Kelly Ripa joined her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos on Riverdale and she is apparently already part of his work family! As you probably know, it was confirmed that the TV host would be appearing in the role of Hiram Lodge’s mistress.
It turns out that the Riverdale cast had a great time while shooting for her scenes, so they are all for her coming back!
Lili Reinhart who was in attendance at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards yesterday told ET that ‘She’s [Kelly Ripa] the best. She is such a warm and fun human to be around.’
As for Kelly’s character on Riverdale, Mrs. Mulwray, she is described as ‘confident and tough… she is a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that is much bigger than she initially realized.’
It seems like the Live with Kelly and Ryan star was on the set for a brief while, but Reinhart still hopes she’ll return, at least for the two of them to have a scene together.
‘I didn’t get to work with her, which is sad. Maybe we will see her more than once. I think she is going to be great, the part was really fun. I am excited to see how it turns out,’ the actress dished.
As for attending the Women of the Year Awards for the very first time, Reinhart told the outlet that she was really ‘honored.’
After all, it was meant to celebrate stars such a Chrissy Teigen and Viola Davis who have actually used their celeb status for more than following on social media.
Reinhart, who also delivered a speech about body positivity on stage there, said that ‘I think if you are vocal about what you are passionate about, then it deserves to be praised. I’m just happy to be here supporting other women who are vocal about important things.’
