Kelly Ripa is set to play a sexy new role on “Riverdale.”

Guest starring alongside her husband Mark Consuelos, she’ll play Hiram Lodge’s mistress on the show, reports ET. Ripa shared the news on Instagram.

She jokingly wrote:

It’s a family affair……..Hiram’s mistress. 23 years of auditioning for a role I was born to play. Coming soon to [Riverdale].

However, her flirty banter didn’t seem to stop there. The mother of three found herself in a situation where she ended up completely embarrassing her two children, Michael and Lola.

As reported by People, in a series of Instagram stories, Michael, 21, and Lola, 17, asked their mom to please stop posting risqué videos with their dad, because it was slightly mortifying to watch their parent’s sexually suggestive humor in public.

While riding in a car on the way to the “Riverdale” set, Ripa captured a shot of the couple and humorously wrote:

I’m usually against his mistresses but this time I’ll make an exception.

To which her husband added in his own witty post:

Bring side piece to work day.

It certainly looked as if the stories were all in good fun, but everything about the playful exchange between the couple was cringeworthy for their children — especially when the actress announced on camera that the two were “hanging out” in her husband’s trailer.

Consuelos responded back:

“What could possibly go wrong?”

In response to her parent’s video, Lola replied:

 This has got to go.

The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” host shared a screenshot of the message.

Just a few minutes later, her son responded back with the same request. Michael wrote:

I agree with Lola.

Ripa replied back with a cheeky caption:

I’m about to block my whole family.

“Riverdale” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
