We first learned about Ripa's guest spot via an interview with Wayne's Abbi Jacobson on Wednesday, and that spot had Ripa portraying a less-than-sober version of herself. Or, as Ripa said in her interview with Jacobson, a "Party Kelly Ripa."
The latest episode finds Abbi in a friend's living room following an attempt at returning Ripa's lost coat. And, of course, it is there that Jacobson and Ripa crack open some moonshine:
