Kelly Ripa Has a Dream Guest in Mind for Her Podcast Series

Ever since daytime talk show host Kelly Ripa, 52, launched her podcast series, Let's Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, she has been sitting down and talking to some of the biggest names in Hollywood, from actress Nia Long to Matthew McConaughey. However, if she had a chance to pick a dream guest to interview, Ripa already has one celeb in mind.

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the mother of three discussed her new podcast series, where she has deeper convos with celebs. When asked about her dream guest to have on the show, Ripa simply answered: Madonna.

“We made our pitch, we’ve shot our shot,” Ripa teased. “We’ll see what happens. I mean, she’s a little busy right now working on the tour.” Even though an interview with the famous singer hasn’t been confirmed, the Live with Kelly and Mark co-host is still keeping her fingers crossed.

Back in March 2023, Ripa released the first episode of her podcast, where fans got a chance to listen to a candid conversation between her and her husband, Mark Consuelos. In the episode, Ripa and the Riverdale alum, 52, reflected on their marriage.

At one point, Consuelos shared that the secret to a successful relationship all comes down to communication. “I’m a lifer. I want to be married forever,” the All My Children alum said. “But I think that once the distraction leaves, you are left with two people in the house.”

Ripa also shared that their relationship is like a “heartbeat” because of their ups and downs.
