Kelly Ripa is not shy about her husband Mark Consuelos’ stripper past. In an interview with Vanity Fair, she revealed, “He was a stripper," the mom of three says. "A lot of guys in Hollywood have done that. He was straight out of college, and he went to Notre Dame and finished his degree at the University of South Florida. So, there he was in South Florida, he's gorgeous, looking to break into show business, so he started off as a roadie to a group of these guys, and then they talked him into stripping.”
