Friday Funny: Kelly Ripa-s Anderson Cooper

When Kelly Ripa first came on the scene, she seemed a little too "perfect"—blonde, perky, tiny, yappy—and I wasn't too sure about her. (I may have been a tad bit jealous, I'll admit.) But, over the years, as she's been Regis' sidekick and held stints on TV and starred in commercials, she's grown on me. She's a mom, and she talks frankly about stress, her kids and her marriage. And although Ms. Ripa didn't start working out until recently (gasp!), she's now a poster child for the awesome things that fitness can do (look at those biceps!).

In the below video, Kelly shows off her new exercise moves to CNN anchor and Fit Bottomed Girls' crush, Anderson Cooper. Cooper is clearly uncomfortable, which bums me out a bit (have some fun with it, Coop!), but Kelly is awesome. She could have another career on her hands. See what you thinking by watching the video.

Isn't it refreshing to see a celebrity that admits to eating light and working out? I mean come on! It takes hard work to look that good!

LOL.........When she refered to Anderson as a "hostile participant," I couldn't stop smiling.

Thanks for sharing and the video had some great ideas for gaining a tight ass.

Poor Anderson...I couldn't bear to watch the whole thing. He's riped himself looking at the video and I think he's doing fine without the dancing hips thing.

This was a great video! Very entertaining and I agree with Lisa, includes some GREAT moves! I can't wait to try 'em out! I think I share FitBottomed Girl's sentiments about Kelly...she's absolutely grown on me, and I think it's awesome that she's become a fitness spokesperson! I really like how this video showcases how you can do so many moves at home, without any equipment and have fun!

Jen -- I totally agree! :)

And, I still love me some Anderson.
