We knew it was too good to be true…

One of the best things to come out of this whole Live! with Kelly and Michael drama is that we get to speculate for weeks about who will be taking Michael Strahan's seat next to Kelly Ripa next month!

There have been rumors that Anderson Cooper, Jerry O'Connell, and Mario Lopez are currently the front-runners for the open spot, and now one of their biggest competitors has officially dropped out of the race.

Andy Cohen may be Kelly's best friend — he's already defended her against Disney and ABC, after all — but he's mostly known for being the face of Bravo.

But unfortunately for Real Housewives fans who wanted to see the Watch What Happens Live! host transition from late night to early morning, it doesn't sound like he'll be jumping ship any time soon!

The 47-year-old spoke to UsWeekly at the Below Deck: Mediterranean premiere on Thursday where he denied rumors that he'd be taking over for Michael, saying:

"I've kind of said everything I had to say about it… I have 10 jobs. I have my own late-night talk show that's on every night at 11 o'clock!"

We guess that's fair…

At least this means we'll always have WWHL to look forward to!

Who do U want to see replace Michael when Live!'s new host takes their seat May 13??
