Description

An instant New York Times bestseller from Kelly Ripa—a sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

In Live Wire, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.

Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor... Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.

      • bioText:

        Kelly Ripa is one of the most powerful voices in media, with a diverse body of work both on and off the camera. A household name for more than two decades and a career at ABC spanning over 30 years, Ripa has welcomed viewers with her sharp wit every morning as the host of the award-winning Live franchise. Having established Live as a major destination for entertainers, politicians, athletes and other cultural icons during her over 20 year stint as host, Ripa has been honored with six Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Talk Show Host and 15 Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show, with a win in the category in 2012.


        Beginning her career in entertainment as an actress, Ripa's success spans across numerous celebrated television series playing various roles. First appearing on the soap opera All My Children, where she met her husband Mark Consuelos on set, Ripa earned three Daytime Emmy nominations. Ripa additionally guest-starred on an episode of the hit comedy series Broad City, where her performance, playing an alternate version of her television persona, was met with rave reviews. Ripa also starred in three seasons of the half-hour ABC sitcom Hope & Faith and in 2003, took a turn in TV's most coveted role, hosting Saturday Night Live.


        Ripa and her husband ventured into the development side of entertainment when they began their NY-based production company, Milojo Productions. Milojo produces and creates content across multiple platforms, working with Bravo, Logo, VH1, E!, CMT, HGTV, WeTV, TLC, Oxygen, ABC Signature, Hulu and Discovery. Additionally, Milojo produced Emmy®-nominated documentary The Streak for ESPN and critically-acclaimed documentary Off The Rez for TLC.


        Ripa has earned numerous accolades over the years, including the prestigious Excellence in Media Award from GLAAD and Glamour's Woman of the Year Award. She is also consistently recognized by The Hollywood Reporter and has been named as part of its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 list, as well as the publication's 35 Most Powerful People in Media.


        In September 2022, Ripa will add author to her resume, when her collection Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories is published by Dey Street Books.


        Ripa lives in New York City with Mark Consuelos, and together the couple have three children.
