Kelly Ripa's New Co-Host Revealed? Sources Supposedly LEAK The Big Announcement EARLY!

| Filed under: TV NewsKelly Ripa


Is the wait FINALLY over?

After all the guessing, rumors, innuendo, and speculation than we can fit into a 50 gallon trash bag, it looks like we might finally know who will take Regis Philbin's place next to the beautifully sassy Kelly Ripa!

Drumroll please….

Ex-NFLer Michael Strahan, the former defensive end of the New York Giants!

Now, we knew he was impressive when he "auditioned" on Live with Kelly in June, but we never guessed he'd be a permanent fixture! In fact … we're going to remain skeptical for just a little bit longer. Why? Well, there is a flag down on the play! (Sports talk! Who knew!)

Michael is already employed!! He's an invaluable anchor on Fox NFL Sunday, a live sports show broadcast from El Lay!?

Would he really quit his job this close to football season?

Otherwise, NYC to El Lay is an awfully long commute! We can see soon enough!

    I've liked him every time he's co-hosted - should be a good duo. Congrats Michael!

    Re: ParisIsBurning – So anonymous so brave. Can't wait for the expo when all such comments hit the net with all your real personal info. It will happen someday when they get bored hacking celebrity accounts. Your friends and family will be so proud!

    Its just the network, and the show trying to stay relevant and current with today. Thats why Regis was forced into retirement when he has stated he wasnt ready. Sadly I dont think hiring an NFL star with no TV experience except a few appearances on Kelly's show makes him a tv personality. Anderson Cooper should of gotten the job, her husband, or countless others that would of been perfect for the show

    STRAHAN is wrong for this job. If he gets it, I guarantee you, he won't last, especially as long as Regis. As a temporary co-host, he's fine, but not permanently.

    I'm glad that I stopped watching this show when Regis left. She is such a bimbo and these two just don't look like they would "click". Actually, I don't know how anyone could work with her. She's an itch with a capital B.

    If the "leak" came from someone at ABC as it has been reported on AOL, then I'd take it with a huge grain of salt. After all, they are the same brain trust that identified the Aurora theater shooter as a member of the Tea Party, thus leaving a perfectly innocent individual who just happened to have the same name as it (the shooter; as far as I'm concerned, that asshole lost all right to be called a man when it killed and injured all those people) vulnerable to threats and harassing phone calls.

    At any rate, don't trust the leaks.

    Just a ploy to get black viewers. They know the ship is sinking fast. Can you say SOS?

    My wife and I watch your show and have noticed since Regis retired the show is loosing its connection with Regis's fan demographic. The dynamics of Kelly and Regis is hard to match and at this point I am sure your goal is to keep watchers you had. Think about it Regis connected with the retired crowd that is older and has the time to watch the show on a regular basis.Kelly is awsome at connecting with the young to middle age demographic. Put those together and it covers the whole age spectrum. Hard to beat. What I suggest is bringing on aging guest hosts that will keep the intrest of the fans that loved Regis and his cohorts from his era. Bringing in a younyer than 65 year old host I feel will doom the show eventually. I like Kelly and don't like to see her struggle. P.S. I design and develop new products and am always transitioning successful products to the new and better design and have learned that its much more successful to mix the old elements with the new. TV shows are no different. Just saying

    Re: ParisIsBurning
    You have got to be kidding me! Do you hate short and fat people too? Not liking someone on a show because he is black is insane. It is women and men with feelings just like this that put us back 30 years. This country did elect a black man as president if you had not already heard. Please keep your rude, racist opinions to yourself… I know that you were also taught if you don't have anything nice to say…Keep your damn mouth shut. Or maybe it was do not say anything at all… but seriously, from all the non racist white girls out there… Keep your damn mouth shut.

    If this is true I will not be watching anymore.. I have watched this show for at least 20 years. But no more .. Don't like him .A lot of other cohosts were much better…

    I hope this isn't true. He would have been my last choice. Don't the viewers get to weigh in? I see no chemistry between them. Hopefully, her husband Mark and Neil Patrick Harris will fill in a lot.
