There’s one reality TV show that absolutely disgusts Kelly Ripa.
While so many over-the-top shows could easily be the one (Kardashians, anyone? "Southern Charm"? Any of the "Real Housewives"? You get the idea.) it’s ABC’s uber-popular "The Bachelorette," that draws Ripa’s ire.
The "Live with Kelly and Ryan" star did not hold back during an animated discussion of the show with her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, on Tuesday morning.
"You guys know how I feel about the show … it disgusts me," she said upon hearing that the current bachelorette, Hannah Brown, would be making an appearance, according to Page Six.
Brown previously competed in the 23rd season of "The Bachelor," whose star at the time, Colton Underwood, did not choose her as his "one," Fox News noted.
Turning her attentions to "The Bachelor," Ripa continued her tirade, insisting that it was a "gross" and "creepy" show.
"I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion... You know how I feel, ladies; we are too special to be arguing over a guy," she said, according to US Weekly.
It did not take long for backlash to erupt.
Chris Harrison, who has hosted "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" responded to Ripa's remarks on social media.
"Look out #BachelorNation @KellyRipa is coming after you and your 'disgusting' Monday night habit," he tweeted.
"Bachelor Nation" creator, Mike Fleiss, also addressed Ripa's comments on social media, pointing out that "Live with Kelly and Ryan" shared a network with "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."
"Easy, @KellyRipa … #TheBachelor franchise pays your salary!" he tweeted.
