Live with Kelly and Mark host, Kelly Ripa lives in a wonderful mansion with her loving husband, Mark Consuelos. She has three nice adult children, and the world is her oyster. However, getting there was sometimes brutal.
Live Kelly Ripa Put In The Hard Yards For Her Lifestyle
People might imagine that being in the entertainment industry is a breeze. Wave at crowds, sign some autographs and eat in the best restaurants. However, it’s not like that all the time. When Ryan Seacrest chatted with his old morning talk show partner, he described how a summer vacation made him think of the hectic hours he works.
Kelly Ripa seems to have a good relationship with Mark Consuelos. Mind you, she pretends that they clash a lot, which earns her laughs on Live. However, filming often took him away from home. Sometimes, for months at a time. Meanwhile, her own job means very early mornings. Notably, she claims she’s not an early-morning person. So, those good salaries seem to be earned with blood, sweat, and tears. However, it can be brutal as well.
Entertainment Careers Can Be Brutal
On her Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa podcast, the former All My Children star chatted with Hilarie Burton. It came on Wednesday when the duo discussed raising children. Going back down memory lane, the Live with Kelly and Mark host revealed something personal. Her son Michael, who arrived in 1997 was her first child. However, she only had “nine days” to get over the birth before she had to return to filming for All My Children.
Live’s Kelly Ripa talked about being body-shamed. Page Six cited her as saying that it wasn’t a nice time for her. If you watch the ABC talk show, you will know that Mark’s wife seems a bit sensitive with comments about her body. So she probably felt terrible when she returned to film for her role as Hayley Vaughan. It all seemed rather brutal.
Live’s Kelly Ripa Shamed By Wardrobe People
Mark’s wife recalled how “brutal” some production staff were. Behind the scenes doesn’t necessarily mean sweetness and light. She told Hilarie Burton what went down.
The wardrobe people were like, ‘We thought you’d be smaller by now. I was like, ‘Well, I’m not going to be smaller anytime soon. I don’t know much but here’s what I do know. This looks like it’s going to be here for a while.
She also told Nataie, “I didn’t recognize my body! I was on a soap and I had to go back to work 9 days after [childbirth.]” She added, “It was brutal!”
