When it comes to taking breathtaking shots, Kelly Ripa is your (wo)man. It is no secret that she is a maverick when it comes to photography, recent shots of Mark Consuelos from the couple’s latest vacation is just one such example.
But the real whoops for Ripa is that her husband, Mark Consuelos isn’t. He isn’t as talented a photographer as his spouse is. And his lack of skill has come back to haunt Ripa, who cheekily trolled her husband for his horrendous photography skills while fulfilling the role of the family photographer herself.
Kelly Ripa and her ‘glam shot’
In their latest vacation, Kelly Ripa asked Mark Consuelos to click a picture of her which would make everyone turn their heads. In her words, she wanted a “glam shot“.
That picture of her casually lounging without any care for the world would be the perfect promotion for her upcoming Live Wire book tour. There was nothing wrong with the conception of the idea.
But Mark Consuelos had other plans.
Mark Consuelos failed to deliver
What he set out to take was a thirst trap. What he managed to click could not even be called a complete photo of Kelly Ripa. The click, which can rightly be referred to as a blooper, did not include a shot of her face.
On an episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, Ripa showed how dismayed she was by the fact that she didn’t have a single decent photo to show. She said, “I’ve discussed this on this show many times—let’s say something tragic happened to me on vacation, we would have no way of knowing that I was ever there because there’s never a picture of me on vacation because I’m the photographer.”
She shared the ‘photo’ which her husband did take, and Ryan Seacrest found nothing wrong. He said, “Wow, look at those abs!” Ripa retorted, “Forget the abs. Where’s my head? That could be anybody. That could be Elle Macpherson for all we know.”
She was even disappointed by how Consuelos made his better half look like a ‘dime store prostitute’ another time during their vacation.
Looks like Mark Consuelos needs to take some classes.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have other vacations to cherish
But Consuelos’ debacle this time doesn’t mean that their is any dearth of “glam shots” she has from any of her vacations. On August 9, she posted a video of herself, alongside her husband, near a pool. The post was to promote her daughter Lola Consuelos’ debut single.
One time, they even ventured out in the West for rock climbing. The couple enjoyed the trip thoroughly, and they could be seen enjoying each other’s company while hiking and relaxing at a resort in Utah. Even Ripa had to say, “We had the time of our lives,” for that vacation.
Maybe that will somewhat alleviate the regret of not getting a decent shot from her most recent vacation. And we love to see a fun couple who keeps trolling each other even after over 25 years of marriage.
