Is Kelly Ripa Retiring? Leaving The Daytime Show
Rumors about Kelly Ripa leaving The Daytime Show started surfacing because of her three weeks' absence on the show.
The last time similar rumors surfaced was following the pandemic. ABC had decided to broadcast old episodes with Kelly and Ryan in 2020 because of covid restrictions.
As a result, fans speculated that the duo may have left the show due to covid issues. That was not the case, as the iconic duo resumed hosting the show from their show.
After a long absence, Ripas' fans have been wondering if she intends to retire from hosting the show entirely.
Neither Kelly nor ABC has stated in response to this inquiry. Despite her absence, she is still a part of the show. Her absence could be due to personal matters.
