Michael Strahan “Never Wanted” Kelly Ripa Drama

Kelly Ripa Honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa are going to have an awkward Tuesday morning when the duo will finally share the Live with Kelly and Michael stage since his departure announcement and her mini boycott. According to a source Michael is “looking forward to having Kelly Ripa back on Live! He never wanted any of this to happen. He got why she was mad but it was out of his control. He spent the last few days reaching out because he wanted her to come back.”

Michael even thanked Kelly during Wednesday’s show. “I really want to thank, of course, Kelly Ripa. Kelly welcomed me here, and I’ve learned so much from her. She’s just been an amazing influence on me and this has truly changed my life to be here with her.”

“He was prepared to go on by himself if he had to, but he is relieved that it all worked out,” the source added. Kelly jetted off to the Caribbean to get away from the noise, but she will be back on Tuesday.
