‘When she was on All My Children and leaving, she said, “I’m going out to California,”‘ Ripa began. 

‘And I said, ‘What? There’s nothing in California. What are you talking about? You don’t want to go out to California as a young starlet. What do you think? You think you’re going to become a star? You’re going to stay here where the work is! Theater! Television!”‘ Ripa added.

‘She was like, “You’re wrong,”‘ Ripa said, adding she was, ‘so glad she didn’t listen. She did it! She was like, “Hold my beer, I’m going to go be a star.”‘
