Kelly Ripa was sporting a new boot on Thursday's episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael — but not as a fashion statement!
At the start of the show, the co-host walked on set with crutches and a medical boot because she had a scary foot injury during her dance class!

The 44-year-old was in good spirits as she told co-host Michael Strahan how her foot was broken due to someone leaving a weight on the floor! She explained:
"All I know is I did a jump—and in my mind, I am an incredible dancer, graceful as can be—and I landed on the weight and my foot went over and under the weight. It sounded like bubble wrap, you guys!"
The former soap opera star was rushed to the hospital where her husband Mark Consuelos soon met up with her — to record her suffering on video!
After being examined, the blonde was told no surgery was needed, but she needed to stay in the medical boot for six weeks!
Strahan quipped that he would help glam up the boot and "bedazzle it personally with my glue gun and some sparkles," but Ripa admitted she was going to "give it three weeks" instead of six!
