WATER MILL, N.Y. (AP) — If Kelly Ripa has a preference for who will join her as the co-host of “Live! With Kelly,” she isn’t saying who it is.
Ripa said Saturday that naming a favorite candidate to join her on the morning talk show would be “like telling you who my favorite child is.”
Ripa spoke at a designer clothing sale to benefit ovarian cancer research in Water Mill, New York.
Organizers say the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance’s Super Saturday sale raised $3.4 million last year.
Ripa said the cause is dear to her heart because she lost a close family friend to ovarian cancer when she was growing up.
Ripa’s former co-host on “Live!” was retired NFL player Michael Strahan. Strahan left the syndicated show last spring for ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
