(AP) — From her childhood in Berlin, New Jersey
, to her marriage to actor-producer Mark Consuelos
, Kelly Ripa
has a lot to talk about outside of her job as the host of “Live With Kelly and Ryan.”
Ripa's essay collection "Live Wire" will be published next year by Dey Street Books
, a HarperCollins Publishers imprint.
According to Dey Street, the book will reveal what "really makes her tick" as she writes about marriage, motherhood
, and her career in show business
, including her work
on "All My Children
," on which both she and Consuelos appeared.
“Whether recounting how she and Mark actually met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride
follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment), Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners,” the publisher stated.
“Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless, and always with a sense of humor
, ‘Live Wire’ shows Kelly as she truly is offscreen — a very wise woman with something to say.”
