Ryan Seacrest Had a Special Guest Co-Host on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Today

When we woke up this morning, we were totally expecting to see our two favorite co-hosts, Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa, spearheading today’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. However, it seems like Seacrest was joined by a special guest host instead: Ali Wentworth.

On Wednesday, producers of the hit morning show shared their daily behind-the-scenes clip. Announcer Deja Vu kicked off the clip by introducing the 45-year-old star and In Living Color actress. Then, the duo could be seen making their way to their seats which, as of yesterday, are no longer six feet apart.

“Good to see you,” Seacrest says in the footage. “Today is Wednesday, June 2. Kelly has college commitments with Joaquin today so filling in is the lovely, talented and always smiling Ali Wentworth.”

During the show, the hosting duo got a chance to speak with actress Julianne Moore about her new movie Lisey’s Story, as well as Good Housekeeping’s Meaghan Murphy who shared some outdoor summer cleaning hacks.

And while we missed seeing Ripa on our TV screens, we actually really enjoyed 56-year-old Wentworth’s presence. In fact, many followers even voiced their appreciation in the comments section on Instagram. One user commented on the post, writing, “Ali Wentworth!! What a nice surprise to see her,” while another fan added, “I love her I laugh so hard when she is co-hosting with Ryan.”

This isn’t the first time Wentworth has sat in for Ripa. The last time we saw the actress on the show was back in January for one of the first episodes of 2021.

Good to have you back, Ali.
