Now that Michael Strahan is out the door at Live! everyone wants to know who will take his seat next to Kelly Ripa. So everyone is hoping for Anderson Cooper to take Strahan’s spot and he would love it.

During a stop at Watch What Happens Live a fan called in and asked Cooper, “How do you feel about all the drama over at Live with Kelly and Michael, and would you be open to co-hosting?” He replied, “Listen, I love Kelly and I think that show is… Kelly is the heart and soul of that show and it’s going to go on and continue to be great and I wish Michael the best in his new endeavor.” But the CNN host is a little busy.”Look, I’m very happy at CNN. It would be a dream to work with Kelly, but nobody’s offering anything, so…” 

But you know who might be in the running Mario Lopez. The Extra host did not deny rumors that has attached him to Live! while visiting Ellen. “That’s very flattering. Very flattering. You’re so nice. I know, people were saying that. I love Kelly. I’ve guest hosted with her a few times she’s awesome. I actually did a movie with her husband, Mark, who’s a real good guy.” He kinda made it seem like he would be into the new gig, but his wife is the real boss. “Well, I got to go over everything with Mrs. Lopez. She’s the real boss of the house so we’ll see what she has to say about that.”
