The soap opera vets attended a quinceañera together in Los Angeles over the weekend
Watch out, Kelly Ripa!
Ripa originally posted the photo on her Story and labeled where she was in the shot because her face could not be seen due to Gellar making her way to Consuelos, 52.
On Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, Ripa, who turned 53 on Monday, and her husband discussed going to Los Angeles for the party celebrating the 15th birthday of their friend Elsa Collins’ daughter Alessandra.
“We didn’t just go to a quinceañera, we went to the most fun quinceañera,” Ripa said.
Consuelos described the event as “so fun” and “really, really nice.”
“It was nice being at the quinceañera,” Ripa continued. “It was true L.A. event where I said, ‘Oh where are you having it?’ And she said, ‘At the house. We’re going to do up the backyard.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, well weather permitting’ and she said, ‘Weather is always permitting here. Weather permits.’”
The mom of three pointed out that if the party had taken place in New York City over the weekend, weather would have been a factor amid the flooding caused by the tropical storm that passed through the northeast.
“Can you imagine if that was an East Coast event?” Ripa asked. “That would have been inside and upstairs cause the first couple of floors would have flooded.”
Ripa shared that the couple's 26-year-old son Michael, who lives in Brooklyn, lost power due to the storm. She also said that friends checked in on her and Consuelos about whether the weather affected them, only to find out they were in Los Angeles.
“I was texting back, ‘We’re in LA.’ It’s funny how you go on being on people’s prayer lists to being immediately removed from the prayer lists,” Ripa said. “Then they’re irritated that you’re somehow not in the floods.”

“I'm so glad Sarah Michelle Gellar did not listen to me," Ripa said on a January episode of her morning talk show. "Because many years ago, when she was on All My Children and leaving, she said, 'I'm going out to California.' And I said, 'What? There's nothing in California. What are you talking about? You don't want to go out to California as a young starlet. What do you think? You think you're going to become a star? You're going to stay here where the work is! Theater! Television!'"
Ultimately, Gellar did not take Ripa’s advice.
"She was like, 'You're wrong,'" Ripa recounted. "And I'm so glad she didn't listen. She did it! She was like, 'Hold my beer, I'm going to go be a star.'"
