Kelly Ripa hilariously shuts down “Live” audience hecklers on air: 'Stop!'

She'll gladly indulge foot massages and her husband's slim-fitting wrestling singlets first thing in the morning, but one thing Kelly Ripa does not have time for in the wee hours is audience hecklers.

The longtime cohost playfully hit back at a group of guests in the crowd during Monday's Live With Kelly & Mark broadcast, after the attendees hooted and hollered during the pair's opening chat.

"You know what tonight is, right? Tonight is Monday night. Do you know what happens on Monday night? There's football on Monday night!" Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, said, referencing the evening's impending matchup between his beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Ripa's favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

As Consuelos tried to push on with the discussion, a handful of pigskin-loving crowd members began shouting unintelligible phrases at the cohosts, before Ripa turned to them and shouted, "Stop!" before laughing the moment off.

Consuelos then gifted Ripa a Buccaneers jersey quarterback signed by Baker Mayfield, causing Ripa to crack that she "cannot possibly be seen" in the shirt. Consuelos turned to an off-camera crew member — and fellow Buccaneers fan — to make a bet with her: If the Eagles lose, Ripa must wear the Buccaneers jersey during tomorrow's telecast.

Tune in to see if Ripa will be repping the Buccaneers when Live returns tomorrow morning. Check your local listings for showtimes in your area.
