Kelly Ripa was flaunting a new hairstyle this morning on the second episode of the new season of 'LIVE With Kelly and Michael'.

The blonde co-host was sporting a slightly below the chin bob.  She tweeted, "Back in the saddle......with a new cut!"

During the show, she told Michael Strahan that her mother wasn't a fan of the new 'do, preferring her daughter with longer hair.

Appearing as a guest on today's show was Demi Lovato, who was on hand to hype the new season of 'X Factor.'  She also dished about joining the cast of 'Glee' this season.

Lovato talked about her "life-changing" trip to Africa for her 21st birthday last month.  She called Kenya her "new favorite place in the whole world" and reported that she helped build a medical clinic for the Free the Children charity organization during her journey.

We've included photos of Kelly that were taken in July and February respectively.  That said, which look do you prefer?

kelly ripa apartment

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have listed their SoHo apartment for $24,500,000.

Described as an "unparalleled penthouse," the New York City apartment located at 76 Crosby Street Condominiums (also listed as 81 Spring Street) is enormous, especially for Manhattan, measuring 6,792 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.

The couple bought the home in 2005 for $9,500,000 and spent two years renovating the space.

The foyer opens into the spacious living room with plenty of light coming from over-sized windows and a large skylight. Dark stained white oak flooring leads into the custom eat-in kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is clad in Carrara marble and blue stone, with custom milled wood and stainless cabinetry. It is filled with high end appliances, including two Electrolux dishwashers, three Sub-Zero refrigerators, and a six burner Wolf stove with griddle.

The master suite includes two large walk-in closets, and a marble master bath with radiant heat floors, a Jacuzzi soaking tub and warm steam shower.

The south end of the main floor opens to the guest/family bedroom wing with three bedrooms and two and a half baths, a large media/ playroom, a home office, and a laundry room with two over-sized washers and dryers.

The second floor has a service kitchen with wine storage and a dumbwaiter to the main kitchen, an additional bedroom and full bath, a media room with a large skylight and fireplace, another home office, and another dining room that opens to a full outdoor kitchen, and a home gym.

It is the outdoor space that truly sets it apart from most Manhattan apartments with a 2,500 square foot rooftop terrace that includes an outdoor living room with fireplace, hot tub, grill area, flatscreen television hung above ample outdoor seating, and an outside shower adjacent to the home gym.

kelly ripa channels theresa caputo

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan postponed their Halloween show last week due to Hurricane Sandy.  After determining that many months of hard work should not be wasted, they held the annual costume extravaganza on Monday, Nov. 5.

The show opened with the co-hosts dressed as 'The Voice' judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green in an elaborate set that included revolving chairs.  Gelman was rocking Adam Levine.

Strahan dressed up as Oprah, Tyler Perry and President Obama while Kelly had her way with Honey Boo Boo, Tan Mom, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj.

In a hilarious bathroom spoof, Ripa channeled Long Island Medium psychic Theresa Caputo, which included a cameo appearance by the real Theresa.

Check out more photos and video from today's Halloween show:

partners michael stahan and kelly ripa

It looks like the cat is out of the bag at ABC.  After more than six months of speculation Michael Strahan has reportedly been picked to join Kelly Ripa on 'Live!'

The former New York Giants defensive end won't be officially announced until Sept. 4, but word is spreading like wild fire that Strahan's rep left the building where the show is produced on 67th and Columbus in Manhattan, and he was grinning from ear to ear.

The 6'5" athlete is 40 and resides in Rutherford, New Jersey.  He tried out the seat formerly occupied by Regis Philbin in June and was apparently just what the network was looking for as a perfect foil for the petite blonde 41-year-old.  The rest ... as they say, is history.

TMZ got the inside scoop from a couple of staffers who claim the rumor mill within is all about Strahan as the 'It' guy.  Stay tuned...

Talk show host Kelly Ripa always looks fresh-faced on television and admits that she gets a little help.

Ripa was hosting the annual Super Saturday Garage Sale fundraiser in the Hamptons over the weekend and was overheard discussing her Botox injections.

Kelly revealed, "I work out absolutely every day. I don't overeat. I try to drink water but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead, as much as possible."

How does the television celeb know when it's time to get a fill?  "It's when my kids start asking me if I'm mad at them, and I go, 'Why do you think I'm mad at you?' They go, 'Because you're frowning.' I go, 'Oh no! I am? I'll be right back!' Give me Dr. Brant: He's the best, he is my real husband."

kelly ripa admits hubby stripped

Kelly Ripa spilled the family beans during a Q & A interview in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.  She revealed that her hot hunk husband Mark Consuelos got his start as an exotic dancer.

The 41-year-old morning talk show host gushed, "He is so unbelievably gorgeous, with a Mexican father and Italian mother born in Spain and raised in Italy."

That comment was the perfect lead-in for interviewer George Wayne who wanted to hear all about Consuelos' "stripper" days:

The couple met on the set of All My Children and eloped in May 1996.  They live in NYC with their children Michael, 14, Lola, 10, and Joaquin, 9.

kelly ripa and kim kardashian photo

Kim Kardashian took the hot seat next to Kelly Ripa as the co-host of Live! With Kelly on Monday.  As expected, she used the opportunity to talk about her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.

Kelly pointed out that Kardashian critics believe the marriage was all about business and had nothing to do with love and commitment.

Kim explained, "If you really think about it, if the marriage was a business decision, and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV … I'm a smart business woman. I would have stayed married longer."

Kim sarcastically added, "This was a bad business decision. If you really think about it, it doesn't make sense."

She told Ripa that immediately after filing for divorce she went to the home of her parents Kris and Bruce Jenner with two pair of sweatpants and a pair of pajamas.  Even now when she isn't traveling she splits her time between her family home and sister Kourtney's.

Kim continues to believe in fairytale endings and clings to the "hopeless romantic" label that causes most people to roll their eyes.  She is emphatic about one thing, she is still shocked by the backlash over the divorce.

Ironically, Kelly R  and Nick Lachey dressed up as bride Kim and groom Kris for their Halloween show on the very morning that Kim filed for divorce- photos here.

Check out the video clip, move the slider to 4:55 to hear Kim talk about the divorce:

kim k will co host live with kelly

Kim Kardashian shared some big news with her 12.5 million Twitter followers this morning.  She has landed a television co-hosting gig.
kim k tweets about live with kelly ripa

The reality show celeb will be seated next to Kelly Ripa for a LIVE! show that will air on Monday, January 23.  She'll interview Glee star Kevin McHale and will also be hyping the seventh season of Keep Up with the Kardashians.


It has been another big week for the Kardashian clan.  Matriarch Kris Jenner is judging the 2012 Miss America pageant at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Sin City.


Khloe Kardashian's paternal parentage was brought into question thanks to the decidedly loose lips of the late Robert Kardashian's ex-wife and widow.


Kim K has kept a relatively low profile after calling off her 72-day marriage. It seems likely she will share a few nuggets from that disaster when she hooks up with KR in NYC.

theyve got chemistry

A camera man caught up with the former Brothers & Sisters actor as he was getting ready to board a flight out of JFK airport back to LAX and asked the actor, "Do you think you could live in New York?"

Without hesitation Lowe responded, "We were just talking about that.  I love New York.  I love the energy.  It would be a change of pace.  I'm a California boy, but it could be fun."

kathie lee and kelly

One of the best skits during this week's Saturday Night Live was the one that poked fun at Kelly Ripa and Gelman as they went through the arduous task of finding a suitable replacement for the newly-retired Regis Philbin.

Nearly the entire ensemble cast had a role as Ricky Gervais, Charles Barkley, George Lopez, Garrison Keiller, Rosie O'Donnell, Zooey Deschanel, Ashton Kutcher, Denzel Washington and Antonio Banderas.

After rejecting the entire lot, Ripa decides there really is only one person who can step in.  Out comes fake Kathie Lee Gifford, operating a geriatric-style motorized scooter with one hand and upending a bottle of wine with the other.

Check out the video below:
