On Monday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan star posted a sweet tribute to her former co-star on Instagram, featuring an old snap of the two women holding hands. “Remember holding hands like this… me neither,” she captioned the post. “Happy Birthday @InstaFaithFord, can’t wait to hold your hand again one day.”
In the pic, Ripa is wearing a red and pink floral, slim-cut tank dress featuring thick shoulder straps and a fitted bodice. She topped off the look with a pair of red pumps. Ford, on the other hand, looks stunning in a dark green blouse and matching skirt. And it’s clear, these ladies have not aged a bit.
By the looks of the post, the photograph was likely taken to promote the women’s television series Hope & Faith, which ran on ABC from 2003 to 2006. Ripa played Faith Fairfield, a soap opera star whose character is killed off, leading her to move in with her sister, Hope (Faith Ford), and her family in a fictional Cleveland suburb.
This isn’t the first photo the 49-year-old star has posted from her time on the series. In fact, back in July, she shared another throwback from the show featuring herself wearing...a hot dog costume. She captioned the post, "#Frank talk: Happy #nationalhotdogday you wieners!" Followed by exactly 12 hot dog emojis.
Seems like Ripa is missing her sitcom days, and her television-sister turned real-life BFF.
