Kelly Ripa Unveils Her Wax Clone (PHOTOS)

Kelly Ripa’s bubbly personality has now been captured in wax.

The cheery Live With Regis and Kelly hostess has been immortalized in the Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York City’s Times Square. Ripa was on hand to unveil her new doppelganger, who’s sporting a bright-red dress and long blonde hair. The wax version isn’t quite an exact replica of Miss Ripa, but then again, what could be?

The search is still on for Kelly’s future co-host, as Regis Philbin will be retiring from the show. Everyone from Ryan Seacrest to Mario Lopez to Anderson Cooper have been mentioned as a possible fill-in, but there’s still no official word.
