Kelly Ripa of Live! With Kelly and Michael fame has been married to Mark Consuelos since 1996. For some couples that might be things are getting a little stale. Not so for Ripa and Consuelos, however, and she shared a bit about it during a conversation with Andy Cohen recently.

"There's no secret! We just like each other a lot," Ripa, 44, explained. "I really--I love my husband. I think he's awesome. We've been together a long time and we try to do spicy things together all the time," she said.

Ripa's answer wasn't as juicy as Cohen had hoped, which prompted him to lead in with a follow-up remark.

"I heard you say recently that you must have sex as much as possible to keep your relationship going," he said.

"I believe I said that to you in a private conversation," she replied. "I fundamentally believe that the more you do it the more you do it and the less you do it the less you do it."

It seems like Kelly Ripa knows how to make her marriage sizzle while cooling Andy Cohen down in a matter of seconds.

Kelly and Mark have been married since 1996, and are the parents of three children. Michael is 17, Joaquin is 11, and daughter Lola is 13.

With three kids and her talk show she co-hosts with Michael Strahan, Kelly Ripa is one busy woman. If she can keep sizzle in her marriage with all that going on, she needs to write a book and share her tips with other busy moms.

Don't you love how Kelly shared just enough with Andy Cohen to keep things interesting, without divulging personal details about her marriage and sex life? She has always been one very classy lady.
