Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have been married for over two decades. That’s dog years in Hollywood. The couple has been the subject of divorce rumors. However, that doesn’t stop them from talking about their relationship. Kelly Ripa and Mark are the type of couple that plays together and works together. After all, they met on the set of All My Children. Kelly invited had Mark on as a co-host on Live With Kelly before it became Live With Kelly And Ryan.
Sometimes the couple shares too much about their relationship. They want everyone to know that they’re still for one another. Kelly Ripa spoke out about Mark Consuelos’ odd post-sex behavior. In an episode of Live With Kelly, Ripa claimed he acts “mean” to her after sex. It’s so intense between the two that he feels the need to rage or smoke a cigarette.
“When there’s special married couple time in our house – do you know what I’m talking about? Because there’s kids watching, so I’m just going to say, let’s call it special grownup time. He’s immediately mean to me afterwards, and I don’t like that!” she said, according to Us Weekly. “I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me. You know what I mean? Like irritated.”
Consuelos could only laugh. He defended himself saying that he can’t be “mean” if he’s asleep after they make love. Ripa backtracked and said she was only joking, and then clarified that he wasn’t necessarily “mean,” but that he acts “disinterested” in her afterwards. But, Consuelos has a different story to tell. He claims that he’s very “satisfied” and is just so content that he happens to fall asleep. This bedroom reveal was awkward, even for the audience to listen to.
Kelly Ripa shared more about their bedroom habits on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live. When she visited the clubhouse, she says the more they make love, the better their marriage is.
“I fundamentally believe that the more you do it, the more you do it, the less you do it, the less you do it,” she said, according to E! News. “We just like each other a lot. I love my husband. I think he’s awesome. We’ve been together a really long time. We try to do spicy things together all the time.”
When it comes to their actual sleeping habits, they couldn’t be any more different. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kelly says her husband has “markolepsy,” which means that he falls asleep everywhere. On the other hand, Kelly says that she only needs “five hours of sleep,” which makes sense. She’s so hyper on her morning talk show that it can be downright annoying.
In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Ripa says she goes to sleep at 1:00 a.m. and will wake up two hours later. She’s already reaching for her phone and getting her kids off to school. If she finds herself having trouble sleeping at night, then Ripa will fall asleep while watching TV.
Kelly Ripa appears high strung on her talk show. But, she says that she likes playing the role of happy homemaker. She told Good Housekeeping that she likes to make Mark breakfast in bed every weekend. They even end up staying in bed since they like to brag about their lovemaking so much.
Here’s something else you probably didn’t know about them. After Mark and Kelly met back in 1995, they eloped in Las Vegas on May 1, 1996. The rest is Hollywood couple history. Kelly Ripa sometime regrets the idea of not having a lavish wedding, but she loves how low-key they did it, according to Fame10.com. The couple moved so fast that they welcomed their first child, Michael, in 1997. Whatever they’re doing, it seems to be working so far. Come back to CDL for all your Kelly Ripa news and updates!
