Kelly Ripa is trying to escape all the daytime drama.
Just a few days after the news broke that Michael Strahan would be leaving LIVE! With Kelly and Michael for a new position within ABC, his co-host is ready for a little vacation away from New York City.
E! News is reporting that Kelly is in Turks and Caicos for a little getaway, so we might not see her on the show for the rest of the week.
Apparently, the getaway has been planned since February and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
A source revealed to E! News that Kelly did not receive a heads up about her co-host leaving the show after four years. When executives eventually broke the news after a morning taping, the blond beauty wasn’t exactly prepared.
