Kelly Ripa just keeps on ripping…Michael Strahan.
Strahan can’t leave Live with Kelly and Michael fast enough as his co-host continues to take awkward and ill-timed jabs during the broadcast.
On Thursday’s show, Ripa used an armadillo to make a quip about using the animal in her future “contract negotiations” with the network. It was no doubt a veiled shot at Strahan’s pending exit and a foreshadowing that Ripa may be asking for more money because of it.
Friday, Ripa kept on ripping – this time about an article she read about “bird nesting,” where divorced couples ‘rotate’ in and out of one home where their kids live.
“I want to get your take on it, because I don’t have a take on it,” Ripa teased to kick things off. “So, you’ve gotten divorced […].”
At this point, Strahan’s faced curled up something serious. There was some nervous laughter in the audience as well, probably from some who realized that Ripa’s comedic gloves were off.
Yes, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos for more than 20 years. Yes, Strahan has been divorced twice.
Oh, the shade.
Strahan handled it like a champ, transitioning into self-deprecating humor and playing it cool.
