  • How in the heck did Mark Consuelos gets on American Horror? I mean he’s a one note actor and I think the only reason he got on there was a favor to Kelly

  • Mark Consuelos is one of the rudest celebrities, no, rudest people, have ever met. He is also a bit of a chauvinist.

  • As long as they don’t have Kelly Ripa guest on AHS, I’m okay. But that guy is not a good actor.

  • Well, he wasn’t too horrible on an episode of L&O:SVU this season is about all I could say about him. Maybe Ryan Murphy just wants to have “storyline discussions” in Consuelo’s trailer, preferably while Consuelos is only in his tighty-whities?
