Kelly Ripa Has Demanded For Ryan Seacrest To Cancel His ‘GMA’ Appearance
Kelly Ripa is seemingly continuing the long-held Michael Strahan curse, but this time she’s channeling it towards Ryan Seacrest, whom she is demanding to cancel a Good Morning America appearance at the last minute.
“Ryan was scheduled to be on Wednesday’s show well in advance,” a source told Page Six TV. “He’s been on the show rundown for a week. Then yesterday, or maybe even as late as last night, Kelly threw a s–t fit and told him he couldn’t do ‘GMA,’ so he pulled his appearance.”
Of course, Ryan should be promoting ABC’s American Idol with judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. Only thing is, not only is Good Morning America a competitor, it’s also where Michael Strahan works — or should I say, works now after he abruptly left Kelly alone without warning in 2016.
“It’s very clear that Ryan wants to stay on her good side. She’s an executive producer on the show, so she has a lot of pull. It’s fair to say she has a lot of influence over him. He joined her show. It sounds like she still feels threatened,” the source said. “There’s still bad blood with Kelly and Strahan, and she doesn’t want history to repeat itself and Ryan to be lured to ‘GMA’ too.”
