Kelly Ripa spoke out on social networks after several days of absence from “Live with Kelly and Ryan”.
The longtime co-host, 50, has been away from the show for several days without much explanation, but fans were able to connect with her again this week.
Ripa took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a video of her two dogs on National Puppy Day, Hello magazine reported.
According to the outlet, the video was filmed at Ripa’s New York home.
On Wednesday, she posted to Instagram again, sharing a series of return photos to celebrate restaurant mogul Bruce Bozzi’s birthday.

Fans have noticed his absence and have taken note of it on social media.
“I was really looking forward to seeing my Queen Kelly Ripa this morning,” a fan tweeted on Monday.
“#KellyandRyan right now …” said another. “@KellyRipa please hurry back!”
A third wrote: “@KellyRipa you miss live Kelly and Ryan are enjoying your day, can’t wait for your back!”
It seems, however, that Ripa’s absence from the series is quite normal.

“Kelly takes time off each year at the end of March to spend time with her family,” an insider told HollywoodLife.
Ripa began her stint on “Live” in 2001 when she joined Regis Philbin and replaced Kathie Lee Gifford. She hosted with a large number of guest hosts for a while before Michael Strahan became a permanent host by her side. After a seemingly dramatic turn, Strahan left and Ryan Seacrest stepped in.
