Kelly Ripa Opens Up About Her Problems

Kelly Ripa, host of “Live with Kelly and Mark,” recently revealed her decision to start therapy at 40 after an emotional encounter at a bar mitzvah. A friend’s simple question about her well-being led to unexpected tears, prompting the recommendation of a therapist. Ripa enthusiastically shared, “I really got to know myself,” shedding light on her ongoing struggle with social anxiety disorder, a theme explored in her upcoming memoir, “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.”

In the memoir, Ripa dispels the misconception that her extroverted TV persona mirrors her real-life personality, stating, “People think that because I’m an extrovert on television, I am one in real life. Surprise! That’s why they call it acting.”

Ripa’s revelations extend beyond therapy, delving into broader emotional struggles. She candidly shares, “I cry in the shower. I cry myself to sleep. I cry backstage. Sometimes I feel like I can’t breathe.” These raw admissions showcase the pain she endures.

By sharing her vulnerabilities, Ripa aims to inspire others to seek help when needed, encouraging a greater understanding of mental well-being complexities. Her openness reinforces the message that seeking help is a courageous step towards healing and self-discovery.
