What does Kelly Ripa want to do?

In an in-depth interview with The Wall Street Journal, Kelly Ripa talked about her future plans. The former All My Children star admitted that she wants to walk away from the cameras one day. She would rather work behind them. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, she’s producing two Lifetime Movie projects with her husband Mark Consuelos.

Kelly first shared her career plans in her book, Live Wire: Long Winded Short Stories. It covers stories from her life and career. In her interview, Kelly admitted that she was sure she wanted to do it. Then, she got “the opposite of imposter syndrome” when she started writing the book.

The Hope & Faith star shared her “ultimate career plan.” Kelly admitted that she would rather not be on television. This comes after the premiere of her game show Generation Gap, over the summer. It’s unclear if she only signed on to host the show for one season.

“My ultimate goal is to get off camera,” Kelly Ripa told Wall Street Journal. “Because I really do enjoy the process of behind-the-scenes creativity more than [being] in front of the camera.”

She didn’t reveal if that means she will leave Live! in the near future. The former actress didn’t even talk about her future projects. Kelly’s latest comments come after she hinted about Live With Kelly and Ryan coming to an end. Both Kelly and Ryan joked that the show could follow Phantom of the Opera, which ended its 40-year-run.

Gearing up for her career shakeup?

Kelly Ripa’s new book is currently available for pre-order. It will release on Tuesday, September 27 in audiobook, Kindle edition, and hardcover. The collection of stories shows a different side of the former soap star. Kelly describes herself as a daughter, friend, mother, and wife.
