The whole drama surrounding Live with Kelly and Michael has almost been out of control ever since Michael Strahan announced he would be leaving!

Of course we know by now that Kelly Ripa was blindsided by the news and the blonde beauty decided to leave for vacation as a way of dealing with her frustration and stress.

Well Kelly did receive an apology from Disney and ABC for not letting her know about Strahan's exit first, but she was OBVIOUSLY still pretty pissed about the whole thing at her first show back yesterday.

One of the biggest surprises from the former soap opera star's return though was that the show announced Michael would no longer be leaving in September, but rather his last Live show would be May 13 — four months early!

While this sounds like the network trying to make up for their mistakes, an insider revealed to Us Weekly that Kelly is still "talking about leaving."

The insider went on to reveal that even though Jerry O'Connell is being considered, Ripa

Michael Strahan shocked America on Tuesday by announcing he would be leaving Live With Kelly and Michael for a full-time position on Good Morning America!

And apparently, Kelly Ripa was just as surprised — because her costar of four years dropped the bomb on her right after Tuesday's show!

Production sources told TMZ that the former NFL star sat down with Ripa and exec producer Michael Gelman at 10:30 a.m. EST to let them know he was parting ways with them for another morning talk show!

According to the source, Kelly and Gelman were "stunned and upset" by the news — because no one on the show had ANY clue Strahan was about to switch teams!

RANK: Who Should Replace Michael On Live?!

Though it doesn't sound like the secrecy is the former New York Giants player's fault, as the stealthy move was orchestrated by Disney CEO Bob Iger — who reportedly already has a replacement plan to fill the seat next to Kelly.

One source told ET that the perky blonde's close friend Anderson Cooper is a frontrunner to fill in — though the silver fox might need CNN's permission to do the show.

Another strongly rumored candidate is award-winning host

| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpAnderson CooperStephen ColbertHIGHlariousFunnyLate Night TV

This is the perfect video to start your day!

At this point, we're so sick and tired of Donald Trump and his racist, misogynistic, and all-around disgusting statements, we just wish the 69-year-old would go away already!

Well, it seems like Stephen Colbert doesn't want to deal with the REAL Trump either, which is why he interviewed a cartoon version of the GOP candidate Wednesday night.

Of course, Colbert made sure to ask Donald about Anderson Cooper comparing him to a five-year-old and his juvenile behavior as well as that whole assault case with the businessman's campaign manager — and his responses are downright HIGHlarious!

Plus, that's some really good animation for just a gag.

Ch-ch-check out the only enjoyable Trump interview on record (above)!!!

Just because Anderson Cooper and his mother Gloria Vanderbilt are close and wrote a book together and are filming a documentary doesn't mean they know EVERYTHING about each other.

The mother and son recently sat down for an interview with People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle and Cooper learned that his mother once had a same-sex relationship.

Thankfully the moment was ON CAMERA! Gloria revealed:

"I, myself, when I went to [Miss Porter's School in] Farmington, [Connecticut] I went through a brief so-called lesbian relationship with a girl in school."

While the reveal is great, it's really Anderson's reaction that makes this moment precious as he says:
