Mark Consuelos Speaks Out After Kelly Ripa’s Bikini Backlash

Over the weekend, Mark Consuelos shared a “sexy” bikini photo of wife Kelly Ripa, who has been criticized by body shamers for being too thin.

Days later, Consuelos defended Kelly in the comments section, writing, “I wanted to take a couple of days to weigh in. Probably should’ve earlier arguably. But I wanted to be above it. Well, not I’m not. I posted this pic of the women I most admire.”

“She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come,” Mark continued. “If that offends you in some way, if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you’re suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it. To all the males that had something negative to say. I suggest you bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you. I’m going to get back to my vacation now.. thanks for allowing me to express myself.”
