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.

Oscar Nominated Restrepo Co-Director Killed In Libya

restrepo co director tim hetherington killed in libya

Such a tragedy!

Less than two months after the Academy Awards ceremony, Oscar nominated Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya while documenting fighting between Gaddafi's forces and rebels.

Along with Tim, Getty photographer Chris Hondros is in "extremely critical condition" following a severe brain injury from a mortar attack. Just awful! We hope he recovers.

Here's what ABC News' James Goldston had to say about Hetherington:

"Tim was one of the bravest photographers and filmmakers I have ever met. During his shooting for the Nightline specials he very seriously broke his leg on a night march out of a very isolated forward operating base that was under attack. He had the strength and character to walk for four hours through the night on his shattered ankle without complaint and under fire, enabling that whole team to reach safety."

Such a brave, fearless man whose work has impacted many, many lives. He will be missed.

Our thoughts go out to Tim's family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.
