Seven months later and Live! With Kelly still doesn’t have a new co-host…and we love it.
Since Michael Strahan’s infamous exit from the morning show, Kelly Ripa has welcomed many co-hosts as Live!’s exhaustive search for Strahan’s replacement continues…and shows no signs of coming to an end anytime soon.
“We really didn’t set a time frame for ourselves,” Kelly Ripa recently said on Watch What Happens Live of the prolonged co-host search. “We just wanted to wait until we found the right person. … read more
Kelly Ripa’s 2016 started off just like the previous three years had. Enjoy the rest of winter vacation and then head back to work with Michael Strahan on Live! With Kelly and Michael.
And so the first few months of the year went along, with the infectiously upbeat duo bantering over their giant mugs, interviewing guests, giving away trips and otherwise looking as cozy as ever.
So weren’t we surprised when on April 19 Strahan announced he was leaving Live! to join ABC’s Good Morning America full-time! … read more
After six months, 51 co-hosts, lots of back and forth and too many teases to count, Live! With Kelly still hasn’t filled the open seat beside Kelly Ripa since Michael Strahan’s departure.
In fact, a source tells E! News, the decision could be made “as late as May,” which is “what worked the last time she was searching for a co-host” after Regis Philbin left the show 2011.
Not to mention, the constant suspense of waiting for the decision has made for a very exciting couple of months for Live!, which … read more
If there’s one thing moms love, it’s having all their kids together under the same roof.
With that in mind, perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Kelly Ripa was all smiles Sunday afternoon when her three children were all at the same place at the same time.
In her latest Instagram post, the LIVE! With Kelly co-host posed for a selfie with husband Mark Consuelos. And yes, their three children were on board to document the family moment.
“The band is back together! ❤❤❤❤❤,” Kelly captioned … read more
Kelly Ripa is still looking for a cohost for Live following Michael Strahan’s exit in May, which seems like a very long, dragged out process. I know that they expect the new person to last a handful of years but they had strong candidates months ago and instead of picking one they’re going for ratings and headlines. This seems to be working somewhat, so I guess I can’t blame them. Anyway the latest guy to do a good job is Richard Curtis, a 30 year-old high school teacher and father from Pennsylvania. … read more
Back by popular demand is Richard Curtis!
Live! With Kelly contest winner Curtis returned to co-host with Kelly Ripa Monday, prompting longtime host Kelly to gush about the teacher-turned-daytime talk show host.
“You were so good at [hosting] that we were backstage behind your back. You were doing a radio interview, and we were like, ‘We need to get Richard Curtis back for another day, so let’s make that happen as fast as possible.'”
Curtis was still in disbelief about having been asked to return … read more
In niche casting news on par with that brief era when Jodie Foster couldn’t stop making movies where she was trapped in very small spaces, this week marks the third time in 10 years that Rachel McAdams has played the serene and supportive love interest to a man whose hobbies include the ability to weave and unweave the threads of time and space. Most recently, she’s playing the ex-girlfriend in Marvel’s Doctor Strange; on the last go-around, she was the trophy of time-travel dramedy About Time; … read more
Ladies and gentleman, we have a dark horse in the competition to become Live!’s new co-host. Since Michael Strahan’s high-profile exit from Live!, the search has been on for Kelly Ripa’s new co-host, with a merry-go-round of guests filling the seat next to her, attempting to win over Kelly, now an executive producer, executives and viewers. Some of the biggest names in the running includeJerry O’Connell, who E! News was told “really” wants the job, and Fred Savage, among others.
However, that all … read more
A brand-new face appears to have entered the race in becoming Kelly Ripa’s permanent co-host on Live!
Just a few days after Richard Curtis appeared on Live With Kelly after winning a social media contest to co-host, viewers and productions alike are left feeling pretty impressed.
According to TMZ, the Pennsylvania high school teacher “blew everyone away” with his talents Friday with staffers impressed with his poise and self-confidence.

She shot to fame as Tiffany on EastEnders.
And Martine McCutcheon enjoyed the sights of her home city on Friday as she indulged in some retail therapy after lunch at London’s Pied a Terre.
The 40-year-old actress looked chic, yet casual in a white top and fitted blazer which showed off her curvaceous figure. Martine teamed her look with a pair of skinny jeans as she strolled forth in studded sandals which showed off her foot tattoo.
The Laurence Olivier Award winner seemed content as she juggled … read more
As I mentioned at the end of Sunday’s post, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift had a “date night” in Australia this weekend. They went out to eat at Gemelli, an Italian restaurant in Broadbeach. While there are many details of the date night, unfortunately none of those details involve Tiddles feeding each other pasta and meatballs, Lady and the Tramp-style, nor do the details involve fudge and swan pastries. According to Us Weekly, “Tom looked smitten with her as they talked softly and she … read more
Shortly before Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up on/around New Year’s Day 2013, she traveled to England with Styles and spent time with his family. They stepped out for a series of pap strolls while in England, one of which stuck in my memory bank – you can see the photos here. Compare those pics to these photos of Tom Hiddleston and Swifty in Suffolk, England on Sunday. Taylor’s songs all blend together, and all of her boyfriend rollouts/pap strolls blend together too. She is formulaic … read more
She made her debut as a Loose Women panellist on Thursday.
And Martine McCutcheon ensured she fit in straight away as she immediately confessed she wanted to sleep with her former Love Actually co-star Hugh Grant in the saucy lunchtime chat.

Well, here’s some good news… probably. Yesterday, we discussed whether or not Kate Moss was and is banging the 18-year-old son of her good friends. The 18-year-old is Jake Curtis, son of Richard Curtis and Emma Freud. Kate has been family-friends with the Curtis-Freuds for decades, since before little Jake was even born. Sources indicated to the Daily Mail that Kate might have seduced young Jake while his parents are away in New York. But Kate heard those stories and this is her answer: she … read more
Kate Moss’s marriage to Jamie Hince fell apart last year. By July 2015, they were living apart and by the fall, they had both reportedly moved on with new lovers. Their breakup was not without drama, and reportedly they both cheated, which is… not surprising? The only thing that surprises me is that adultery was a dealbreaker for Kate and Jamie. In any case, Kate moved on with a 28-year-old whippersnapper, Count Nikolai von Bismarck. Seriously. But now the British tabloids are saying that Kate … read more
