For those who want to know the reason Kelly Ripa appeared on the Regis & Kelly set with crutches... 

The Live With Regis & Kelly cohost simply has a stress fracture of the thigh bone, just below the end that connects to the hip. 

The prescription: no exercise - three to six weeks of rest. 

"I don't need any surgery," said Ripa. "I don't need anything special done. I just need to sit."
