When you work with someone every day like Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa do, tensions are bound to get high occasionally. After a set of seemingly rude remarks from his cohost, Ryan fired back at Kelly. Yet, many of his fans think he should’ve said more. Are the two hosts in a feud or was this a simple misunderstanding? Keep reading and let us know what you think.
Kelly Ripa Implies Cohost Doesn’t Know English
Fans of LIVE with Kelly and Ryan know that this is not the first time the pair’s on-air antics have made headlines. Viewers have called Kelly Ripa out in the past for cutting her cohost off while he’s talking, which is something she does during nearly every show.
Kelly and Ryan usually share a few personal things or something they are interested in at the beginning of the program. This week, Kelly suggested that her cohost start watching Industry. “It’s so, so good and I have no idea what’s going on,” she said about the show.
Kelly went on to say that the subject matter of the show, which is finance related, goes over her head. However, that isn’t the only issue she sees with Ryan being able to comprehend the plot. According to Kelly, the heavy British accents may make it difficult for the red carpet commentator to understand.
“There are British accents, but there are Americans too, so you’ll be able to understand it,” she said to Ryan, who was looking increasingly annoyed. Much of the time, these comments from Kelly blow over, but Ryan decided to address it live on air this time.
Ryan Seacrest Claps Back At Kelly On Air
“I can understand English,” Ryan replied to Kelly on air. The rebuttal received a few chuckles from the studio audience. His cohost started to explain that the actors on the show use “really fast British.” She also suggested Ryan may still have trouble understanding the different dialects and accents.
“With all due respect, I can understand fast English, even British fast English,” Seacrest said with a laugh. He went on to note that he has been watching the British news for days following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
Despite insisting he was capable of understanding the English language, Kelly insisted that he watch the show with subtitles on. To shrug off the mildly awkward moment on air, she added that Industry is full of rich people. Luckily, Ryan will probably know everyone there.
The heated moment seemingly cooled down quickly and the show went on, but Ryan’s fans are growing tired of Kelly’s behavior. Do you think Kelly meant to insult Ryan with her remarks? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Viewers can tune in to see Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan on weekdays at 9 a.m. EST on ABC.
