But it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies — especially that one time Mark Consuelos really thought Kelly Ripa cheated and boy was he so, so, so wrong.
That’s right, Mark of all people was a little green with jealousy.
In Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue’s new book, What Makes a Marriage Last, both Kelly and Mark recalled a time when the Mark actor attempted to catch the talk show host in the act after he had “a really bad feeling.”‘
“After we were married, I was doing a show in Boston, and I couldn’t get a hold of her all day,” he said.
And since the two did not have cellphones back then, Mark decided to book a flight to New York to give Kelly a surprise visit.
“[I] called her from the plane and asked her what she was doing that night,” he said
Kelly, meanwhile, was busy cleaning their bathroom but Mark did not trust her.
“Apparently he thought that sounded very fishy. He wanted to catch me,” she said.
Mark even informed the doorman to call up their apartment and tell Kelly that there was a flower delivery.
“I’m excited because I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, he’s sending me flowers!’” Kelly said.
Unbeknownst to her, it was actually Mark to come up and check to see if she had been cheating on him with someone else.
After Mark searched the house and found it empty, he admitted he felt “horrible” for suspecting his wife of cheating and knew he was in the “wrong” for assuming the worst.
“[I’m] less jealous these days,” he said.
