Kelly Ripa Joins 'Riverdale' as Hiram's Mistress

All My Children alum Kelly Ripa is the latest family member in the Consuelos family to join the cast of Riverdale.

On Tuesday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host revealed to her followers that she would be starring alongside her husband Mark Consuelos on the CW drama, playing his character Hiram Lodge's mistress.

"It's a family affair," she wrote on Instagram, alongside a dimly-lit photo of herself where she sits crossed-legged in the big leather armchair and holds a whip in her hands.

"Hiram's mistress. 23 years of auditioning for a role I was born to play," she joked. "Coming soon to the @thecwriverdale"

Ripa's character, Mrs. Mulwray, is said to be 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," Entertainment Tonight reported.

Mark Consuelos joined the CW’s take on the Archie comics in season 2 as mobster Hiram, the scheming father of Veronica Lodge.

This past August, it was announced that the couple's eldest child would play a younger version of his dad’s character in the third season of Riverdale, which premiered on October 10.

Entertainment Weekly reported that Michael Consuelos would appear in a flashback episode which stars KJ Apa and Lili Reinhart who would take on the roles of their on-screen parents, too.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
