Ryan Seacrest is Kelly Ripa‘s work husband but that doesn’t mean their relationship doesn’t take A LOT of work. When she’s not with her real hubby, hunky “Riverdale” star Mark Consuelos, she’s putting just as much effort into her “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” co-star.
Last week, the TV duo were separated when Ryan Seacrest missed two days of work due to a health scare. The 45-year-old star wasn’t allowed to come back to “LIVE” until he got his COVID-19 results back.
The network kept the reasoning for his two-day absence a secret, leaving many to speculate that he was sick with Coronavirus. Ryan Seacrest joined Kelly Ripa on the stage for “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” on Wednesday, October 21, and finally disclosed what went down.
“Thank you for covering, following the strict protocol,” he told Kelly Ripa. “Got the negative test results for COVID. Makes you feel very good.” Kelly Ripa then addressed Seacrest and made it clear that she “didn’t have any doubts” about her co-host’s condition.
They enjoyed the rest of the week together, including a pimple-popping session from Dr. Pimple Popper herself, but all that came to a halt following a weekend of separation. On Monday, Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa had a marriage-worthy squabble backstage before heading out to host their morning show.
In a hilarious video post-show, shared on the official “LIVE” Instagram page, Kelly Ripa is heard trying to tell Ryan Seacrest a story to which he completely ignores her and rudely walks away.
In the clip, Kelly Ripa is discussing a belly ache she’s experiencing due to going off her vegetarian diet and eating meat during a Sunday family dinner with her children. While explaining the story to the “American Idol” judge, he ditched her mid-sentence.
That’s when Kelly Ripa stopped talking, looked at the camera, and complained about her work husband, admitting that he’s just as bad as her real one when it comes to listening. “He doesn’t listen,” Kelly joked to the camera.
“He’s like my other husband. I have two husbands. Now two men that don’t listen to me,” she added to which everyone behind the camera began laughing. Ryan Seacrest heard that and immediately responded with his actions, not words.
While Kelly Ripa has two men in her life to juggle, there’s only one keeps her happy between the sheets. The 50-year-old recently left everyone wide-eyed when she showed off a NSFW photo of Mark Consuleos packing heat where it counts!
