Kelly Ripa Sporting A New Pair Of Crutches

Kelly Ripa Mark Consuelos red carpet

Kelly Ripa explained her crutches to the members of the "Live with Regis and Kelly" audience yesterday.

Kelly shared that she had been suffering pain for a few weeks and thought she had torn a muscle, but it turned out to be a stress fracture in the femoral neck of her right hip.  Kelly said ""It looks much worse than it is."

She's been banned from the gym and all other forms of exercise for 3-6 weeks, which for an avid exerciser like Kelly is going to be a tough order to follow.
