I don't think so because I seen her an Russell Westbrook next to each other and she was at his shoulders and he's 6'3

Barefoot with Shaq is an amazing shot. Downgrade needed.

So we are to believe that Anna Kendrick is bigger than Kelly Ripa? -Not. Look at them together Kelly noticably bigger.
Brad said on 27/Aug/14
Never seen 5' 2" in her life.
Sarah said on 25/Aug/14
Good listing. She's a strong 5'2", maybe 5'2.5" in the morning.

5'2.5'' is *not* "super tiny" ... it's only 1 standard deviation from the norm, at least in the US and most of Europe. Constitutional short stature does not even begin to be labeled until one is 5'0'' or under. She is NORMAL, just a little below average.

Re: Bob saying Black female celebs are not tiny like Kelly. I think he missed one off the most famous & rich black female celebs: Jada Pinket Smith. Kelly & Jada could be twins with their weight & height.

when jessica simpson was on, she seemed like she was a little bit shorter and jessica simpson is listed as 5'2.5. Why do petite celebs always lie, we find out eventually.
Bob said on 16/Nov/13
Super tiny! It may be true that female white celebs run noticeably much smaller
than black female celebs, but I can't think of any white female celebs as tiny
as Kelly Ripa. 5'1 might be close. Peter Pan build, as she suggests, might be
accurate. Only past gymnast Olga Korbut at 84 lb might be smaller. Cute though!
My black 10 yearold neighbor, Carlita has more booty.
Brad said on 17/Oct/13
More like 5 feet 1.

I have been within a yard of Miss Ripa on a number of occasions, 5"1 at best. She is super cool.
Jessica said on 6/Feb/13
Lovely, Isn't Kristin Kreuk 5f3? I think Kelly is around 5f1 to be honest. Kim Kardashian seems closer to 5f1.5 or 5f2 but Kourtney does look around 4f11 or less.
K said on 15/Jan/13
I just watched the interview with Kristen Kreuk with Kelly Ripa. Kristen Kreuk is listed on the site as 5'3". Kelly and Kristen were wearing similiar footwear. There was more than a half inch difference between those two. More like 2 inches. I think Kelly is 5'1". I think Kim Kardashian is 5'1" also and is the same height as Kelly. Kourtney Kardashians looks more 4'11" too and has even said herself that she is 4'11". Khloe Kardashian also has said Kim is 5'1" and Kourtney is 4'11". Kourtney is also the same hight as her friend that is listed on this site as 4'11", Adrienne Bailon.

I think she may be shorter. Just watching the Live show with Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber as guest and they were eye to eye standing next to her, and she had heels on. Those girls are 5'2 each.
Heightgirl said on 12/Jun/12
Dom Kim Kardashian stated that she's 5f2 on her Twitter and Khloe stated that she was on a youtube video where Kim was proving that she is a size 27 with JBrand Jeans. I think they are around 5f1.
Miss K said on 12/Jul/07
I think Regis might have shrinked in the past couple of years, and Kelly looks 5'2'' max. so if she WITH heels grows one or two inches and Regis has shrinked two inches, they're height are the same.
Babe said on 6/Jul/07
And no way is Mark Consuelos 5'8". He is as tall as Kelly or perhaps and inch taller. She is always poking fun at how short he is so if he were 5'8 that would be a normal height for a man.
Babe said on 6/Jul/07
No way is Regis 5 ft 7. He is as tall as Kelly with her heels on.He is about 5 ft 5.
lrua said on 5/Jun/07
She looks very short, very skinny too, always has on huge heels to look same height as Regis, I think she's 5'1" at most.
Alex said on 1/Jun/07
If she says 5'2.5 then she's likely not over that. She doens't look over 5'3 anyway.
robotix said on 29/May/07
Kelly Ripa looks short precisely because of the proportion of her head. Her head is too big for her body which creates the 'dwarf' effect. She's proportioned like a very below average girl so it wouldn't matter if she was 5 ft 8, there would still be short rumors.
Ellie said on 20/Feb/07
Thanks shortie chic. Yeah, I think my upper body is longer and I have gangly arms, but my legs are not very long. And I agree, I think some people just say those sort of things because they know it annoys me. I know a lot of people shorter than me and that look short, and no one says anything to them, probably because they know height doesn't matter to them....
shortie chic said on 19/Feb/07
Ellie, I think I number of things make a person appear taller/shorter than they actually are. For instance, I am measured at 5'3 barefoot. But lots of (catty) girls will say I look under 5 feet tall, which is mean and embarrassing - until they actually stand next to me, and then I don't appear so short anymore. I am skinny and wear size zeros - but I have a longer upper body, which probably doesn't make me look taller. There are short people out there that look taller b/c they have longer limbs. This is my take.
Ellie said on 23/Jan/07
anonymous, i think you mean if your really tiny and skinny you appear SHORTER. for example, i'm 5'2" and 90 lbs, and everyone thinks of me being shorter, probably because i'm just a tiny person, but like when the stand next to me, they're like "i never realized you were that tall! i always thought you were only 5 ft!" but i'm 5'2"!!!
anonymous said on 19/Jan/07
I worked on Hope and faith. Stood next to her during a food scene. I am 5'4 she had a heel on and so did I. I was a little taller than her. I would say she is 5'3. Remember she is really tiny and skinny which makes her appear taller.
roxanne said on 7/Nov/06
how tall is kellie pickler she was shorter than kelly ripa on d show and both were wearin heels i think 5'2"
Ellie said on 20/Oct/06
yes, she's as tall as megan fox but you can't see her feet and kelly is probably wearing heels
Trish Stratus Fan said on 14/Aug/06
I thought everyone was crazy when they said Ripa and Lopez were the same height. But if you look at the picture they took, Lopez is only taller because her heels were higher. Make them stand barefoot back to back and they would be the same height.
Anonymous said on 9/Aug/06
There is a picture on the Regis and Kelly website, I think with heels on she taller than Regis. So how tall is Regis then.
Anonymous said on 28/Jun/06
Yeah, good work on Kelly. I'm going with 5'2.5". Now, J Lo needs to be changed STAT!! She is at a 5'4" MAX in the real world.
Anonymous said on 6/Jun/06
did anyone notice how tall jamie lynn spears was she towers over kelly ripa so r we sure kelly is 5'3 or is jamie lynn just tall
Editor Rob said on 16/May/06
"I don't have a job frustration. I wish I was taller"
petit pois said on 26/Apr/06
Cassidy-Thanks for that you've cleared up my confusion. As for Kelly, did anyone see the episode Hope and Faith when she was trying to impress her folks, Hope was in flats and Kelly was nearly as tall I'd say her heels must have been 4 inches with wedges, however her great comic acting means shes like a little spring, shes always at least one inch off the floor! Fab!
Kats said on 15/Apr/06
5'3 might be rounding up a tad, but let's face it... most of the celebrities on here will not be pegged perfectly. The fact that most do not have 1/2 listings proves that. However since she did say 5'2.5 once, it might be worth the downgrade. 5'3 certainly seems close though. Jennifer Lopez is barely taller than her.
anne said on 18/Mar/06
She might lie about being taller because the gossip rags are true, she's severly underweight. My sister saw her a few weeks ago and said she looks like she needs an iv. Just emaciated. My 5-year-old niece's butt was bigger than Kelly's.
Cassidy said on 15/Mar/06
petit pois- It's probably because everyone is on average half an inch taller in the morning than they are at night because of the spinal discs filling back up with fluid while you sleep. So Kelly may be 5 ft. 2.75
Anonymous said on 21/Feb/06
Regarding the link that Anonymous posted, I think that Jennifer Lopez IS taller than Kelly Ripa in that pic. However, I think that pic DOES prove that Jennifer Lopez isn't 5'6, but more like 5'4.
petit pois said on 19/Feb/06
As a fellow 5ft 3 girl, i can accept she probably doesn't know her exact real height. I've been measured between 2 1/2 to 3 on different occasions so who knows. Someone should invent a decent height measuring machine to settle everyones confusion. Also i really think you can be slumping one day and have great posture the next so you can vary between an inch?!
heightfan said on 19/Jan/06
One of the only celebs who are below average height that continuously downgrades her height. IMO you are right on with 5'3"

I find it very hard to believe she is taller than JLO. Where was this?
that's it said on 13/Jan/06
she was the same height as jennifer lopez or even an inch taller. either j.lo's or ripa's height should be changed here.
Mr. Average Height said on 14/Nov/05
Mark was a guest host last week when Regis was out sick. He looked very tiny. He made a comment, referring to himself as 5 foot 2. He is NOT 5' 10"
Anonymous said on 8/Nov/05
She was on the David Letterman show some time back and Letterman had a scale and was weighing himself, Paul Schaffer, and some other people randomly. Anyway, he put Kelly Ripa on it and she weighed a good 5-7 lbs less than she claimed beforehand. I can't recall exactly but she also said she was 5'2" (may have added the half).
Mr. Awesome said on 27/Jul/05
Anonymous is absolutely correct. Why would she downgrade herself, Rob...I could understand if she was some freakishly tall woman like over 6 foot and was downgrading, but at her height, which is just about perfectly average, she has no comprehensible reason to and absolutely nothing to gain by saying she's 1.5 inches (a very random figure, indeed, to simply pulling out of the blue), shorter than she really is! Rob, she may very well appear 5'3'' in pictures, but come on let's be honest here; don't you think that it's easy to mistake a half an inch just by looking at a picture?
Anonymous said on 26/Jul/05
Why is she put at 5'4" if she, as a grown woman, states she's 5'2.5"? She should be downgraded to the height she claims she is.

[Editor Rob: the question is was she telling the truth or not about her height? I would say there is a fair number of pics that support 5ft 3 or 4 for her...]
Kats said on 8/Jul/05
She just seems shorter than 5'4. People who are 5'2 or 5'3 often go to 5'4, since it's average. When Carmen Electra was on Hope and Faith (Carmen has admitted to being 5'2 1/2), she did not look taller than her. If she was it was by half an inch at best. Their heels looked the same.
Smoke said on 9/Apr/05
It's interesting, because she always walks on stage in heals, and then frequently takes them off while she's sitting down. Then puts them back on again when they stand up to greet a guest. I have a sneaking suspicion that Regis is under 5'7", possibly 5'6" or even 5'5", and if Ripa really is 5'2"-5'3" that would definately make Regis under 5'7". I wonder how tall Consuelos is though, I really think he's around 5'8", though he doesn't even look 6 inches taller than Ripa.
J. said on 8/Apr/05
Now, she's confusing me. It does make sense for her to be under 5'3" and that may be why she talks about how short she is. And just for prespective, on many episodes of Regis & Kelly, Ripa is visibly barefoot.
CelebHeights Editor said on 8/Apr/05
On a guy's page about one of the Miss World events he writes that she mentioned her height: "Kelly Ripa spoke a lot about the pageant and what I thought was really funny was how she took a liking to Miss India. Kelly said Miss India is 5'7" and I'm [kelly] 5'2" and a half"
Smoke said on 8/Apr/05
Okay so we agree that Kelly Ripa isn't really quite the dwarf she makes herself out to be, but truely how tall is Regis? Is he really the 5'7" or 5'8" he gets listed as? I'm also really curious as to Consuelos real height, just how tall could he be without the lifts?
J. said on 8/Apr/05
I'm really bored here at my desk, so I'm gonna keep commenting away. I also noticed that Kelly shortchanges herself. She always comments on her supposed lack of height yet in reality, she's average. With 4" heels, she could be the 5'8" that she always wanted to be! :-) And that husband of her is defintely not 5'10".
