Bright, cheery, perky. These are all words we would use to describe Kelly Ripa, the 42-year-old Stratford, New Jersey native who’s positively adored by legions of morning show viewers across America.

In an extensive February issue interview with Elle, the co-host of her own namesake Live! Show spills her secrets – on the longevity of her marriage to her husband Mark Consuelos, whose name she has tattooed on her wrist, and the challenges she faces with staying relevant in the media industry.

And although she hasn’t gone under the knife, per se, leave it to Kelly to be open and honest about her youthful glow. The personality confesses she uses Botox, the age-defying formula that women (and men) injection into their faces and other body parts to remove fine lines, wrinkles and more. Ripa shares with Elle that she does, in fact, receive routine injections in her face, and even under her armpits to avoid sweating!

She tells the publication, "Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now."

And that rocking bod? Ripa apparently kicks major behind in the cycling studio. Self-deprecating, droll and amiable as always. Is there any wrong Kelly Ripa could do?
