Some people - even many on The Hollywood Gossip staff - don't understand our affection for Kelly Ripa.
Granted, she's underweight. But we're not talking about Kate Bosworth levels here; Regis' sidekick just needs to eat a few more cinnamon buns here and there.
Overall, Ripa is bubbly, pretty and puts her family first. That's why you can count this blogger, at least, as one who's excited about the rumors of her life becoming a sitcom.
The actress and talk show host is developing a pilot for the CW network based on her children and occupations. She and hubby Mark Consuelos met on the soap opera All My Children, while their trials and tribulations together are constant fodder for chat and chiding by Philbin every morning.
Of course, Ripa's last sitcome - Hope and Faith - made Mischa Barton on The OC seem entertaining. But we believe in Kelly.
If Kevin Federline gets to be on TV just once, Ripa deservs multiple appearances.
