‘The Queen Of Soul’ Power Walks at Meijer

Aretha Franklin was on “Live with Kelly & Michael” last week.

She sang and talked to Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin’s fill-in’s fill-in, Anderson Cooper. (I wonder if Regis will EVER come back.)

Franklin talked about food, Cracker Barrel … and her workout routine.

Franklin had previously told ABC News story “Aretha Franklin: I Power Walk the ‘Aisles’ of Walmart, K-Mart” where she explains where her walking takes her.

On “Live With Kelly & Michael,” she told Cooper and Kelly Ripa “about her ‘walking regimen,’” which includes walking in super stores like Walmart, K-Mart and Meijer.

“The biggest ones, K-Mart, Meijer, Wal-Mart,” she said, adding that sometimes people stop her. “I really don’t like to break my stride when I’m walking. So, I change aisles really quickly.”

Still, she knows how to splurge, too. The singing legend, who drove from Detroit to New York for the show, added that she loves to make pit stops at Cracker Barrel and Bob Evans.

Meijer, wow! Way to walk, Queen of Soul!
