On Wednesday, Kelly Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos came back to co-host “Live with Kelly” where he addressed her recent remarks about their sex life.
Nearly two weeks ago, Ripa said, "He’s immediately mean to me afterwards and I don’t like that. I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me, like, irritated. I’m like, ‘Oh, now you’re irritated?’ You were so loving three minutes ago!'”
Since then, things have changed for Kelly and Mark in the bedroom. She revealed, "There’s odd conversations like, ‘Do you want to watch 'The Real Housewives'?' 'What do you want to do?' ‘Would you like pizza?’ ‘Can I get you flowers?’”
At the time, Mark laughed off her comments, but had no idea it was going to be a newsworthy headline. He shared, "I fly to Dallas and my phone starts buzzing and people are like, ‘Dude, are you mean to your wife after you know?’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I get on set the next day, I’m shooting in Dallas, and the trending stories are on my news app on my iPhone and it comes up, 'Mark Consuelos is mean to his wife after… grownup time.' And I’m like, ‘Oh, my gosh, what?’”
Ripa apologized to her husband of 20 years, saying, "I’m sorry. I was joking. This is a funny, irreverent show — I didn’t realize it would become trending news.”
