There's no doubt Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos make Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey appointment television. In fact, the couple are such fans of the series that they offered to participate in Andy Cohen's "Housewives Playhouse" segment on Watch What Happens Live, impersonating none other than Teresa and Joe Giudice.
"I feel more of a connection with Joe Gorga, but now -- the moment I'm in -- I'm more of a Joe Giudice," Consuelos, 41, told Cohen on Sunday's WWHL, which aired after the explosive RHONJ finale featuring a confrontation between Melissa Gorga and Giudice over Giudice's plan to insinuate Gorga was once a stripper.
Watch above as Live! With Kelly and Michael's Ripa, 41, and her hubby of 16 years get into character to deliver a scene in which Giudice describes feeling "ambushed" by former friend Jacqueline Laurita, only to have it fall on her husband's deaf ears.
Joked Ripa: "This is how Mark deals with me in our marriage. When I watched that scene [originally], I was like 'I'm not alone!'"
Watch What Happens Live airs weeknights at 11 p.m. (EST) on Bravo.
