Uh oh! It turns out that Kelly Ripa’s no-shows to ‘Live With Kelly & Michael’ on April 20 and 21 may have strained her relationship with her crew on the show. A report claims that they’re angry with her and think she’s ‘acting deeply selfish.’ Here’s the scoop.
Well, work is going to be awkward for Kelly Ripa, 45, next week when she returns to Live With Kelly & Michael. She refused to come in this week since being blindsided by the news that Michael Strahan, 44, is leaving her high and dry in Sept., but apparently her crew found that to be “deeply selfish.” See what else they’re saying, here.
Kelly may have needed a few days to get her thoughts straight after being shocked by the news that Michael was bailing on their show together to go star on Good Morning America after only 4 years at her side, but her crew took it to be much more nefarious. They’re actually siding more with Michael now since she played hooky.
“They feel like Michael’s taking the high road but Kelly’s the one who blindsided them by not showing up for work,” a source tells Daily Mail. “The feeling is that how she’s acting is deeply selfish.” Oh no! We don’t really think that’s fair, everyone deserves a day off once and a while and Kelly had already planned to take Friday and Monday off.
Unfortunately, the extra two days she added to her vacation added a lot more work to her employee’s agenda. “Staff are upset that she’s not there,” the source continued. “They are pulling a double shift today while she’s left them in the lurch after her tantrum.” Yikes!
