It's such a bummer these two can't get along!
The confidante went on to explain:

Of course Kelly was initially pretty pissed and even left town for a couple days, before coming back and sharing some SUPER awkward moments with the former NFLer and basically forcing him off the show early.
Well despite the fact that Strahan's last show is only a couple days away, the on-air hosts are STILL not getting along as a source close to the show's production told TMZ that the former soap opera star is acting out towards Michael!
In the past, Ripa reportedly used to
That Megyn Kelly is one shrewd operator.
First she set up an interview with feuding partner Donald Trump to air during May sweeps.
Then, of all the morning shows to debut a clip, she chose the one currently in the news for its own man/woman feud: Live With Kelly & Michael. Inneresting…
So will Megyn and Drumpf get in another public row? Or settle their beef once and for all?
Ch-ch-check out Megyn's teaser clip of her upcoming convo with the reality TV star/Republican Presidential candidate, as well as her own interview with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan (below)!
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan must have made up behind the scenes. Why else would they trust them with blunt instruments already??
On Thursday morning's LIVE!, the cohosts welcomed Captain America: Civil War star Robert Downey Jr. — and in honor of Cinco de Mayo they let him take a swing at a Captain America piñata!
But when Iron Man couldn't hit the sweet spot, he stepped aside for the formerly (?) feuding hosts.
Worth noting that Michael courteously let Kelly have the first swing — and she was even looking out for him, noticing that he was standing in the path of her backswing!
Whew! Watch the close call that could have ended up in another Civil War (above)!
Seeing as how Strahan's last day is May 13 though, LIVE! is looking to have a few guest cohosts to fill in until they find a more long-term answer to their problem and they've announced who the first guest host will be!
The morning talk show took to Facebook to announce:
As we're sure you know, there's a WHOLE LOT of drama going on at LIVE! with Kelly and Michael ever since Michael Strahan announced he would be moving to Good Morning America.
Since then, there has been all kinds of chaos with Kelly Ripa being a bit pissed off, Strahan being pushed out a bit earlier than expected, and rumors of Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Mario Lopez and EVEN Regis Philbin replacement cohosts.
Well the former NFLer attended the Met Gala on Monday night and talked with Entertainment Tonight about about all the drama and said people have "the wrong impression" about what went down during the meeting where Ripa found out!
The 44-year-old went on to dish on the controversy saying:
The good news is, the awkwardness won't go on too much longer…
So it was probably a good call for ABC to go ahead and replace Michael now rather than all the way in September as initially planned.
But when the cohosts tried to announce Strahan's sendoff show on Friday the 13th, things got a little awkward with the studio audience.
First the boos, then someone yelled, "We still love you, Kelly!" Um, it's Michael that's leaving…
Ch-ch-check out the uncomfortable morning moment (below):
With the former NFLer's departure, rumors have already started flying about who could replace him.
Ch-ch-check out Andy and Anderson try and pawn the job off on one another before finding the ULTIMATE solution (below)!
