Kelly Ripa’s sex story will be featured in her upcoming memoir, where she describes passing out while having sex with her husband in 1997 and waking up in the hospital.
“Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories” is scheduled to be released on Sept. 27 but Ripa shared a few juicy tidbits with her fans. Ripa says she was in the throws of passion one minute, and in the emergency room the next. She added that her husband, Mark Consuelos, took time to put some clothes on before taking her to the hospital. “He dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need,” she joked.
Ripa said it was only six months after she had given birth to their first child when the incident happened. Doctors determined that she was suffering from two ovarian cysts which caused her to pass out during sex.
“Sex can be so traumatic I think, and yet one of us is completely undaunted,” Ripa wrote in her memoir. “There he is, happily munching on the saltines now and ordering a second apple juice. Mark could be at a movie, or a spa. Instead, I’m flat on my back wondering when the other two cysts will burst.”
Ripa recalled looking down at herself while in the hospital, only to realize that Consuelos had dressed her in a 1980s French-cut leotard, oversized track pants, and “f**k me” Manolo Blahniks.
“It’s still baffling to me to this day that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me,” Ripa said.
Kelly and Mark have been married for 26 years and share three children.
