New Jersey native Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, ALL MY CHILDREN) is returning to her roots! The LIVE! WITH REGIS & KELLY host will be appearing on the Sunday, August 28, episode of JERSEYLICIOUS, The Style Network’s top hit series.
After constant hounding and pitching by The Gatsby Salon’s resident “Queen Of Tease,” Tracy DiMarco, Ripa finally gives in and agrees to shoot a how-to segment at the salon for her morning talk show. (The segment aired as part of the Regis And Kelly Do It Week in July.) While working as a stylist at the Gatsby, Ripa got a refresher course in how to do the Jersey girl tease, smoky eye and spray tan. Tracy is beyond ecstatic, but she butts heads with Gatsby owner Gayle, who thinks she should be on camera since it is her salon! While Gayle and Tracy try to come up with a solution, Gayle is freaking out at the mere fact that Kelly Ripa is going to be in salon! She tries to get the stylists on their best behavior — but we all know that is nearly impossible. It is New Jersey, after all!
How did Ripa do during her mini-career as a hairdresser? Catch a sneak peek of the episode with the clip below, then tune in to JERSEYLICIOUS on The Style Network on Sunday, August 28, at 8 p.m. EST/PST!
