In a video posted on the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” Instagram page, Kelly Ripa shared that she had to visit a plastic surgeon to fix her earlobes. As she showed off her multiple piercings, she revealed that she had pierced her ears with a needle and an apple when she was younger. After years of wearing heavy earrings, her earlobes couldn’t take the strain anymore. Ripa pointed out the gauges on her lobes and said, “These were my ear holes that tore all the way through. And so I had to go to a plastic surgeon. My two earlobes are now very different.”
As the cameras zoomed in for a close-up of Ripa’s right ear, she pointed out that a piece of her earlobe was missing because the plastic surgeon had to sew up the torn lobes. She showed off her left ear, which had healed nicely, and told the cameras, “I have two different earlobes.” Although that was the extent of her plastic surgery at the time, Ripa has joked about getting more nips and tucks on other body parts.
