Mark Consuelos was the insured one in the relationship
Kelly Ripa and her husband and now co-host Mark Consuelos shared the struggles they faced when they started dating years back. They have been married for well over two decades now, and shares three children who are also all grown up now. On a recent episode of the podcast Let’s Talk Off Camera, Ripa shared,
“My biggest complaint about you over the course of our marriage — and this is not recent because it definitely changed — but you used to be insanely jealous and that was a hard pill to swallow,”
The problem was so severe that he had to go to therapy for it. She then recalled an incident that was the last straw for the morning talk show host. She said,
“It’s very hard being married to somebody who is jealous. It was our first week of marriage, because we didn’t take our honeymoon until later. You were working and I went to visit you in Boston,–We went to this Italian restaurant and the waiter was like a very cute old man, he’s definitely in his 70s, if not 80s. He leaned down and he said, ‘And for the principessa?’ I thought it was so cute that this little old man called me a princess, and I looked at him and I gave him my order in a very smiley way. And he walked away and you picked a horrible fight.”
The man was jealous of a seventy-year-old waiter and then picked up an ugly fight with his wife for ordering in a very sweet way and smiling at the waiter’s jokes.

Mark Consuelos admitted to his flaw
After Kelly Ripa narrated the story, Consuelos jumped on to admit his mistake and let everyone know he has changed a great deal from what he was back then. He confessed,
“I remember that,–Look, at age 25, I was pretty insane. But that jealousy thing definitely followed me for a while. I’m not jealous anymore.”
To which his wife replied,
“so grateful that you’re not.”
He then further added,
“It’s ugly,–As ugly as it feels to the person who has to be on the receiving end of it, it’s such an ugly feeling inside. If this is any consolation, you know you’re being crazy. The jealous person knows that this is wrong and it’s ugly, but they can’t help it.”
The new co-host then also admitted,
“I wanted to do some work on myself,–and that was one of the major things that I needed to work on because it was getting in the way.”
The pair is now perfect, and it took them a lot of hard work to reach where they are now. The two are now empty nesters, and realize they will again have plenty of time for themselves so the show came at the perfect time for their rescue.
