On the set of Live with Kelly and Mark, Kelly Ripa seems unflappable, unless something really obvious goes wrong behind the scenes, but she usually embraces her anxiety and keeps her face neutral. Or, she laughs, jokes, and directs the negative energy away. Unlike some people, she’s not afraid to talk about her health.

Live Kelly Ripa Had Some Bad Experiences On The Talk Show

Most people see a professional with her fingers on all the buttons in the ABC show. However, she admitted over the years that sometimes, things were not going well behind her facade. For instance, in 2022, she spoke about feeling depressed and there was a lot of anxiety at work. However, it all flowed out of her when a random stranger said something nice about her.

Kelly Ripa does let her anxious moments slip out now and then. Once, during the coronavirus years, she lost it when a fan criticized the way she and Ryan Seacrest did their personal hygiene for the ABC show. That was an anxious time for everyone, and she talked about it on social media. Those days are thankfully behind us, hopefully forever, and she is more relaxed.

Before David Duchovny arrived, Kelly Ripa discussed how people feel embarrassed to tell others about using weight loss drugs. The Live with Kelly and Mark host thinks that it’s a silly thing to be anxious about. Then, the conversation veered to anxiety, as the discussion mentioned reports that drugs like “Ozempic” can make people feel anxious and depressed. So, you might be a thinner person, but not necessarily a happier one.

The ABC talk show host did a few promos for mental health aids but at the 4:02 marker, she said:

I don’t get it at all. I love my anxiety. I feel like it serves me well. I have had both low-level and high-level anxiety…I take my anxiety everywhere I go…I like it. It comforts me [and] it is my constant companion. Whne I’m super anxious, that’s when I get super quiet.
