Drama Brews! Apparently Michael Strahan's Special 'Treatment' On GMA Is Pissing Off His Cohosts!

Filed under: TV NewsKelly RipaNFLShadeDaytime TV

no title

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:

Scarlett Johansson Defends Herself Against Whitewashing Claims: 'I Would Never Attempt To Play A Person Of A Different Race, Obviously'

no title

Scarlett Johansson and the makers of Ghost In The Shell have faced a lot of criticism for being another example of Hollywood whitewashing.

In the film, ScarJo plays a cyborg called The Major (a character whose name in the original manga was Motoko Kusanagi), a role many have argued should have gone to a Japanese actress.

Now the Avenger is finally responding to the criticism by pointing out she's definitely not trying to play an Asian character.

In an interview with GMA's Michael Strahan, ScarJo explained:

Live With Drama! Regis Philbin Says Kelly Ripa Was 'Offended' When He Left & Hasn't Spoken To Him Since!

Filed under: TV NewsKelly RipaLarry KingDaytime TV

no title

After Michael Strahan blindsided Kelly Ripa last year for a new job on Good Morning America, we weren't surprised that the former cohosts didn't keep in touch.

But it looks like Kelly even ices her cohosts who leave on more amicable terms, because she apparently hasn't spoken to the Regis Philbin since he left six years ago!

On Tuesday, the veteran TV personality spoke on his strained relationship with his former Live costar of ten years during an interview on Larry King Now.

When King asked whether the 85-year-old still kept in touch with Ripa after leaving the daytime show, Regis admitted:

"Not really, no."

Aside from not ever hearing from Kelly, Reeg admitted that "never once" has he been invited back on the show, even though he hosted the program for 28 years.

And that might very well have to do with Kelly, who, according to Regis, "thought I was leaving because of her." We guess daytime history repeats itself…

Ch-ch-check out a clip of the interview (below) to see a sad Regis talk about his former cohost!

Michael Strahan Has No Regrets About The Way He Exited Live!… But Is He Still Friends With Kelly Ripa?!

Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsKelly RipaNFLDaytime TV

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:

"The most disappointing thing to me was that I was painted as the bad guy, because I value the way I carry myself. I don't want people to see me as 'Oh, he just ran out, just left them there.' That's just not true."

That definitely seemed like the case in April, when Strahan suddenly announced he would be leaving Live! for a full time gig over at GMA — a move that Ripa only learned about at the very last minute, causing the long-time host to take some time off.

Luckily, Michael insists he has "no regrets" about how his sudden departure, explaining that they all work for the ABC "team," and his football mentality is to play

no title

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.

While the announcement did in fact have to do with who would be sitting in Strahan's empty seat, it still wasn't exactly the news we were anticipating.

On Wednesday's show, the 45-year-old revealed that FANS would have a chance to be her cohost for the day through the new contest Live With Kelly & You! Oh…

What an opportunity! For all those who think Ripa's job is easy, now you finally have a chance to prove it!

Fans have until September 20 to submit on the Live website — will YOU try your luck at being the next Live cohost?
