It’s a brand new era for the popular daytime talk show Live. After hosting with Ryan Seacrest for years, Kelly Ripa has welcomed a brand new host onto the stage. Her husband Mark Consuelos will now be a permanent part of the show.

Live with Kelly and Mark is still pretty fresh, but there have already been plenty of memorable moments. Recently, Kelly even had an unfortunate wardrobe mishap on air.

Now that Mark Consuelos has taken over for Ryan Seacrest, the show is headed in a new direction. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos decided to invite fellow married couple Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy onto the show.

Val and Jenna are well-known for their starring roles on Dancing With The Stars. Jenna sat out the most recent season since she was expecting their first child, but Val went on to finish in second place with his partner, Gabby Windey.

And of course, it wouldn’t make sense to invite a few professional dancers onto the show without a fun performance. Val and Jenna decided to teach Kelly and Mark how to jive.

However, during the performance, Kelly Ripa suffered a minor wardrobe malfunction. She’s no stranger to tight outfits, but it seemed like the rip was caused by the dance moves rather than the fit of the dress.

“Did the entire back of my dress rip open? OK, fine. It’s just a breakaway dress,” Kelly laughed off the situation. She went on to say that she didn’t really care that the rip happened. Plenty of viewers were impressed by how well the 52-year-old handled the situation.

Overall, it seemed like Kelly and Mark had a fantastic time learning a few steps from Jenna and Val.

Is Mark Consuelos really going to work out as the newest cohost?

During her time as the hostess of Live, Kelly Ripa has seen many different cohosts. So what is the show going to be like now that her newest cohost is her spouse?

Although the pair seem to have a strong marriage, Kelly had absolutely no problem poking fun at Mark during his first episode as cohost.

At one point, she even told her husband “You behave in a way that is so bougie and ridiculous.”

Mark Consuelos is still pretty new to the hosting position, so he has plenty of time to improve. What do you think about his hosting abilities so far? Don’t forget to add your thoughts to the conversation!
