Ripa Confirms: No Return For Hayley And MateoBy SOD Posted: Jul 13, 2011
Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, will not be making a Pine Valley comeback before AMC takes its final bow on ABC in September. "We just can't be in California when they need us to be," she reports. "It's so upsetting, it really is. The good news is that we were there for the 40th anniversary [in January 2010]. We got to do our big good-bye scenes. It was a moment and it ended on a high note for us. It would be hard to recreate that anyway, but it's unfortunate because I really wanted to be a part of it."
