Kelly Ripa fires back at her haters criticizing her appearance during at-home tapings – ‘Certain things don’t matter anymore’

Over the past few weeks, daytime talk show host Kelly Ripa has found herself being attacked by haters.

They’ve gone after celebrity for her appearance in at-home tapings of her show “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” and at this point in the COVID-19 pandemic, she just doesn’t care anymore.

Fox News reported that Ripa, 49, fired back at her haters on Friday’s episode of her show, sending a message to the people who claim she doesn’t look as good as she usually does even though she’s been doing her own hair and makeup at home in quarantine.

“I don’t care. I have a new outlook on life,” Ripa said.

“Certain things don’t matter anymore and my appearance is one of those things that just don’t matter.”

Ripa’s co-host Ryan Seacrest, 45, responded by saying that “once in a while” viewers describe the pair as looking “shiny in our DIY show process.”

This really got Ripa going, as she said that the audience should be “lucky” they even got dressed at all for the at-home airings.

“First of all, let me just say, to people commenting about our appearance: How dare you and you’re lucky that we actually put clothes on,” she said.

“It’s harder than you think to roll out of bed and come to a TV show.'”

“It’s a disaster!” Seacrest agreed.

In fact, Ripa is so tired of doing her own makeup herself that she is “this close to just pulling the laptop into the bed.”

Ripa then composed herself and assured her audience that she’s “not going to do that because I keep telling myself, ‘You’re a professional and this is still a TV show and the days matter.’ It’s my mantra.”

This comes one week after Ripa revealed her 22 year-old son Michael Consuelos has been helping her film her show at home.

“If I’m being honest, he’s been producing my end of this show,” Ripa said. “So he really is sort of working while he’s finishing [school] because he’s set to ‘graduate’ from college. But I said to him, ‘Well, look at you. I mean, here you are. You’ve got a job before graduation. That’s got to make you feel good.’ He’s like, ‘Uh, yeah.’”
