Kelly Ripa Provides Update on Finding New 'Live!' Co-Host

Kelly Ripa has given fans an update on the Live! co-host search, which has been on-going since Michael Strahan left the show in May.

“We really didn’t set a timeframe for ourselves, we just wanted to wait until we found the right person,” the 46-year-old talk show host said on Watch What Happens Live!. “What we didn’t anticipate was that we would have such an outpouring of interest, so our list got very long very quickly. So we’ve been trying to keep it as narrow as possible, but then people pop up.”

Anderson [Cooper] re-signed with CNN, but he would have been your number one pick, right Kelly?” Andy Cohen asked. If you didn’t know, Kelly and Anderson are best friends.

“He’s my life. He really is,” Kelly responded. “He’s the one that got away and keeps getting away and gets away all the time.”
