In Kelly Ripa's first book, "Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories," she writes about her long marriage to Mark Consuelos, their kids, and her decades spent as co-host of "Live."
The result is a collection of essays that reads like Ripa is next to you telling you these stories one-on-one.
Kelly Ripa said the book gave her an opportunity to have some fun at her own expense, and she realized that, "you can't die from embarrassment or humiliation. You can't. It will not kill you, and humiliation is good when you use it as a learning tool."
Entertainment reporter Sandy Kenyon told her that he really enjoyed her book so much and wondered what she'd learned from the experience of writing it.
"What do you know now that you didn't know before you wrote it?" he asked.
