Hot news of a Kelly Ripa wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City reveals the "LIVE with Regis" creation is a spitting image of her.
She's bubbly, cute, and is a great partner in crime with co-host Regis Philbin on the popular morning show. And now the pint-sized star has aÂ doppleganger, sort of.
The fine folks at Madame Tussauds did a great job in creating the Kelly Ripa wax figure to compliment a Philbin double. C'mon; it wouldn't be in the spirit of the NYC not to have this moment in history sealed, right?
The Kelly Ripa wax figure is stunning, and is a spitting-image of Papa Philbin's co-host. For starters, her body-double has a red dress (duh), bling, and her blonde hair. Now if Madame Tussauds can somehow inject the bubbly sense of humor the star has.
The 40-year-old star of "LIVE" was a team-player; she posed alongside her Kelly Ripa wax figure for photos. She even strutted over to the Regis Philbin wax figure.
If the show doesn't find a replacement for Philbin soon, his doppelganger may have to be a stand-in. Regis announced this would be his last season on the show. Rumor has it that "American Idol's" Ryan Seacrest has an interest in filling the "man's" shoes. Good luck with that.
