‘Live’ Host Ryan Seacrest Addressed On-Air Where Kelly Ripa Has Been on the Show

Some people stay, some go and sometimes we don't know where people are going. But when Live With Kelly and Ryan star Kelly Ripa were absent from the popular ABC morning program again, her co-host Ryan Seacrest had a few funny words about where she was.
During the Aug. 9 daytime talk show, Ryan and guest co-host Katie Lowes discussed embroidered pillowcases as part of a segment on bargaining. At one point during the conversation, Kelly received a brief shout letting her know her absence was felt that day.
"Kelly, we miss you," Katie said to the cameras. "We got you one of Consuelos," referring to the 26-year-old husband of Generation Gap host Mark Consuelos. But that was not all. Ryan jumped into the lighthearted moment and shared his own joke in response. "I heard she won the lottery. She's fine," said the longtime American Idol personality.
While it's not the answer Live fans might have been expecting, Ryan isn't wrong that Kelly is doing well this summer. Aside from filming her new ABC quiz show Generation Gap, she spends time with her Mark and children.

Still, the former actress and the Riverdale star have taken time to relax as a couple and empty nesters.
"This is our first vacation in 25 years without kids and parents," the Live Wire writer told viewers during a July episode. "Usually it's us, with the kids or... Kit and Caboodle. So Mark and I said, 'What are we going to do without the kids?' And the kids were like, 'What are you going to do without us!? We're your whole life!' And I said, 'Wrong again, kids.'”
So when will we see Kelly back on Live? We think it's just a matter of time. Also, she hasn't made any official comments about whether she'll be leaving her place on the show any time soon. In the meantime, here's looking forward to Kelly and Ryan reuniting!
