The day before, the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” host shared during an interview on “Recap Rewind” about her guest spot as Mrs. Mulray on the hit CW show alongside her husband Consuelos and how it came to be.

“All roles in my acting career have trickled through my husband. I’m not kidding,” Ripa explained. “I often say would I even have an acting career if it were not for Mark.”

“Mark said to me, ‘Oh Roberto wants to know if maybe you’ll play my mistress,'” she added. “I was like, shouldn’t Marisol [Nichols] play your mistress? In my mind, I am so honored and so blown away at the concept that anybody would consider me mistress material. So I said yes.”

“I’m really excited,” Consuelos recently told PEOPLE. “The Consuelos family one by one is going be on Riverdale. I love it!”

“It was so much fun,” he added. “We got to spend the weekend up in Vancouver [where Riverdale is filmed] and we had a nice little weekend there.”
