Live! With Kelly

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Announcer: It's "live with kelly and ryan!" Today's star of the series "the brave," anne heche. And on mom from ohio gets a new look as we wrap up our style regrets week.

It's that time of the year to check out the biggest pumpkin in america. All next on "live" ." And now, here are kelly ripa and ryan seacrest.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: What's up?

Kelly: Hi.

Ryan: I love that song still.

Kelly: Considering what day of the week it is.

Ryan: Friday, october october 20th. That's so cool.

Kelly: At both of your birthdays. I've got to say, we see a lot of birthdate tr is here. The cupcake takes the cake. Happy birthday.

Ryan: Happy friday.

Kelly: We've made it. This is my favorite day of the year. Everybody knows, those of you just tuning in may not know. My favorite day of the year is world's largest pumpkin day.

When the world's largest pumpkin as our guest I get very excited, I am unabashedly in love with the world's largest pumpkin.

Ryan: There's a big reveal where we see the world's largest pumpkin. It's been here before. We have additional costars with the world's largest pumpkin.

Kelly: The world's largest gourd. World's largest watermelon. Who doesn't like that? We I wish we could make the wos largest watermelon-tini. I'm so angry, you take so many pictures in your life and after a while, especially with cell phones and now, everything gets filed away and you never see your photos again.

These are the ones I could find of joaquin. 2010, 2013. These are the only ones I could find. I have so many years of pumpkins.

Ryan: Are they all in your phone?

Kelly: Somewhere.

Ryan: Artificial intelligence, the phone will search and find the pumpkins.

Kelly: It knows the word pumpkin? It knows what pumpkin looks lik like.

Gelman: If you look at joaquin in this photo, and you watch the segment coming up, kelly and I will look just like that. It will be the same size as joaquin back in the day.

Kelly: Its national mammogram day. Do you hear that? A lot of women applauding, women who have not had mammograms yet. Right? You haven't lived until you see me have a mammogram.

Ryan: What day and time is that?

Kelly: I don't do it on this day, I do it once a year.

Ryan: It's an annual thing thing.

Kelly: Its annual, so fun. They have a -- you would think they have a special machine but it's one-size-fits-all, allegedly. They take skin from my back and my rear end, half of me is in the machine.

We just need to get more -- all right.


I don't think this is going to work, don't you have a smaller size? "No, we'll get it in there, I need to stick this on your --" they put the little stickers on your nipples, how many women have worn them home?

Ryan: You are supposed to encourage people to get mammograms.

Kelly: Absolutely. If I can do it, anybody can do it.


That is the point. My daughter will -- she doesn't know. I don't say to her "don't forget, mommy is getting a mammogram today." She will, no matter what time it is, usually around noon, she will call me 700 times and text me 700 times while I am in the position.

Ryan: You raised her.

Kelly: I thought I did.

Ryan: Speaking of the phone, I know we have -- you have yours all the time, you are incredible at responding to messages.

Kelly: It was my new year's resolution a couple of years ago to be more immediate with my responses. I am very bad with email but I'm much better with text.

Ryan: Do you have your phone with you all the time? Do you take it -- do you sleep with that?

Kelly: I sleep with it so you and I can communicate. When we both have insomnia we can talk to each other.

Ryan: The side of the bed?

Kelly: I put it on a charger.

Ryan: What about when you go to the toilet? Do you take it with you?

Kelly: Of course, who do you think I am, a savage?

Ryan: I know you are a practical person, you would take it with you.

Kelly: I get a lot done, 90% of my email happens on the toilet.


Ryan: 70% of people with phones keep it with them all the time including the toilet. I do the same and sometimes I will be on a work call and I will ask a question that entails a long response and hit the mute.

Kelly: You have to flush.

Ryan: Hit the flush, sometimes "are you there?"


"I'm here."

Kelly: Data so smart.

Ryan: Why is it echoing?

Kelly: I'm not clever enough to hit the mute button. I flush and run. I run. They are ending "fashion police police." Did you know that?

Ryan: Only because I work at e!, I host the red carpet show.

Kelly: They are showing all this previously unheard footage with our beloved joan rivers. I knew her well, she used her cohost with me all the time.

Ryan: She was magic.

Kelly: Magic. Speaking of mammograms, she used to tell the best joke on our show, do you remember? "At my age you can get a pedicure and mammogram at the same time."



"What is she talking about?" I know I know exactly what she's talking about.

Ryan: Whatever she did, she was so very funny. You knew her well, I only knew she was in the building at e!, I used to host e! News every day and every now and then, when she was taping there would be a sunday brunch buffet lined up through the hallways and a guy at the end of the hallway making fresh omelettes.

I guess she had an omelette maker in her deal. Anytime --

Kelly: That's a good deal.

Ryan: And her contract there must've been something where she had a person making fresh omelettes. We would also bomb omelettes ges from her on McKAY.

Kelly: One my friend got married I got to sit next to joan. We had a lot of laughs and great conversations, we covered it all as she died a couple weeks after that.

You don't realize how much somebody means to you. I never got a chance to say "you mean so much to me" but we laughed so much that night. We had a really, truly great time, I was so grateful for liza for giving me the golden seat next to joan.

She was drinking white wine and eating out toys. "I'm having altoids."

Ryan: It's a sophisticated palate. She did the live from the red carpet show, I remember when e! Came to me and said we would like you to do the red carpet show, I was terrified to stand on the red carpet because she owned what she did on the red carpet.

I couldn't get near doing that and I'm not funny. The first one I ever did, but I do the live from the red carpet show when the stars all arrived, the golden globes, do you mind if I stand on the roof of the beverly hilton and talk down to people down there?

I felt like I couldn't deliver what might be great on the carpet? I did it for the first time, it was the most awkward show you've ever seen. Some star would walk up and nobody is there to talk to them.

But me from the roof. "Congratulations on your nomination, who are you wearing?" It didn't work out well.

Kelly: I can't picture those red carpet shows without you, you are just as synonymous with that as joan was.

Ryan: She had that signature joan thing.

Kelly: My favorite thing she used to do, when she did the hollywood star, one of them would get engaged on the fiance, she would say "let me see the ring." And she would look at the ring and say "you can do better than that." Every time, it didn't matter how big the ring was, it was never big enough.

Ryan: Those of the great memories we have.


I know you were -- you touch cur teeth on soaps, you were on soaps for years and you did the show simultaneously and you were a parent at the same time, I don't know how you did it.

Did you ever do nighttime soaps?

'S >> Kelly: I never did but I used to watch them.

Ryan: "Dynasty," "dallas" which are back. Don't feel pressured into liking "falcon crest" if you didn't really like it.

Kelly: Looking around, everyone is kind of young. The greatest show on tv.

Ryan: I was into "beverly hills 90210."

Kelly: You were on beverly hills 90210.

Ryan: It depends on how you define it, I had a very short role as a game show host. For a couples game show.

Kelly: The reason I bring this up, when you first got your job here, we grabbed as much archival footage of you as we could. It's so funny because we have a clip of you on "90210".

>> Kelly, aside from the bedroom, what is your fiance's favorite place to make whoopee?


Kelly: The other guy is daniel cosgrove. I used to work with him, I'm not kidding.

Ryan: My natural hair color there.

Kelly: It was amazing.

Ryan: I was so excited to get that role, it was for or five years ago obviously. I was very excited to get that role because when I was a kid in high school I just wanted to meet jason priestley, brandon walsh.

He was the guy I looked up to. Part of the reason I moved to L.A. Was I watched "90210", I thought the world was just like that.


Kelly: I can't stand it, it's too much to handle. Don't forget. He is standing up and pointing, this is a "save the date" reminder.

Ryan: Halloween is coming up. And live right here, "live" is doing our annual costume contes contest.

Kelly: Costume contest, it's a big deal, I'm always very impressed when people show up wearing what they are wearing. All you have to do is come to our studio here in new york city wearing a costume.

It's just that simple.

Ryan: You could win $10,000 in prizes.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: Big prizes. A big, big, big prizes. Halloween tuesday, which we can all agree is a terrible day to have halloween. Tuesday october 31st.

Ryan: Between all of us that are on the show, it's 44 costumes between us for halloween.

Gelman: Almost 80 costumes here.

Kelly: That's the most we've ever done.

Gelman: I believe it is.

Kelly: Halloween should only fall on a thursday, friday, or saturday.

Ryan: I agree with you.


Kelly: I'm sorry, what's going to happen? What's supposed to happen? Are we supposed to have a party or go somewhere? What time are we going to bed?

Ryan: 9:12, I am out.

Kelly: Should I put on the invitation for the party, from 8:00 until 9:12? Come as you want to or don't.

Ryan: Music to my ears. Today on the show we have a good one for you.

Kelly: Anne heche is here.


Ryan: And we will see america's largest pumpkin. A giant watermelon, a world record large squash and the longest gordon all all the land.

Kelly: Did you say the world's longest gourd? How long is it? Gelman right there with the answers we all need. We will also see the results of our final style regrets makeover with McKENZIE from ohio.


Ryan: And now get your phones out, pay attention. It's time for "call me live travel trivia!"

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: That's donna from allentown, pennsylvania, good morning.

Kelly: Donna, you got the moves.

>> Thank you.

>> Oh, my god, this is crazy. How are you?

Kelly: We are looking at this picture of you, is this in edmonton? It is you in front of a buddha.

Ryan: In front of a statue statue.

>> That was when I was in japan in august, in front of one of the buddhist temples I want to.

Kelly: Wow.

Ryan: Where are you now answering the phone so politely?

>> In edmonton, in canada.

Kelly: He's being polite. He's in canada.

Ryan: Not like you americans. Where in edmonton?

>> I'm at home, I was in the middle of working, I work at home. I was not paying attention to what I'm doing.

Ryan: What do you do for work?

>> I work for -- it's an association for observation of health and safety. We certify health and safety professionals across canada.

Kelly: Spin the wheel.

Ryan: Welcome back. She is known from her emmy and tony nominated performances on the screen, stage, everywhere. Please welcome the beautiful, talented anne heche.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: You look like a chic, she could new yorker.

Anne: That's what I was thinking about you. I'm from new mexico.

Kelly: I just spend some time there.

Anne: I love it, did you fall in love with it? It's home to my son, his name is atlas, by the way. He looked at the mountains and thought "maybe I'm not that great."

Kelly: The boys or how old?

Anne: 8 and 16. We've known each other quite a while.

Kelly: You won and emmy, we said you were emmy-nominated. I was there when you won your m me. That's incredible. Soaps are good, it's where you meet cool people.

Anne: It's where you meet people, not on the radio.

Ryan: You do a radio show, don't you?

Anne: I did, it's called "love and heche" ."

Kelly: What do you guys talk about?

Anne: We are really straight shooters, we are real people, we've survived our lives and now we are getting to a point where we can talk to others about it in a real way.

And hopefully start a conversation and if they can tell us what's going on, we can help direct them in the right place to get some help.

Kelly: I have to listen to your show, where can I find it?

Ryan: They tell us you host sunday funday with the cast sometimes.

Anne: It's incredible, we pull out dumb games and do stupid things. Like play cornhole.

Ryan: We have our own version of cornhole here.

Kelly: It's called livehole.

Kelly: Let's show anne. Take a look at it.

Anne: This is -- this is quite, these are open. This is talk show host their best.

Kelly: Show the audience.

Ryan: Take a look.

Anne: Where is mine? Where is my "live"hole?

Ryan: We are going to play, kelly and I will be a tea team.

Anne: Are you pretending I'm on the coordinated side of life?

Ryan: It takes two of us to compete.

Anne: I've heard that before.

Kelly: Do we want to throw it into ryan's hole or kelly's?

Anne: Where do I go from?

Ryan: Stay behind the line.

Kelly: If you lose I get to keep your address and your shoes. My turn. Here we go.

Ryan: Right on. And you are up.

Anne: Do I go back? I am feeling the pressure.

Ryan: Kelly, I'm nervous.

Kelly: Shoes and dress. You only get a trophy.


Did ryan just get a hole in one in his own hole?

Ryan: I've been trying for years.

Anne: I'm glad it was you and not me.


Ryan: This is never happened.

Announcer: More with anne heche when we return.

Kelly: How anne heche do you learn your lines? That's a lot.

Anne: I've become an anagram wizard. Fbi, nfl, cia. All I do is speak and anagram and try to figure out what goes around it.

Kelly: It's unbelievable. Is that the most challenging work you've ever done? You said this woman is the strongest woman you've ever played.

Anne: We are playing people who have this in real life. Our team is created by delta force fbi, we are all together in a team and that's what makes a show so unique.

There is a real person in the world who does this and directs people to go and other countrie countries, save lives and hopefully keep us safe.

Ryan: What do you think we would know about this team?

Anne: Absolutely nothing, this is the first time there's been a show about it. In the first episode we had an american doctor who gets kidnapped by the taliban, we go in and save her.

From the minute you start watching a show, you are on the ride with us. It's like E.R., special forces, you've nearly never seen it. You understand how the intelligence works, and directing him and taking the moral responsibility and it is a fascinating show.

There are some shows I have to sell but this is not one of them. This is about our military, there are people who do this in real life.

Ryan: It's called "the brave" ."


We will be right back, stay with us.

Announcer: Monday on "live"


Ryan: I know, it's the last one.

Kelly: The last day of our style regrets makeover.

Ryan: We love seeing all the changes this week. Today's makeover has a special story of why she wants this new look.

Kelly: Here's our man behind the makeovers. You smell good. Minty fresh.

Ryan: Tell us about today.

>> A breath of fresh air, mackenzie is from ohio, such a beautiful woman. She likes her style, her son is in the military, "mom, when I come home in september I want you to say good-bye to that look from the '80s." "I just way to do something different." Lynn wrote to us and said "I need your help and it would be an honor for me if you guys could help me change my look so my son could be as proud of me as I am of him."


Kelly: I know, I know.

>> When we were doing the fittings yesterday my eyes were brimming. Let's remind everybody what lynn looked like.

Kelly: I liked the '80s, I'm sticking to it.

>> That look is gone, say hello to the new lynn McKENZIE.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: You look like a bombshell. Hi. You look gorgeous. Holy smokes, you look amazing. How do you feel? Do you like the change? I was looking at you, I love thee '80s, you look great.

>> I love this new hairstyle, I love these guys, I have had the best time. I feel amazing and beautiful.

>> Do you think your son will like it? He's going to go nuts. We went to oscar, I had my good friend take up the layers and create more body and movement, he took off 7 inches.

For that haircolor, we warmed it up to to a warm, auburn browd added more dimension in body and depth. For makeup, nothing brightens up the face better than beautiful pops of coral.

For a lady that was in the '80s, a lady in red. Beautiful red dress.


Kelly: So beautiful. I love it, I love it, I love it. That is the before and the afte after.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: How long has your son been in the service?

>> Three years.

Ryan: Where is he stationed?

>> 29 palms california.

Ryan: In the vent to make event someone is with him or he's watching, would you like to say?

>> I love you you and have s for you. Can you be proud of me?


Thank you so much.

Kelly: I know he is proud of you.

[Cheers and applause]

>> You're so beautiful. You're beautiful, mom.

Kelly: Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you. What a handsome son you have and what a beautiful mom you have. Does this meet your standards now? Got rid of the '80s look.

>> I love you.

>> You look beautiful.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: I can't believe, they didn't tell us you were coming because we are the worst at keeping a surprise, we can't keep a secret at all so they did not tell us you were coming.

Everybody pulling this off behind everybody's back here.

>> She was texting me all week.

>> There is nothing worse than holding that secret every time she talks about her son.

>> She was texting you all week?

>> She was texting me last night, saying she was crying.

>> I said "please make sure you watch it."

Kelly: I've got to tell you, your mom is so proud of you.


Ryan: Thank you for your service, thank you.

Kelly: Ended with a bang.

♪ Coming up next, we've got america's biggest pumpkin.

Announcer: The number one rated three ply ultra bath tissue, white clouds family products are one choice you will never regret. Go to "live"'s web site to learn more.

Announcer: All week, "live" has great stars. Anna faris. October 31st, our big halloween show.

Kelly: More for me.

Edward: Being a dad with young kids, it's a very busy life; sports and games and piano lessons. When I was first diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma I had two options; invasive brain surgery or radiation therapy.

Potential risks of brain surgery are very very scary; severe vertigo, loss of balance, facial paralysis. I was told by at least four different doctors here in southern California "you're absolutely going to loose hearing in your right ear, so just plan on it." I wasn't willing to go down that path, and that lead me to Dr. Lunsford at upmc.

Dr. Lunsford: Years ago after surgical removal of these tumors many patients paid a price. Early in my training I said that there has to be another way.

The gamma knife allows us to have enormous precision, designed to inactivate the growth of the tumor.

Edward: I'm just so grateful to have my health and my hearing. I didn't choose to have an acoustic neuroma, but I did choose upmc.

Announcer: It's time for our annual halloween costume contest and we want you to be part of it. This year we are giving away $10,000 in prizes. To be eligible all you have to do is show up at our studio dressed in a costume.

Kelly: Hi, joe, I'm kelly, how are you? This is a gorgeous squash, I love it so much. Our most people's mistaken in thinking this is a pumpkin?

>> This is a hybrid, it's half pumpkin, half squash. It has the color of a green squash.

Kelly: How do you get these two fruits to mate?

>> It's something you have to do yourself. This one is actually self pollinated, you have a male flower you cross to the male fruit. This is 2,118 pounds.

Kelly: Thank you.

Ryan: Happy halloween, joe.

Ryan: Are the seeds inside larger regular size?

Kelly: Can you eat this?

Kelly: What will happen to the seeds in this pumpkin?

>> On saturday I understand the new york botanical garden is going to allow us to retrieve the seeds, we will have to cut a hole in the pumpkin, take the seeds out and leave it on display.

Ryan: Do you need me to dive inside to get the seeds?

>> That would help, I could hold your feet.

Kelly: How long did it take you to grow this pumpkin?

>> It is just over 100 days old. It had to average over 20 pounds a day for its entire life.
