Kelly Ripa is not quitting her day job or leaving Ryan Seacrest’s side anytime soon despite what you might have heard. According to Women’s Health, there are posts written about Ripa leaving her show so that she can focus her time and energy on her line of skincare for Ultra SK.

“There’s only one problem: Kelly has no affiliation with the skincare products being promoted, and the rumors that she’s parting ways with the show are patently false,” says the exercise magazine in a story posted lasted Wednesday.

There is a good chance that the topic of this scam could come up on Monday’s show when she and Ryan welcome Jonathan “Mindhunter” Groff to the show and if so, she will probably have a lot to say.

Of the four main morning talk shows, Live with Kelly and Ryan is the only one not airing “best of” episodes. Here’s what you expect to see this week:

Live with Kelly and Ryan (Syndicated)

Jonathan Groff, who is visually best known for his work on the Netflix series Mindhunter and vocally for his work voicing the role of Kristoff for Disney’s animated Frozen and Frozen 2, will visit with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on Monday along with Lela Loren (Power) plus Chris Byrne aka the Toy Guy will show off some great summer toys.

Tuesday’s show will feature conversations with Jamie Foxx, Julianna Margulies and Laurie Gelman, while singer-songwriter KT Tunstall will perform. Wednesday’s show gets animated with guests Kevin Hart (who voiced roles from The Secret Life of Pets) and Naomi Scott (who appeared in the live-action version of Aladdin). Plus, Dana Avidan from PopSugar will explain some summer fashion trends.

Thursday’s show will feature Selena Gomez, Bill Hader, Mena Massoud (also from Aladdin) along with MasterChef Junior winner Che Spiotta. Finally, Friday’s show will welcome Samuel L. Jackson, MMA fighter Juan Archuleta will show off his signature moves, NOTD will perform and a pair of 11-year-old twins will show off their cup-stacking skills.
