Kelly Ripa Spotted Out For The First Time Since Michael Strahan Drama — And She’s Carrying A Very Inneresting Book…

no title

Kelly Ripa is using her vacation time wisely!

The daytime host had quite the turbulent week after her longtime cohost Michael Strahan suddenly announced he would be quitting Live for a full time job on Good Morning America.

Ripa was so “blindsided” by the news, she didn’t even show up for work on Wednesday — and decided to get an early start on her supposed “preplanned vacation” until the daytime drama cools down!

Well, it looks like the 45-year-old is definitely making use of her time off by spending it with her husband… oh, and doing some light revenge plotting reading!

On Thursday, Ripa was all smiles as she was spotted leaving her New York City home with husband Mark Consuelos.

The petite blonde was also carrying a copy of a very telling book — Malcolm Gladwell‘s David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants!

Wow, could that be more on the nose!? Strahan played for the New York Giants for fifteen years — plus, he’s pretty hulking himself.

OR could the “giant” be ABC News head Ben Sherwood, who is said to have orchestrated the entire transition without cluing in Ripa or anyone at Live.

We’re sure Ripa has plenty of meetings scheduled upon her return about replacements and what not, and she’s clearly coming prepared!

Take down those giants, girl!
