On Wednesday, the producers of the morning show shared their daily clip of the 50-year-old actress and the 45-year-old American Idol alum leaving their dressing rooms and making their way to start filming. In the hallway, the TV personality repeatedly told Seacrest that something wasn’t “her fault,” although the clip did not provide context on what she was referring to.
After the duo took their seats on stage, Ripa began by introducing the date. “It is Wednesday, February 17th, 2021,” Ripa says in the video. “Although the cue cards make it look like it's 2024.” In reference to nearly reading the wrong number, again she adds, “It’s not my fault,” to which Seacrest jokingly replies, “We should know the year.”
