In her yet-to-be-released memoir, “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories,” Kelly Ripa shares a hospital horror story that concludes with a nightmarish style jump scare. In an excerpt shared by Haute Living, Ripa recounts how she fainted while having sex with Mark Consuelos and came to in the hospital. She learned that the culprits of her coital collapse were two ovarian cysts. “My eyes shift between the fuzzy images on the screen, the remnants of my ovarian tormentor, and Mark happily snacking away,” Ripa writes. “Mark could be at a movie, or a spa. Instead, I’m flat on my back wondering when the other two cysts will burst.”
In his rush to get Ripa to the hospital, Consuelos threw together a slapdash ensemble that his stylish wife was appalled to wake up in: a pair of his athletic pants, a leotard, and Manolo Blahnik heels. “He dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need … When I was on the stretcher, I thought I was dreaming; I was having a nightmare. I didn’t realize I had come to,” Ripa writes.
This isn’t the only time Ripa has shared an embarrassing sex story. On “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” she and Consuelos revealed that their daughter, Lola, walked in on them having sex on Lola’s birthday. Ripa actually joked about being unconscious, telling their horrified daughter, “I’m being resuscitated!”
