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:

Find out if he's down for daytime!

Sooooo… is he in or is he out?!

On Thursday, Anderson Cooper sat down with Andy Cohen to chat about daytime TV's current controversy, Michael Strahan up and leaving LIVE! With Kelly And Michael.

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:

Yolanda Hadid Finally Chooses Between Lisa Rinna & Lisa Vanderpump On The RHOBH Reunion… Sort Of…

It's the end of an error…

The best way to describe watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season would be to call it a chore, but that would imply these women know anything about housework.

Still, we're happy to say that RHOBH finally put itself out of its misery on Tuesday night with part two of the Season Six reunion!

Video: Yolanda Was Blindsided By Divorce… Despite Filing The Papers Herself

Not too much happened that we hadn't already seen in previews, but Yolanda Hadid did wrap up her Lyme disease storyline by (kind of) picking a side between the Lisas once-and-for-all!

Once Lymearita returned from walking off the set for no reason, Andy Cohen flat out asked if she believed Lisa Vanderpump or Lisa Rinna was the real manipulator… and it seemed as though she's mostly leaning towards LVP.

But that doesn't mean she was gonna pass up the opportunity to trash her former friend!

Good thing YoYo already has that divorce plot to keep her interesting next year…

Ch-ch-check out the highlight of part two of the RHOBH reunion (below)!!!

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

We didn't think we could get surprised again after Michael Strahan shocked us with the announcement he was leaving Live! With Kelly & Michael in September.

But right after Kelly Ripa returned to the show, we heard her cohost was instead going to leave in just over two weeks!

Well, it's all true. And ABC has reasoning that does NOT include trying to avoid the awkwardness between its stars.

A show spokesperson confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly, saying:
