Kelly Ripa to Return to 'Live!' Alongside Michael Strahan Next Week

Kelly Ripa will return to Live! with Kelly & Michael next week following her weeklong absence.

Both Kelly and her co-host Michael Strahan are set to fulfill their hosting duties together starting next Tuesday (April 26).

“I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information. Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning,” Kelly reportedly said in a staff email.

Kelly has not returned to the talk show since Michael announced last Tuesday that he would be leaving the show for Good Morning America.

She is reportedly not replying to his attempts to contact her and the network “does not yet know what she wants” but Michael “wants her to come back.”

    So you saying we can cancel the AWOL alert with the Department of Labor ?

    Michael probably should have given her a heads up before the show. That was not good how he threw it out there with no warning. It would’ve been better for him to just quit. Now it will be fakery on her part until he leaves because of his actions.

    He should do what his bosses tell him. If they told him not to say beforehand, then that’s what he had to do. Don’t assume that it was his decision not to tell her. He still works for these people just like she does. Ripa is supposed to be a professional, these things happen all the time. It’s BUSINESS. She should have been pissed, but done her job like she’s PAID to do. She’s been around along time and this isn’t the first co-host who has quit or moved on.

    Contract obligation.

    i don’t think he has a choice, he’s an employee. it’s probably written into his new contract how he would leave his old job, and telling beforehand may have voided that contract. it’s all underhanded and much more involved than we know and see, and Kelly – as an entertainer – should know that as well. you can’t really fault him, but her actions are showing immaturity.

    The whole thing was a publicity stunt. Lame.
