The 'Live! with Kelly and Michael' co-host was reported to have been so upset at Strahan's announcement of his departure last week that she didn't appear on the show the next day.
Following a week of tense drama and speculation, Kelly Ripa finally returned to ‘Live!’ on Tuesday (April 26th) for the first time since her co-host Michael Strahan announced his departure to ‘Good Morning America’.

“Guys, guys, guys – our long national nightmare is over,” she quipped to laughs from the studio. “Look, I am fairly certain that there are trained professional snipers with tranquilizer darts in case I drift too far off message.”

Actress Paula Jai Parker has peeled back the truth curtain for black actresses in Hollywood, revealing desperate times have forced her into an extended stay hotel and all the fast cars and parties are just for show.
