Kelly Ripa Mark Consuelos Marriage Relationships

Kelly Ripa says Mark Consuelos solves all problems with ‘love and sexy time’


When speaking of celebrity couples who overshare, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos should never be left out of the conversation. Whether it’s thirst trap photos or personal information they thrive off giving TMI about their marriage. Mark filled in for Ryan Seacrest on Monday’s episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan. During the show, they discussed the second episode of Scene form a Marriage, which was tortuous. Without spoiling anything, it was full of strife that asked the viewer to consider how they would react if they were in either of the characters’ shoes. Which is what Kelly and Mark were doing when Kelly told her audience and viewers that things would never have gotten to that point for them because Mark solves every conflict with sex. Excuse me, “sexy time.”

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are sharing their tips for a long — and happy — romance.

The couple, who have been married since 1996, opened up about their relationship during Monday’s episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, where Mark, 50, was filling in for Ryan Seacrest as guest co-host.

While discussing the new HBO series Scenes from a Marriage, Ripa, 50, said her love life with Mark is much different from what the characters in the miniseries — which follows a couple struggling to keep their relationship intact — experience.

“I was like, none of this would ever be happening in the Mark Consuelos household, because he would have nipped all of this in the bud immediately,” Ripa said, referring to the second episode of Scenes from a Marriage.

While series stars Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac deal with tension and conflict in their fictional marriage, Ripa said she and her husband are quick to resolve any issues that come their way.

“He would have been like, ‘Oh, you’re upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don’t feel good about something? I’ll take care of that. Oh, you’re feeling like maybe you’re overworked? I got you. I know what you need,’ ” Ripa explained.

Spilling more details to the audience, Ripa added, “Because everything for Mark is settled with, everything is settled with —” before her husband cut in to add, “Love.”

Ripa corrected him, telling viewers, “Love and sexy time.”

While Mark was quick to clarify that “not everything” can be solved that way, Ripa cheekily added, “Just about almost everything.”

I know Kelly says this kind of stuff to get us talking about it. Few marriages would thrive if a partner was silenced with sex every time a conflict arose, so I’m sure this is typical Kelly exaggeration. But it was curious to see Mark cut her off. He knew what she was saying was going to make him look bad. Hopefully it was just a misguided joke. And I say this as a person who finds Mark incredibly hot. Having “sexy time” with him is something I have entertained, but not at the sacrifice of my feelings when I’m vulnerable. Note that Kelly didn’t say “we solve our problems” that way, but that it was “Mark Consuelos’” method. I guess that was part of only having “room for one man” in their relationship. But, they have 25 years together and they still love to work together so however they resolve their issues is working for them. And their oldest son, Michael, said their marriage has set the bar for him in many ways. He told ET, “They’re great, not just in like a relationship sense, but they’re great role models. I try to conduct myself the way I think they would,” which is a pretty glowing endorsement.

I will criticize Kelly’s comments in the context of Scenes from a Marriage, though. *MILD SPOILER* I was so afraid they were going to resort to sexy time, it was the only thing I was relieved about in that whole episode. I feel like Kelly missed the whole point of what she watched if she felt her discussion was a good follow-up to episode two.

Books Kelly Ripa

Kelly Ripa will show her ‘many dimensions and crackling wit’ in her new book


TV maven Kelly Ripa is releasing her first book next year. The book will be a memoir titled Live Wire and is being described as a collection of personal essays. Kelly plans to talk about, “childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career and the intersection of all the above.” In addition to stories from her multi-decade career from soap operas to reigning morning talk show queen, the book is supposedly going to pull back the curtain to show us the real Kelly and what “makes her tick.” It also sounds like she’s planning on dishing on all the sexist BS she’s dealt with. That’s probably got a few folks worried. Also, according to the write up for this book, all of this will be done with Kelly’s “many dimensions and crackling wit.” People has more about the book and what we can expect from it.

Kelly Ripa will be adding author to her list of accomplishments.

The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 50, will be publishing her first book, titled Live Wire, next year, it was announced on Tuesday.

Live Wire “will feature a collection of personal essays on childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career and the intersection of all the above — putting her thoughtfulness, assertiveness and deep understanding of the dynamics of gender and power on full display,” according to a description of the book.

It will include a “sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Kelly Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.”

Additionally, Ripa — who shares sons Michael, 24, and Joaquin, 18, and daughter Lola, 20, with husband Mark Consuelos — will show readers “what really makes her tick.”

“As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media,” the description continues.

“Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners,” it reads.

Ripa’s upcoming project is also teased to be “surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor … Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen — a very wise woman who has something to say.”

[From People]

When Kelly spoke to Parade last year, she mentioned that she had been writing quite a bit. She also said that she hoped to write when she eventually gets out from in front of the camera. So, it sounds like Kelly didn’t have a ghostwriter for Live Wire. I do, in fact, find Kelly funny. I’m not always down with everything she does for humor, like throwing her kids under the bus for a laugh, but I do think she’s witty. So, I’m sure I’ll find the book humorous.

I don’t doubt Kelly and Mark both have their fair share of stories from the industry. Plus, they have a 20-year marriage and three grown kids who still speak to them, which is a whole different perspective in Hollywood. It will be interesting to see how much of what went down with Michael Strahan makes it into her memoir. Or Regis Philbin, for that matter. We know her feelings were hurt when he didn’t tell her he was retiring, but she’d tick off a lot of folks speaking ill of him. However, in the description above, it sounds like Kelly has some stuff she wants to get off her chest. Maybe this is her exit plan from hosting duties. She’s hoping this will establish her as a writer enough that it won’t matter when she burns the place down.

Rumors swirl about Tamron Hall joining ‘Live’


Could Tamron Hall join Kelly Ripa on “Live With Kelly”?

A spy spotted the former “Today” host discussing her career over lunch with Discovery’s Henry Schleiff at Michael’s.

“He was encouraging her to join Kelly,” a spy told us. “He said, ‘Throw your hat in the ring! Lighten things up.’?”

CAA co-founder Bill Haber popped by to greet Hall, who sported a bright red power suit. She still hosts “Deadline Crime” on Schleiff’s ID network, but hasn’t announced her next move.

Hall’s rep declined to comment.

US: Kelly Ripa may quit Live if she doesn’t get one of her friends to co-host

2013 CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute
I saw Live with Michael and Kelly yesterday and while I haven’t watched this show enough to have a frame of reference it looked like things were back to normal. They came out holding hands, they were joking around about eyelash extensions and butt padding and they seemed to have a great rapport. At times Kelly looked uncomfortable but you had to be looking for it. If it wasn’t for all the stories you wouldn’t know that they were having issues and that Michael is leaving in just two weeks. They never brought it up. He’s leaving early though, whether that was due to Kelly throwing a fit or just an executive decision it’s hard to tell. Kelly’s issue seems to be more with the ABC executives who kept her out of the loop than with Michael, who was just following orders not to tell her. Kelly is said to still be playing hardball at ABC after staying away for five days. Us is reporting that she’s threatened to quit if she doesn’t get one of her friends, either Anderson Cooper or Andy Cohen, to cohost.

A source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Kelly Ripa “is talking about leaving” Live with Kelly and Michael after Michael Strahan announced his exit from the show for a permanent gig at Good Morning America. (Strahan was originally supposed to make the move in September, but the show announced this week that his last day on air will be May 13.)

Although Ripa, 45, returned to the show after a four-episode hiatus Tuesday, April 26, the source says she still feels “blindsided” that producers and Strahan, 44, broke the news to her just moments before the April 19 public announcement: “She considers it a sign of disrespect.”

Now, the 15-year Live vet will wait to see who producers seat beside her to help weigh her options for the future. They’re considering actor Jerry O’Connell, says the source, but Ripa “hopes Anderson Cooper or Andy Cohen gets the job.”

Unfortunately, it’s not likely that one of Ripa’s pals will come aboard, due to their prior commitments (the CNN journalist is covering the election and the Watch What Happens Live host is under contract with Bravo), so the show may not go on for Ripa. Says the source, “Unless one of them can come on, she doesn’t really want to do it.”

[From US Magazine]

This is likely a negotiation tactic to make sure that Kelly has a say this time, because if she really means this it’s short-sighted for a couple of reason. One, just because she’s good friends with someone (she has known both Cooper and Cohen for years) does not mean they’re the best choice for a co-host. Working with a friend can bring up all sorts of problems you wouldn’t have with someone you only know in a professional capacity. And two, both of those guys are super busy with their own shows as US points out. This sounds like Kelly is just trying to get her way, but keep in mind that it could also be a planted story meant to make her look like a diva. We know the network is not above that, think of how TMZ got the news that Kelly’s finances are overextended.

People reports that both Cooper and Cohen will come on as guest hosts following Strahan’s exit and that additional hosts will include Josh Groban and Seth Meyers. It’s unknown when a permanent host will be chosen and a source tells People “They’re prepared to keep cycling people through even if its not resolved by the fall.

E! Online has a think piece about this while debacle. (I really like their editorials lately, they seem to be going in a new direction.) They have quotes from a media expert who says that the way this has played out so far “it looks like Kelly won” against the network. Their source also gives ABC credit for letting Kelly say her piece at the beginning of her return show and not trying to censor or pre-tape her remarks. Also, Bellamy Young of “Scandal” was a guest on Tuesday’s show and she said that although there was tension backstage it all felt completely professional during her interview.

Kathy Lee Gifford, who was replaced by Kelly on Live 15 years ago after she put in 15 years with Regis, has some advice for Kelly which sounds like delicious shade. She said “Be totally professional. I would keep anything that is going on between you private. It’s nobody’s business but yours. But always, always be professional at your job. That’s what you’re hired to do.” You know Kathy does not consider it professional to take a bunch of days off work and then insist that a friend be hired to work with you.

Kelly Ripa raves about Botox again: ‘It’s cut my getting ready time in half’

Kelly Ripa

I’ve been a Kelly Ripa fan for a long time, but I’m still a little irritated at her for assuring James Franco that everyone hits on teenagers online. I’ll try to put that aside for this discussion of Botox, which is everywhere all the time. My dentist sends out email invites to his little Botox parties. His staff serves mimosas and inject that toxin like it’s something fun to do. It kinda creeps me out, and I will never RSVP for that mess.

Kelly has spoken before about her adoration for Botox. In 2012, she admitted to erasing her frown lines with a touch of Botox every seven months. Last year, she admitted to injecting it in her pits to keep from sweating too much. That makes sense for a television career, but it doesn’t sound healthy. We sweat for a reason. Does the sweat simply come out of other parts of the body if you disable your armit sweat glands? Kelly’s still talking about the ‘tox. She told Andy Cohen that Botox has transformed her life. For real:

Her must-have beauty product: “Botox. And that’s pretty much it. Botox has changed my life. It’s cut my getting ready time in half. Because suddenly my eyelids are no longer resting on my eyelashes!”

[From Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live]

Kelly did look cute during her chat with Andy Cohen. She was on the show with Anderson Cooper, and they played the “who’s the mystery caller?” game. You can see a video clip here. It only took the Coop a few seconds to realize Cher was on the phone. Of course.

Kelly’s Botox logic makes sense, right? Kelly doesn’t apply as much makeup as she otherwise would because the Botox is working its magic around her eyes. I think she probably gets it in several other places too. She’s looking a little frozen lately. Her hubby, Mark Consuelos, looks so permanently young that he probably gets injections as well.

Hayden Panettiere Announces Her Engagement On TV While Holding A Snake

hayden panettiere live kelly and michael engaged snake

Hayden Panettiere is officially engaged to her super tall boyfriend, boxer Wladimir Klitschko. While it was known she was engaged, she hadn’t made a public statement. She sure fixed that. She announced the engagement on Live with Kelly and Michael, but gave us all a dash of Britney 2001 by draping a snake over her shoulders. I guess that’s one way to get people to look at your hands. According to USA Today, she wore the boa to freak out Michael Strahan. That’s when Kelly said,

“I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger,” said Kelly. “I’m not sure if you want to announce anything … Does that signify anything? Is that a promise of something?”

Panettiere responded coyly, “It might be … I mean, I think it speaks for itself.”

Kelly then got more direct, asking, “Are you engaged?” and Hayden replied, “I am.”

Congrats to the adorably height mismatched pair!
