It’s finally happening. Kelly Ripa is making a triumphant and totally uncomfortable return to Live on Tuesday, April 26, and the first guest is already hoping to make a splash by calling out the obvious. Thankfully, Michael Strahan is totally expecting to do the same, so maybe this will all work out as planned!
“Conor is scheduled to appear on Tuesday’s show and Michael expects a lot of jokes will be thrown around over the problems that Kelly and Michael are having and the ones that Conor and Dana White are having,” a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “As much as they are different problems, they are sort of the same as well. Michael knows that Conor who has a big mouth will mention the tension and is ready to expect the unexpected.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kelly went totally MIA the day after Michael made the shocking announcement that he was leaving Live for a full-time gig on Good Morning America. Many reports suggested that Kelly was left in the dark about his departure, which is why she chose to bail on the show for what reps called a “pre-planned” vacation. As if that wasn’t awkward enough, Kelly and her family never even left New York City. Hmm.
Michael is also really “nervous” about what’s going to go down when Kelly returns to Live, as pretty much anything is possible. To learn more about how Michael is preparing for Kelly’s return, make sure you check out HollywoodLife.com‘s EXCLUSIVE reporting here.
