If anyone can do it, it’s Kelly Ripa! The host transformed into Alexander Hamilton for the Oct. 31 Halloween show of ‘Live with Kelly.’ Naturally she was joined by Matt Bomer and Jerry O’Connell, two men who have become regular co-hosts on her show. You have to watch this.
Everyone knew that Kelly Ripa would go all out, but no one knew just how far she’d go — and this time, she made fun of just that. In an epic opening number, she dressed up as Alexander Hamilton and was joined by tons of dancers, and frequent co-hosts, Matt Bomer and Jerry O’Connell. Together, they sang about everything she’d done — and how there was much much more coming!
“Well the word got around, they said this girl is insane man, looks just like a lady but can look just like a hot man,” Matt rapped. “Got her education from the soaps in which she came, when the world knows you run this game. What’s the game?” To that, she responded with “My game is Kelly Ripa Halloween, and there’s a million wigs I’ve never worn, but just you wait!”
And that was an understatement. Throughout the show, Jerry stuck by her side during skits mocking Beyonce‘s Lemonade video, Negan’s killing scene from The Walking Dead (yes, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan making a cameo), and a Live in Paradise skit. Of course, all of her possible future cohosts were there, fighting for her love. Even her hubby, Mark Consuelos showed up to remind everyone that no one is getting “wet and wild” in paradise with his lady!
Regardless, the pair weren’t the first to rock the Hamilton look. The musical, which was the break out show of the year that everyone is talking about, was also focused on during Good Morning America right before Live; Lara Spencer took on the presidential look too, and did an epic rap. We cannot get enough of this.
