Mark Consuelos Talks "Live! With Kelly" Rumors and Family

As the world awaits any kind of announcement about who Kelly Ripa's new "Live! With Kelly" co-host will be, her husband Mark Consuelos is claiming to know nothing about his wife's plans.

During a recent red carpet event, Consuelos was asked if he knew anything about behind-the-scenes developments for "Live!" since, after all, he has appeared a handful of times as a guest co-host with Ripa.

"You have a feeling that I know about 'Live!," he said with a knowing smile. "No, I have no idea!"

Though it may be hard to believe that Consuelos knows absolutely nothing about who his wife wants to replace Michael Strahan as her new co-host, he appeared to be telling the truth.
