Television show host Kelly Ripa recently joked about how intimate it was to video chat with people. Video chatting has become the new norm for most people to communicate during the pandemic.


On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, Kelly Ripa, 50, appeared virtually on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” There she opened up about the new way of long-distance communication.

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease has left people needing to improvise to communicate without seeing each other. The go-to application for most people is Zoom.

On Jimmy Fallon’s talk show, Ripa revealed that she, too, was getting used to doing things via Zoom. While at home, the star began her interview by joking about the intimacy of video chatting, saying to Fallon:

"I love being with you even if it's from a strange set up in my bedroom."


The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host is actually married to actor Mark Consuelos, and they’ve been together for more than two decades. However, that didn't stop Ripa from continuing to tease Fallon by stating:


"I feel like this is as close to infidelity as I will ever be."


Many people thought the pandemic would end in 2020, and with it, the requirement of video chatting applications like Zoom. The co-host confessed that she was one of those people who had that hope.

She shared how disappointed she was that the New Year has come with the same challenges. Ripa imagined 2021 being a year when people could finally go outside and out to parks.

When the pandemic hit, the television personality and her family were actually on vacation on a Caribbean island. She and her family chose to stay put before shutdown became a norm in the US.


Ripa and Seacrest launched the home edition of their show in March 2020.

So she actually shot some of her and Ryan Seacrest’s morning show from the secret location. The star wasn’t home for a long time, only became news months later in May 2020.

Ripa and Seacrest launched the home edition of their show in March 2020. Each star got to appear virtually from the safety of their homes to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Even their guests also got to feature remotely on the show. Ripa and her “Riverdale” actor husband are parents to three children: son Michael, 23, daughter Lola, 19, and another son Joaquin, 17.
