Morning show host Kelly Ripa has announced that she has joined the cast of The CW’s “Riverdale” for its current third season.
Ripa will take on a guest starring role as Mrs. Mulwray, mistress of Veronica’s father Hiram Lodge. Hiram is of course portrayed by Ripa’s real-life husband Mark Consuelos. Ripa jokes: “23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play.”
Season three sees the gang trying to free Archie (KJ Apa) from his incarceration while Hiram Lodge continues to flesh out his plans to control not only Riverdale, but the ever-growing SoDale.
