Kelly Ripa: ‘Insanely jealous’ Mark Consuelos made marriage ‘very hard’

Mark Consuelos jokes about getting paid to talk to Kelly Ripa on ‘Live’
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos keep their sex life spicy when they spend time apart.
When the actor was in Canada filming “Riverdale” for 10 months in 2020, he and Ripa developed “sexual rituals” that were “ludicrous over FaceTime.”
The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host, 52, joked on Wednesday’s premiere of her “Let’s Talk Off Camera” podcast that she got “really close to [herself]” during their virtual rendezvous.
“I became so alarmed at my appearance over FaceTime that I started rigging the computer to hang from a ladder,” Ripa recalled.
“I hung the computer over a ladder so that I could look up to Mark and he did not have to see what gravity was actually doing [to me].”
She and Consuelos have been married since May 1996 and are now empty nesters as their three children — son Michael, 25, daughter Lola, 21, and son Joaquin, 20 — are all away at college.
The “Pitch” alum told Ripa that the only “potential dealbreaker” in their relationship as it stands would be if she “cut [him] off sexually.”
He amended, “Unless you had some type of medical condition where, like, you lost the use of [your body].”

When Ripa noted that they had a sneak preview of abstinence when she went through menopause, Consuelos joked, “I didn’t give you a break. There have never been months [between having sex] unless I was in another country.”
Later in the episode, Ripa poked fun at her husband, saying he only “recently” learned the difference between sex and intimacy after 26 years of marriage.
“I’m going to blame it on the fact that I traveled so much,” Consuelos replied. “A lot had to happen in the time that I was home.
“I wanted to get intimacy in and the sex in,” he explained. “So they became one and the same.”
Ripa joked, “You wanted to get it in.”
The couple, who were joined by their marriage counselor for the candid conversation, also spoke about how “insanely jealous” Consuelos acted early in their romance.
“[It was] a hard pill to swallow,” Ripa told listeners. “It’s very hard being married to somebody who is jealous.”
Their joint episode dropped one month after news broke that Consuelos will be joining Ripa on “Live!” in April once her current co-host, Ryan Seacrest, exits the talk show.
