“Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday night, Ripa alleged that she has been “targeted” and unfairly maligned due to her silence on the issue. “I wish I had set the record straight in real time,” she proclaimed. “I really trusted the people around me … People keep telling me to take the high road.”“As a woman we are often told to take the high road, and that is woman speak for ‘Shut the f–k up,'” the small screen star further declared.

Ripa has now written about her relationship with Philbin in her new tome, “Live Wire: Long Winded Short Stories.”The budding author says she isn’t “trashing” her late co-star, and actually “expresses a lot of love” for him in the book. “I painstakingly wrote every single word of this book, and it was hard and those chapters [about Philbin] were the hardest to write,” she told Cohen.

Earlier this week, while promoting the tome, Ripa spoke candidly about Philbin in an interview with People, saying: “I don’t want to feel like I’m slamming anyone or that I’m being disrespectful.
