Kelly Ripa Does Not Mention Former Co-Host Michael Strahan In New Book


Kelly Ripa reportedly snubbed Michael Strahan in her new memoir but it doesn’t appear to bother him. Kelly has given a preview of her new book Live Wire: Long Winded Short Stories to certain publications and it reportedly doesn’t mention Michael at all, despite the pair working together for four years.

Kelly and Michael were talk show co-hosts until Michael’s sudden departure for Good Morning America. Kelly has now admitted that she was blindsided by the news and she was very mad at the time. She said she found out at the same time the press did and subsequently took a few days off from the show to process the information.

Despite the drama, she apparently did not want to discuss it more in length in her book. However, she does share stories of her former co-host Regis Philbin, who passed away in 2020. She shares that despite their great chemistry, things were not always easy while working with him on the show.

Even though Michael was snubbed by Kelly, he doesn’t seem bothered. He recently shared a new ad for Men’s Wearhouse, where he talks about how he is always smiling. In the ad he says, wearing clothing from the brand, “I never stop smiling because I am happy. I am innately happy people. I wake up smiling. I go to sleep smiling. I dream smiling.”

He added, “All I do is smile. I think smiling sets the mood for your day. You cannot control anything else except for your attitude. And looking at a smile, even if it’s on your own face, makes you feel better about yourself and your attitude.”
