Kelly Ripa Trashes ‘The Bachelorette’

May 14, 2019  •  Post A Comment

Even though Kelly Ripa’s show and the ABC dating competition “The Bachelorette” air on the same network, the co-host of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” is apparently not a fan.

The New York Post’s Page Six quotes Ripa saying on her show this morning: “You guys know how I feel about the show … it disgusts me.”

Her announcement came after her co-host Ryan Seacrest mentioned that current bachelorette Hannah Brown will be a guest on “Live” this week.

Ripa then restated her complaint about “The Bachelor,” declaring: “I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. … We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”

She added that it was a “gross, gross show.”




  1. Technically, Ripa’s show is not on ABC. While shot at a ABC facility, it is a syndicated show. Yes, it appears on many ABC affiliates, but it is not distributed via the ABC network.

  2. It is owned by WABC-so yes it is owned by ABC and distributed by an arm of ABC!

    • Don’t know what Mr. Video is is talking The show is syndicated by Disney ABC Home Entertainment and Distribution. Which is owned by ABC. That division distributes the show on ABC O&O’s along with their affiliates.

      He may need to change his name.

  3. I agree with her about this show. It’s women fighting over one man… Personally I hate it when a man kissing all those women it’s disgusting !!!! Personlly how do you know what charcter is in woman or women , if this person has mental problem or the show would make a person goes overwhelmingly l. …
    disgusting to me…
