Kelly Ripa Uses Botox ‘Every Seven Months’

Get ready to be shocked: Kelly Ripa uses Botox.

Not shocked? How about surprised? Amused? Confirmed your creeping suspicion that the 42-year-old morning host has been using Botox for years?

Ripa admitted to Elle Magazine that she uses Botox to make sure that she’s always TV ready.

Ripa said:

“It’s the Botox… Every seven months or so, my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now.”

According to E! Online, Ripa also occasionally gets Botox injections in her armpits to avoid sweating on TV. She’ll also get injections in her face to make sure that she’s perky and always ready for a close-up.

Ripa, who recently got a new host with Michael Strahan, has been doing her morning show Live! since 2001. Her face is on television a lot which is why the 42-year-old host decides to get Botox, but Ripa may not always be on television.

Ripa said:

“I’ve never really planned my career, and it’s led me to where I am now. I also enjoy writing, but will it lead to anything? I don’t know. I’m probably not very good, but lack of talent hasn’t stopped me before.”

Are you surprised that the morning show host uses Botox? Would you be surprised if she didn’t?
