Soap star-turned-Live spitfire Kelly Ripa seems to be downplaying a story in Monday's New York Post that said she plans to quit All My Children when her contract expires in December. The Post reported Ripa would make only sporadic appearances on the sudser. "All My Children has been and will continue to be a big part of my life," Ripa responded in a statement. "I hope to continue to appear as Hayley Santos for many years to come."
