"This is your thirst trappy reminder to watch an all NUDE #riverdale TONIGHT on @thecwriverdale 8/7 central. Did i say nude? I meant new ??" Ripa captioned the smokin' hot shot, promoting her hubby's CW show.
One commenter wanted the 49-year-old talk show host to tone her posts down, writing, "Ok ok kids let's keep it PG you're embarrassing your kids!!!!"
Always ready with a clapback, Ripa replied, "@fsuth29 that's why I have Instagram."
On Thursday's Live With Kelly and Ryan, co-host Ryan Seacrest also brought up the image, which Ripa noted was shot while she was testing out the new iPhone camera. Seacrest added that she can't be posting shirtless photos of her hubby because it makes everyone else feel bad.
Ripa has been candid in the past about her kids and their take on social media. Back in August, she opened up about posting some photos of her 18-year-old daughter, Lola, at prom, jokingly telling pal Jerry O'Connell, "Took me 20 hours to get that photo. I was like, 'Please just give Mommy one. Just one photo!'"
Ripa and Consuelos' oldest kids are no longer living at home. Lola is off at college at NYU and Michael, their eldest, is a senior at NYU and is living in Brooklyn, NY. Ripa recently opened up about the "extreme poverty" Michael is experiencing.
