Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Surprise Homeland's Mandy Patinkin With Former Flames


Last December, Homeland star Mandy Patinkin appeared on LIVE with Kelly and Michael, where the hosts had a little treat for him. They relayed a woman named Sandy had written them, saying she was Patinkin’s first kiss! 

The Broadway vet looked delighted to hear about his childhood sweetheart, and admitted to trying to find her in the past.  After the show, he got her information. 

The happily married Patinkin recently returned to LIVE to promote his new film The Wind Rises. The hosts brought up Sandy, and the Yentl star said he planned on visiting. Cue Sandy walking out to surprise her former flame!

If that wasn’t crazy enough, the sneaky cohosts then asked Patinkin about other girlfriends he’d want to find. The Princess Bride star admitted he’d asked CIA contacts to track down his college girlfriend, Lenore, to no avail. Then, Lenore walked out and stunned her old boyfriend!

Patinkin was grateful to be reconnected with his former gal pals, and said they’d stay in touch. Who knew the producers of LIVE were so good at espionage?
