KELLY Ripa has hit back at a fan who suggested that the hosts of Live! don’t bother with “personal grooming” while on TV.
As Kelly shared the first trailer for a new season of her morning show, Live! With Kelly and Ryan, a fan commented that if they have to “get dressed for every Zoom work call so why can’t you guys.”

The trailer saw Kelly and co-star Ryan Seacrest wake up in bed before prepping for a first day at work, with the pair brushing their teeth, styling their hair – and Kelly slamming the door, knocking Ryan’s mirror to an angle.
“The only issue I have with this show (and I watch daily since i am at hme nowadays) uis the lack of personal grooming,” commented one irate follower.
“I mean, it’s a nationally televised show.”
Kelly responded to confirm that both she and Ryan are “dressed” as they have to follow “FCC rules”, but the fan, known only as @thethingsthatbringmejoy, replied: “Properly dressed.”

The TV host then retorted: “I’ll bring it up at the next meeting.”
Kelly has been fronting Live! With Kelly and Ryan from a bedroom for the last few months, as the studio closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But she came under fire for misleading fans into believing she was in hosting her morning show live from New York, when she was in fact in the Caribbean.

In July, however, fans felt for the star when she broke down on TV over the death of Regis Philbin.
She was unable to fight back tears paying tribute late co-host and friend Regis who passed away July 24 from natural causes at 88-years-old.
A heartbroken Kelly said at the beginning of the Live! with Kelly and Ryan: “As people get older, you always know that certain things are inevitable, and passing away is one of those things, but Regis is one of the people that we all believed would somehow figure out a way around the inevitable. It was not in the cards, I suppose.”
