TV star Kelly Ripa and her husband, actor Mark Consuelos are now officially co-stars. Ripa recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and joked that she and her husband no longer sleep together as ABC doesn’t like their employees getting close off-screen.

Some wonder if this is a subtle hint that she might be facing some issues in her relationship with Consuelos. However, it was a subtle nod at T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach’s relationship as ABC fired them after their affair came into the limelight. They were removed from GMA3 because their relationship was “distracting” for their viewers, as per ABC.

During her latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, TV star Kelly Ripa joked that she no longer sleeps with her husband, Mark Consuelos. She said,

“Mark and I have taken a vow of chastity while we’ll be working together because I know how ABC does not like TV partners banging on the side.”

While this obviously seems like a joke about T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach’s affair that led to their removal from ABC’s GMA3, some people are coming up with theories that the two may be facing troubles in their marriage.

In November 2022, TV stars Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes’ affair went viral on social media. After a long investigation, ABC removed them from the show stating that their affair was “distracting” for their viewers, and gave them their separate severance packages before their exit.

Robach reportedly got more money than Holmes in the package for her work with the network. She joined ABC in 2012 and appeared in 20/20 along with GMA3. Kelly Ripa’s recent statement is a subtle nod to this as she also works under ABC and her relationship might also “distract” the viewers.

Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa’s relationship is one of the few relationships in the industry that have lasted for a very long time. They first met on the set of the popular daytime soap opera All My Children in 1995. They felt a connection and instantly started dating and finally got married in May 1996, in Las Vegas. The two share three kids, Michael Joseph Consuelos, Lola Consuelos, and Joaquin Antonio Consuelos. The two have been very candid about their s*x life.

The 52-year-old TV host once revealed that she doesn’t “get tired” of having s*x with her husband. Kelly Ripa previously hosted ABC’s Live! with Ryan Seacrest but in February, Seacrest announced his exit from the show and Consuelos replaced him.
