Kelly Ripa, Lindsay FerrierWell, I did it.

I met Kelly Ripa.

I walked the catwalk at the Electrolux Rumpled to Runway Fashion Show to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

I didn't fall ...

And as far as I know, no one saw my Spanx.

I'll tell you more about the show once I pull together all the pictures and video. The whole thing was topnotch and I have lots of great insider stories to share with you.

But first, I'm going to let you in on a little secret Kelly Ripa shared with the audience yesterday that will BLOW YOUR MIND.

I mean, seriously. It may change the way you look at tiny female celebrities FOREVER.

One of the very first things Kelly Ripa announced when she took to the stage was that she was wearing Spanx.

Kelly Ripa.


The mind boggles.

As you can tell from the photo, Kelly is a little pixie of a woman. She needs Spanx like a 20-year-old needs Botox injections.

However, honestly, the news makes me like her even more. She's a mom like the rest of us -- and as tiny as she is, she still wants a smooth foundation under that body-hugging dress. Nobody's perfect -- not even the beautiful and teeny Kelly Ripa.

In fact, I was talking with a stylist friend while I was in New York and she says every celebrity you see on the red carpet is wearing Spanx, whether she weighs 100 pounds or 150. Some of them even layer on two or three pairs for extra coverage! I wish I'd known this a few years ago, when I was afraid that buying Spanx was basically admitting to the world ("the world" being the woman behind the Dillard's counter) that I had serious figure flaws.

I don't think we have to have shapewear to look good.

But I'm sure glad it's available!

What do you think about Kelly Ripa's revelation? Are you as surprised as I was?
