Ripa admitted that she and 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' star get "mistaken for each other a lot" on Friday’s episode of 'Live with Kelly and Mark'
Judge, 56, agreed and revealed that she and Eddie, 50, were even mistaken for Ripa and Consuelos, both 52, while on a flight.
“I was on a plane from New York to Orange County, and this guy was in the very front seat,” she recalled. “The guy sat next to me — he was intoxicated, on the tarmac he had three more drinks, he’s spilling them on me. In the meantime, people are coming and asking for my picture. So he’s going, ‘Who are you?’ And I’m going, ‘Oh, I’m nobody, I’m nobody.’”
She continued, “And then I opened up my phone because I’m trying to ignore this guy, and there’s a picture of me and Eddie — Eddie had his shirt off, I was in a bathing suit. And he’s like, ‘That’s Mark Consuelos! You’re Kelly Ripa!’ And I did this,” she said as he smiled and nodded her head.
She concluded, “So I go up to the front and I say, ‘I can’t sit next to this guy. He’s so intoxicated.’ Next thing you know, security’s coming, they pull him off the plane and he’s yelling down the aisle, ‘This is your fault, Kelly Ripa! This is your fault!’”
Live with Kelly and Mark's official Instagram account also shared a photo of the couple’s together with the caption, “Who’s who? 😂”
Last month, the Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories author met another of her celebrity doppelgängers.
Becki Newton stopped by Live with Kelly and Mark and surprised Ripa by wearing the same pink dress as her. In a clip shared on the show’s Instagram, the talk show host joked that it was “mean” of her to do before they both broke into laughter and posed side-by-side in their matching looks.
During the interview, the 45-year-old Ugly Betty alum joked that “everyone says we look alike, but I just don’t see it.”
“People fantasize in their minds that I look like you," Ripa replied. "I know because I do it myself.”
Consuelos then asked if she stopped by people mistaking her for Ripa, she responded, “I get stopped more often as Kelly then as Becki so in that situation, I’m not sure what to do because I don’t want to let them down. This has happened where someone has come up and they’ll say, ‘Can I have your autograph? And of course I say yes.”
She shared, “Then, this one young lady walked away and said, ‘I just got Kelly Ripa’s autograph.’ I never know if I’m supposed to say, 'No, no, no,' because then that gets really disappointing. So, I just smile a lot and say, ‘Thank you so much.’”
The clip was captioned, “Can’t tell them apart 😂😂 #BeckiNewton”
