Kelly Ripa Shows Off Gray Hair and Jokes She's on 'Roots Watch'


Hair comes trouble with Kelly Ripa.

The “Live with Kelly” host gave fans an update on how she is doing as the whole world is in isolation due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Root watch week one,” she captioned a photo on her Instagram Story — a close-up that showed the roots of her hair coming in a little grey.

This isn't the first time Ripa has turned to humor amid growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

The host recently took to her Instagram Story to document her Botox injections, during which she jokingly addressed a "very serious medical problem going around right now."

While it seemed as though she might be alluding to COVID-19, her doctor, Robert Anolik, chimed in playfully that the medical issue was "botox deficiency."

"A lot of side effects. Lines, wrinkles," he joked.

Ripa then made a comment about the doctor keeping a safe distance and not touching her per the CDC's guidelines to try to contain the virus.

"You know, I appreciate how germ nervous you are because we all are," she quips before he assures her he's "following the CDC rules."

The post came after her daytime talk show started to broadcast without a studio audience, joining the ranks of programs including including "The View," "Good Morning America," "Jeopardy," and "Wheel of Fortune."
