Kelly Ripa is keeping it real when it comes to her underwear.

During Friday morning's episode of Live with Kelly & Mark, Ripa, 52, and her co-host husband Mark Consuelos discussed how often a woman should wash her bras, which prompted the television host to reveal how her own undergarments have "nothing exotic going on."

“Now when you have bras that are essentially just pecks that you’re just trying to attach a microphone to, which is what I’ve got going on here, I wash my bras as I would an undershirt, let’s say, which is every wear,” Ripa explained.

Then detailing that the types of bras she wears are "not fancy lace," the longtime TV star added, "There’s no underwire, there’s no support mechanism that one might need, say, if they had actual breasts."

“What I have — and I say this with pride — are nipples that have nursed three kids and now need to be rolled up and tucked into this thing I use to hold my mic on my back,” Ripa continued.

When Ripa searched for a reaction from Consuelos, 52, about her remarks, she teased her husband of 27 years, "You okay? Are you feeling lightheaded?"

In response, Consuelos laughed it off, admitting, "No, I kind of floated away there for a little bit."

Ripa then said that Consuelos has “not seen me without a bra” in some time, but noted that if he had, it was “very carefully orchestrated.”

“It’s much worse than you think,” Ripa added to Consuelos, though her husband — whom she shares kids Michael, Lola and Joaquin with — responded, “I think it’s perfect.”
