Kelly Ripa may be boycotting the show and even threatening to leave, but she needs that sweet, sweet cash.
As we reported, Kelly has been LIVID after getting blindsided by ABC’s announcement that Michael Strahan is leaving ‘Live’ for ‘GMA.’ If she’s not back in the chair Thursday, she won’t be back until Tuesday at the earliest.
But apparently, nobody’s worried that Ripa will bail on the show. REAL TALK: Kelly makes just shy of $15 million a year, and her and hubby Mark like to spend that sweet sweet CASH. The two bought a big townhouse on the Upper East Side of NYC a year ago, and they have a mansion in The Hamptons. Gotta keep working to pay that mortgage!
As one source put it, “She makes a lot of money, but she spends a lot of money, and so does he.”
