Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos are fighting over making their sex life public! No, there’s no homemade sex tape at the center of the dispute. The battle centers on how much sex to include in a new TV sitcom loosely based on their real-life experiences, say insiders.
The couple, who met on the set of “All My Children,” are developing the comedy about life in the soap opera world for the new CW network.
Kelly wants to include racy romantic encounters that her hubby finds embarrassing.
“She wants the show to be rowdy and a little risque,” a source told The ENQUIRER.
“Mark is afraid his wife may take things too far, especially as far as the sex is concerned.
“He fears it could hold him up to ridicule. Mark’s told her it’s taken him a long time to establish a career as a serious actor, and he’s just started to hit his stride with roles in the Lifetime series ‘Missing’ and last summer’s World War II film, ‘The Great Raid.'”
Kelly, 36, and Mark, 35 — who’ve been married 10 years — are butting heads over their creative differences.
And it’s no wonder Mark is worried, because the lovebirds’ passion on the set of “All My Children” became the stuff of legend.
“When they first started working together, their love scenes on the set frequently spilled over into real life,” disclosed the source.
“And Kelly liked to come on like a vixen, making sexually suggestive remarks and plenty of double entendres.
“If Kelly’s new show is one-tenth as sexy as her real-life affair with Mark was, it will be red hot”…and it will leave Mark red-faced with embarrassment!
