Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos want to set the record straight.
After Ripa caused a stir last week when she said that her husband of more than 20 years is "immediately mean" to her after "grown up time," she's backtracking on her statement.
Consuelos joined Ripa on Live! With Kelly Wednesday to clear the air. Click through to see what the couple had to say!
"I'm sorry! I was joking," Ripa said during Wednesday's show alongside Consuelos. "This is a funny, irreverent show. I didn't realize that it would become trending news."
"I just wanted to set the record straight that no one can be mean after something if they are unconscious," Consuelos said. "I sleep."
"Maybe that's what I meant," Ripa said. "I didn't really mean mean. I meant completely disinterested — like sound asleep."
"If disinterested means sleeping...how about satisfied and just happy?" Consuelos said. (Cue unified "awww" from audience.)prevnext

"When there's special married couple time in our house—do you know what I'm talking about?" she asked, "Because there's kids watching so I'm just going to say let's call it special grownup time."
Ripa continued, "He's immediately mean to me afterwards and I don't like that. I think it's bizarre. He becomes short with me, like irritated."
"I'm like, 'Oh, now you're irritated? You were so loving three minutes ago!"
While Consuelos appeared slightly flustered, the two quickly started cracking up.

Considering that the couple has been married since 1996, we think they can laugh off this awkward admission.prev
