Michael Strahan Losing It on GMA?


Last year Michael Strahan caused a stir after abruptly leaving Live with Kelly and Michael for a seat at the Good Morning America anchor desk [click here if you missed that].

Now insiders claiming Michael's hire has been a complete bust...


From Star Magazine
Good Morning America is having some serious second thoughts about new host Michael Strahan.
“He’s just underwhelming, even with cue cards right in front of him,” says the source, explaining that Michael seemed to do better with the unscripted banter of Live with Kelly and Michael. “Now that he has to announce specific things and lead into stories his delivery is completely stilted.”
Unwilling to risk bad press, GMA is stuck forking out $20 million a year to the former NFL star, much to the ire of his fed up cohost Robin Roberts.
“And no one is willing to coach him because he would absolutely flip out. His ego is as big as his paycheck.”

I don't believe this for a minute. They're was a blind over at CDAN saying that a late night talk show host was spreading rumors,abt a daytime talk show host. Everyone thought it was Wendy and Andy, but now I think about it, it's probably Andy talking about Michael.

Remember Andy is ace boom coom with Kelly Ripa and we all know how she took Michael's exit....

I watch GMA every morning and I think Michael does a great job and he brings a fun lightness to the show.

I agree with above posts. I like Robin Roberts and all but Michael is THE only reason I watch GMA.

Michael does a decent job but personally, I prefer an experienced journalist delivering news & adding to the subject. I feel they gave him a big role too fast. I thought he was going to pop in & out like TJ Holmes.....but I can see where he may be overwhelmed by the shows structure. The Kelly Show was much easier & less time...not sure what he thought

I can't stand Michael "Daffy Duck" Strahan. How does he keep getting these gigs?

I watch every morning too and he provides some of the unscripted humor as opposed to Tj and Lara's written jokes. I think he gets on as well as he can. I dont know if I believe this but it wouldn't be the first time the networks were wrong if it is true.

8:05 I read that and you're right. I thought it was Wendy, but Andy probably has delusions of grandeur and thinks that if he forces Michael out he'll get a seat on GMA...Or that he'll get hired at "Live." He obviously forgot we're in the homophobic Trump era now AND Middle America finds him annoying.

Andy Cohen needs to mind his own business. Michael is doing just fine.

This sounds like pure BS.

If this is true Andy Cohen needs to stick to taking trips to Brazil with best bud Anderson Cooper where they have sex with the just legel young boys or attend the exclusive after hours sex parties at The Eastern Bloc in NYC.

FYI - The Eastern Bloc is the gay club owned by Anderson Cooper's boyfriend Benjamin Maisani. There are super private super selective gay sex parties that are held there a couple of times a month. There two types parties - one party for celebs, male models and athletes; the other party for hot non-famous patrons hand picked by Benjamin and his staff.

So Andy needs to be quiet before someone puts him on full blast.

Andy Cohen is a sneaky mess. Allegedly, he likes to throw dinner parties with all male guests where the only thing on the menu is young men. LOL.

Back to Michael Strahan. I like Michael but in my opinion he was better suited on LIVE with Kelly. On GMA most of the hosts are seasoned journalists and I'm sure some are upset that Strahan stepped into their realm making 20 mil a year.
