When things get tense in Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' household, the clothes apparently come off.
The couple, who've been married for 25 years, were discussing the HBO miniseries "Scenes From A Marriage" while Mark substituted for Ryan Seacrest on "Live" on Sept. 20.
"I was like, none of this would ever be happening in the Mark Consuelos household, because he would have nipped all of this in the bud immediately," Kelly said, referring to the show, which chronicles the demise of a relationship. "He would have been like, 'Oh, you're upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don't feel good about something? I'll take care of that.'"
While comparing their real-life marriage to the charaters' relationship on the HBO show, Kelly saw little resemblance, noting, "Because everything for Mark is settled with, everything is settled with…"
"Love," Mark quickly chimed in. Kelly agreed, "Love and sexy time."
Mark and Kelly later discussed one particular scene in which the "Riverdale" star assumed the on-screen couple would have sex.
"Yeah, but you think that about everything," Kelly replied. "There are scenes in 'The Godfather,' and he's like, 'I thought for a minute they were going to [do it].'"
Mark's response: "Listen, that's how I deal with stress."
