‘Jersey’ Girl Kelly Ripa Has Something Surprising in Common with Teresa Giudice

Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper were the guests on Monday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” where Ripa, who hails from New Jersey, gabbed about the “Real Housewives.”

When the “Jersey” tawk turned to Teresa Giudice‘s refusal to utter the word “jail” on this week’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” instead simply saying her husband Joe has “gone away,” Ripa revealed some of her own relatives have also “gone away.” Watch the clip above.

Later in the show, Cohen put Ripa on the spot during “Plead the Fifth” asking which “Live!” guest host she liked better: Cohen or Cooper (who were both sitting right next to her). He also demanded to know the one thing she misses the LEAST about former co-host Regis Philbin. Watch Her Answers Below.
