Kelly Ripa is one of the most popular figures on the morning or daytime television. She currently stars alongside Ryan Seacrest on the talk show “Live With Kelly And Ryan.”

According to The Richest, Ripa’s net worth is estimated at $75 million. The bulk of her wealth comes from her yearly talk show salary, which is estimated at $18 million. As of 2017, Ripa’s salary was expected to increase by up to $20 million.

But before appearing on the daytime talk show, Ripa has already been in the industry for almost 30 decades. In 1990, she starred in “All My Children” as Hayley Vaughan. Ripa starred on the show for 12 years, and that was also where she met her husband, Mark Consuelos.

After appearing on “All My Children” for several years, Ripa also starred in other television shows like “Hope & Faith,” “Dance Party USA,” “Ed,” “Homemade Millionaire” and more. Ripa also starred on the big screen in movies such as “Marvin’s Room,” “The Stand-In,” “Cheaper By The Dozen” and others.

Ripa gained more popularity back in 2001, when she started working as a daytime talk show host by co-hosting on “Live! With Regis And Kelly.” At that time, Ripa replaced Kathie Lee Gifford, who had been on the show for a couple of years.

Ten years later, Regis Philbin announced that he will be leaving the show and retiring at the age of 80. The title of the daytime talk show became “Live! With Kelly” until Michael Strahan was tired to co-host with her.

Shortly after, Strahan announced his decision to leave the show to host on “Good Morning America.” Rumors swirled that Ripa was so upset at her co-host that she found it hard to work with him. Strahan departed from Live! With Kelly and Michael four months earlier than scheduled.

At present, Ripa is hosting the daytime talk show with the “American Idol” host Seacrest. Since she has been hosting a daytime talk show for years, she is believed to have amassed great wealth. Ripa also serves as a spokesperson for brands like Tide, Pantene, Electrolux and more, which gives her a huge sum of money.
