Kelly Ripa Reveals Her New Co-Host! And The Lucky Star Is…

| Filed under: TV NewsKelly Ripa

Hold on! Now hold on just one second!

You think after nearly a YEAR of speculation and rotating guest hosts that ABC would just flippantly announce Kelly Ripa's new partner in crime via a press release?! Where's the fun in that?! Where's the drama and the spectacle?! Come, come now, folks. We thought you understood by now…

This thing is going to be DRAWN OUT!

We can tell you this — the alphabet network has decided on a star to fill Regis Philbin's vacant seat PERMANENTLY, and they will be making their debut on September 4th. Now, you're asking yourself, "Self! LIVE! With Kelly returns on September 3rd!"

Astute observation! Kelly will be having one more jaunt on the show solo that day before she announces to the world the following morning who her co-host will be. Fans will watch with breathless anticipation has Kelly takes the iconic walk out into the studio with her new cohort in arm.

Whoever will it be? Anderson Cooper? Her hubby?! WILL REGIS COME BACK?! Or maybe it'll be another lady! Give Hoda and Kathie Lee a run for their money.

Time will tell all, and with such little time left, we have a feeling the rumors will hit the ground running in 3…2…1…

    I think the only really important thing is that her new co-star is NOT YOU. I keep wondering why, if you're such a big-shot, no one has asked you to be a judge on American Idol? If you're the big-deal gay/cultural icon you insist that you are, how come you're getting shitty little off-broadway gigs that are a mere four weeks long? Why are you always in stuff that airs on obscure networks? How come nobody's buying your crappy gay-club dance CD?

    How could it be Anderson? He has his own show….

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – To second "Nic", why are you even here and wasting your time commenting on someone/something that bores you? Perhaps YOU are the boring one… And before you belittle Perez's accomplishments, think about this: Have you ever created your own website that has garnered millions of hit per day? Have you ever been on/off/even close to performing on Broadway? Have you ever been on tv??? Lose the negativity, get a life, and stop trashing others. Thanks, and have a nice day! :-)

    I just logged in to say this site sucks now and I'm officially done. These fake-out headlines that lure you in to click to find the answer and not only don't provide one but reveal that there is in fact no story are just bottom-of-the-barrel, and also underscore what complete waste of time this site is. See ya!

    Re: M – The show is owned by ABC. It is syndicated, so it airs on many different local channels. Apparently your local CBS affiliate carries it.

    I just hope Michael Strahan doesn't become Ripa's new co-host. He brings nothing to that show…………………..Now, Seth Meyers is another question. He's perfect for that role. You need a comedian or comedienne in that job to offset Kelly. Please no Strahan or Gumbel.

    I know one thing for sure. If it's Michael Strahan as they are predicting, it will be my last time to watch this show. There are so many talented people IN show business, that would be better than him anyday. Martin Short, for instance. The writer from Saturday Night LIve, whose name escapes me right now. NOT Michael Strahan.

    i hope that it is going to be Michael Strahan because he seems like cool person on the show
