During Wednesday's Live With Kelly, the 46-year-old talk show host opened up about her love for the online pinboard, before recalling the moment it all went south: when she stumbled upon old photos of herself.
"I signed up for Pinterest because I like to get pictures of haircuts," she said. "Last night, something popped up for me, and it was me. I didn't ask for it, because my Pinterest...my name for Pinterest isn't...'Kelly Ripa.' They were suggesting to me that I should try my haircut! So I decided to click on 'Kelly Ripa' to see what is going on out there in the Kelly Ripa Pinterest pages."
"All nudes," joked guest co-host Jerry O'Connell.
"Don't applaud that! You clearly have never seen me nude," Ripa cracked. "What it is is, it's basically a walk down memory lane and it was so depressing. It was so depressing."
"I kept showing [husband] Mark [Consuelos], 'Look at me here, look at how young I am, look at our kids, look how tiny they are, look how good my hair was. Look at my good outfit,'" she recalled, before admitting that Consuelos knocked some sense into her.
"He goes, 'You hated the way you looked then, you hated your hair.' Basically, it was a lesson because every picture I showed him, I was like, 'Look how much better I looked then,'" she shared.
"He was like, 'Here's the thing. You need to stop with the vanity because next week, a picture of you from today, you'll say, 'Look how much better I was then,''' she added. "He's like, 'Get off that Pinterest page and block whatever that is.'"
