KELLY RIPA IS PIN THIN

By ALAN BUTTERFIELD

Kelly Ripa has lost 10 pounds because of the pressure of juggling two hit TV shows, according to insiders.

Pals revealed that the 5ft 4in 34-year-old — who usually weighs in at 115lbs — is overwhelmed by her hectic schedule. She's doing double duty — working on Live With Regis And Kelly as well as her sitcom Hope And Faith.

The mother of three has the added pressure of working on her sitcom with real-life husband and former soap star Mark Consuelos. And to further add to Kelly's stress, Consuelos seems to want her to have another child.

A pal said: "Kelly's has been under tremendous strain the last few months. There have been rumors that Regis is going to be replaced and she had been worried about whether or not Hope and Faith was going to be renewed. Plus, her husband seems to be pressuring her to have another child.

"It's no wonder she has dropped several pounds. She barely has time to breathe, let alone eat.

"The burden on poor Kelly is starting to show," the pal added.

"She's ultra thin and every pound lost on her small frame shows. Hopefully, she'll try to pack on some pounds."
