Kelly Ripa was spotted today in New York City just two days after her ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’ cohost, Michael Strahan, announced he’s leaving the show for good. See the photos of a smiling Kelly right here!
Kelly Ripa, 45, and Michael Strahan, 44, may be drowning in drama right now, but Kelly is trying to stay positive. She left her NYC townhouse on April 21 wearing a huge smile along with her husband Mark Consuelos, 45, likely on their way to Turks & Caicos. Check out the pics!
Kelly appeared to be in good spirits as she and Mark headed into a limo. She sported a springlike patterned dress, black peeptoe heels and a bright red mani-pedi, clearly prepared for her trip to Turks & Caicos. “It’s fortuitous that she had this trip planned with her husband and it wouldn’t be surprising if she stared early,” a source told People. Kelly and Mark are taking the trip to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and the getaway was booked way before Michael’s announcement dropped.
As we previously told you, the question of who is going to replace the former football star as Kelly’s cohost still remains. “They are going to have another search and they are hoping it will be someone brand new and someone not expected,” an insider has told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Someone that embodies the pleasant surprise that Kelly was when she got the job and Michael was when he got the job.” It’s a tough role to fill, but fans of the show already have plenty of ideas about who should replace Michael (be sure to vote in our poll if you haven’t yet)!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kelly is really as cheerful as she seems? Sound off in the comments!
