"I’ve been having a lot of fun on that show over the last four years and I'm very thankful to her because I've learned so much from her and [executive producer] Michael Gelman." But a source told ET that there's definite tension between Strahan and Ripa, and that Ripa has threatened to not return to the show until Strahan leaves in September.
However, the scandal could have been defused if ABC had just told his “Live” co-host, Kelly Ripa, about the shake-up.
The morning after the announcement, Ripa was absent from “Live.” “Kelly sees this as the ultimate betrayal,” a source told Page Six at the time.

The 44-year-old former NFL pro was spotted hitting the gym with his girlfriend, 27-year-old Kayla Quick, in New York City at around noon on Wednesday, both showing off their impressive physiques in tight workout clothes.
Her ex Justin said that Kayla had been a 'good girl' before high school, but that all changed around the time she turned 14 and was arrested for disorderly conduct when she got into a fight at her home in Port Charlotte, Florida.
The 'huge partier' also spent four months working at the popular strip club Thee Dollhouse, where a source who knew the young woman told Radar Online that she was able to 'hustle customers and could clear up to ,000 a week'.
The pair were spotted enjoying a holiday in St Barts with Kayla rocking a chic monochrome bikini teamed with glam mirrored shades.
We love these so-called 'double brow bar' sunnies which are by Dior, the structured shape and mirrored lenses give them a futuristic look which is so hot for SS16.
Another source confirmed that Ripa was having a “total meltdown” after being blindsided by the news.
In the days following the announcement, more and more information about Ripa and Strahan’s off-screen relationship was revealed.
"Michael was positive, professional and graceful throughout the shooting." He has also continuously complemented Ripa on-air, most recently during his first appearance on GMA on Thursday since announcing the big move.
