Michael Strahan on Kelly Ripa, 'Live' behind-the-scenes drama



Michael Strahan is opening up about his strained relationship with Kelly Ripa.

In an interview with The New York Times, the former “Live! with Kelly and Michael” co-host didn’t deny that there was tension between him and Ripa about his departure from the show.

“When it was time to go, it was time to go. Certain things that were going on behind the scenes just caught up,” he said, later clarifying that there is no hate from his side.

“If people think, ‘Oh, he hates her’ – I don’t hate her. I do respect her for what she can do at her job. I cannot say enough about how good she is at her job,” he said.

Strahan said he tried to address the issues between them.

“One thing I tried to do is have a meeting every few weeks with her. We met a few times, and that was fine. But then eventually she said she didn’t need to meet,” he said. “Can’t force somebody to do something they don’t want to do.”
