Kelly Ripa “passed out” during sex with her husband.
The 51-year-old actress, who has been married to All My Children co-star Mark Consuelas since 1996 and has Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 19, with him, explained that she woke up. found herself in the emergency room early in her marriage during a fit of passion due to large ovarian cysts.
She said: “My eyes dart between the blurry images on the screen, the remains of my ovarian tormentor and Mark happily snacking. I think sex can be so traumatic and yet one of us is absolutely fearless.”
The Live with Kelly and Ryan host joked that while her husband turned up at her bedside “well dressed”, she dressed herself as a “penny shop hooker” because she thought she was having a nightmare.
In an excerpt from her forthcoming autobiography, Live Wire, she writes: “Also, here’s my husband, who is, dare I say, stylish, well-dressed at all times, and yet he dresses me like a dime-store prostitute. I am still perplexed that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me, to the point that when I was lying on the stretcher I thought I was dreaming; a nightmare I didn’t realize that I had come to my senses!”

Meanwhile, Kelly explained that she’s always more “impressed” by everyone else and because she’s “not used” to being around celebrities, this is someone who “doesn’t belong” in the room.
She said: “I was clearly the person who didn’t belong in that room because you know Mark was like, ‘You’re not bringing an autograph book to the party,’ and I was like, ‘What if someone’s weird in there?’ I’m not used to being around celebrities in the wild. In fact, I’m so used to it that in my mind I think of myself as Richard Gere’s co-star. To this day, I still respect Richard Gere. I do not know that I shall ever have so much comfort as to approach him again; it was such an important moment for me. And the fact that he couldn’t remember that I was even there tells you everything you need to know about my life. I I am always more impressed than everyone else.’
“Live Wire” is scheduled for release on September 27.
