Kelly Ripa is a dynamo by any standard. The mother of three is a workout fiend (see link below), a perennial Emmy winner, and TV friend to millions every morning. Ripa’s whirlwind schedule and big ambition are legendary — it’s the fact that she really does it all that makes her an authentic personality for her fans. Ripa’s deal is that she keeps it real, at least as much as anybody who makes eight figures a year can keep it real. But here’s the thing, even at $17 million bucks a year (or whatever giant number it is now) the money doesn’t make Ripa immune to some of the things we regular people have to deal with.
Yes, Ripa has a gorgeous and attentive husband, soap opera heartthrob Mark Consuelo. But once Mark falls asleep, he snores. Like, really loud. And Ripa can’t stop it even if she could easily try to muffle him with thousand-dollar-bills. So like anybody who sleeps with a snorer, Ripa is tormented by the very thing she loves the most — her husband. Already a “sleep struggler,” Ripa now has the double sleep trouble of Mark’s snoring to contend with — all before her 6:30 am wakeup call. Ugh. Ripa told Women’s Health Magazine that she “found that this year Mark took up snoring as a hobby.” This wouldn’t be too bad if Mark weren’t so dedicated! Most people take up a hobby and drop it after the initial enthusiasm wanes. But Mark is known to stick to what he starts! Good luck, Kelly. Live with Kelly and Ryan airs 9 am weekdays on ABC.
Ripa’s abs aren’t getting any rest either!
