You knew Andy Cohen wouldn’t be silent for long on this debacle and of course, here he is, coming for Michael Strahan.
The man that brings us the glorious hours from the Real Housewives of *insert city here* is clearly Team Kelly Ripa in this entire matter and now his lips are flapping on how it should have been and what happens next. He opines…
“The two of them, Kelly and Michael, had such great chemistry. It just seems like a premature end to a great relationship. So much has been written about this situation and how it’s been handled. I’ve been a TV executive, or a producer, for 25 years. I can’t say this went down in the greatest way. It’s a job you take and you take it for life. She’s been at that job for 15 years … you keep that job. You don’t go anywhere. So I can’t get over that he left ‘Live.’ He was co-hosting ‘Live with Kelly and Michael.’ Your name is in the freaking title!”
– verbal SLAP –
So who does Andy Cohen think should take over for Strahan once he leaves at the end of the summer?
“You know who I think would be great in the job? Is my buddy A.C. Anderson [Cooper]. I just think he would be so good. He would be so good co-hosting that show.”
But of course.
Color us shocked at his answer.
