LIVE guest host Carson Kressley has suffered a wardrobe malfunction live on air while filling in for an absent Kelly Ripa.
As part of Live with Kelly and Ryan’s fitness-centric The Best Me in ’23 segment, hosts Ryan Seacrest and Carson worked with physical therapist and strength coach Jeff Cavaliere.
Before the workout, Ryan pointed out Carson’s “puffer” sweatpants, which his co-host commented “made him look skinny.”
The hosts hit the floor and started working on stretches with Jeff, which prompted Ryan to make a funny remark.
“I hear a lot of popping going on back there,” Ryan joked during the exercise session.
“Oh, it’s just my pants and my jewelry, sorry!” Carson replied with a huge grin on his face.
The next fitness move required everyone to turn over on their stomachs.
Ryan and Carson followed their instructor and went through a few other poses and stretches.
Carson continued to work through his earlier wardrobe malfunction even through the somewhat difficult moves.
The host looked no worse for the wear after completing the grueling session.

While Carson took over Kelly’s hosting duties on Wednesday, the 52-year-old took some much-needed time to recover.
Kelly has been sick for the past week, suffering from a mystery illness that her doctor called a “random” bug.
The host shared a new selfie that demonstrated just how bad she felt.
“Day six of nothing wrong with me,” she captioned a photo she shared to Instagram.
Before taking some time to herself, Kelly had been attending work, which fans had taken issue with.
However, now that Kelly has been able to go home and rest her voice (and the rest of her, too), she should be able to get back to it soon enough.
Fans sent Kelly an outpouring of support, happy that she was able to recover from the illness that had been plaguing her for so long.
Though Kelly originally tried to come back to host on Monday, she soon admitted to viewers that she “came back too soon.”
The 52-year-old missed out on her hosting duties the previous Friday.
By Monday, she had returned to her post alongside co-host Ryan Seacrest.
She kicked off the show, announcing that she was still not feeling well.
“It’s Monday, January 9, 2023. I have a throat lozenge in my mouth,” she stated.
Ryan showed empathy as her co-host and told the audience that his partner was “going through it.”
“Came back too soon,” Kelly agreed.
Ryan offered to do the show alone while Kelly could sit in the audience.
Kelly declined, but joked that she would instead “watch” the show right beside him .
