Having just finished the book Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories, I thought it would be a good idea to write a short summary of the book. I hope that this will give you a flavour of what this book is all about, and help you decide whether you want to read it.
About Kelly Ripa
Whether you are a fan of the show or not, there’s no denying that Kelly Ripa is a talented and honest actress and television personality. She has been working in the industry for more than two decades and is known for her role on the popular daytime talk show Live. She has won several awards, including six Daytime Entertainment Emmy(r) Awards, and is considered one of the best comedians in the industry.
In her new memoir, Live Wire: Long-Winged Short Stories, Ripa opens up about her life. She talks about her life as a mother and how she copes with her empty nest. She also touches on topics that many working mothers struggle with. She shares her philosophy on aging. She also shares her thoughts on what it’s like to be a celebrity.
Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, have three children. Two are teenagers, and the youngest is a sophomore at the University of Michigan. They have been married for 26 years.
Kelly Ripa has a rich and diverse background. She started her career as an actress, and has worked in several different fields. She has appeared on soap operas, such as All My Children, and has starred in three seasons of Hope & Faith. She is also known for her work on comedy shows, such as Broad City and Saturday Night Live. She has also been a co-host on the Today show and the Today show’s spinoff, Good Morning America.

The first story
Besides being one of the sexiest ladies on the block, Kelly Ripa was also the smartest amongst her ilk. Luckily for us, she is no stranger to the good graces of her hubby, Mark Consuelos. As a duo they’ve gotten by the knuckles over the years and still look good in the buff.
The good news is that Ripa is still around to share tales of the past with her three children. The sexiest lady isn’t for long, but she sure as hell isn’t the only one in this household. Hopefully this will be the case in the coming years.
The second story
Having been in show business for nearly three decades, Kelly Ripa is more than just a talk show host. She has racked up an impressive list of accolades, including two Emmy Awards, three Emmy nominations, and a Hollywood award for her contributions to the screen. In fact, she is the only person in Hollywood to have appeared on every television show. Amongst her many TV and film credits, Ripa is probably most recognized for her stint as the anchor of ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’. She later branched out and hosted ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ when Ryan Seacrest joined the show.
Despite her busy schedule, she found time to pen a few short-form riffs on her experiences and observations over the years. She may never be able to recover from all the hours spent at her desk, but at least she had something to show for it. In a recent interview, she was asked about her accomplishments and she responded with something she called the Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories. The book contains 14 short-form essays, which are about the same as their title character. In addition to a plethora of tidbits, the book also features a few NSFW (not safe for work) stories.
The book is an entertaining and insightful read, revealing the grittier side of Hollywood, as well as the ups and downs of being a woman in show business. In the book, Ripa shares the inside scoop on how she landed her first major role in Hollywood, and what life is like to be a mom of three. There is also a surprisingly enlightening section about the ins and outs of negotiating with co-workers, including some very amusing and off-color stories about her own mishaps and misadventures.
The third story
NBC talk show host and TV producer Kelly Ripa recently released her first book, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories. The book features 14 short essays written by Ripa, including one about the aging medela, a sassy sex story, and a clever little tale of two guys. These short stories cover a wide range of topics, from Kelly’s love of Regis Philbin to her marriage to Mark Consuelos. It’s a fun read that’s definitely worth a gander.
Kelly Ripa was also interviewed by Shondaland, a media network owned by Shonda Rhimes, about her writing and the book’s impressive credentials. She told us that the ‘Long-Winded Short Stories’ book is one of the most fun things she’s ever done. She says she wrote the book as a way to share her thoughts on a wide range of topics, from her love of Regis Philbin to her 26-year marriage to Mark Consuelos.
The fourth story
Whether you are a fan of the daytime talk show, Kelly Ripa, or not, it is impossible to ignore her sharp wit and relatability. After all, she has been in show business for 30 years and has won numerous accolades. Now, she has taken her expertise and experience to the page with her debut book, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.
Kelly Ripa shares her wisdom on aging, negotiating work with men, and how to thrive in a male-dominated workplace. Her writing style is as sharp as her wit, and her ability to make readers feel like they are hanging out with friends is evident throughout her book. She also reveals her story about how she met her husband, Mark Consuelos, and discusses her relationship with Regis Philbin.
Kelly Ripa is also the recipient of the Excellence in Media Award from GLAAD and the Woman of the Year Award from Glamour. She was also named to the Women in Entertainment Power 100 list. In addition, Ripa has three children, including a son from her first marriage, and a daughter from her second marriage.
