Ryan Seacrest Was Joined By a Surprise Former Co-Host on ‘Live with Kelly & Ryan’ Today

While Kelly Ripa had a well-deserved day off, thus was MIA from today’s today’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Seacrest was accompanied by a special guest co-host who likely looks familiar.

The talk show host was joined by none other than actor and comedian Ali Wentworth. In a video clip (posted to the show’s official IG page), announcer Deja Vu introduced the hosts to viewers.

Wentworth donned a red and blue floral blouse with a black skirt and pointed heeled shoes to match. Meanwhile, Seacrest wore a burgundy blazer/pants ensemble with a white, button-down shirt and black Oxford dress shoes.

Fans couldn’t stop talking about Wentworth’s surprise appearance on Live today. “Love love Ali!!!!” one viewer wrote in the comments section. Another added, “Always love when she is on the show [red heart emoji].”

This isn’t the first time she has filled in for Ripa on Live. For example, last November, the It’s Complicated alum served as a guest host on the morning show. At the time, she rocked a pair of black pants and a burgundy top that had a tie-up accessory (a similar top can be found here). Seacrest stood beside her wearing a dark navy blue checkered suit with a white buttoned shirt open at the color.

The two had been joined by musician and television personality Jon Batiste. During his appearance, the LA-born singer performed his latest single “Boyhood.” He rocked a yellow and purple varsity jersey with a white shirt and black/white colored trousers.

Great to see you again, Ali.
