Kelly Ripa Refusing to Work with Michael Strahan?


Yesterday news leaked that Kelly Ripa had been left in the dark about Michael Strahan's promotion to full time anchor on Good Morning America [click here if you missed that].

Today Kelly was a no-show for the big announcement on Live with Kelly and Michael and sources claim she is refusing to come back to work until Michael is gone for good...

From The Daily Mail
No reason was given for the sudden absence and it is now unclear when she will return to the work as multiple sources at ABC tell DailyMail.com that Ripa is refusing to turn up to work until Strahan leaves the show.
The sources claim that Ripa was blindsided by the decision to move Strahan, adding that the company thinks the success of Good Morning America is more important than Live, and had grown concerned as GMA has become increasingly threatened by Today in recent months.
Michael is set to begin on Good Morning America in September.

It's not like this is a promotion for him. He's a professional, so of course he's going to smile and roll with it. Going from basically his own show to an ensemble cast? He was Volun-told and really had no choice. She should be mad at ABC, not him.

@2:15 I guess you don't understand media. This is in every way a HUGE promotion for Michael in terms of salary and becoming full time on GMA!
GMA is big bank for ABC, where most of the money and advertising lies in the morning!
I can't say I blame Michael as this puts him in a way different league...
I also understand Kelly being hurt about the whole thing, especially when the CEO steps in for negotiations he's usually not a part of, it's speaks VOLUMES on the next step..Kelly's hurt has MUCH more to do than Michael, there's a whole shift going on, now Live is in jeopardy, smh

I love to see those dummy blacks who put their trust in these white cave demons, get majorly disappointed when said cave demons show how they really feel about a black person

@3:37 you are part of the reason racism still exists. And no I'm not white

I still don't know who Kelly Ripa is or where she came from...

@3:37 - WTF are you talkin' 'bout? The "black" is being promoted, the "cave demon" can kick rocks..

@3:05 - I agree that this move signifies a major shift and Kelly's future maybe in jeopardy. I believe she is also hurt that Michael is moving up but I am glad Michael did not allow loyalty to Kelly to prevent his promotion (that 2nd divorce taught him well). GMA is a better move for him and hopefully Michael will be able to take up more causes and serious subjects in his new role.

2:46, she just might be in love with him. If it was a woman then she'd be jealous, but I think her and Michael had a lot of chemistry and she doesn't want him to go.

Although it would have been nice if Iger would have extended a courtesy to Kelly by informing her of the changes, at the end of the day that’s all it would have been, “nice”. Kelly has been in the game for OVER 20 years and knows the industry is cut throat where NO ONE is owed loyalty.
I may be willing to give her a pass for missing today to give her a chance to digest the feeling of being blindsided because we all handle change differently, but I am sure she knows that people will be talking about her absence and how she will handle acknowledging Michael’s farewell on t.v. when she returns.
The best thing she can do is regroup today, come back on tomorrow, say some kind words to Michael about him leaving, whether she means it or not and keep it pushing. That is what a professional does.
I mean really what did she expect Michael to do go against his boss’ instructions of keeping his move on the hush hush, run back and tell her? Where they do that at? She know damn well if the shoe was on the other foot she would do anything to protect her “coins”.
At the end of the day, how many people can say they make millions a year in their line of work and can be home before their kids come home from school?

Replace that bitch

Anonymous said...

She came off like she wanted to screw Michael, whereas he looked at it as just a job..sooo, basically, she's demanding that he lose his job or she won't return, huh? I hope they replace her dramatic a&& & make her clean up backstage...Michael can run the show by himself..she comes across as a phony to me anyway!
Michael Strahan is on his way UP. I hope he doesn't let one of these blond tramps get him like Tiki Barber got got!!!
White women are the WORST when they can't get their way!!!Chick demanding that ABC get rid of Michael..yeah ok, don't think they won't cancel your contract Kelly..evil tramp. She made his promotion ALL ABOUT HER IN TYPICAL WHITE PPL FASHION.

@7:03 pm hit the nail on the head.

@12:41, true! Lol...That's what she gets for getting Regis fired from his own show. Regis and Kathy Lee were better anyway.Micheal knows LIVE isn't a show you stay with because it's shaky and they will drop you.
