Kelly Ripa Biography

Entrepreneur, host, actress and producer, Kelly Ripa, is one of the most powerful voices in media, with a diverse body of work both on and off camera.

A household name for nearly two decades, Ripa has anchored the award-winning top morning talk show "Live" franchise for 16 years. In May 2017, it was announced that Ryan Seacrest will be her new permanent co-host. Ripa has established "Live" as a major destination for politicians, entertainers, athletes and other cultural icons. Ripa’s accomplishments extend beyond daytime television as she has evolved her career as an entrepreneur, producer and designer.

In 2016, Ripa was honored with her fifth Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host on behalf of "Live." In addition, Ripa has received two TV Guide Award nominations for Favorite Daytime Talk Show and multiple People’s Choice nominations for Favorite Talk Show Host.

Beginning her entertainment career as an actress, Ripa’s success spans numerous celebrated television series. Most recently, Ripa guest-starred on an episode of the hit comedy series Broad City, where her performance, playing an alternate side of her television persona, was met with rave reviews. In 2003, she ventured into primetime, starring in the half-hour sitcom, Hope & Faith as "Faith Ford." The series ran for three seasons on ABC. Prior to this, Ripa concluded her 12-year tenure as "Hayley Vaughan," the role which launched her career, on ABC’s beloved daytime drama, All My Children. For her performance on the successful show, Ripa won three Soap Opera Digest Awards, two for Outstanding Younger Lead Actress and one for Hottest Romance, which she shared with her real-life husband and co-star, actor Mark Consuelos. In addition, Ripa received three Daytime Emmy nominations, two for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and one for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.

Ripa has earned numerous accolades over the years including the prestigious Excellence in Media Award from GLAAD in 2015, for her efforts advocating for equality and dedication to driving acceptance forward. She is consistently recognized by The Hollywood Reporter’s as part of its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 list, and was recently acknowledged as one of the 35 Most Powerful People in NY Media. In October 2015, Ripa was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
