Kelly Ripa: ‘Insanely jealous’ Mark Consuelos made marriage ‘very hard’
Kelly Ripa called out her husband, Mark Consuelos, for making their marriage extremely difficult at the beginning.
“It’s very hard being married to somebody who is jealous,” Ripa said in a preview clip of her new Sirius XM podcast “Let’s Talk Off Camera,” before adding that Consuelos’ jealousy was a “hard pill to swallow.”
Ripa — who married the “Riverdale” alum in May 1996 — recalled that her husband revealed his jealous tendencies just one week after their wedding.
“We went to this Italian restaurant and the waiter was this very cute old man,” Ripa, 52, began. “He was definitely in his 70s if not 80s, and he leaned down.”
Kelly went on to say that Consuelos, 51, “picked a horrible fight” with her after she gave the waiter her order in a “very smiley way.”
After acknowledging that he remembered picking the fight, the actor joked to his wife that he was “pretty insane” at age 25, and while the “jealousy thing” followed the actor for “a while,” he is “not jealous anymore.”
