Kelly Ripa is confronting a beauty mistake she made head-on.

During Wednesday’s Live with Kelly, the host addressed something stars don’t usually speak openly about: an unfortunate Botox experience.

The topic came up during a discussion with guest co-host Megyn Kelly about having a “bad side.”

“I’m going to tell you a story I’ve never told anyone,” said Ripa, 46. “I got bad Botox about … what was it, a year ago? And it was bad. It did something to my good side, so then I had two bad sides. I’m not kidding!”

The mother of three insisted she wouldn’t “talk about it beyond that” but said the situation has improved somewhat.

“I’m starting to look myself again, but there was about a six-month period where people were like: ‘What’s wrong with Kelly? She doesn’t smile anymore,’ ” said Ripa. “And I was like: ‘I am smiling!’ ”

“Being in the public eye is so fun, isn’t it?” said her co-host Kelly, 45, with a laugh.
