What an unlikely but sweet story!
According to TMZ, Lopez floated about
The TV host shared a pic on Instagram showing her hubby Mark Consuelos locked in a happy embrace, and it is the cutest!!!
Ch-ch-check out the fun anniversary snap (below)!!!
Larry Wilmore opened his bit with a FOX News joke. LOVES IT!
It's hard to deliver with all the high expectations at events like this, but Larry did more than his job. And Donald Trump definitely got hit hard with his jokes.
We NEED more Larry in our lives!
Ch-ch-check out his ridic speech and BE SURE to watch all the way through for his controversial ending (above & below)!
They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!
We knew there was trouble when ABC announced the former NFL pro would be leaving the morning program four months earlier than originally planned — and in the wake of all the daytime drama, Kelly clearly has NO F*CKS left to give!
On Thursday's episode, the 45-year-old made an awkward joke about contract negotiations — right in front of Strahan — during a segment involving cute animals.
Then on Friday, Kelly gave another thinly-veiled jab at her cohost of four years by bringing up his divorce!
When introducing an article highlighting children of divorce who live in one house while their separated parents move in and out for visits, Ripa said to Strahan:
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.
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:
The whispers are growing!!
Mario Lopez hung out with Ellen DeGeneres on the comedienne's talk show on Thursday, and didn't exactly stop all the rumors about him possibly replacing Michael Strahan on LIVE! alongside Kelly Ripa during that morning show's dramz!
The former Saved By The Bell stud talked to Ellen about possibly moving to New York to cohost the show (!), as well what it'll take for him to make the decision — family comes first for Mr. Lopez — but he certainly didn't seem like he was shying away from the opportunity!!
Ch-ch-check out his comments, and some bonus cuteness from the photogenic TV host's kids, in the interview clip (below):
Sooooo… is he in or is he out?!
During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked the CNN anchor how he felt about the talk show host bailing on Kelly Ripa, and whether or not he would sit beside his famous friend at the desk.
The journalist gave a pretty politically correct answer, trying not to show his hand, saying:
"Listen I love Kelly, and Kelly is the heart and soul of that show. It's gonna go on and continue to be great and I wish Michael the best in his new endeavor."
But, that wasn't enough for the Bravo exec!
The active member of #TeamKelly asked the TV personality point-blank if he'd take the job, to which the silver fox replied:
Kelly Ripa is letting ABC know exactly how she's feeling!
In fact, the TV personality didn't even hesitate to work a joke about contract negotiations into a segment about cute little animals!
Ouch! We wonder if the network execs knew the 45-year-old would use an adorable armadillo against them!
And this isn't the first time the lovely lady has slammed the show on the air since she came back to the desk! She also called out Disney's workplace policies… on the exact episode where she made her triumphant return!
Watch everyone awkwardly laugh off the Live alum's blatant jab at show producers — and her cohost — in this video (below)!
