Kelly Ripa Jokes About Crutches: Stress Fracture Sidelines TV Host from Workouts
Dec 8, 2010
Kelly Ripa is on crutches and playing injured. The TV host hobbled to her job this week after doctors discovered a stress fracture in her hip that will keep the work out addict on the sidelines and out of the gym for 3-6 weeks.
The hard body blonde joked about her condition on the Regis and Kelly Show on Monday.
According to the USA Today, Ripa had been having pain for several weeks and thought she had a torn muscle.
So she went to see a doctor, but an X-ray showed there was nothing wrong.
"I was just there for the painkillers, let's face it!" she joked.
Unfortunately, the doctors discovered the fracture and told her she would have to rest.
"So that means no exercise for three to six weeks," Ripa, said. "Right away I was like, 'What?! There must be a mistake!'"
But, she added, "I don't need any surgery, I don't need anything special done. I just have to sit down."
