Kelly Ripa’s Daughter Lola Consuelos Is All Of Us As Teens After Making A Risqué Alteration To Her Prom Dress
Remember back in high school when we walked out of our homes dressed as hijas modestas our mamis were proud to send off with a kiss only to ditch our sweaters for spaghetti strap tops or put on a little lip liner the moment we hit the bus stop?
Well, turns out Latina teens are still up to our mischievous ways.
Turns out Kelly Ripa’s daughter knows the rules of the trade too.
On Monday’s episode of The Jerry O’ Show, guest Kelly Ripa disclosed that her daughter Lola Consuelos, 18, made some risqué alterations to her prom dress that she and husband Mark Consuelos did not approve. ¡Que sinvergüenza!
“That’s the prom dress we had made and she had altered behind our back,” Ripa, 48, told host-actor Jerry O’Connell about the stunning gown her daughter wore to the formal dance in a photo displayed on a big screen behind them. “So that’s why you know, uh, the girls are fully on display.”
She’s not exaggerating, either.
Lola dazzled in a form-fitting, emerald-green satin dress with a deep V-cut that put her breasts front and center.
With her long brown hair in Old Hollywood waves, the Italian-Mexican young beauty looked gorgeous, but seeing her tatas so present in the ensemble was a surprise to her mother and father, to say the least.
“Everybody came down the stairs together, and I just mean Lola,” Ripa added, referring to her daughter’s impossible-to-miss boobies, as the audience erupted in laughter.
According to Cosmopolitan, the hidden alterations could have been payback, whether intentional or not, for a shocking sight Ripa and Consuelos delivered days earlier that is similarly haunting Lola.
During the teen’s 18th birthday back in June, she walked in on her parents having sex.
“She shuts the door and you hear, ‘You just ruined my birthday, and my life,’” Ripa said of her daughter’s dramatic but also understandable reaction to the x-rated scene.
In defense of Lola’s adolescent disobedience, seeing your parents naked and grinding on one another is pretty horrifying and revolting. Surely, at this point, both parties are probably, right?
Despite Lola’s mischief, Ripa proudly posted a photo of her daughter in the sumptuous prom gown, which was designed by New York-based tailor Raza Wijdan and styled by her mother’s own stylist Audrey Slater, in June. But, according to Ripa, even getting a photo from her daughter took some work. “It took me 20 hours to get that photo. I was like, ‘Please just give Mommy one. Just one photo,” Ripa told O’Connell, sounding like all of our mamis who are desperate to receive photos we have not yet had the time to thoroughly look through, scrutinize and edit.
Ripa, however, was lucky enough to receive two daughter-approved prom pictures, one of Lola and her date and another of the mother and daughter smiling side-by-side. “Love you,” Ripa wrote in a caption.
During the segment of the new Fox TV daytime talk show, Ripa also talked about what high school was like for her baby girl, who graduated this year and will be attending New York University’s new Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in the fall.
When O’Connell asks Ripa if HBO’s new hit series Euphoria adequately illustrates what teen life looks like these days, the fellow actress-talk show host says, “I’m pretty sure that’s exactly how high school is.” Her response frightened the host, a father of young daughters. Before O’Connell had a heart attack, Ripa quickly noted that she was kidding and added that she hopes the show isn’t a genuine portrayal.
The Zendaya-fronted series that debuted on June 16 follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendships. Apparently, Lola and her girls are big fans of the show, much like the rest of the world right now, which prompted Ripa to ask her daughter if it is an accurate representation of modern-day adolescence.
Lola’s response was less than comforting: “I don’t really think so, not that much,” Ripa recalled her girl saying.
At this point, Ripa, O’Connell and all parents in the audience are validly terrified.
Despite teasing her daughter for making adjustments to her dress behind her back, mocking her generation’s obsession with perfect photos and trying to make sense of Gen Z youngsters in general, she and O’Connell agreed that Lola is an all-around great young woman.
“She’s a smart girl. She’s a nice girl,” Ripa said of her daughter.
Ripa married the Spanish-born Mexican-Italian actor Mark Consuelos on May 1, 1996.
The pair met one year prior as co-stars on the beloved soap opera All My Children. Together, the couple shares three children: Michael Joseph, 22, Lola Grace, 18, and Joaquin Antonio, 16.
