Kelly Ripa is honest about an intimate mishap with Mark Consuelos

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have been married for 26 years, but the spark between the Live with Kelly and Ryan host and her occasional guest presenter is clearly still alive.

In a 2020 interview with ET Canada, Ripa gushed about how easy it is for Consuelos to give her the warmth and fuzzies, saying, “He knows how to treat his spouse like the only person in the world. He has the best smile I have. ever seen, so when he smiles it’s like the sun is shining on you.” But when Consuelos joins his wife on their talk show, their conversations about their relationship can sometimes range from sweet to spicy.

During a March 2022 episode, the pair discussed how the disparity in their arm spans makes it difficult for them to hold hands when Consuelos made a racy joke about the logistics of their limbs. “You know what they say, it doesn’t matter how long your arms are when you lay down,” he quipped, per ET. This is just one example of how the lovebirds who first met while filming All My Children in 1995 have no shame when it comes to sex.

In a 2014 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Ripa confirmed to Andy Cohen that she believes spending time in the bedroom keeps a relationship strong, per ABC News. However, she discovered that the practice is not without risks and can even land you in the hospital.

Why Kelly Ripa tells an outrageous horror story in her memoir

In her unpublished memoir, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories, Kelly Ripa tells a hospital horror story that ends with a nightmarish bogeyman. In an excerpt shared by Haute Living, Ripa recounts how she passed out while having sex with Mark Consuelos and woke up in the hospital. She learned that the culprits in her coital breakdown were two ovarian cysts. “My eyes alternate between the blurry images on the screen, the remains of my ovarian tormentor and Mark happily snacking,” Ripa writes. “Mark could be at a movie theater or a spa. Instead I lie flat on my back and wonder when the other two cysts will rupture.”

In his rush to get Ripa to the hospital, Consuelos threw together a sloppy ensemble that his stylish wife woke up in appalled: a pair of his gym shorts, a leotard and Manolo Blahnik heels. “He dressed me like a dime store hooker in my distress… As I lay on the stretcher I thought I was dreaming; i had a nightmare I didn’t know I had come to,” Ripa writes.

This isn’t the only time Ripa has shared an embarrassing sex story. On Live with Kelly and Ryan, she and Consuelos revealed that their daughter Lola walked in on them having sex on Lola’s birthday. Ripa actually joked about being unconscious, telling her horrified daughter, “I’m being resuscitated!”
