Kelly Ripa does not want Mark Consuelos to remarry

In Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly Ripa discussed the scenario after her death. This conversation came up while talking about the TLC show MILF Manor, the premise of which is that a certain number of mother-son duos would find love under the same roof.

Ripa said,

“If something happened to Mark, [our kids] would expect me to also die. You know what I mean?—The idea of him picking up a life and carrying on would be very out of the question.”

Kelly Ripa made it very clear that anything along the tangent of remarriage is out of the question. She also shared that her daughter who is now 21, Lola Consuelos also shares similar thoughts with her mother. She said,

“Lola, I remember one day, one of her friend’s parents got divorced and the father had gotten remarried. And Lola was like, ‘Oh my gosh, can you imagine?’ And I was like, ‘Well, that happens. Sometimes that happens. People move on.’ And she was like, ‘If you and dad ever got divorced and he tried to get remarried, I would make his life a living hell.'”

Ripa then also re-iterated that she absolutely cannot imagine Mark Consuelos dating someone who is significantly younger than him, someone like her daughter in relation to the TLC show’s premise.

“I can’t imagine you dating a younger person. Obviously, younger, but not our daughter’s age. I just can’t picture it.”

Consuelos then  reassured her by saying,

“I would never date again, if something happened to you. I would be like one of those ladies in southern Italy who wore black and a veil for the rest of my life,”

Although the two seem strong sometimes their actions feel like overcompensation to hide their alleged marriage troubles.
