Kelly Ripa is headed to Riverdale, and she’s set to play the mistress of Hiram Lodge, played by her IRL hubby, Mark Consuelos.
Cue all of the “family affair” jokes, because Kelly Ripa will be heading to Riverdale to play the mistress of her real-life husband’s character, Hiram Lodge. Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos since the mid-’90s, and Ripa joked that her new Riverdale role was one she had been “auditioning 23 years to play.” The actress and talk show host first made the casting announcement on her Instagram, and we’re so excited to learn more about her role on the show.
Apart from knowing that Ripa will be playing a woman embroiled in a steamy affair with Hiram, we don’t know a ton about her character or her impact on the other characters on Riverdale. Entertainment Weekly reported a few details on the character released by the CW, and it’s got us dying to know more. Ripa will play Mrs. Mulwray, a tough and confident femme fatale who finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy much bigger than she ever imagined.
This isn’t the first time that the Consuelos/Ripa family has been together onscreen. Not only did Consuelos and Ripa first meet when they were both on the soap All My Children, but their son Michael is set to play a young Hiram on Riverdale in an extended flashback on the episode “The Midnight Club.”
There isn’t a date attached to Ripa’s Riverdale debut, but we’re excited to see Ripa and Consuelos onscreen together. And with the natural chemistry that those two have, we’re certain that Hiram and Mrs. Mulwray’s affair will be a steamy one, indeed!
Riverdale airs on the CW on Wednesdays at 8 pm EST/PST.
