Kelly Ripa ‘Broken’ Marriage And Injury Add More Drama To Epic Summer: Mark Consuelos Tore His Calf After Ripa Broke Her Foot
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ marriage is “broken.” A left foot injury and a calf tear have gotten the best of the married couple, and an Instagram photo has immortalized their unique bond.
Kelly Ripa, 44, host of morning talk show Live! with Kelly and Michael, is having a heckuva summer. In July, the TV star injured her left foot in dance class. Unfortunately for her family, few weeks later, her husband, Mark Consuelos, revealed his own injury on social media. Consuelos, also 44, shared that he tore a calf muscle.
The couple took to Instagram on Thursday to share their ordeal with fans. In the viral photo, Ripa and Consuelos can be seen sitting on a staircase looking sad with walking boots on their right feet. The mother of three wrote in the caption section:
“ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW??????????? WTF?????”
Consuelos, who also posted the image on his page, captioned it:
“Can’t make this sh#! Up. Small calf tear.”
The hilarious picture has even been dubbed Ripa’s “broken” marriage by some commentators on the Internet. Fans were quick to show them love and support. One person wrote:
Ha! You two are too cute! However, I had to read your caption twice, thought you were posting as a sad baby deer! With a “small calf tear”!
Another one added:
Similar situation happened to my husband and I a couple of years ago! It made the sex a little more interesting! Get better soon!
During an episode of her show, Ripa shared the background story for her foot injury. She said:
“I was in a dance class, like I typically, usually am, and somebody had left a weight on the floor. Usually what happens is you do dancing and then you do weights and then you put your weights back on your mat.”
The Hope & Faith star added:
“Somebody, I guess, either left it not on their mat or maybe kicked it when they were dancing. I don’t know. All I know is I did a jump — and in my mind, I am an incredible dancer, graceful as can be — and I landed on the weight and my foot went over and under the weight. It sounded like bubble wrap, you guys!”
Consuelos teased his wife of 19 years when all of this happened, and now, she is the one laughing. She stated:
“Mark is at the hospital with me and has never in 21 years felt the need to photograph me, videotape me, when I have full hair and makeup. But yesterday, he followed me around with a camera, he was never more alive, he loved this moment of suffering.”
