Things are not going well between Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan ever since he announced his decision to leave ‘Live’, but they’re far from the first pair who’ve feuded behind-the-scenes of a show. Click through the gallery to check out the worst TV cast feuds ever!
Professionals know how to turn on the charm for the cameras, but it’s not always BFF-ville behind-the-scenes! From Kelly Ripa, 45, and Michael Strahan, 44, on Live to Lea Michele, 29, and Naya Rivera, 29, on Glee, see the nine biggest TV show feuds ever here.
We’re right in the middle of Kelly and Michael’s big battle right now, but if you haven’t been following, here’s a summary: He announced on April 19 that he was leaving Live! at the end of summer for a full-time role on GMA…and Kelly didn’t find out until the SAME time as the rest of the world. Since the big reveal, she hasn’t shown up to co-host, and she it’s reported that they’ll never sit next to each other at the desk again.
On Gossip Girl, Serena and Blair might’ve been besties, but they were constantly getting in fights…and that’s reportedly exactly what was going on off-camera between Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. The gals supposedly couldn’t stand each other, although Blake has denied a feud and Leighton has said that, even though they don’t hang out off-set, there’s “no animosity.”
It was similar between Naya and Lea, who reportedly fought non-stop while working on Glee. There were even reports that Naya plans to write all about it in an upcoming memoir, but Lea has denied a feud. “It’s really unbelievable the amount of things that can just be completely made up,” she said in 2014.
But the fighting between Beverly Hills 90210 co-stars Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth, who teamed up with BFF Tori Spelling, was definitely the real deal. “There were times when we wanted to claw each other’s eyes out,” Jennie has admitted, adding that she and Shannen often “butted heads,” but are friends today. That didn’t stop them from getting in a fist fight on-set, though — which Tori detailed in its entirety in her 2015 memoir!
