That. Just. Happened!
Next, Yoncé backed up for an intense
We're not used to seeing Andy Cohen this early in the morning, but somehow it just feels right!
That's probably because the Watch What Happens Live host had the perfect chemistry with BBF Kelly Ripa when he cohosted Thursday's LIVE with Kelly!
Though the Bravo personality already confirmed he would not be joining the morning talk show full time to replace Michael Strahan, it's clear that the audience was still rooting for him to get the gig!
After the pair was greeted with an eruption of applause, Kelly and Andy admitted to both being a little hung over and discussed their fashion faux pas of the week.
Their natural banter continued throughout the episode, as Andy blurted out gems like:
This would LITERALLY be the most amazing thing to ever happen to daytime television!
According to an ET source, the network has been talking to the Parks and Recreation alum's reps in hopes of filling Michael Strahan's empty seat on the morning program.
The 52-year-old was in talks for the same gig back in 2012 when ABC was searching for Regis Philbin's replacement, after the charismatic actor impressed audiences over his two-day stint as guest host.
While Lowe didn't get the job four years ago, the timing is looking a lot better this time around! Not only did his Fox show The Grinder get cancelled earlier this month, but he admitted to needing a distraction due to empty nest syndrome.
Speaking to ET earlier this week, Lowe didn't turn down the possibility of joining LIVE, explaining:
Monday morning, we got a treat as Fred Savage returned to LIVE! with Kelly — and this time around he made things a bit dirty as he cracked Kelly up with his ridiculously funny sex stories!
Not only did the Grinder star dish about the time he and his wife conceived his son with overly bloated stomachs, but he also talked about how he almost watched LIVE! while he had sex with his wife!
Ch-ch-check out Fred tell the ridiculously HIGHlarious sex story, starting around the 5:55 mark (below)!
It's a love affair! At least, temporarily, anyway!
Michael Strahan's time on Live! is officially over, which means Kelly Ripa is in need of a new cohost. In the meantime, the blonde beauty has plenty of famous friends filling in temporarily while ABC locks down a more permanent selection.
And now you can add Mark Consuelos to that list!
Earlier this week, Miz Ripa's husband revealed that he would take a seat next to his wife on the popular morning broadcast, simply saying to E! News:
"I think a couple times."
Awww! Supporting his lady love off AND onscreen?! That just makes our hearts melt!
And as much as we would love to see Kelly and Mark hosting together all the time as a kickass couple, it doesn't seem like the Pitch star will be filling Michael's empty chair forever.
The gorgeous guy also didn't say much on the sensitive subject, but he did dish about his new show, saying:
Instead of walking on eggshells, Jimmy steered straight into the storm and asked Kelly all the awkward questions about Michael and even questioned if the soap opera star has even done the show without panties. LOLz what?!
Ch-ch-check out Ripa's first show without Strahan as Kimmel makes things a bit awkward with his HIGHlarious questions!
It's finally over!
After Michael Strahan blindsided Kelly Ripa with his Good Morning America announcement, the drama seemed never ending as the former soap opera star left on vacation early, and was reportedly pretty upset.
Just because the former NFLer is gone though, doesn't mean the blonde beauty wants any reminders of him around as the show has debuted a BRAND NEW TITLE, as well as new images to help rebrand themselves!
On Sunday, the hit talk show took to Facebook to share their new title and logo:
Well that was super anticlimactic…
But luckily for us, that's exactly what happened when he blindsided Kel with the news that he'd be transferring over to GMA this September!
Friday morning marked the former football player's final episode on the ABC talk show, but you wouldn't be able to tell just by watching the hour…
That's because Michael's "send off" was basically just a regular episode that featured a few Flashback Friday moments sprinkled throughout the show. (Though he did make an awkward joke about guest hosting…)
We think it's safe to say Kelly clearly got exactly what she wanted out of all this! So why is she dressed like she's at a funeral? LOLz!
