Kelly Ripa begged for an invitation to Diddy’s yacht in Tuesday’s ‘Live!’ — because someone forgot to vet the reruns




Somebody’s getting thrown overboard for this one.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are on vacation this week, so they’ve been re-airing old interviews from “Live! With Kelly and Mark.”

But it seems someone wasn’t paying attention when they picked out the videotapes — because on Tuesday they aired an episode from June 2023, in which Ripa fawningly begged for an invitation to Sean “Diddy” Combs’ yacht.

Meanwhile, the rap mogul’s homes were raided last week as part of what appears to be a sex trafficking investigation.

Making matters worse, the show tried to cover its tracks by pulling the clip off YouTube after Page Six reached out about the gaffe.

On the rerun, the TV couple complimented guest Mary J. Blige on a photo of her looking fabulous in her bathing suit while posing on a yacht.

“I was in Capri, and I was actually visiting my big brother Puff’s boat,” Blige said.

An eager Ripa replied, “Next time you go on Puff’s boat, we’d like to!”

The tides have clearly changed for Diddy since that interview first aired. In fact, he was still perceived as a respectable hip-hop mogul back then and MTV even honored him with the Global Icon Award that September.

But in November ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura filed a bombshell lawsuit with shocking claims of rape, physical abuse, and sex trafficking.

Diddy adamantly denied any wrongdoing but ended up settling with her within 24 hours.

Homeland Security then raided his Los Angeles and Miami mansions last week as part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation. Diddy was not arrested and his lawyer called the search a “witch hunt.”

Diddy’s A-list pals — including Blige — have not publicly come to his defense.

A rep for “Live!” didn’t get back to us, but the online version of the video showing Ripa and Consuelo asking for a spot on Diddy’s luxurious yacht sank without a trace after we got in touch!
