After nearly 17 years of happy marriage to Mark Consuelos, one thing can still really set off Kelly Ripa.

"I am openly hostile when Mark leaves the toilet seat up," Ripa, 42, told PEOPLE Tuesday at a private dinner in New York to honor her pal, Bravo star Andy Cohen, and his partnership with the retail site Gilt Man. "I don't think you get past the little pet peeves."

"Mark never puts the toilet seat back down, and it irritates me," she continued. "We still fight about it. But it's OK to fight about things. We're secure with each other. I don't feel like if we have an argument, it will be the end of our lives."

Although the Live! With Kelly and Michael host would prefer her husband, 42, to kick his habit, "I really do worship Mark," she said. "I love everything about him, even his annoying habits."



"He is the person I was meant to be with forever, and I think he feels the same way," Ripa said. "We really do have quite an allegiance to one another. No matter what, we support each other in everything we do."
