Kelly Ripa Steps Out In Gianvito Rossi Sandals As ‘Live’ Drama Continues

Kelly Ripa has been spotted for the first time since news broke that co-host Michael Strahan will be leaving “Live With Kelly and Michael” in September to work full time at “Good Morning America.” Ripa emerged this morning from her New York City apartment all smiles and sporting Gianvito suede peep-toe slingback sandals.

When ABC announced Tuesday that Strahan would be leaving “Live” for “GMA,” it came as a surprise to viewers — and according to many reports, the news blindsided Ripa. She did not show up for her show on Wednesday morning.

ABC has since revealed that Ripa will not host the next three episodes of “Live With Kelly and Michael,” including today, Friday and Monday, due to an already arranged trip. Sportscaster Erin Andrews and “Pretty Little Liars” actress Shay Mitchell will fill in for Ripa while she’s on vacation.

“My time with ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’ has been transformative, and my departure will be bittersweet,” Strahan said in a statement. “Kelly has been an unbelievable partner, and I am so thankful to her and the entire team. I am extremely grateful for the amazing support I’ve received from all of the fans.”
