Kelly Ripa, renowned host of “Live with Kelly and Mark,” recently unveiled a deeply personal chapter of her life, chronicling her decision to embark on therapy at the age of 40.

During an intimate conversation on her podcast, “Let’s Talk Off Camera,” Ripa recounted how a seemingly innocuous exchange with a friend at a bar mitzvah became the catalyst for her therapeutic journey.

The turning point occurred when a friend, inquiring about Ripa’s well-being, prompted unexpected tears. Reflecting on this emotional moment, Ripa humorously confessed, “I started sobbing, and I wasn’t entirely sure why.” Recognizing the need for assistance, her friend promptly recommended therapy.

For Ripa, therapy proved to be a profound voyage of self-discovery. She enthusiastically shared, “I really got to know myself” and unveiled her struggles with embracing success, a revelation that forms a cornerstone of her forthcoming memoir, “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.”

In the memoir, Ripa candidly exposes her daily battles with social anxiety, dispelling the misconception that her extroverted on-screen persona mirrors her off-screen reality. She disclosed, “People think that because I’m an extrovert on television, I am one in real life. Surprise! That’s why they call it acting.”
