Kelly Ripa is ready to shake up “Riverdale.”
The daytime TV host is set to play the mistress of husband Mark Consuelos‘ character, Hiram Lodge, on the CW series, Entertainment Tonight confirmed Tuesday.
“It’s a family affair …….. Hiram’s mistress. 23 years of auditioning for a role I was born to play. Coming soon to the @thecwriverdale,” Ripa, 48, posted Tuesday on Instagram.
As Mrs. Mulwray, Ripa’s character is described as “Confident and tough… she’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”
Ripa isn’t the only member of the Consuelos clan stepping into “Riverdale.” On Wednesday, son Michael, 21, will make his debut on the beloved drama, in which he’ll play a young Hiram. Consuelos, 47, joined the show in Season 2.
