Kelly Ripa Calls Disney Out For Their Poor Workplace Policies In Her Live! With Kelly & Michael Return! Watch!

| Filed under: TV NewsDisneyKelly Ripa

Don't call it a comeback!

Kelly Ripa has been at the center of one of television's most random scandals recently, but she finally made her way back to Live! with Kelly and Michael on Tuesday.

As you've surely heard by now, Michael Strahan blindsided Kelly last week with the news he would be leaving Live! for Good Morning America this September, and his cohost promptly stopped showing up to work!

Well, now that Kelly has had the weekend to cool off she's explaining her side of the story, and she's clearly still upset with Disney that after 26 years, they'd treat her with so much disrespect.

However, she did make sure to say she's happy that a bigger conversation on workplace policies has been opened… but we're sure she's mostly just pleased that ABC has guaranteed her that Live! is once again a priority for the parent company.

She does seem genuinely supportive of Michael's move, though!

kelly ripa disney apology

Is it a little too late?

On Monday, it was reported that Kelly Ripa was issued a formal apology from Disney and ABC executives for "blindsiding" her with Michael Strahan's announcement that he's leaving Live! With Kelly & Michael for Good Morning America. Well good!

As you may know, the blonde beauty was PISSED when the network's head honchos revealed that the former NFL star would be leaving his co-hosting duties with Miz Ripa for a prime spot on GMA. Not to mention, rumors also began circulating that Live! may be cancelled in order to extend the other morning show by an hour — which resulted in the former soap opera star leaving her show for some vacation time a day early.

Everything at Live With Kelly and Michael is going GREAT, you guys!

Kelly Ripa has been missing from the morning program ever since she was blindsided by Michael Strahan's announcement that he was leaving the show for Good Morning America last week.

Though the 45-year-old was giving her bosses at ABC and her cohost the silent treatment about when she would be back, Ripa announced over the weekend that she would return to the show on Tuesday.

And despite it probably being super awkward for the hosts to be in the same room together — let alone pretend to get along on live TV — Strahan could NOT be more excited for Ripa's return!

The former NFL pro hosted alongside Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell on Monday's Live, where he told the audience how stoked he was for Kelly's return:

What a dramatic week it's been!

ICYMI: Kelly Ripa was blindsided after it was revealed that her co-host Michael Strahan was jumping ship to join Good Morning America. Not to mention, the blonde beauty decided to bail on the show as rumors started circulating about her anger towards the former NFL star and how Disney handled the matter too.

Yikes!

While Michael's since issued a statement on his departure from Live!, Kelly's remained relatively tight lipped. Smart move, girl.
