Kelly Ripa Michael Strahan Departure Kelly Refusing To Return
Fans immediately noticed that Ripa was not present at this morning’s Live. Multiple insiders told The Daily Mail that, in the wake of the news of his departure, Ripa is refusing to return to work until Strahan is gone.
An insider dished that, “‘Kelly isn’t making any demands. She is very hurt that Disney hasn’t even spoken to her yet so they are assuming that she isn’t coming back.”
“She wants to wait and see what happens,” the insider added. “She’d also like someone to do the right thing and speak to her face to face rather than plot and plan behind her back.”
