UPDATE: Ripa's injury is a stress fracture of the femoral neck – the section of the femur (thigh bone) just below where it connects to the hip. She's been ordered to rest without exercise for three to six weeks. On Regis and Kelly, she explained, “I don't need any surgery. I don't need anything special done. I just need to sit.” But six weeks off from the gym might be a high demand for the fitness fanatic, whose extreme exercise habits are most likely the cause of her injury.
