One of the most enduring couples in Hollywoodland, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, have signed a production deal with cabler TLC.

Kelly and Mark are more than pretty TV presenters. They are business people, too!

The duo will develop 'unscripted' (ahem, reality) shows for the feel-good network through their production company, Milojo Productions.

The TLC deal has a 'reunion' element of sorts for the couple. TLC President, Angela Shapiro-Mathes, used to be their boss at ABC. Shapiro-Mathes was President of ABC Daytime when Kelly and Mark were on the ABC soap All My Children.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with TLC,” said Ripa and Consuelos in the press release announcing the deal. “The first thing you want in a relationship is for it to feel right, and this definitely feels right. And it’s great to be working with Angela Shapiro-Mathes again — she has been so instrumental in our careers.”

What kind of shows do you think they're gonna develop???

Probably some boring parenting crap!

    J LO REALITY SHOW ON TLC

  13. aileen (canada) says – reply to this


    13

    Enough of this pair already. 'Reality', ha, these two are so far removed from reality these days that Kelly felt it relevant to tell her 'Live' audience recently that Mark goes ahead to check out their holiday resort and report back if it will suit the family. Only then do they all go!!! Oh yeh, like the average Joe that they bend over themselves to say they represent. They are obsessed by the God of money, hell mend the tv companies that encourage the Ripa's!! to think they are capable of 'developing' programming for the masses and the folks who encourage the circus by watching!

    Too bad Mark cheats on her with teenage and 20-something year old girls all the time. What a sham marriage.

    Well its about time he got a job and stopped mooching of his wife. They both make me cringe, she's so damn skinny and weird and he's a looser that cheats on her. Doesent that remind you of good old Kathy Lee?

    You make yourselves sound…..ummmmmm…………. JEALOUS!!

  39. ryan rivercrest says – reply to this


    39

    The truth is that Mark and Kelly have a faux marriage and are both gay!!!!!!!! He has a gay lover and she has a lesbiana.
    They are never together and fake it all the way.
    The last kid amy be her galpal's kid. Is it Aaron herrock hard nanny galpal lover or sarah michelle gellar her live in galpal. while mark is back and forth to CA with his gay lover chicono style.

  40. sonya roberston says – reply to this


    40

    You're 100% correct, they do have a "sham" marriage as they are both gay.
    Gay Gay GAy Gay Gay ……

  41. claire soto says – reply to this


    41

    They are both playing marriage and she has a mauscript for what to say and when to say it about her husband (fake) to make it sound relaistic.

    A reality show of sorts as they are both gay but play like they're married.
    As sarah michelle gellar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gay gay gay gay gay gay gay!

  42. luba castro says – reply to this


    42

    I liked Kelly in the beginning but now I see she is a big phoney with her audiece and lies thru both sides of her mouth!
    She plays the happy family when it all not that. She had one kid by Mark and then they relaized they were both gay. Another thru a sperm bank and carried another for her lesbian girl friend.
    She's in New York and He's in CA kissing his gay.

  43. mytwocents says – reply to this


    43

    There is something about her face its always like perfect, perfect makeup no wrinkles perfect hair , lip gloss always on never faded …am i right?
    But she is a lollipop head def way too big for skkiiiinny body
    how can he listen to her? her voice is annoying it's like she pretends to sound that way cuz someone cant really sound like that , can they?

I ADORE REGIS BUTSHE SUDDENLY THINKS THAT REGIS AND KELLY IS ALL ABOUT KELLY!!! SHE NEEDS TO REALIZE THAT SHE CAN BE REPLACE BUT MY REGIS CANNOT BE!!!
    I HOPE SHE GOES AND STAYS AT THE HAMPTONS AND DOESNT COME BACK!!!

    AND HER DAUGHTER ACTS LIKE A LITTLE SPOILED BRAT.. I GUESS THE APPLE REALLY DOESNT FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

  45. nic says – reply to this


    45

    Even though Priscilla Presley herself was a little rude on Regis and Kelly last week, I loved that she pointed out how Kelly does nothing but butt in during conversations. Kelly looked taken back by the abrupt comment…haha…there's her reality.

  46. Mel says – reply to this


    46

    Kelly said on her show this morning that they produced a movie that is showing at the Tribeca film festival. Something about a wrestling team and how they had the longest running winning streak. I guess it was produced in association with ESPN and they are showing it

  47. Jen says – reply to this


    47

    Well, I don't really care what they are doing… but Kelly Ripa looks wonderful!! I gotta hate women who are so much older than I am and have better skin and less wrinkles. I wish I had millz to hire a perma-dermatologist and plastic surgeon and cosmetic dentist (not saying that she has had any surgeries)!!

    She's a skank with the body of a 10 yo boy. Way to starve yourself genius!

    They should do an I LOVE LUCY type show. That would be perfect for them!

  52. now there's a hot one says – reply to this


    52

    mark is the kind of latin I like. SMall dark and handsome. Butch, and a yet he's bottom, no doubt. She frightens me. And as far as "some parenting crap" goes, Perez, if your daddy hadn't waited on you hand and TV tray your whole childhood you might have grown up with some actual social skills.
    You are a barracuda, bitch.
    You are a barracuda, bitch.
    You are a barracuda, bitch.

    I thought TLC was going to be replaced for some oprah channel

  56. Nobama says – reply to this


    56

    Is their marriage for real? I think Mark is one of the hottest things ever. Kelly needs to gain 10 lbs, dye her hair back to reddish brown and stop trying to ham it up like Kathie Lee.

  57. neepur says – reply to this


    57

    she kind of strikes me as a bitch- he's definitely whipped.
    Yawn, it could only go down in flames.
    Cool, I say they do it.

    I hate to admit it but I'd watch a reality show about them. They'd be more normal than our lovely NYC Housewives over on Bravo!!!

  60. Lala says – reply to this


    60

    Is this "unscripted" show going to be like JLo's new "unscripted" show? I know they're both going to suck. No "unscripted" show on TLC will ever beat that family of midgets shows where midget dad comes up with new scams to bring in money from the family farm.

    65

    They both worked hard for what they have and they deserve it a whole lot more then those born into money and fame like paris and nicole. I'll be watching. btw, mark is fine as hell!!

  66. Percy says – reply to this


    66

    Re: Gia

    Kelly may have money but she is an UNEDUCATED attention whore. Her kids are horrible brats and probably future druggies.

    How Electrolux chose her for their commercial is beyond me. I hope lots of people email them and complain.

    I think she looks ill. If Mark is gay, she might have AIDS or Hepatitis C. I don't think I've ever seen anyone who looks more like a pumpkin that kelly ripa. Her face could not be oranger or ROUNDER.

    who can stand this witch with a capital B? She thinks she's above all us mere mortals thinking she's a GODDESS. Everyone hates her! YUCK. She needs less make-up, less hair bleach, less Tan maybe then you could actually see HER. and her name fits her… RIPA… she ripes into everyone who slights her in the teenest way… like Clay Aiken, Pressla Presley to name two. Both were correct in correcting this Witch.

    C'mon Perez. You know the minute you have a child, and something tells me you will one day, you will be all over those shows, pushing the latest $900 stroller, and setting up play dates with other show business babies. Parenting may seem boring now…but mark my words…something tells me this will change. Probably sooner than you might think….You know you want one of those chunkers for yourself! :-)

  69. Can't STAND Ripa says – reply to this


    69

    She's such a high brow SNOB. She forgets that her hollywood peers didn't make her career, her fans did… and that is dwindling. He's her cute little pet troll, and she reminds me of a nasty, biting little chihuahua.

    1st of all I've seen them out in The Hamptons…He's maybe 5'2 and I'm being generous. The reason why you see them out there is because they LOVE to be seen!!! Esp. Him!!! He needs to seriously get a job!! He's a horrible actor…When you're the worst actor on her failed sitcom…you have a major problem.

    I AM SURE IT WILL BE SHOW ABOUT HOW TO EXERCISE OBSESSIVELY OR HOW TO DANCE IN A CHAIR OR HOW TO WALK LIKE A SUPERMODEL IN YOUR DREAMS OR HOW TO DO COMMERCIALS ABOUT COOKING WHEN YOU DON'T COOK. WHAT A TANOREXIC.

    f*cking pinheads getting off on posting nasty vile and way off base comments. Hope you all got off really good posting your bullsh*t. Do internet comment boards turn everyone into a 13 year old school yard bully throwing half assed disses at people?

  82. Probs some shit says – reply to this


    82

    I'm sure it'll suck. Notice how the woman that hired their production company was the woman that originally hired Kelly… Hollywood and TV is getting so lame… they just keep hiring and using the same assholes that you see everywhere. No offense, but these two are boring… I can't imagine what ever they develop wil be that great. She's a fucking twit on Regis and Kelly… don't understand how she's still on that show. Regis looks like he wants to beat the crap out of her on a daily basis. Stupid little whore.

    quite the long way Mr. Ripa has come since his days of getting naked and stripping for Tampa Bay's lonely trailer trash women…
    Hey wait, I was his biggest groupie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wanna see pics?? LOL.. He looks better nekkid. And the little Mrs…she needs to eat a sandwich. Just what the world needs, more horrible reality shows, his other one with the old broads and young phillipoussis sucked too…and she is just plain annoying. Best of luck.

    Re: dj – True that!! I always say it was my money that put him where he is! He wanted me to go outside the bar for a little BJ action in his Honda Prelude back in the day. He always had girls going "outside". Nasty skanky ones too. Now, as hot as he is– he is nothing more than Mr. Ripa. he should be on dances with stars where all the "wish i was still a celebrity" go. he totally pissed me off in People mag saying "he has 2 left feet and cant dance at all…" oh really Mr. Suncoast Calendar Man from tampa fl?? Seriously? Liar Liar pants on Fire!!

    PEREZ ALL THIS STUFF THAT YOU POST IS SO STUPID THIS ISN'T EVEN SOMETHING TO PUT ON A GOSSIP SITE , YOU JUST TRIED TO CREATE SOMETHING AND YOU MADE YOURSELF SOUND LAME AND DESPERATE IT SOUNDS SO DUMB. GO JOIN THE STAR MAGAZINE OR SOMETHING BECAUSE YOUR REPORTS ARE AS MADE UP AS THEIRS.

    88

    Funny reading the Kelly haters. One such hater got fired for, well, just not doing her job so she spews venom whenever and wherever she can. What a piece of work. Her ragging and ragging endlessly for years now is truly sad. This gal has a family and pays little attention to them except when necessary. I wonder if she has boils from all the fretting and worrying about Ms. Ripa, Mark and the children.
    Kelly and Mark are talented, warm and nice to look at!!!

  89. rjp3 says – reply to this


    89

    Mark used to be a male stripper / dancer for MEN in Fort Lauderdale/Miami — there ARE great pics of him out there back in the day. He was a regular.

    They should do a Male Stripper reality contest at a big gay bar.

  90. rjp3 says – reply to this


    90

    Just to clarify I do not think Mark is homosexual — I think he liked the attention and could put up with some old man hands on him for cash - gayish for pay.

    Bisexual sure - but usually the "dancers" are into women or women as well.

  91. Jazmin says – reply to this

    Re: dj – I doubt it ! He's only 5'2|" and they don't hire midgets to be strippers.

    Have never seen so many jealous people in my life. And BTW, Mark is not 5'2". Perhaps that's the tallest you can see from your position of slithering on the floor. He's actually 5'8" or 5'9" and he and Kelly make a darling couple. Good for them spreading their wings and dealing with issues behind the camera instead of in front. Good looking family for sure!
