Mark Consuelos Slams Kelly Ripa's Bikini Body Shamers

Mark Consuelos Slams Kelly Ripa's Bikini Body Shamers

Mark Consuelos is defending his wife Kelly Ripa after he posted a photo of her in a bikini on their vacation.

A few days ago, the 46-year-old actor shared a pic of Kelly in a bikini on Instagram and captioned the pic, “Sultry Sundays with the sexy one are my fave…”

Well, the picture got a lot of attention from haters, and on Wednesday (March 28), Mark responded.

“I wanted to take a couple of days to weigh in. Probably should’ve earlier arguably. But I wanted to be above it. Well, not I’m not. I posted this pic of the women I most admire,” he wrote in the comments of the post. “As a playful tribute to my wife who I’m proud of in endless ways. She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come.”

“If that offends you in some way, if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you’re suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it. To all the males that had something negative to say. I suggest you bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you. I’m going to get back to my vacation now.. thanks for allowing me to express myself,” he continued.

Mark added another sweet message to his wife and you can see what he wrote in the gallery.

    It’s great Mark controls, I mean loves his wife’s appearance. However, not everyone holds the same opinion and he should not have even responded. Mad respect to Kelly for all the hard work and personally, I appreciate a ripped female physique, but Kelly is WAY underweight. She has NOTHING and I’m not referring to her flat chest. A healthy ripped ANYONE has a bit of bulk to them. She is skin on muscle. Mark is a tiny little man with a Napoleon complex and apparently an itty bitty temper. Keeping Kelly minuscule makes little Mark feel big, both physically and financially.

    i don’t c why he had to reply. we all know she’s a first class B and can handle herself. he must have to defend her against a lot of hate

    People criticize her body nonstop and I agree w you. Why address the hate now? Both of them are always trying to make themselves the hot topic, that’s why. . It’s not the bikini at 47, it’s the body wearing it. No one can deny Kelly puts in the work, but it seems most people do NOT find her body to be attractive in clothes or out of clothes (oh I shutter to think of her naked, OMG, like a petite gay man w his junk tucked). Anyhow, Brooke Shields posted a couple bikini shots too. The feedback was POSITIVE. Brooke looks like a former model with great genes,
    who is fit and healthy and aging gracefully. In true model fashion, she looks effortless. Kelly is always flexing like she’s in a competition. Same goes for her stupid rubber face husband always “flashing” that smile. Always the same look. Stupid

    No, the 2 of them should be ashamed of their nonstop blatant attempts of attention.
    They’re on vacation and they post pics for reactions. Shouldn’t they just chill?? No, they can’t because they’ve become self-obsessed. Mark thinks Kelly looks so great, so why can’t he just enjoy her company? He actually took time to post pics AND respond to the negativity (which no doubt was unexpected by him). A whole lot of people think Mark and Kelly AREN’T “all that”.

    You are right he shouldn’t have responded to the haters but people shouldn’t say the things they do just to be mean. I’ll never understand why people follow people on Twitter just to harass them.

    Look, I’m obviously not fans of these 2 and my comments aren’t positive, but I would never go out of my way to follow them and respond negatively. Yoiur point is so valid My thoughts have always been that you follow people on social media who you LIKE!
    At the same time, I feel EVERYONE posts way too much private stuff when they should just be enjoying the moment. It’s like “look at me, look where
    I am, see how great my life is” ??? IMO, it’s all for show. I do understand why people in the entertainment industry post stuff (but it should t be vacay pics and things that are “off the clock” so to speak). They want the fans. But regular people like us, have no reason to post stuff for all to see. It’s just an attempt to project superiority and boost one’s ego. . Heck,
    When I’m vacationing or
    doimg special things with my family I FORGET to take photos because I’m enjoying the time!!!
    Take care cool boots!

  • soyeahsowhat

    i think the hate for Kelly is more about Kelly and less about her body, if that makes sense. she’s not known as being likeable

  • suzybel

    Why shouldn’t he defend his wife? And she looks good in a bikini, 47 years old or not.

  • Cool Boots

    That could be. I have read that she can be difficult to get along with sometimes.
