AceShowbiz - Kelly Ripa has offered words of comfort for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. The host of "Live With Kelly and Mark" gave an unexpected assurance to the "Jersey Shore" star upon seeing that the latter nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction during a live show.
The 52-year-old host witnessed the moment the 35-year-old reality star came close to exposing her chest while tapping for the Wednesday, August 9 episode of her morning TV program. Instead of being left flustered, she quickly told her guest, "You know, there's nothing wrong with a little slip on morning TV." She added, "It's like visual coffee."
Snooki's close call happened when she was making an entrance to the studio of "Live With Kelly and Mark". Wearing a flared brown top with a plunging neckline, she made an excited entrance, and bouncingly gave the show's audience high-fives. At one point, right before she got to Kelly and her co-host, Mark Consuelos, she shouted, "Oh! My boobs!"
Once she got to the stage, Snooki then told the two hosts, "I almost had a slip there." All the while, she covered her chest with her hand and her long blonde hair. Still, her honest confession prompted Mark to burst into an awkward laughter.
Snooki was not the only one who narrowly avoided a wardrobe malfunction on "Live with Kelly and Mark". In a May 31 episode of the morning TV program, Kelly unveiled that she experienced "a small wardrobe emergency backstage." About how it happened, Kelly recounted to Mark at that time, "It was very exciting. I almost did not walk out here!"
Mark responded to Kelly's confession with a joke. He said that he was "wondering how that was going to go." He then shared that he tried to find a way to "stretch" the opening intentionally to give her time to fix the mishap. Fortunately, she was able to handle the bundler and appear on the show just in time.
Kelly also dealt with wardrobe issue while wearing the same dress back in April. In the April 18 episode of the show, she and Mark were learning a dance with the "Dancing with the Stars" dancers, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson, when her dress ripped "just a little bit."
