She included the photo below, in which she’s reportedly seen on the “Riverdale” set. Ripa will appear on the show as Mrs. Mulwray.
ETOnline quotes a character description for the role that reads: “”Confident and tough… she’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”
The report adds: “The ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ host will actually be the third member of her family to join the show. Ripa and Consuelos’ 18-year-old son, Michael, is set to appear in [tonight’s] flashback episode, playing a younger version of Hiram.”
