This has been a huge gossip filled week for Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan and as a fan of hers, I am so glad that she is back to work on Live with Kelly and Michael. A lot has been said about her being a diva through all of this but I am going to disagree with that. The way that ABC has treated her currently and in the past when Regis left is horrible and they have not given her the respect she deserves. Let’s be real this is her show, she ran Live with Kelly in search of a co-host years ago and she rocked it.
ABC has acknowledged wrong doing and publicly apologized to Kelly. Even though this has happened the public still like to blame Kelly for it. Isn’t it time that we stopped hating on women for standing up for themselves. I think she is fantastic at her job and a real tough cookie. She is the type of woman who young girls can look up to and in fact I have been looking up to her for decades. The show was around before Michael and it will continue to thrive without him. I have to add, I am also a huge Michael Strahan fan and he will do amazing things over at GMA.
I honestly think that Kelly does not even need a co-host. She could run this show with guest hosts on a permanent basis. I definitely thought she did an amazing job at it last time she was left without a co-host. That is just my idea. If I had to choose I would go with Neil Patrick Harris as my top choice and Jerry O’Connell as a runner-up. What are your thoughts, who would be your choice as a new co-host for Kelly Ripa?
