Was Kelly Ripa “forced” to work?

Fans have expressed concern for Kelly Ripa lately. She went missing from the ABC broadcast after she came down with an illness. Kelly made a brief return, which had viewers wondering if she was “forced” to show up to work. She wasn’t 100% better and needed a lozenge to speak.

Here are some of the comments the viewers made on Twitter when she was sick.

  • “They deada** got Kelly Ripa working while she sounds like Christian Bale’s Batman….”
  • “Kelly, @KellyRipa @LiveKellyRyan the voice!?? How are you going to do this!!? Get better soon.”
  • “Who let Kelly Ripa be on air sounding like a chain smoker?”
  • “Who thought this was a good idea!?”

Once again, she disappeared from the talk show the following week. Kelly Ripa took to her Instagram Stories to share a dramatic photo of herself with her hand over her head. She wrote across the photo: “Day six of nothing wrong with me,” even though she clearly looked miserable.

Kelly took every test possible to determine the cause of her mystery illness. She shared that she didn’t have COVID-19. Producers demanded that the television personality take time off from the show. This comes after they received online backlash from the fans. Even though Kelly’s voice is still hoarse, she’s feeling much better.

Her co-host Ryan Seacrest asked her how she was feeling. Kelly Ripa explained that she sounds “worse” than she feels. However, producer Michael Gelman was also concerned and wanted her to stay home. Kelly joked it feels like getting a snow day without having any snow because she felt “fine” even though she couldn’t talk.

Does she need another break from LIVE?

Kelly Ripa hinted to the show’s producers that she’s going to need “time off.” On Tuesday’s episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, she talked about taking a “sabbatical.” She joked that she wanted to be a backup dancer on Madonna’s upcoming tour.

“I’m going to need some time off,” Kelly Ripa said.

She shared that the Queen of Pop is casting dancers and supermodels between the ages of 50 and 90. Ryan told them to “pull the show.” He then asked Kelly whether she wants to try out as a dancer or a supermodel on the tour.

“Do I go on the road with Madonna?” Kelly Ripa asked. “Either way, I’m going to need a sabbatical.”

Ryan requested that she gets “time off soon” for being part of the tour. Of course, Kelly Ripa is not joining Madonna’s tour anytime soon. What are your thoughts? Do you think she should take a break from the show? Sound off below in the comment section.
