Faith made note of Kelly's work schedule, telling her: "I miss you!" to which the host admitted: "I know I am never anywhere but here."

Still, the 1883 actress commended her, saying: "You are working your tail off girl!" which prompted the singer to reveal just how excited she is for her summer break.

She confessed: "I'm taking the summer off, I am very excited," going on to make the shocking revelation that "it's my first summer off since I was like sixteen."

Over the last three years of her show, Kelly has created hundreds of unforgettable moments with guests

Kelly maintained how relaxed she plans to be all summer regardless of what may come up, joking about the irony behind people suddenly trying to flood her agenda with plans right when she says she's "out of office."
