Kelly Ripa To Return To ‘Live’ On Tuesday
Kelly Ripa‘s hissy fit is over and she’s ready to return to “Live! with Kelly and Michael,” according to an email she sent her staff on Friday evening.
After she was “blindsided” by the exciting news of Michael Strahan‘s move to “Good Morning America,” Kelly went completely M.I.A. and refused to return to the show.
According to her email, she needed “time to process the new information.”
Here’s the scoop via The Hollywood Reporter:
“(Sorry for this late Friday night email),” she said in the email. “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. Love, Kelly.”
She didn’t show up to Live on Wednesday, after hearing the news that Strahan would be leaving the show for a full-time post at Good Morning America. Ripa, the show’s staff and executive producer Michael Gelman didn’t learn about his departure until Tuesday’s show.
Ana Gasteyer and Erin Andrews took Ripa’s place for the episodes she missed. Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell will co-host with Strahan on Monday, due to a previously scheduled vacation of Ripa’s, a representative tells The Hollywood Reporter.
I will definitely be tuned in to see how they will address Kelly stompin the ABC yard.
