Kelly Ripa Breaks Her Foot During Dance Class

There is no stopping Kelly Ripa from doing her job, not even some broken bones. On Thursday morning, Ripa stumbled across the stage in crutches and a boot before taking her seat with co-host Michael Strahan on "Live! With Kelly and Michael." Who's the culprit you ask? A free weight that was left on the floor during her dance class.

"I was in a dance class which I typically, usually am, and somebody had left a weight on the floor," Ripa told the audience. "All I know is, I did a jump — and in my mind I am an incredible dancer as graceful as can be — and I landed on the weight and my foot went over and under the weight. It sounded like bubble wrap."

Actress Rachel Harris who was in the class with her asked if Ripa needed an ambulance. To avoid any chances of being seen on the evening news, Ripa crawled her way out of the class and went to her doctor. Although four bones broke, she luckily didn't need surgery. However, she found out that her bones are closer together than normal, which may have caused the tumble.

True to her style-maven ways, Ripa refuses to wear her boot for six weeks straight. "There's a special shoe that you wear with your boot, but I am not wearing that. I don't plan on being in this [boot] for that long."

Her husband Mark Consuelos seemed to get a kick of out Kelly's "suffering," recording a video of her using the wheelchair elevator at the hospital. We hope that Kelly feels better, but we don't think she has anything to worry about—she still looks fabulous, even with the crutches and boot.
