The TV star was eager to speak to her “baby daddy” about how they’ve survived marriage for over two decades,
During their candid chat, Kelly couldn’t resist speaking about the physical side of their relationship.
During the podcast, the couple’s marriage counsellor asked them how they survived that time apart and not being intimate together.
“We had sexual rituals that were so ludicrous over FaceTime!” Kelly admitted.
She continued: “But I became so alarmed at my appearance over FaceTime that I started rigging the computer to hang from a ladder.
“I hung the computer over a ladder so that I could look up to Mark so that he did not have to see what gravity was actually doing.”
“You get really close to yourself in situations where you’re separated from your husband for long periods of time,” she added.
Mark went on to admit that a ‘”potential deal-breaker” in their marriage would be if she “cut [him] off sexually.”
He then added: “Unless you had some type of medical condition where, like, you lost the use of [your body].”
Kelly then reminded Mark that they had experienced “days” of abstinence when she went through menopause, but he told her: “I didn’t give you a break. There has never been months [without sex] unless I was in another country.”
The mom-of-three also touched on Mark’s past jealousy issues, and how he wasn’t her biggest cheerleader initially.
“My biggest complaint about you over the course of our marriage — and this is not recent because it definitely changed — but you used to be insanely jealous, and that was a hard pill to swallow,” Kelly admitted.
The Live With Kelly and Ryan host then detailed an incident that happened early on in their relationship that showed his jealous side.
“It was our first week of marriage because we didn’t take our honeymoon until later. You were working, and I went to visit you in Boston,” she began.
“We went to this Italian restaurant, and the waiter was, like, a very cute old man; he’s definitely in his 70s if not 80s. He leaned down, and he said, ‘And for the Principessa?’”
Kelly continued: “I thought it was so cute that this little old man called me a princess, and I looked at him, and I gave him my order in a very smiley way. And he walked away, and you picked a horrible fight.”
Mark recalled the moment and explained that his age was part of the reason for his behavior.
“I remember that. Look, at age 25, I was pretty insane,” he shared.
“But that jealousy thing definitely followed me for a while. I’m not jealous anymore,” Mark added.
Kelly and Mark eloped in May 1996 after meeting on the set of All My Children.
The couple have three children: Michael, 25; Lola, 21; and Joaquin, 19, and reside in New York City.
