proof” that she does have two feet, Kelly Ripa says, “She says ‘prove it, prove it.’ So I’m going to. Sorry, you all have to see this.” She then gets up from her lounging chair and shows off BOTH her feet. “That. Two feet,” Kelly declares. “I know. You’ll say, ‘Oh, that’s not real. That’s not really Kelly.’ She turns the camera back to her face. 

When Mark points out his feet, Kelly jokingly adds that she won’t be showing her followers his feet because they have already “been through enough.”

Kelly Returns to ‘Live With Kelly and Ryan’

Kelly made her return to her hit series Live With Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday. Ripa has been on the morning talk show since 2001 when she started working with Regis Philbin.

In 2011, Regis retired and Kelly was a solo talk show host for a year before Michael Strahan joined her on the stage for four years. He left the show to co-host for Good Morning America in 2016 and Ryan Seacrest took over as co-host.
