She also shared a photo of herself in a bikini next to Mark.

“I wanted to take a picture,” she said.

Turning to co-host Ryan Seacrest, she said: “You’ve seen this on social media before, but that’s all I have. That’s us,” she announced proudly as the crowd cheered and roared.

In the photo, Kelly was seen wearing skimpy yellow bikini top sunglasses alongside a shirtless Mark.

“Yes thanks, those are my real boobs,” Kelly said after audience clapping. “I know what you’re thinking,” she joked.

“That’s not a filter?” Kelly was asked offscreen.

“No, that’s not a filter, that’s just them! I feel like I have to preempt that because there could obviously be questions,” Kelly joked.

Ryan joked that Kelly looked “less enthusiastic” than Mark in the photo.

“I wasn’t even sure I was in the photo until we got home,” Kelly joked, as she wore sunglasses during the shoot.


Meanwhile, Kelly has thrown a major shadow at Ryan Seacrest in a new interview.

Host Andy began the interrogation by saying: “Kelly, you are in the unique position of having replaced your work husband Ryan Seacrest with your literal husband Mark Consuelos.

“So I hope you’ve updated your contacts before you accidentally send salacious messages to Seacrest!” He then joked before adding, “But first, let’s talk about the husbands! Choose your answers to my curious questions.”

“Who has the better style?” Andy asked when Kelly quickly replied, “Mark!”

“Who is more alert in the morning?” He then shot her and she immediately replied, “Ryan!”

She went on to admit that her husband has the “more infectious laugh” while Ryan is “better on social media.”

“Who gives better hugs?” Andy then asked, as Kelly fired back, “Mark, you know those answers!”

Andy then cheekily said, “Here, this I don’t know, it’s not in the script… who has a bigger cock?”

Kelly looked quite shocked at the question and just said, “You tell me!”

Andy went further and said, “Who’s a bigger d**k?” but Kelly quickly shut him down, telling him, “Oh neither, no d*c*s!”

Mark hosts Live! Full-time very soon after Ryan’s announcement in February that he was leaving the show.

The popular ABC show will be renamed Live with Kelly and Mark, Deadline reported, as Kelly’s husband takes Ryan’s place.

Ryan will be leaving Live this spring and returning to Los Angeles from New York to film Season 21 of American Idol.

The daytime TV star said he will miss his “work wife” Kelly, who has hosted the show since 2001.

Ryan added that he was “excited to pass the baton to Kelly’s “real husband” Mark, and joked that the actor should “feel free to remodel my dressing room.”


Last month, Kelly spoke to Variety about her concerns about Ryan’s departure.

He has been her co-host since 2017.

She’s had three co-hosts – Regis Philbin, Michael Strahan and now Ryan – who have come and gone as she has been a fixture for over 20 years.

Although Kelly had known about the American Idol host’s departure for some time, she still said she was saddened by his announcement.

She told the outlet that Mark comforted her about the decision.

“Ryan and Mark were like, ‘Why are you nervous? It’s going to be okay,'” Kelly told Variety.

“And I said to them, ‘You must forgive me. I have a little PTSD.’”

Both Regis and Michael had taken her by surprise with her decision to leave, causing tension on the set.

She was happy when Ryan joined the show, so it’s understandable that she’s feeling a little apprehensive.
