- Kelly Ripa is trolling her husband Mark Consuelos for being a terrible photographer.
- She asked him to take a thirst trap of her on vacation, and he delivered a hilarious blooper that she shared on Live With Kelly and Ryan.
- “Forget the abs. Where’s my head?” she said.
We know for certain that Kelly Ripa is an artist behind the camera—simply look at the thirst traps she took of her husband Mark Consuelos on their latest vacation. Now if only he could return the favor. On the September 6 episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, Ripa vented to Ryan Seacrest about her hubs’ failed attempt to capture her poolside in a bikini.
“I’ve discussed this on this show many times—let’s say something tragic happened to me on vacation, we would have no way of knowing that I was ever there because there’s never a picture of me on vacation because I’m the photographer,” she lamented. And with her Live Wire book tour coming up, she thought promoting it with a “glam shot” of her “casually lounging, not stressed out at all” was a good idea. But Consuelos, unfortunately, did not deliver.

Sharing the blooper photo with the Live audience, she turned a printed version around to reveal her swimsuit-clad torso and chin soaking in the pool. Notably absent? Her head. “Wow, look at those abs!” Seacrest exclaimed. “Forget the abs,” Ripa responded. “Where’s my head? That could be anybody. That could be Elle Macpherson for all we know.”
“That’ll sell books!” Seacrest insisted. But Ripa shook her head in disappointment.
“I mean, what’s happening? My belly button is very prominent. Forget it,” she said.
Thankfully, the mom of three got somewhat of a thirst trap recently when on vacation with the whole family. On August 9, she shared a poolside video featuring Consuelos to promote their daughter Lola’s debut single. Taken from behind their lounge chairs, you see more of her ocean view and hat than anything, but it’s still a breezy beautiful capture, nonetheless.
In fact, the couple has no shortage of vacation shots, having recently taken their first trip as empty nesters. They went rock climbing out West (and looked super strong while doing it), hiking, and relaxed at a resort in Utah. “We had the time of our lives,” she said on Live upon her return. “There was some work involved in this trip but that’s not what we were doing. We went to the Amangiri [resort], out in Utah. It is luxury. It’s like, the kind of trip we would take without kids.”
As fun as it was to have alone time, it’s always precious to have the entire family together. “It sure was nice having the chickens back in the nest for a couple of weeks,” Ripa captioned an August 24 Instagram of her kids, Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 19. “Back to life…..back to reality ♥️♥️♥️🥺.”
And as far as the thirst trap goes, there’s always next time.
