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:

The drama is REAL!

Kelly Ripa is letting ABC know exactly how she's feeling!

On Thursday's episode of Live with Kelly & Michael, the blonde beauty made it clear that she's still pretty hurt after being blindsided by the news that Michael Strahan is quitting the show.

Michael Strahan's abrupt exit from Live With Kelly and Michael is causing quite the media frenzy.

So we're not surprised the producers of the morning program are considering sending the former NFL pro off with less of a bang and more of a whisper!

After Kelly Ripa returned to Live on Tuesday, the network confirmed that Strahan would be departing the show on May 13 instead of September — which was initially announced as the month he would begin working full time on Good Morning America.

But after the sneaky shake up caused a bit of turbulence between Kelly and the producers, the show probably won't be making that big of a deal when Strahan ends his four year stint as co-host.

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!

Michael Strahan Is Leaving Live! With Kelly Ripa FOUR MONTHS Earlier Than He Originally Planned!

This cannot be a coincidence…

Kelly Ripa made her dramatic return to Live! with Kelly and Michael early Tuesday morning, and while things seemed relatively cordial between her and Michael Strahan, we don't think that's actually the case.

That's because just four hours after the episode aired, it was reported that Michael is actually leaving for Good Morning America much sooner than he originally planned!

As in, he'll now be leaving on May 13… FOUR MONTHS earlier than his previously scheduled September end date!
