About Kelly
  • Kelly Ripa is the co-host of the Emmy-winning syndicated morning talk show "LIVE with Kelly and Michael."
  • Currently in her 12th year with the show, Ripa took the lead on "LIVE" during the search for a new co-host. Fifty-nine different men and women shared the co-host desk over a nine month period. During that time, she helped to build the show's key demo ratings and kept the momentum going until a new host was named. On September 4, 2012, legendary NFL star and sports broadcaster Michael Strahan was named the permanent co-host of the newly-rechristened show.
  • In 2012, Ripa and former co-host Regis Philbin were honored with their second Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host for "LIVE" after eleven consecutive nominations in that category. Also during her tenure, the show was nominated for ten Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Talk Show, and was presented with the award for the first time at the 2012 ceremony. 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.
  • Ripa ventured into primetime in 2003 on "Hope & Faith," starring with Faith Ford in the half-hour sitcom, which ran for three seasons on ABC. In 2002, Ripa concluded a 12-year stint as Hayley Vaughan on ABC's "All My Children." She won three Soap Opera Digest Awards for her work, 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. Ripa also received three Daytime Emmy nominations, two for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and one for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
  • She had a recurring role on the hit NBC series "Ed," appeared in the telefilm "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie," and won acclaim for her turn in late night TV's most coveted role: hosting "Saturday Night Live." She voiced guest appearances on the popular animated series "Kim Possible" and "Duck Dodgers." In 2007, she hosted the "50 Funniest Women Alive" special on the Oxygen network, and twice has hosted the TV Land Awards, in 2007 and 2012. Ripa also served as host of the annual ABC "Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade" for nine years, eight of them with Philbin. They received a 2006 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Special, and nominations in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
  • Best known for her television work, Ripa also has several feature films to her credit. She appeared in the acclaimed Miramax feature "Marvin’s Room" in 1996, and in 1999 won the Best Actress award at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival for her work in "The Stand-In." Most recently, she was part of the voice cast of the computer-generated animated feature "Fly Me to the Moon."
  • Milojo Productions is Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' SoHo based production company. It began with the Emmy-nominated feature documentary "The Streak" for ESPN, which told the compelling story of a Florida high school wrestling team with an extraordinary 34-year winning streak. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. In addition, Milojo had a first-look development deal with TLC and Discovery, and premiered the docu-series "Masters of Reception" in 2009. Following that, the company launched a country-wide search for female inventors and premiered "Homemade Millionaire" on TLC in fall 2010, hosted by Ripa. They also were thrilled to announce that their film "Off the Rez," with filmmaker Jonathan Hock, was accepted to the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. That project aired on TLC later that year. Milojo produced a pilot for Lifetime and recently produced an exciting new documentary series for CMT entitled "Cheer," which premiered in September 2012 and has received critical acclaim. The company also aired several in-studio election specials on LOGO, with Wanda Sykes hosting. They currently are producing another sports-related documentary soon to be announced, and have other non-scripted and web-based projects in production and development. Milojo also sold two scripted projects to ABC and is developing more in the scripted arena.
  • Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of "All My Children" and married in 1996, a year before their characters married onscreen. The couple lives in New York with their three children, Michael, Lola and Joaquin.
