Kelly Ripa admits Botox: 'It makes my makeup artist's life easier'

The "Live! with Kelly and Michael" host spoke with Elle Magazine to discuss her new co-host Michael Strahan, her marriage and family, and of course, her workout. What stuck out the most, though, was the host admitting to occasional Botox injections.

When discussing how she looked so flawless after a hard workout, the host mentioned sometimes getting Botox injections in her armpits to avoid sweating. That's not the only place she gets them, though. She also admitted to getting them in her face, saying, "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."

Ripa isn't the first celebrity to rely on Botox to try to defy her age and she certainly won't be the last. Hopefully, she doesn't become a cautionary tale of people who abuse the cosmetic procedure.
