Kelly Ripa Reveals She Successfully Quit Drinking: ‘It’s Amazing’

Kelly Ripa is officially living her life alcohol-free.

The “Live With Kelly And Ryan” host, 49, chatted with her co-host Ryan Seacrest during Monday morning’s episode about the downward spiral of wine sales in 2019.

Ripa joked that it was probably thanks to her.

“They’re saying that Americans bought less wine last year. It’s the first drop in a quarter of a century,” she said. “Now, I believe this is because I quit drinking, that I caused this dip. I have influenced the market.”

She added, “I’m not saying I’ve driven people [out of drinking alcohol], I’m saying I stopped buying wine and there’s a dip.”

And while she didn’t explain her reasoning behind her decision, she did reveal she decided to quit when Seacrest started hosting the show in 2017.
