Michael Strahan dropped a bombshell earlier this week when he announced that he was leaving Live With Kelly and Michael for greener pastures over at Good Morning America. The move is said to have blindsided the entire crew including co-host Kelly Ripa, who did not appear on the show for the rest of the week. Many wondered if she would be jumping ship, too.
Now, it looks like we have an answer. Her one-woman boycott will be over by next week, as she is set to return to her hosting duties on Tuesday. The television personality broke the news to her staff in an email late Friday night, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"(Sorry for this late Friday night email)," she wrote. "I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information. Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. Love, Kelly."
Ana Gasteyer and Erin Andrews are scheduled to take over on Monday since Ripa had already requested time off before the whole ordeal. With Strahan on his way out, that first show together after the big announcement is sure to be hella awkward. Can’t wait to watch it all unfold.
