Kelly Ripa has a broken marriage? No, Kelly has a broken foot, which her husband Mark Consuelos succeeded in almost one-upping with a ripped calf muscle. Ripa managed to continue her talk show responsibilities despite using crutches to protect her broken foot, but both Kelly and Mark dished all the painful details on social media, reported the New York Daily News.
Ripa revealed that her broken foot injury occurred during a dance class, but Mark didn’t share how he hurt himself or his views on Kelly’s injury. But Ripa’s photo summed up how she felt about their “broken” marriage.
“Are you kidding me right now?????????? WTF?” wrote Kelly.
“Can’t make this s**t up. Small calf tear,” shared Mark.
So how did Ripa’s broken foot occur? The Live With Kelly & Michael co-host shared that it was someone’s fault for leaving weights out during her dance class, reported Yahoo.
“I was in a dance class like I typically, usually am and somebody had left a weight on the floor,” explained Ripa. “Usually what happens is you do dancing and you do weights and then you put your weights back on your mat and I guess somebody left it not on their mat or kicked it when they were dancing, I don’t know… I landed on the weight and my foot went over and under the weight and it sounded like bubble wrap, you guys. I was like ‘Oohhh.’ “
And that bubble wrap noise that Kelly heard? That was the sound of Ripa’s foot breaking. Ouch.
In the past, Kelly has also revealed that she suffered pain from what Ripa termed “strange injuries,” as the Inquisitr reported.
Kelly credited a high-alkaline cleanse diet for helping her feel better.
“[An anti-acid diet is] responsible for me not being in pain. Yes. It has changed my life, it’s changed the whole way I think about food,” said Ripa.
But are such diets really effective and safe? Weight loss physician Dr. Caroline Cederquist views cleanses such as Ripa’s diet, which focus on eating alkaline-rich foods, as beneficial, reported People.
“I think all nutritional experts are in real agreement that almost everyone needs more fruits and vegetables in their diet,” said the doctor. “Typically, protein-containing foods and starches and grains are supposed to add acid to the body, and maybe so do caffeine, alcohol and processed foods in general.”
In contrast, vegetables and similar high alkaline foods are allowed on the cleanse, along with some fruits. But processed foods, sugar, dairy foods, and starchy carbohydrates such as white bread are banned.
“She did this for a reason,” said Cederquist about Ripa’s reason for going on the cleanse. “People don’t do a cleanse because they feel awesome. Nobody does that. They do a cleanse because something’s not right, they’re fatigued or exhausted or have joint pain or the bowels don’t work, there’s gas or bloating… It may not have anything to do with the fact that she’s replaced acidic food with alkaline. What is probably more likely is that she has some sort of hidden food sensitivity.”
Among the most typical food sensitivities are corn, yeast, egg, soy, wheat, dairy, and citrus, according to Cederquist.
