How cool is this?! The Wednesday, Nov. 7 episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan was probably the best episode ever because Kelly Ripa welcomed her “firstborn,” aka her 21-year-old son Michael Consuelos, as a guest on her show!
During their sit-down, host Ryan Seacrest asked Michael — who recently appeared on Season 3 of Riverdale — if there’s anything that Michael can get away with at home without his famous mom finding out. And, of course, the young actor had the best response! Watch Michael’s interview with Kelly and Ryan in the video below!
“I can get away with something but she’ll always find out… I’ll come home [from college] and my mom would be like, ‘Is there anything that you want to tell me about?’ And I’d confess everything even stuff she didn’t know about so she would find out everything immediately,” Michael joked.
Kelly appeared to be a little bit shocked by her eldest child’s answer but said that she agreed with him because he’s definitely the most trustworthy of her three kids with husband Mark Consuelos. “You are one of the most honest people that I know. You would fold like a house of cards,” she replied. “Your siblings, on the other hand, are trained, professional liars.”
Michael also dished that he usually goes to his mom, Kelly, when he wants something rather than his dad, Mark. “Usually there’s like an idea that if you get a good grade or anything it’s easier to get what you want [but it’s the] reverse effect on mom. If I come home and I’m like, ‘Hey I got an A on this test,’ she’s like, ‘What do you want?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, nothing now, where’s dad?'” he joked. “But if I just normally out of the blue want something — mom.” Ryan then chimed in to say, “Sounds like you’ve got your bases covered!”
