Live! with Kelly and… nope, just Kelly.

It's been a few months since Michael Strahan blew up daytime television by blindsiding Kelly Ripa when he abruptly left Live! after four years on the show.

However, now that he's had some time to reflect on what went down… the Good Morning America newcomer says he actually doesn't feel bad with the way he handled his daytime transition.

Speaking to PEOPLE on Wednesday, the ex-NFL star said:

"The most disappointing thing to me was that I was painted as the bad guy, because I value the way I carry myself. I don't want people to see me as 'Oh, he just ran out, just left them there.' That's just not true."

That definitely seemed like the case in April, when Strahan suddenly announced he would be leaving Live! for a full time gig over at GMA — a move that Ripa only learned about at the very last minute, causing the long-time host to take some time off.

Luckily, Michael insists he has "no regrets" about how his sudden departure, explaining that they all work for the ABC "team," and his football mentality is to play

Months after Michael Strahan very publicly (and dramatically) departed Live, Kelly Ripa teased her fans by saying a "big announcement" was coming — which we took to mean she would finally be revealing her new co-host.

While the announcement did in fact have to do with who would be sitting in Strahan's empty seat, it still wasn't exactly the news we were anticipating.

On Wednesday's show, the 45-year-old revealed that FANS would have a chance to be her cohost for the day through the new contest Live With Kelly & You! Oh…

What an opportunity! For all those who think Ripa's job is easy, now you finally have a chance to prove it!

Fans have until September 20 to submit on the Live website — will YOU try your luck at being the next Live cohost?

Mila Kunis is on a total cravings rollercoaster ride with baby #2!

On Wednesday, Mila stopped by Live With Kelly! to talk about Bad Moms and her "different" second pregnancy. The actress dished on everything from her wacky diet to exactly what her two-year-old daughter Wyatt Isabelle knows about the new addition. It's definitely the most candid Kunis has been about her second pregnancy thus far!

While M.K. is clearly THRILLED to be expecting again, the beauty admitted to Kelly Ripa that she's struggling with her new and crazy cravings, an issue that she did NOT have with Wyatt:

"With the first one I didn't have any aversions. I craved sauerkraut. The first half of my pregnancy, I couldn't get enough vinegar. Greek chopped salad: vinegar. The second one, I can't eat meat. It'll look delicious to me, and then I'll take a bite of it, and then I'm like, 'Uh-uh. Can't do it.' This is going to offend a lot of people who are vegetarian: I love steak. I could eat ground beef—like a burger, I can eat—but whole pieces of meat, uh-uh. Uh-uh! It doesn't make any sense. But I can also eat eggs all day long. If someone's like, 'Have an egg for dinner!' I'm like, 'Great.' It's a very strange pregnancy when it comes to, like, food."

"Strange" indeed! We hope husband Ashton Kutcher is whipping up all the eggs in El Lay for Mila!

But wait, that's not the only contrast to baby #1 — apparently

At least they're not hiding it anymore!

Michael Strahan's exit from Live! with Kelly and Michael was anything but cordial, but now that he's been apart from Kelly Ripa for well over a month, the pair must be back on good terms… right??
