Kelly Ripa Sheds Tears While Laughing Over Husband Mark Consuelos’ Censored Crotch on 'Live With Kelly & Mark'
Kelly Ripa just couldn't stop guffawing at her husband Mark Consuelos' picture when it was featured on the May 9, 2023 episode of Live With Kelly & Mark. Ripa laughed so hard that she started shedding tears at her husband's pictures which showed him with a censorship pixelation over his crotch. Consuelos began the live broadcast by talking about a recent trip to Campobasso, Italy where he visited a football team that he and his wife had just invested in, and later hurt himself while playing on the Stadio Nuovo Romagnoli field.
"I think I hurt myself," Consuelos remarked about the footage from the trip, which later cut to him laying on an examination table as a physical therapist worked with him. "So very embarrassing," Consuelos added. "I hurt myself kicking the ball, so, I'm here with the physio for our soccer team....he's going to try to fix me up." For his medical visit, Consuelos can be seen wearing a pair of shorts that was incredibly tight and the show decided to blur out his nether regions for the final cut before airing.

“Are you crying?” Consuelos, 52 asked Ripa when the show cut back to the live segment. “No, I’m laughing because of the pixelation of your crotch,” Ripa continued snickering while wiping away tears of joy. "They didn't need to pixelate it but I see how everybody gets in an uproar if you see tight shorts so I figured just to play it safe," Consuelos told Ripa.
Ripa and Consuelos have been garnering a lot of media attention lately for several other reasons as well. According to Page Six, last week the duo was blasted as “pathetic” for pre-recording episodes of their live show at least two months before they were scheduled to air. But a production source clarified that pre-recording parts of the show is a common practice and they've been doing it even before Consuelos arrived to take over hosting duties.
In one of the previous episodes, Ripa and Consuelos even discussed the popularity of butt implant reversals and he asked Ripa, "Would you do something like that? Would you do the big butt thing?” Ripa appeared visibly confused and tossed the question back to her husband, demanding, “You tell me.” Consuelos laughed it off awkwardly, saying, “I don’t know.” The duo has been hosting the show successfully and having a gala time after Consuelos joined in, replacing former host Ryan Seacrest in April. Live With Kelly & Mark is available for viewing on weekdays at 9 a.m. ET/PT on ABC.
