Ever since Michael Strahan’s announcement of his move to Good Morning America full time from Live with Kelly & Michael, we’ve been following the fallout between Strahan and his co-host of four years, Kelly Ripa.
Ripa did not show up on the show today, and though Strahan did acknowledge his announcement at the beginning of the show, he did not specifically acknowledge Ripa until the end:
Rumors are swirling that Ripa is furious she was not made aware of Strahan’s move until Tuesday, the same day it hit the news, and might take the rest of the week or even longer off. Some are speculating she may not return altogether.
There are of course other rumors that Live is already pursuing Strahan’s replacement, and names like Jerry O’Connell, Anderson Cooper and Neil Patrick Harris have been tossed in the ring.
Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Strahan called today a “hard day,” which I’m sure it has been.
