Kelly Ripa And Carrie Ann Inaba Try Blue Wine On “Live With Kelly” – WATCH VIDEO!
As Gossip Cop reported, Inaba joined Ripa as the guest co-host on Monday’s show, and on Tuesday’s broadcast, they caught up on how the “Dancing with the Stars” judge spent her night in Manhattan. Inaba explained that she intended to just have a quiet night since she had to be back in the morning, but “three bottles of champagne later…” Ripa quipped, “My kind of girl, that Carrie Ann Inaba!”
Ripa went on to share how, in her view, people on Long Island go “rose ballistic” in the summer, where a shortage means “they will cut someone for a bottle of rose.” But Inaba had never heard of that kind of wine before. That led Ripa to announce to the crew, “Guys, go into my dressing room. Seriously.”
Within moments she was handed a full bottle of Whispering Angel, and joked, “I like to say that if you have enough Whispering Angel, you turn into a screaming devil.” Ripa gifted the bottle to Inaba, and revealed she brought the topic up because of a news story that said the cool new drink is actually blue wine.
While it’s not available in the U.S., the talk show “went to great lengths” to snag some. And though it looked purple when Ripa poured, she hilariously cracked, “This is made from live Smurfs, everyone!” So, how did it taste? Check out the full video below!
