Live! with Kelly and… nope, just Kelly.

It's been a few months since Michael Strahan blew up daytime television by blindsiding Kelly Ripa when he abruptly left Live! after four years on the show.

However, now that he's had some time to reflect on what went down… the Good Morning America newcomer says he actually doesn't feel bad with the way he handled his daytime transition.

Speaking to PEOPLE on Wednesday, the ex-NFL star said:

Months after Michael Strahan very publicly (and dramatically) departed Live, Kelly Ripa teased her fans by saying a "big announcement" was coming — which we took to mean she would finally be revealing her new co-host.
