They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!
We knew there was trouble when ABC announced the former NFL pro would be leaving the morning program four months earlier than originally planned — and in the wake of all the daytime drama, Kelly clearly has NO F*CKS left to give!
On Thursday’s episode, the 45-year-old made an awkward joke about contract negotiations — right in front of Strahan — during a segment involving cute animals.
Then on Friday, Kelly gave another thinly-veiled jab at her cohost of four years by bringing up his divorce!
When introducing an article highlighting children of divorce who live in one house while their separated parents move in and out for visits, Ripa said to Strahan:
“I want to get your take on it because I don’t have a take on it. But I want yours. So you’ve gotten divorced├óΓé¼┬ª”
Strahan looked stunned and visibly annoyed before answering that he didn’t think it was a good idea.
The former athlete divorced his first wife Wanda Hutchins in 1996, and his second wife Jean Muggli in 2006 — and shares two kids with each of his ex-wives.
Was Kelly’s shade justified? Watch the jab (below) to see Strahan’s baffled reaction!
