  1. While I do think that she should have been informed earlier, I also think she is acting childishly. Not sure what her end game is, but I don’t imagine her current behavior will help her get there.

  2. Typical of the rats at ABC/Disney. Live is a syndicated show and GMA is theirs. It’s failing and they think that Michael will be its saving grace. Won’t work, rats!!!!! You treat your employees and viewers like garbage and that’s why most of your shows are failing. And they will continue to fail until you learn!!! And Michael Strahan —– shame on you for playing their game!!!! I will not watch Live until Kelly returns!!!!

  3. She should have been informed earlier but not showing up for work the next day or couple of days??? I don’t know what I would do in the same situation.

  4. Wow, the first co-worker in history to not be consulted about the future or their other co-worker. And Ripa is only paid something like $15 million annually to endure this pain? Should anyone other than Ripa take more than 2 seconds to even ponder this situation or even care? Silly nonsense.
