An instant New York Times bestseller from Kelly Ripa—a sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

In Live Wire, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.

Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.

    Kelly Ripa is so entertaining on tv it’s no wonder she would be just as entertaining in her book!! I enjoyed every second of Live Wire, my only disappointment was when it ended, I wanted to read more! Great job!

    I loved it from start to finish🫶
  • Typical Kelly Bragging !

    By "ra,d
    Very confusing at times. Jumped all over the place. Her bragging gets old quick . You will get tired of her talking about Marks great looks and hers. She comes across as a insecure person who needs to have constant attention . The book was a waste of money. It’s her and Mark telling each other how beautiful they are. Mark has the little man syndrome !
  • Loved this book!

    I have never read a celebrity memoir, book of essays or any other genre. I have always liked Kelly Ripa and to be honest chose this because I didn’t have anything on my queue that caught my eye! I am so glad that I did. This was an example of how everyone should write. She was honest, funny, detailed, self deprecating, petty and heartfelt all at once. It was extremely relatable and entertaining while also containing a few great name drops. A must read for sure!
  • Delightful!

    Delightful and hilarious just like Kelly Ripa herself! I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a book!
  • Worth it!

    Fun and enjoyable read. However, if you watch Live with Kelly and Ryan you will have heard many of the stories.....But, I'm glad I purchased the book.
