Ryan Seacrest Reveals Why ‘Live’ Cohost Kelly Ripa Missed a Week of Shows

Published

Flying solo. Ryan Seacrest joked his Live! With Kelly and Ryan cohost Kelly Ripa had retired after winning the lottery amid her week-long absence from the show.

The American Idol host, 47, was showcasing custom embroidered pillowcases alongside guest host Katie Lowes on the Tuesday, August 9, episode of the ABC morning talk show when the Scandal alum, 39, gave Ripa, 51, a shout-out. “Kelly, we miss you. We got you a Consuelos one,” she said, referring to Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos.

In response, Seacrest joked, “I heard she won the lottery. She’s fine.”

The New Jersey native is currently on vacation with Consuelos, 51, in the Hamptons, just one month after the former soap opera stars enjoyed an empty nester’s getaway. “This is our first vacation in 25 years without children and parents. … It’s usually us, with the kids or … kit and caboodle,” she confessed during a July episode of Live! “So Mark and I were like, ‘What are we going to do without the kids?’ And the kids were like, ‘What are you going to do without us!? We’re your whole lives!’ And I was like, ‘Wrong again, kids.’”

The couple — who tied the knot in 1996 — share children Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 19, and Lola, 21. During their trip, they went on a rock-climbing excursion in Utah and Colorado, where they had “the time of our lives,” as Ripa told viewers last month. “There was some work involved in this trip but that’s not what we were doing. We just went rock climbing. We went to the Amangiri [resort], out in Utah. It is luxury. It’s like, the kind of trip we would take without kids.”

Though the twosome enjoyed their time away together, the Hope & Faith alum joked that she felt like others were wondering about their children. “We got a massage! I mean, there were kids there, don’t get me wrong. But I could see the other families looking at us. People were like, ‘Where are your kids?’” she told Seacrest. “And I was like, ‘They’re adults now. They have jobs. They couldn’t get off work.’ And they were like, ‘Wait, what? You have kids who are adults?’ ‘Yes, we have kids who are adults. But more importantly, they’re not on this trip.’”

Earlier that month, Ripa opened up about one of the last child-free trips she and Consuelos took — their honeymoon — where he convinced her to travel to a nude beach. “I did go topless on my honeymoon and I’m so grateful — I’m so, so grateful,” she recalled on her talk show in July. “I was like, ‘How could you take that photo of me? The man at the photo mat saw me naked!’ … [But] do you know that I often rifle through the shoebox? And I go, ‘Well, just remember! It used to look like this!’”

More than two decades after that vacation, the Riverdale star still knows how to make Ripa feel sexy. “We’ve been together a long time, but all Mark has to do is look at me [and I] feel so special, so pretty and so young,” she told ET Canada in September 2020. “It’s probably his superpower. He knows how to treat his spouse like the only person in the world.”

“The Music Man” is leaving Broadway: Last-minute tickets to see Hugh Jackman

Published

on

Just like Harold Hill, “The Music Man” will be skipping town soon.

After opening in February 2022, the Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster starrer is set to close its 11-month run at the Winter Garden Theatre on Jan. 15, 2023.

That means just a few more chances to see Jackman’s con man Harold Hill manipulate small-town city folk like Foster’s kind-hearted Marian Paroo into buying band uniforms and instruments before fleeing for his next job.

“I love everything about the show,” Jackman said. “The audiences have been incredible and I’m going to be sad (when it’s over.)”

Luckily, tickets are still available for all remaining performances and you won’t have “trouble” finding them.

In fact, savvy searchers can snag seats for as low as $89 before fees on Vivid Seats.

So, if you want to catch the show that’s right for you, follow our lead.

All prices were found at the time of publication and are subject to fluctuation.

“The Music Man” schedule

Due to overwhelming demand, “The Music Man” recently extended their run two weeks from a Jan. 1 close to Jan. 15.

Up until then, shows will run from Tuesday through Sunday eight times a week.

Matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays begin at 2 p.m. Sunday matinees start at 3 p.m.

A complete calendar of all upcoming shows including dates, start times and links to buy tickets can be found here.

“The Music Man” runs 2 hours and 45 minutes with a single intermission.

Vivid Seats is a verified secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand. 

They offer a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure and your tickets will be delivered prior to the event.

“The Music Man” cast

Hugh Jackman, who you may also know from his role as Wolverine in a little franchise called “X Men,” leads a cast full of Broadway, stage and screen veterans.

Here’s everything to know about his castmates.

Sutton Foster (Marian Paroo) is a two-time Tony Award-winning actress for her roles in “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Anything Goes.” TV fans may recognize Foster from her star turn in TV Land’s “Younger” alongside Hillary Duff. She was also recognized for her work in “The Music Man” having received a nomination for Best Actress In A Musical.

Shuler Hensley (Marcellus Washburn) has been active since the early ’90s. Over the course of his career, he’s appeared onstage in “Les Miserables” and “Young Frankenstein” and on the silver screen in “The Greatest Showman” and “Van Helsing.”

Mark Linn-Baker (Mayor Shinn) works a lot. The veteran actor performed in “On the Twentieth Century” and “You Can’t Take It With You” on Broadway among many other productions on his varied resume. Of course, he’s also known for his starring role in “Perfect Strangers” as well as bit parts in “Succession” and “She Hulk.”

Jayne Houdyshell (Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn) commands the stage or screen whenever she performs. Whether it’s her dramatic stage slash screen turn in “The Humans” or portrayal of hardened Bunny in “Only Murders In The Building,” Houdyshell is a force to be reckoned with. Keep an eye out for her in “Causeway” alongside Jennifer Lawrence next.

Marie Mullin (Mrs. Paroo) won a Tony Award for her role in Martin McDonagh’s “The Beauty Queen of Leenane.” She also co-founded the Druid Theatre Company, located in Galway, Ireland.

All members of the cast and creative teams can be found here.

As always, the Great White Way will offer a range of classic musicals and upstart productions this fall, winter and spring.

Here are just five of the hottest shows you won’t want to miss in the next few months.

• “& Juliet”
