After four years of cohosting with Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan will depart from LIVE! With Kelly and Michael on Friday.

But she still felt it was necessary to take a stand for herself after being blindsided by the news of his exit.
Speaking to People, the 45-year-old opened up about the controversial announcement and her reaction to the drama, explaining:
Of course Kelly was initially pretty pissed and even left town for a couple days, before coming back and sharing some SUPER awkward moments with the former NFLer and basically forcing him off the show early.

But when Iron Man couldn't hit the sweet spot, he stepped aside for the formerly (?) feuding hosts.
Worth noting that Michael courteously let Kelly have the first swing — and she was even looking out for him, noticing that he was standing in the path of her backswing!
Whew! Watch the close call that could have ended up in another Civil War (above)!
