Michael Strahan Leaving Live Sooner Rather Than Later


Last week there were rumors that Kelly Ripa was refusing to work with Michael Strahan after being blindsided by reports that Michael had been promoted to full time anchor on Good Morning America [click here if you missed that].

Were the rumors just proven true..?

Today ABC announced that Michael Strahan's last day on Live with Kelly and Michael is Friday May 13th.

Michael was not expected to join Good Morning America full time until September.

The only people at fault here is the Executives @ ABC - poor leadership and decisions.

I guess she thought by her throwing a tantrum would get her what she wanted and that was for Michael to leave early and garner public sympathy for being the woman who was disrespected by ABC brass. I guess it may have worked in the interim, but believe me Iger already knows the fate of Live. Because at the end of the day, ABC is their CASH COW and the honchos are only interested in keeping GMA #1 because the Today show is definitely nipping at GMA’s heals in terms of ratings. More than likely they will wait until Kelly’s contract is up, and then cancel the show citing low ratings.

And for the life of me, I will never understand why Kelly was mad at Michael when his BOSS told him to keep his mouth shut. And by her actions this morning, now I see why, with her standing on her soap box telling the audience why she took off and pulling her own chair out to sit down when Michael has been doing it for years. #Petty.

Kelly has been in this game for 20 years and knows the industry is cut throat. Not saying it’s right but she was the one who signed up for it. Believe me if the shoe was on the other foot, Kelly would have done the same damn thing to protect her “coins” so she can support that barely working husband hers, her upper east side townhome, house in the Hamptons and the 50 11 kids of theirs.

Well Kelly, I hope it works for you because instead of you coming to work like a professional when everything went down and keep it pushing, you will be known as the woman who will throw a tantrum when something doesn’t go your way.

At 4:01 - you said it the best...she is about to be Gone

@4:01 pm how can you write an essay and then you say you don't understand why she's mad???? DUHHHHHHH

SHES OUT OF A JOB

Laa soul said...

@4:01. Reading is fundamental and can be your friend. If you re-read my essay then you will clearly understand that I said she had no reason to be mad at Michael because his boss told him not to say ANYTHING to ANYONE. She needs to take her concerns about her job security with ABC brass and not blame Michael because he doesn't call the shots there. Do you understand now?

Well I am sure he's not hurting for cash. He cant take this time to chill with his family and go take a vacation if he feels like it before the full time gig with GMA.

His pay would remain the way it is. He's under contract.
