Kelly Ripa Returns To ‘Live’ And Gives Heartfelt Speech

So many things have been said in the news over the past few days about Kelly Ripa and truly it isn’t fair. Kelly Ripa stood up for what she believed was right, she was blindsided and obviously upset. Most people don’t realize that she has worked with ABC for over 20 years and she had a feeling that they were trying to push her out, so she pushed back. God forbid a woman stands up for what she believes is right and pushes back for once. This doesn’t make her a “bitch” or a “diva” it makes her human. It also makes her smart, she refused to come back until ABC promised that ‘Live’ was still important to the network.

People can say whatever but she handled this well. She had an already planned vacation for her family and instead of making any jabs, she laid it all out on the table during her little speech.

I have been watching Kelly on ‘Live’ since I was 9 years old, I also have the television taste of a 60 year old retired woman, but that’s not the point. Kelly Ripa has always been on point, she is funny, and she does her job well. Remember how she handled the Clay Aiken mess? She came out on top on that one.

So to sit behind a screen and call this hard working woman a bitch, or telling her to put on her big girl pants, you sit down. She worked hard to be where she is at and she has worked hard to keep ‘Live’ one of the best rated morning shows.

Shame on all of you. Yes, she gets paid to talk on television but she is human. She is also business savvy and wasn’t about to be bumped from the 9 am spot that she has worked to keep after Regis left.

I applaud Kelly Ripa at not making this messy, at taking a few days off to collect her thoughts, then coming back and openly congratulating Michael on air.

Kelly Ripa M.I.A After Michael Strahan Announcement

No show: Kelly Ripa (above on April 4)did not appear on Live With Kelly and Michael Wednesday morning, the day after it was announced Michael Strahan was leaving

So there are a lot of reports going around right now about Michael Strahan leaving Live With Kelly and Michael. As most people know by now he is heading over to GMA where he can do more interviews and just be the likable guy that we all know.

There have been reports that the money that Michael will be making will change his life and that one of the Disney executives put together this deal without talking to Kelly, Gellman, and the rest of the staff about him leaving.

Now everyone is saying that no one except old women care. I care! I love Kelly Ripa and I love morning shows, how else do you spend you sick days? I spend them laughing at the banter between Michael and Kelly, and I used to spend them laughing at the banter between Kelly and Regis. That’s just how it works. Money talks though, obviously Michael couldn’t say no to the money that he was being offered. I just think it’s all shady.

I am going to say this, are you ready? I think that ABC is trying to get Kelly Ripa out, much like the Today show did with Ann Curry. They will probably try and extend GMA into a third hour which means bye bye to Live, even though Live has better ratings.

So much drama! My lord you would think that it would Laguna Beach all over again!

Today though, SNL alum Ana Gasteyer filled in for Kelly. Michael had this to say.

Out: Kelly Ripa did not appear on Live With Kelly and Michael Wednesday morning, the day after it was announced Michael Strahan was leaving (Strahan above with guest cohost Ana Gasteyer)

He explained that he will be making the move in September, and that he really isn’t going anywhere.

‘It is the same channel. I am not going anywhere, I was reading some stuff and it was like I had died. It’s not a eulogy people.’

Michael did mention Kelly at the end of the program though saying ‘I really wan to thank, of course, Kelly Ripa, Kelly welcomed me here and I’ve learned so much from her and she’s just been an amazing influence on me and this has truly changed my life to be here with her. And I know that the show will continue to be strong and great because of Kelly and Michael Gellman and the staff here because everybody here is so talented. This show has not been around for over 30 years by mistake.Kelly, I thank you. I love you … and I’m not going to cry on TV mama, I promise you.

I would be afraid of an angry Kelly Ripa too, she is little but I am sure she throw one hhell of a bitch fit.

Michael Strahan Is Leaving LIVE! With Kelly & Michael

Apparently Michael Strahan is leaving LIVE, there has been no official date or anything like that but he is going to be on ‘Good Morning America’ full time instead of splitting his time between the two programs.

I can’t even lie this makes me sad because Michael and Kelly are absolutely hilarious together. Their chemistry is great but hey, as long as Kelly Ripa is still on it then the show has a shot to stay high in the rating.

So let’s think who should take Michael’s place? I am going to say Anderson Cooper should since he is best friends with Kelly, but he is a bit too serious, in my humble opinion. I am going to go with Nick Lachey as my final vote.

Okay, so when Nick Lachey gets the hosting gig, you heard it from me first!

Michael Strahan Rocks Blue On The 2016 Oscars Red Carpet!

I have such a crush on Michael Strahan, I don’t even care if that is weird at all. I love his style on the red carpet, that is a fact. I genuinely think that he always looks so clean and handsome. The suit fits him very nicely and I like that he went with the three piece suit. The blue looks great too!

Best looking host on the carpet, I said it! Eat your heart out Seacrest!

Top Ten Best Dressed Men Of The 2015 Oscars!

There are no guest bloggers for this post, just my own opinions! I think that I can tell if a man looks good in a suit, so I didn’t need any help with this! Now last night most men showed up wearing a black and white tux of some type. I did notice more bow-ties than usual, and I can’t stand bow-ties. Some people could pull them off while others fell short.

Let’s see who made us swoon the most this year!

10. JK Simmons

This is probably a weird pick but I think that JK was killing it on the red carpet last night! Look at his swagger! He has a chain, a hat, his pocket square matches his wife’s dress. I love it, everything about it.

9. John Stamos

Have mercy! Am I right? I mean what in the world is John Stamos doing at the Oscars, that is something I don’t know. I do know that he showed up looking as handsome as ever! I love the red pocket square to give the suit a bit of color as well. I have some to the conclusion that John Stamos will forever be attractive, this is just another photo of him on a red carpet to prove my case.

8. Ansel Elgort

Last night Ansel Elgort was a presenter but to be honest, I think that one day he could be nominated. I believe that he is right up there when it comes to actors of the future. I like that he went with dark blue, he is young, so he should have a little bit of fun with his outfit. The bow-tie is a little off, but hey, we can straighten that right up!

7. John Legend

Let’s be honest, does John Legend ever look bad? I mean the suit fits him perfect, his hair is cut perfect, his face is perfect. John always looks incredible, the Oscars wasn’t any different.

6. Miles Teller

Miles Teller is just so handsome, am I right? He reminds me of a young Vince Vaughn, everything about him does actually. Although this picture doesn’t do it justice the suit was actually a very dark navy blue which looked great on him! I don’t love how the sleeves are cuffed or how tight the pants are. I will say that some how he pulls this off though. As I said about Ansel, I do believe that we will be seeing a lot more of Miles in the future.

5. David Oyelowo

To be totally honest even though they said David’s last name a million times, I can still not sure how to say it. I love the cranberry suit though, I love it a lot actually. I like when people take a chance on a different color, I think that it shows a lot of courage considering most people want the Oscars to be simply black and white attire, very proper. Looking good David!

4. Chris Evans

Let’s be real who doesn’t love seeing Chris Evans in a perfectly tailored suit, am I right? This is perfectly fit to his body, he looks incredible. I love the scruff and his blue eyes. There’s not much else to say!

3. Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne, 2015 Academy Awards

Eddie killed it the entire awards season! He won award after award, and he always looked good on the red carpet! Last night was no different! I must say, I wasn’t aware that his legs were so long, is that an odd thing to notice? This picture doesn’t show it but he also had a nice accent piece in a watch. Congrats on your big win Eddie and congrats on looking so good!

2. Neil Patrick Harris

The man of the hour gets the number two stop! I must say, I don’t love David’s suit, he kind of looks like a waiter, but Neil looks great! I love the charcoal suits, I always have and I always will! He also did an incredible job hosting the show, so bravo to him!

1. Michael Strahan

I love everything about Michael’s look, I genuinely think that he looks incredible. The black accents on the suit, the dark gray color of the suit. He is just killing it. Honestly, who would have thought that a former NFL player would win the red carpet for the Oscars? Not me, but I am glad he did!
