Kelly Ripa studied in Camden County College to pursue a degree in Psychology but later dropped out to chase her Hollywood dreams. The decision to drop out of college wasn’t an easy one, as Kelly had to prove herself to everyone before they gave her support. She landed the role of Hayley Vaughan on the soap opera, All My Children, and later on became a successful TV host of the morning talk show, Live! with Kelly and Ryan. After a number or trial and errors, her career started to see some success.

Ripa also went into TV production with her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, and established their own production company called Milojo. Everything after that was history and just stepping stones towards her incredible wealth. Ripa was dubbed as one of the Most Powerful People in Media in 2014 by The Hollywood Reporter. It is no surprise that she earns millions!
