Kelly Ripa has a confession to make, revealing that she’s gone under the knife for a little nip and tuck.
More interesting than the fact that she’s had plastic surgery is where she’s had it: her earlobes.
In a new video for the latest “Fashion Finder” segment on the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” Instagram page, the 49-year-old daytime host explained why she enlisted the services of a plastic surgeon to fix her lobes.
“I had gauges, like hanging gauges. See these holes up here,” says Ripa in the video, pointing to the diamond studs in her earlobes. “These were my earholes that tore all the way through. So I had to go to a plastic surgeon.”
Zooming in on her lobe, she added: “There’s a piece of my earlobe that’s not there because he had to sew it together.”
As Ripa explained, her love of hanging earrings eventually led both earlobes to tear right through, requiring cosmetic surgery to stitch them back together.
“This one really recovered very nicely. This one is perfect,” she said, pointing to her left ear, while admitting the other one “was just way worse. The damage was worse.”
