Kelly Ripa unimpressed with husband’s performance as Ryan replacement

During his first day as Ryan Seacrest’s replacement, the 51-year-old shared a funny story about a time he went to New York with their daughter Lola (who is now 21).

Prior to heading to the art gallery, Lola took the time to give her parents a really stern warning. Here’s what he recalled her saying, “The receptionist is going to look at you, and she’s not going to be very nice.”

Kelly Ripa added: “They’re going to treat you like scum.”

Mark Consuelos also recalled being such a hit with Lola’s friends at the art gallery. He remembered charming them and watching them flash smiles at him.

Unimpressed, Kelly remembered the story and her “bougie” husband a bit differently.

She clarified: “You behave in a way that is so bougie and ridiculous.”

Despite their daughter’s warning, Kelly Ripa tells viewers that everyone loved her husband and he was “treated well” and not in the manner their daughter believed they would be treated.

How did viewers feel about him as Ryan’s replacement?

As fans know, Ryan Seacrest has sat beside Kelly Ripa for the last six years. During his last episode, Kelly told Ryan that he did an incredible job of making everyone love him over the past few years. So, it was a sad moment for everyone to see him leave the show. Unsurprisingly, it was a bittersweet moment for Kelly as saying goodbye to Ryan meant saying hello to Mark. So, she would get to do her job while spending even more time with her husband.
