Boy does Kelly Ripa have a story for the world. The well-known daytime talk show host has a book forthcoming, Live Wire Long-Winded Short Stories, and one of the stories she has included has created quite a stir. As an example, the Haute Living article, titled “Don t Let Your Husband Pick Your Death Clothes,” recalls when Ripa married All My Children costar Mark Consuelos shortly after she gave birth to their second son in 1997.
Ripa explains, “She and Consuelos were having a great time together, but Ripa was hit with a ruptured ovarian cyst that made her black out.” Afterwards, she had to be escorted to the emergency room. While her husband was eating a snack, Ripa went into the 1980s style of French-cut leotard and red Manolo Blahnik shoes her husband found incredibly funny.
“My eyes shift between the fluffy pictures on the screen, the remainders of my ovarian victimizer, and Mark cheerfully nibbling ceaselessly. Sex can be so awful I think, but one of us is totally steadfast,” Ripa writes in her book of genuine brief tales. “He is right there, cheerfully chomping on the saltines now and requesting a second squeezed apple. Imprint could be at a film, or a spa. All things being equal, I’m level on my back pondering when the other two blisters will explode.”
“Likewise, here is my better half, who is, might I venture to say, snappy, fashionable consistently, but he dressed me like a dime store whore in my period of scarcity. It’s actually puzzling to me right up to the present day that this is the best outfit for the day that he could find for me, to the place where, when I was on the cot, I assumed I was dreaming; I was having a bad dream,” she added. “I didn’t understand I had come to.”
Ripa’s book is planned to be distributed on September 27.
