Kelly Ripa is all about turning down the heat for the sake of daytime television.
Ahead of her husband Mark Consuelos officially joining Live! as co-host following Ryan Seacrest‘s departure, the 52-year-old made a quip about keeping their relationship as professional as possible.
During the April 6 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kelly shared her lighthearted take on the scandal between former GMA3 co-hosts Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes that took center stage at ABC late last year. And though she agreed the ordeal was “compelling,” she joked that she and Mark, also 52, “have taken a vow of chastity while we’ll be working together.”
“Because I know how ABC does not like that, you know, TV partners banging on the side,” Kelly—who shares kids Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 20, with Mark—added. “So, we promise, no banging on the side.”
But jokes aside, the daytime talk show host has previously been open about how she and her husband of 26 years keep their romantic life enticing.
