Kelly Ripa made it crystal-clear today. The talk show queen told 45-year-old “Live!” co-host Ryan Seacrest that loneliness is “amazing” – this, amid major headlines the 50-year-old is making via husband Mark Consuelos’ penis drama. If you aren’t up-to-date, late October brought somewhat of a penis-gate as a “packing heat” snap of Mark in a “CHiPS” costume saw Kelly address her husband’s manhood size. Tuesday’s video from “Live!” kept 49-year-old “Riverdale” star Mark out of it, but it did see Kelly making some confessions. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. It comes as Kelly herself experiences a big distance, with 1996-married husband Mark even missing her 50th birthday last month as he shoots CW series “Riverdale” in Vancouver, Canada – some 3,000 miles away from the couple’s NYC base.
The video, showing Kelly and Ryan socially distanced on set, came with the “American Idol” host joking about loneliness – “I’m well studied in loneliness, so any tips….” Ryan began, with Kelly quickly interrupting him to say:
“Loneliness is INCREDIBLE. Loneliness is amazing, let me tell you something..”
Keep scrolling for the video. The big bulge drama, kicking off in the last week of October, began when a fan noticing Mark in his ultra-tight pants decided to comment. “Mark is packing a gun in his cop uniform,” was one reply, with another mentioning the “elephant in the room LOL.”
“OMG your husband’s basket,” a third wrote, but it wasn’t just the fans, with Kelly and Mark getting involved.
Mark then swooped in to reply: “Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing the bulging effect.” Kelly’s response after the video.
Kelly, whose “thirst trap” photos of Mark this year left 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace “disgusted,” replied to her man. She responded: “Ummmmm baby are you seeing shadows?”
If you don’t live inside Kelly’s Instagram, her 2.9 million followers get flirting and NSFW comments galore, with the Oscars 2020 bringing an under-skirt comment as Mark joked he’d “been there.” The couple, raising sons Michael and Joaquin, plus teen daughter Lola, also made headlines in February after Kelly’s workout video of Mark came captioned: “How bout a little #workout for the extremely thirsty.”

Kelly and Mark are now married over 24 years, proving that Hollywood marriages can last. The two eloped after meeting on the set of “All My Children,” with the lovebirds seemingly keeping it spicy between the sheets, as Kelly this year revealed:
“Like we were pliable to each other,” she said on “SiriusXM’s Quarantined with Bruce”, adding:
“We really, like, learned — we learned each other well and so with that comes a certain level of comfort and confidence and experimentation and just fun, like, we have fun.”
