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.

On Tuesday, when Michael Strahan announced that he would be leaving Live with Kelly and Michael to take a job at Good Morning America, there were certainly quite a few feelings!

Kelly Ripa was obviously pretty upset about the former NFL player's exit seeing as how she had NO idea it was happening, but thankfully she has quite a few celebs who have her back like Oprah Winfrey and even most recently Regis Philbin!

Despite the former soap opera star's famous friends backing her, the talk show host is apparently so distraught by ABC and Disney going over her head and not notifying her of the change, that she canceled her and Mark Consuelos' 20th Anniversary vacation to Turks and Caicos this weekend!

Seeing how Ripa is obviously quite angry and disturbed by the events, you would think that Strahan might have tried to reach out to her by now to patch things up — but apparently that's not the case!

A source close to E! News revealed that the cohosts have NOT spoken since the ABC executive meeting on Tuesday when the blonde beauty learned of Strahan's exit! The insider went on to dish that Michael:

She must really be going through it.

Kelly Ripa is currently at the center of TV's biggest scandal after Michael Strahan decided to leave Live with Kelly and Michael without even telling her.

Kelly Ripa is taking some time off from Live With Kelly and Michael after getting blindsided by Michael Strahan's sudden departure for a full time position at Good Morning America.

And though the longtime host is understandably livid over the secret shake up — so much that she has reportedly threatened to boycott the morning program until Strahan leaves — executives at ABC are confident the perky blonde isn't going anywhere!

According to production sources, it is highly unlikely that Ripa would leave the show out of anger, because she reportedly gets a pretty hefty salary — and has pretty expensive taste!

Drama, drama, dramaaa!

As you may know, Kelly Ripa didn't show up to work on Live With Kelly & Michael amid the news that her co-host Michael Strahan was jumping ship to join Good Morning America. Oh snap!

While it's been rumored that the blonde beauty isn't planning on returning to the morning program until the former NFL star has fully transitioned to GMA, the reality is that Miz Ripa decided to leave for her ALREADY PLANNED vacation a day early with her husband Mark Consuelos to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Way to take lemons and turn them into lemonade, girl!
