Kelly Ripa has FINALLY broken her silence to reveal when she will return to ‘Live’ after her extended hiatus following the Michael Strahan drama. When is she coming back to our screens? Click here to find out!
That’s a relief! Our mornings haven’t been the same since Kelly Ripa, 45, took a self-imposed exile from Live, not discrediting Erin Andrews of course who did a wonderful job as stand-in. But now, Kelly has told us when she plans on returning to the morning show after all that Michael Strahan, 44, drama and it’s sooner than you think!
So, Kelly sent an email late on Friday, April 22 all around the Live staff to tell them exactly how she feels and when she will be coming back to the show. Drumroll please… she’s back Tuesday!
“I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information,” Ripa said to Live staff in an email that Deadline has managed to get their hands on. “Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning,” she added.
After learning that her co-host Michael was heading to Good Morning America, which he already works on 2-days a week, for a full-time gig, Kelly went MIA. She was believed to have been blindsided by the development by the ABC network, which is why she reacted in such a way.
That first episode since the scandal on Apr. 26 they host together is going to be awkward to say the least. We can’t wait to see how Kelly and Michael interact with one another!
HollywoodLifers, are you glad that Kelly has decided to return to Live? Do you think there will be any on-air tensions between her and Michael on set on Tuesday? Tell us what you think below!
