Fans are wondering where Kelly Ripa was on "LIVE" as actress Maria Menounos, 42, sat in her place without any explanation
Fans of Live with Kelly and Ryan were quite surprised when Maria Menounos sat in the seat of co-host Kelly Ripa during an episode of the show on March 22nd. Even more confusion arose when Maria returned on March 23 without explaining why Kelly was missing. It remains unclear if Kelly will return on March 24 or if her absence will last for a week. Reporters reached out to representatives from Kelly and LIVE for comment.
The video of the appearance of the new presenter can be viewed at the link below:
Kelly has been Live since 2001 when she was officially named a replacement Katie Lee Gifford… At the time, she sat next to By Regis Philbin in the chairs of the co-host. She became a co-host after Regis retired in 2011, and the show spent almost a year finding the perfect host, with various stars who auditioned. Michael Strahan officially took office in September 2012 but left in May 2016.
