Kelly’s memoir, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories. she reveals a frightening incident. She writes that it took place six months after the birth of their first child in 1998.

The couple had been in the middle of having sex when Kelly fell unconscious. Despite, what some might think, it was terrifying for Kelly and her husband.

The next thing Kelly remembers is waking up in the emergency room. And while it wasn’t clear why she lost consciousness, doctors informed her that she had two ovarian cysts.

 “My eyes shift between the fuzzy images on the screen, the remnants of my ovarian tormentor, and Mark happily snacking away,” she writes.

She continued, talking about how the incident impacted her:

 “Sex can be so traumatic I think, and yet one of us is completely undaunted,” she explains. “There he is, happily munching on the saltines now and ordering a second apple juice. Mark could be at a movie, or a spa. Instead, I’m flat on my back wondering when the other two cysts will burst.”

Of course, Kelly is trying to make light of the situation, but it is terrifying. She also jokes about another horrifying realization — the clothing her husband put on her before taking her to the hospital. She recalls looking down and realizing she was wearing a 1980s French-cut leotard, a pair of oversized track pants, and “f**k me” Manolo Blahniks.

“Also, here is my husband, who is, dare I say, stylish, well-dressed at all times, and yet he dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need,” Kelly writes. “It’s still baffling to me to this day that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me, to the point where, when I was on the stretcher, I thought I was dreaming; I was having a nightmare. I didn’t realize I had come to.”

Kelly and Mark both seem to have an extraordinary relationship. They’ve been married for 26 years, and the talk show host gives credit to Mark for allowing her to write about their life freely in her new memoir.

“He allowed me to share these intimate moments because frankly, I think he found them entertaining,” she told Haute Living. “At the end of the day, I don’t think he would still be in this marriage if he didn’t find me entertaining.”
