Agree with all the above posts about Kelly and Mark thinking they are above it all and to hell with anyone that dare question them and call them on their bull$#it. I've only seen a few minutes of this mess since it happened but I do remember her saying she's' dipping into Lola's closet for wardrobe, she has Lola doing her make-up and looking back now, how funny is it when they first started how secretive they were with the remote location. Remember how it looked like a broom closet and we couldn't' figure out why? Well now we know they didn't want her astute viewers to say, "where are they?? that's' not her NYC apt., that's not the Hampton mansion."
Here's' what's always bugged me about Kelly. She gives her audience nothing.....nothing....about anything personal. This based on a show that was built on personal stories and sharing about personal things Regis and Kathie Lee did on a daily basis. From the very start of her tenure on the show, she just sat and smiled and agreed with Regis and she's never changed. She's now Ryan's 'potted plant' and just window dresses the set and smiles, agrees, stutters, but never, never shares anything about her personal situation.
How interesting a story would it have been to say, "omg, we had a family vaca planned, my parents, (insert funny stories about her mom) Mark's parents (insert funny stories about Mark's mom) and then the quarantine hit....my kids are driving me crazy,' whatever.....but no, she sits there and 'pretends' she's in NY....'pretends' to always be one of us when, thank God, she's nothing like one of 'us.'
It's her fakeness and phoniness that I find so offensive, the fact that she justs gives her audience the middle finger day in and day out and continues to be the pompous little fake that she is.
