'Sex can be so traumatic': Kelly Ripa says she once passed out while making love to her husband Mark Consuelos
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: TV show host and actress Kelly Ripa recently revealed that she had once passed out while making love to her husband Mark Consuelos, in her forthcoming book 'Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories' on sale from September 28.
In her book, the talk show host writes that the incident occurred in the year 1997. This was almost six months after the birth of her first child, while she and her husband, Consuelos, were indulging in an early-morning sex session.
She said that she lost consciousness due to two large cysts that were growing on her ovaries. “My eyes shift between the fuzzy images on the screen, the remnants of my ovarian tormentor, and Mark happily snacking away,” she wrote in her book, recalling herself waking up in the hospital and being told she had two ovarian cysts, which caused her to faint.
“Sex can be so traumatic I think, and yet one of us is completely undaunted,” Ripa writes of the moment she regained consciousness. “There he [Consuelos] is, happily munching on the saltines now and ordering a second apple juice. Mark could be at a movie or a spa. Instead, I’m flat on my back wondering when the other two cysts will burst," the 51-year-old added.
The star revealed in an interview with Haute Living magazine that Consuelos quickly dressed her and rushed her to the hospital.
Moving on, she said that she was mortified at the medical facility after she realized that her her Riverdale star husband grabbed the closest items he could find, a 1980s-style French-cut leotard, red "f**k me" Manolo Blahnik stilettos, and Consuelos’s old sweatpants.
“Here is my husband, who is, dare I say, stylish, well-dressed at all times, and yet he dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need,” Ripa says. “It’s still baffling to me to this day that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me, to the point where, when I was on the stretcher, I thought I was dreaming. I was having a nightmare. I didn’t realize I had come to,” she added.
Ripa has always been in highlight for showing off her sultry side in recent times. She hit headlines last year after sharing a photo of her husband checking out her butt.
