Kelly Ripa has still not found a replacement for former co-host Michael Strahan since his departure several months ago. Reports also debunked that rumors replacement Christian Slater will going to take on the position. Could this mean that no one wants to work with the female host because of her diva attitude?Advertisement
Reports emerged recently that Kelly Ripa will welcome her new co-host Christian Slater for the “Live” show after Michael Strahan transferred to “Good Morning America.”
In a previous interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Hollywood actor Christian Slater has already said that if given the opportunity, he would love to work with the 46-year-old host.
“I love it, I live about, you know, six blocks away from there,” he told. “It’s one of the greatest jobs ever, so yeah, Kelly, I’m available! Let’s do it! I’m putting my hat in the ring, why not!”
A report from Celebrity Dirty Laundry meanwhile confirmed that Kelly Ripa showed signs that she is willing to work with him in the ABC talk show.
“Seeing just how charming and funny and cooperative he is, Kelly is willing to take a chance with him,” the report said. “Even though he’s got the Hollywood name recognition, Kelly can still feel like she’s the bigger star of the show with him by her side.”
However, there have been claims that Christian Slater will not replace Michael Strahan in the show and the recent reports about him are all speculations.
Gossip Cop clarified that Kelly Ripa and the producers of the show are still exploring possible names as her new co-host.
But what could be the reason why Kelly Ripa still has not found any replacement for Michael Strahan?
Is this related to her diva attitude that has been reported for months now following Michael Strahan’s demise on the “Live” show?
Michael Strahan left the syndicated show in May after deciding to work permanently with “Good Morning America,” Radar Online said.
In his latest tell-all book, the former New York Giants player said that his relationship with Kelly Ripa has not been all right, as he felt like a “nervous wreck” since day one of his work with her.
