Don't expect to see Kelly Ripa back on her morning show until at least Tuesday. Disney-ABC released a statement claiming the talk show host already scheduled Friday and Monday off, trying to quell suspicion she's boycotting Live! With Kelly and Michael because she's ticked at the way she found out about Michael Strahan's upcoming exit for Good Morning America.
NFL great-turned-broadcaster Strahan has been Ripa's co-host on Live! since 2012. He succeeded original host Regin Philbin, who exited the syndicated hit a year earlier. He began contributing to GMA segments in 2012.
