Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

With her ability to balance dramatic and comedic television roles with a successful family life and morning talk-show, Kelly Ripa proved to be a paradigm of the modern working mother. Though her coy sex appeal and dramatic flair contributed to a 12-year career on the long-time soap "All My Children" (ABC, 1970- ), it was Ripa's vibrant personality and unique sense of humor that made her a morning talk show star. Able to stand on her own opposite the brazen antics of television veteran Regis Philbin, Ripa breathed new life into "Live with Regis and Kelly" (ABC, 1988- ). Ripa's down-to-earth personality and willingness to share her off-camera life with viewers quickly made her one of the most popular names on morning talk-show circuit.

Notes

"Nobody should be impressed by me. It's very silly to think I'm having a hard time of it, just because I have two jobs and two kids. Puh-leez. The two salaries afford me a nice lifestyle, I can hire people to help me and I have a working spouse. I'm fascinated and deeply impressed by single moms who juggle jobs and kids. They are the ones we should be in awe of." --Kelly Ripa quoted in TV Guide, August 18, 2001.
