Kelly Ripa Calls Fans ‘Thirst Buckets’ After They Comment on Mark Consuelos's...Well...You Know

Kelly Ripa is trying not to make the same mistake twice when it comes to posting pictures of her husband Mark Consuelos—especially when tight pants are involved. Allow us to explain.

Last month, in anticipation of Halloween, the 50-year-old television host shared a slideshow of throwback photographs of her family, plus Ryan Seacrest, in costumes from past holidays. “#tbt Halloween is a family business,” the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host captioned the post alongside a handful of emojis. “Here are a few faves over the years.”

However, it was the last photo that quickly grabbed the attention of followers, featuring a snap of Consuelos dressed as a cop and donning a pair of particularly tight pants. Ripa made it clear that her intention wasn’t to show off her husband’s bulge. So, in her latest post she made sure to crop it out to avoid any comments from the “thirst buckets.”

“A costumed how it started, how it’s going, and I cropped at the crotch you thirst buckets,” she captioned a slideshow over the weekend. “All trick, no treat. #halloween 2020.” The first photo featured a throwback of the couple like a royal couple, while the second (which was taken for this year’s celebration) featured the two dressed up for La Dia de Los Muertos.

We’re not surprised Ripa decided to poke fun at her recent post, considering it captured tons of attention online. In fact, even Consuelos himself addressed the matter, “Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing that bulging effect,” he wrote on his wife’s original post.

Nice work, Kelly. Don’t let those “thirst buckets” get to you.
