Was Kelly Ripa’s husband a male stripper?

HollywoodNews.com: Television host Kelly Ripa explains to Vanity Fair’s George Wayne why she could never co-host with husband Mark Consuelos: “No one would make me happier than Mark, but he values our marriage and he says that he doesn’t see how we could stay married and both do that show.”

Wayne then brings up Consuelos’s (semi) sordid past: “I found out in the National Enquirer that he was once a go-go boy, a male stripper.” Ripa responds, “He was. A lot of hot 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 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,” making the choice sound very rational indeed.’

George Wayne’s full Q&A appears in the June issue of Vanity Fair.

    This is not surprising. Hollywood is littered with actors who are doing odd jobs such as stripping and waiting tables. I believe it gives them the versatility to do casting calls. He eventually landed a gig on AMC so it worked well for him.
