There is a nasty rumor going around town that must be cleared up immediately. Perhaps you’ve heard it! Perhaps you haven’t! The point is, it’s out there—in The Globe, specifically—and needs to be quashed: Kelly Ripa does not eat her cuticles, she does not think they “taste like chicken,” and her Live With Kelly and…

Kelly Ripa Defends Co-Host Ryan Seacrest Amid Assault Allegations: 'You Are a Privilege to Work With'

The opening segment of Thursday’s episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan ended with what could be easily interpreted as a thinly veiled response to recent allegations that co-host Ryan Seacrest assaulted a former E! stylist.

Kelly Ripa Names Ryan Seacrest as Her New Co-Host 

I’m writing this morning’s Dirt Bag while watching Kelly Ripa running through the backstage area of her show’s set, as though late for work. “Don’t be nervous,” she’s telling me, the TV audience. “This is gonna be great.” Ripa is in such a strange mood today because she’s about to announce her new co-host LIVE on…

Britney Spears Doesn't Remember Meeting Taylor Swift Despite Having Met Her Twice

On Sunday morning, Backup Queen of Las Vegas Britney Spears was a guest on the Kyle and Jackie O Show to talk about her new music, but that’s not important.

Kelly Ripa Brought Up Michael Strahan's Divorce On Live TV and Now I'm as Uncomfortable as He Is

Mom and dad are still fighting... I think.

Kelly Ripa Spotted Carrying David and Goliath, Is Handling This Like a Fucking Queen

Are you already burned out by the Kelly Ripa/Michael Strahan/ABC story? First of all, it’s been like 36 hours so if you are, you need to chill. This is, like, stage two of five. Second of all, I’m about to reel you back in, because Ripa just made what could possibly be the most well-curated and satisfyingly shady…

Kelly Couldn't Give Less of a Shit About Michael, Is Busy Celebrating Her 20th Anniversary

In reports published Thursday by TMZ and The New York Times (don’t you just love when celebrity gossip falls all over the media spectrum?), it has been revealed that while things over at ABC are as tense as previously believed (perhaps even more so), the reasons for those tensions are a little more complicated than we…
