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."

Sounds like Julianne Moore needs to chat with Kelly Ripa about the wonders of date night.
While Moore finds such evenings all but impossible to schedule, Ripa tells Good Housekeeping that quality time with husband Mark Consuelos isn't optional – and often leads to a little hanky-panky.
"Sometimes we'll put the kids to bed early and watch Jersey Shore on DVR," Ripa says in the magazine's November issue. "It can be that simple, just the two of us, alone, one day a week, for dinner and hijinks … a little bump and tickle. Woo-hoo! I'm 40. I can say that now."

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos might have their love life in order, but when it comes to raising their teenage son, they need all the help they can get.

"I'm actually given money to put on a parka. 'Put your parka on! Here's another dollar. Put on that hat!' "

Kelly Ripa's rep has a reply to the claim that the star's 12-year marriage to actor Mark Consuelos is over: No way.
"There is no truth to the story. Their marriage continues to be quite healthy, and the National Enquirer should be ashamed for fabricating such an untruthful story," Ripa's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, told PEOPLE Wednesday, after the paper reported the couple have split.
"Their story is 100 percent false," Rosenfield added.
