Kelly Ripa will release her first book, titled ‘Live Wire,’ in 2022. Described as a book of Ripa’s personal essays, Live Wire has the 50-year-old Ripa exploring “childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career, and the intersection of all the above — putting her thoughtfulness, assertiveness and deep understanding of the dynamics of gender and power on full display.”
The ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ co-host — who shares sons Michael, 24, and Joaquin, 18, and daughter Lola, 20, with husband Mark Consuelos — will show readers “what really makes her tick.” A book description reads: “As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment.) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”
Live Wire is available for pre-order now.
