Kelly Ripa Attends An Italian Spelling Bee

What would happen if we spelled words the way we say them, especially if we had an accent?  The folks at Funny or Die enlisted Kelly Ripa to help find out that answer.  In this video she attends a Spelling Bee with Mark Consuelos, where the judges are played by Tony Sirico and Lorraine Bracco.  Every word has a distinctive Italian flavor to them, and the childrens spell the words they way they are pronounced.  Until Mark decides to intervene.
