Kelly Ripa follows all the rules of great health: She drinks water, she works out, and she doesn’t eat too much. But in a recent interview with In Touch, she also bravely admitted that she’s got a beauty secret: Botox. Which, she says, she really, really likes a lot. And she always knows it’s time to go back under the needle when, she explains, her kids notice that she’s starting to frown. More

Kelly Ripa is a poster girl for fitness: The 41-year-old host of Live! With Kelly is constantly getting attention for being in great shape, and promotes health and exercise to her fans. On Wednesday, she was out promoting her charity work with the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund at a soccer clinic for kids put on by Electrolux, and we got a chance to interview about how how she manages to stay dedicated to her healthy habits in the midst of a busy life, and also asked her about how she stays down-to-earth about body image and beauty in the face of so much media attention and headlines about her looks.

There are a lot of airbrushed slideshows out there about what’s going to happen to our bodies, skin, hair, and wardrobe after 30, but there’s plenty of living proof to show that it’s possible to maintain optimal health and fitness. We found 12 celebrities who are famed for taking good care of themselves — inside and out. We’re not naming names (you’ll have to click on our links to see who’s flaunting their abs on the beach) but we are naming workout routines and diets: This is your chance to see what happens when you combine a healthy routine with a swimsuit (and of course, some pretty good genes).

If you’re sick of reading about how every actress got in shape for the red carpet, we suggest viewing Jimmy Kimmel’s “Hottie Body Hump Club” for some comic relief. Its worth watching all seven minutes of his “Humpilates” video, below, to see tons of Hollywood celebrities — Scarlett Johanssen, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel, Kelly Ripa, Emily Blunt, Sofia Vergara, and even Lindsay Lohan — try his workout. And you might even burn a few calories while laughing: More
If you’ve ever twisted your ankle on the treadmill, you know that getting injured while you exercise isn’t cool. But that’s not what Hollywood stars and films would make us think: It seems there’s always someone getting injured on set or working out so hard they need crutches, somehow making them seem “tough” or signaling dedication to their roles. We hope there aren’t producers or PR people out there telling them to get out and break a leg for publicity’s sake, but regardless of where the pressure comes from to work so hard it hurts, we don’t think it’s a good trend.

When Kelly Ripa wore heels despite a broken hip on “Live With Regis and Kelly” this Monday, she shocked the audience and doctors, at least one of whom thought that sporting high heels and crutches wasn’t a very smart look. Dr. Randall E. Marcus, the department chairman of orthopedics at University Hospitals Case Medical Center, told AOL Health that her footwear choice just increased her risk of falling or losing balance and worsening her injury, and pointed out that Ripa’s injury — a stress fracture of the fermoral neck in her right hip — is a serious concern, despite Ripa’s jokes about it on TV. “If you keep fatiguing bone cells, circulation is retrograde, and it displaces blood,” he told AOL. “The femoral head can die, and you can end up needing a hip replacement.”
