Michael Strahan has been co-hosting the show Live with Kelly Ripa for quite a while now but he has finally had to have a go at taking the show on solo. Kelly, who previously hosted alone before Michael was brought on board, is currently on vacation and Michael says that he now knows what she went through, hosting alone.
Strahan was being interviewed by Extra, when he explained, "It's going great, she's on vacation, so she texted me and said ‘you're going to do great.' and I said ‘my hope is that I keep it going and don’t burn down the building before you get back.’"
He added, "I'm excited about everybody, cause everybody's different, so I'm getting a taste of the medicine Kelly had to go through before they made the decision to bring me on. It makes me appreciate her even more."
Fortunately for Michael Strahan, he is not completely alone, as he has the company of guest hosts. Kristin Chenoweth joined Michael on Monday and Tuesday, while his co-host today (Thursday, March 28), is Maria Menounos, who hosts Extra.
