Talk show host Kelly Ripa broke four bones in her foot during a dance class this week, returning to the "Live! With Kelly and Michael" set Thursday morning on crutches and wearing a medical boot.

"I'm like, 'Maybe nobody will notice,'" Ripa joked at the beginning of the morning talk show, explaining the accident in detail, according to Us Weekly.

Ripa, who said doctors told her she would have to wear the boot for six weeks, told cohost Michael Strahan that someone left a weight on the dance floor and her attempt to jump over it didn't go so well.

"In my mind I'm an incredible dancer, graceful as can be — and I landed on the weight," Ripa said. "My foot went over and under the weight. I just heard — it sounded like bubble wrap, you guys."

As E! News reported, Ripa admitted that she did not want to call an ambulance because she feared it would be "on the evening news" and opted to leave the dance studio to her own, and head to the hospital. She was joined by her husband Mark Consuelos soon afterward, she noted.

"So we took this X-ray … and we found out that I have like four little bones that broke off," Ripa said. "He said the good news is it's in a way that doesn't require surgery."

Ripa joked that Consuelos turned into a fashion photographer during her ordeal, taking pictures and video at her every turn in the hospital.

"Mark is at the hospital with me and has never in 21 years felt the need to photograph me, videotape me, when I have full hair and makeup, nothing," Ripa said with a laugh. "But yesterday, he was like Scavullo. He followed me around with a camera. He was never more alive. He loved this moment of suffering."

Ripa has been cohost of daytime talk show, replacing Kathy Lee Gifford to sit beside Regis Philbin in 2001, according to People magazine. Strahan joined Ripa as Philbin's replacement in 2012
