Leslie Jones is truly a fan of Kelly Ripa’s. Not a fair weather, “I don’t mind the Live segments on Taxi TV” sort of fan. No, Jones is serious. Like, a pre-Hope & Faith fan. During her appearance on Live this morning, Jones could barely contain how excited she was to be in the presence of the woman who played Hayley Vaughan Santos. “Porkchop,” Jones screamed, in a reference that only All My Children devotees will get. “You will always be Porkchop to me. I raised you.” Jones also showered some praise on Ripa’s guest host Carrie Ann Inaba, but really it was Ripa who got the bulk of her adoration. The entire interview is a joy, including the bit toward the end where Jones allows an errant “fucking” to slip from her lips.
Having Jones’ love seems like just the greatest gift. See, for instance, how she reacted upon meeting Art Parkinson, the actor who plays Rickon on Game Of Thrones.
