TV show host Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa celebrated Halloween with a full transformation. They decided to become "The Addams Family."
The "Live" morning show shoots an annual Halloween holiday card. This year, Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa decided to transform into "The Addams Family."
The spooky family was created by cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938. It went on to inspire the ABC sitcom, two live-action films, and a newly-released animated movie.

New Jersey-born Ripa, donned a Peter Pan-collared dress to embrace the essence of the family's daughter Wednesday Addams. She also had her hair styled into severe braids.
Ripa also played the matriarch of the family Morticia. Her husband of 23 years and Riverdale heartthrob Mark Consuelos played Addams family patriarch Gómez.
Executive producer Michael Gelman also joined the fun. He dressed up as the loyal butler Lurch while the production manager Art Moore transformed into Uncle Fester.
The preview of the Halloween episode also showed, Ripa, who earned $18 million for "Live!" in 2016, as a possessed Reagan from "The Exorcist."
