Kelly Ripa Absent From 'Live' as Michael Strahan Announces His Exit (Video)

Kelly Ripa was absent from her show Live! with Kelly and Michael today (April 20), the day after it was announced that Michael Strahan would be leaving the show to head to Good Morning America full time in the fall.

Sources tell TMZ that Kelly was blindsided by the news and found out just as word was spreading to the public. She’s reportedly very embarrassed and upset that she wasn’t given a head’s up, and she may be absent for the foreseeable future.

Kelly‘s sub today is Ana Gasteyer, and Michael made the announcement official to the Live audience today. Watch below…

    She is the nobody in this relationship so she now desperately needs to find someone else famous that she can attach herself to. Can understand why she is upset.

    Not cool Michael. I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes between Kelly and Michael, but obviously there seem to be some issues. Since Michael couldn’t even be professional enough to tell Kelly himself.

    Total unprofessional not to tell Kelly Yourself after 4 Years together. I don’t blame Her for being upset.

  • Lillian Eversole

    Regardless of what went on behind the scenes, what happened here is wrong on so many levels. She has been the staple of that show for 15 years, and producers of ABS show so little respect to her that they go behind her back like this is unforgivable not to mention unprofessional. I don’t blame her at all for being pissed. If I was her I would not come back until he leaves in August. Shame on them for treating her like a non entity. Love her or hate her, she deserved better than she got from all involved
