Kelly Ripa was a no-show on Wednesday's episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael, leading to rampant speculation she's pissed off with Michael Strahan for not giving her a head's up about his upcoming defection for Good Morning America. According to TMZ, Disney CEO Bob Iger warned Strahan not to blab to anyone about his new gig.

The entertainment gossip site also claims Ripa and Strahan don't get along and that Strahan goes around with a big posse. Adding more tea for the rumor pitcher, E! Online claims Ripa is "livid" over Strahan's exit. TMZ reports Strahan has tried to reach out to Ripa, but the former All My Children star has allegedly not responded. D-R-A-M-A!
