Michael Strahan BAILED on Kelly Ripa, and now ALL HELL HAS BROKEN LOSE.
Sources connected to Kelly and ‘Live’ say that although Michael was under strict orders by Disney CEO Bob Iger not to tell anyone about his move to ‘GMA,’ Kelly feels he should have given her a heads-up. But she ALSO feels that he’s disrespectful to her and is full of himself. Apparently Michael often rolls with an entourage and it doesn’t sit well with her, so I guess he was supposed to give someone he didn’t like a heads up?
But then this part seems respectful: TMZ reports that Michael sat down with Kelly, EP Michael Gelman and the General Manager of WABC at 10:30 AM Tuesday, just as Disney made the announcement. Michael then reached out to Kelly after the announcement but she has not responded. At the end of Wednesday’s show, he extended an olive branch by singing Kelly’s praises.
I LOVE THIS! What will become of Kelly?! The show? Stay tuned…
