Kelly Ripa Furious with Michael Strahan


Kelly Ripa is angry with her co-host Michael Strahan taking credit for their show's bump in ratings.

KELLY RIPA is more than livid – she’s FURIOUS at newbie co-host MICHAEL STRAHAN for boasting that he’s the reason the show’s ratings have been booming, say insiders.
The former NFL defensive end has been mighty offensive as far as the 42-year-old blonde beauty is concerned because he’s claiming viewers are flocking to the show to watch him since he replaced Regis Philbin in September.
The gridiron-star – who was just named a fi¬nalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame – is also taking credit for “Live Kelly and Michael” beating TV powerhouse “Dr. Phil” in the ratings. And he already wants a raise because of it, the insiders add.
“Kelly’s seething,” said a source close to the show. “The way she sees it, it’s basically been her show since Regis left and she was the one who championed Michael for the job!
“Now she’s left wondering what kind of monster she created.”
“Live Kelly and Michael” recently edged out “Dr. Phil” for the first time this season. Some 3.6 million people viewed “Live” during the week of Dec. 16, while 3.5 million watched “Dr. Phil,” which had been No. 1 among talk shows since the season began 13 weeks ago. What’s more, the talk fest also topped “Dr. Phil” in the critical 25- to 54-year-old female demographic, which is especially important to advertisers.
“Michael’s been puffed with pride ever since the good news came out,” said the source. “He’s full of ideas for the show. He even wants to bring his bride-to-be (Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole) onto the program.
“Now the two hosts are headed for a showdown.”

If this is true, he better just sit there, shut up, cohost, and keep his ideas to himself before his contract is not renewed. What a fool!

Well...The show is winning because they have a Superbowl champion on the show. Why can't he have his fiance on the show to guess host. Kelly wanted Mark to be the co-host before producers shot it down!

Michael needs to stay cool. this show is for white people and will always be about white folks. the majority of the viewing audience is old rich white women. they can make or brake him. real talk.

I don't believe this FOR A MINUTE!! Mike seems too humble for this drama and I believe he's too smart and savvy to be tooting his own horn this early.

To GOD be the glory for his and Kelly's success whatever the truth is.

I mean, I watched just to see him, Def didn't watch for her or Regis ever....She is not funny and dorky. He may be on to something here, and her white privilege won't allow her to see the truth.

If the bump in ratings happened AFTER he joined the show then why not take credit for it? Clearly you weren't bumping Dr.Phil on your own..with your dry non funny ass.

Really? It's from the National Enquirer.

But even IF it's true that ratings jumped after gappy joined the show why not brag about it?

In sports, the players get obvious credit for what they do. Michael is in the real world now, where no matter who is making something work, all the credit goes to the so-called #1 person (Kelly). Sure, she brought him on the show to boost ratings, but dare he speak that or take credit for it. Of course not. Michael, you are Black. This is the real world. Keep your mouth shut and give her all the credit. Besides, she schizophrenic, which means that she personally believes that the ENTIRE world does revolve around her and she does not have the ability to share anything. It's part of her illness.
