Michael Strahan can't seem to escape that daytime drama!
The former athlete notoriously blindsided Kelly Ripa last year by quitting Live! for a full time job on Good Morning America — and it looks like tensions may have followed him to his new time slot.
Sources are claiming that Strahan has been getting special treatment since joining the ABC morning show, and his fellow GMA anchors are sick of it!
According to Page Six, producers have been giving the affable anchor extra opportunities, while the veteran cohosts are left in the dust. An insider said:
"They roll out the carpet for [Strahan] while seasoned talent is treated like dirt. He's been given a lot of opportunity, flexibility, when the others who have been working there longer don't get that kind of treatment."
Some of this treatment could be Strahan signing a special deal that allows him to continue analyzing football at Fox NFL Sunday and to host ABC's $100,000 Pyramid.
But Strahan's additional GMA assignments are leaning on other anchors' territories — namely pop anchor Lara Spencer, who "feels like her role has been minimized with Strahan." The source added:
