These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Mark Consuelos knows a thing or two about being in the spotlight. The actor got his start on the soap opea "All My Children" in 1995 and fell in love with his co-star, Kelly Ripa. (Yes, that Kelly Ripa.) The pair secretly wed in Las Vegas in 1996 and have been together ever since. Now, he's gearing up for his new Amazon comedy series, "Alpha House."
Consuelos appeared on HuffPost Live yesterday (Nov. 13) to discuss the show and his marriage to Ripa and happily agreed to take HuffPost's Celebrity's #nofilter challenge.

Being a part of the Menudo band.
What happens in your recurring dream?
I haven’t studied for a math test and I don’t know where the math test is taking place in college, but I know I have to show up and cheat. What does that mean? I’m not prepared? I’m going through life unprepared?

I believe offensive lineman in football. No, I’m just joking. I’m just tired of hearing about these two guys [Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin] bullying the other, who cares?

When I’m with my family.
