Kelly Ripa was today all smiles and seemingly clapping back at haters who've been logging their complaints on Live! With Kelly and Ryan. The 50-year-old talk show queen, together with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest, has proven the source of complaints multiple days in a row as fussy viewers slam "pre-taped" footage shared to the series' Instagram, with today bringing a fresh video, plus the mom of three looking jaw-dropping in a sizzling silk jumpsuit. Kelly, who has been making headlines for her time "off," is back and better than ever.

She's Back!

Scroll for the video, one that comes after late March saw Kelly front media outlets for her absence. The former actress, who was temporarily replaced by three guest co-hosts including media personality Maria Menounos and comedienne Ali Wentworth, was today 100% back. 

Footage showed the syndicated talk show welcoming media face Deja Vu, with the clip largely focusing on its "Jesus Chick" guest, although it did catch Kelly just before the cameras rolled live. Kelly was seen flaunting her killer body in a black silk jumpsuit, with the pint-sized star looking sensational.

All good looks, the wife to actor Mark Consuelos was the perfect host, with a caption welcoming Deja Vu. Replies, which have largely been slamming the show for its alleged repeat content, were thumbs-up. "GET IT!!!! That's my girl!!!" one user replied.

The feedback today contrasts that of the past few days, where grumbling viewers just weren't having it. "Repeats......??????? Why????" one fan had exclaimed, with "Not watching" also coming in as a fan complained of "pre-taped." See more photos after the video.

'In Trouble' For Repeats

While some speculated that the alleged repeats are due to Ryan's commitments on competition series American Idol, others felt it was no excuse as only one half of the co-hosting team is tied to Idol. "Ohhh y’all are in trouble for your repeats 😂😂😂😂," a comment read.

Kelly has, elsewhere, been in the news for marking a major milestone. At the end of March, the Persona Nutrition face celebrated husband Mark Consuelos turning 50, with the Riverdale actor now matching his 1996-married wife in age. More below.

Fabulous At 50

Kelly turned 50 in the fall of 2020, with the star getting profiled by Parade. “I think that people stop emotionally aging at a certain age. So I don’t feel 50,” she told the outlet. “I feel great and I don’t feel any different than I felt 10 years ago.”

“Every decade you learn from the previous decade the mistakes you made and I feel so much better now than I did going into my 40s, where I really didn’t have a routine,” Kelly added.
