Mark Consuelos brought back the pornostache for an episode of Riverdale alongside his son Michael
Kelly Ripa has officially dubbed 2012 ‘The Year of Porn ‘Stache’ thanks to Mark Consuelos’ facial hair play. The happily married couple found themselves at a crossroads exactly a decade ago when Consuelos refused to shave his mustache for a whole year, despite repeated requests from Ripa. She explains that her husband has had a variety of styles over the years and they are usually role driven.
During an appearance on Thursday’s Live with Kelly and Ryan on July 28, Ripa explained how Consuelos rocked what she calls a “porn stache” for an entire year. She told co-host Ryan Seacrest, “He had every type of facial hair that a person can have. He had every kind. It’s usually roller driven. If you see a hair change, it’s for a roll. There was a certain role where.” I’m calling it ‘The Year of Porn ‘Stache’ and the images are still [around].” Kelly Ripa continued, “It was also the year we went to things, we went to events.” She revealed how she would always ask, “Do we have to bring the porn stache? As your hair grows, you can grow it back until tomorrow!’ You know, he didn’t want to do that for continuity reasons.”
What does Mark Consuelos think of the pornostache?
The couple have been married since 1996 and have three children together: daughter Lola, 21, and sons Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 19. The Generation Gap host shared a picture of herself with her husband, in which she has a Mustache is also calling out in 2019 with the Instagram post’s caption: “#tbt 2012 the year of the mustache (his. Mine not pictured)”. In general, she doesn’t have a problem with his mustache, as she told Seacrest, it depends mustache.” However, now we know what she really thinks about the “porn stache.”
In 2020, on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ripa said of Consuelos’ mustache, “I can take it or leave it, I like it either way.” But for Consuelos, she wasn’t the hardest to convince, it was her kids, as he noted, “They say I look like an aging porn star.” In 2020, Consuelos shared a picture of his father Saul Consuelos, where we can see the same mustache he rocked in 2012. Ripa even created a collage of father and son side by side to show the resemblance, almost uncanny. The now-deleted Instagram post read, “1966 vs. today. @Instauelos, dad doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
Consuelos compared his situation to his father on Ripa’s show himself, saying, “You know my father had a mustache, and he still has space between his nose and his upper lip.” Although he shaved off his mustache, he brought it in August 2021, along with his son Michael, returned the blast from the past for an episode of “Riverdale.”
