Michael Strahan Tells Chelsea He ‘Needed A Break’ From Working With Kelly Ripa!

At least they’re not hiding it anymore!

Michael Strahan‘s exit from Live! with Kelly and Michael was anything but cordial, but now that he’s been apart from Kelly Ripa for well over a month, the pair must be back on good terms… right??

In fact, that couldn’t be further from the case — Michael stopped by Wednesday’s taping of Chelsea Handler‘s Netflix talk show to promote his new game show The $100,000 Pyramid, but ended up dishing a bunch about his relationship with his old coworker.

But not only are he and Kelly not involved in each other’s lives… the former football player said he didn’t miss the show and admitted he actually “needed a break”, saying:

“I really haven’t had a chance to watch it. But I think I’ve been working so hard for the last seven or eight years since I retired from football, that it’s been a relief. I really haven’t missed it… But I loved it. Don’t get me wrong! I loved it. When you get a break, sometimes you kind of go, ‘Wow, I kind of needed it.’ I needed a break.”

He hasn’t even seen the revamped set yet?!

We understand needing to take some personal time after such an intense workload… but saying so out loud probably won’t sit well with Kelly.
