Throwback Footage Shows Baby-Faced Kelly Ripa Trying To Get Her Big Break

Throwback Footage Shows Kelly Ripa.

Video of a baby-faced Kelly Ripa from 30 years ago has surfaced, from when she was on the long-forgotten TV show Dance Party USA.

Ripa was just a teenager from New Jersey trying to get her big break. In the video, she sported frizzy and big 80s-style hair, decades before she landed her gig on morning television.

The future of Live! With Kelly And Michael is hanging in the balance, with a source saying Ripa may never co-host the show again as long as Michael Strahan is sitting next to her following his announcement that he will be leaving in September for Good Morning America. 

"I don't believe that co-hosting together is a viable option anymore," a source told People magazine, adding: "Anything is possible."

She has reportedly gone "radio silent” and she has also supposedly failed to return Strahan's calls.

"The [show's] people are very nervous. They're flying blind. The longer she stays silent the more concerned they get,” the source told People magazine.
