Kelly Ripa Returns to 'Live With Kelly and Michael' After Michael Strahan Exit Drama: Live!!

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan
 Welcome back, little miss sunshine! Kelly Ripa is scheduled to return to Live With Kelly and Michael on Tuesday, April 26, a week after Michael Strahan announced he's leaving Live With Kelly and Michael for a full-time gig on Good Morning America — and caused a firestorm at the show.
Ripa took a sick day on Wednesday, April 20, a day after Strahan shocked and "blindsided" his work wife with the announcement. (As Us Weekly revealed, she had already planned to take Friday and Monday off for her 20th anniversary vacation with her husband, Mark Consuelos.) Tuesday marks her official return to the show after a contentious seven days. In an email to staffers sent last Friday, Ripa wrote: "I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information. Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. Love, Kelly."
