Kelly Ripa & Ryan Seacrest Open Up About Emotional Last Day Together: ‘I’ve Been In Denial’

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are opening up about their emotional last day together. “I’ve been in denial,” Kelly told Access Hollywood. Ryan announced he was stepping away from the show after six years in February and the pair reflected on their friendship as they wrapped their final show together. “I think the thing we give to each other or take away from each other is that we have enormous pride in one another, and we really have been each other’s champions and cheerleaders since before this process … and even more so through this process,” Kelly gushed.
