In 2003, she had a role on Hope & Faith as Faith Fairfield, for three seasons before the show was cancelled due to a decline in ratings. In 2009, Kelly and her husband Mark Consuelos announced that with their production company, Milojo Productions, TLC would pick up two shows developed by the company. In 2011, Regis Philbin announced he would retire from Live!, the show would then be renamed Live! with Kelly. After a number of different rotating co-hosts, Michael Strahan and Kelly’s dynamic of opposites attract was undeniable, and the show was then named Live! with Kelly and Michael.
