GARYTALK.COM (04/22/2016) – No, we’re not talking about Kelly Ripa and her husband Michael splitting up their marriage. We’re referring to the sad announcement that Michael Strahan, Ripa’s on air partner since Regis Philbin announced his retirement, has decided to make a career move that forces the breakup of the successful co-hosts. We’re also referring to the sad commentaries of people on Facebook, and elsewhere, who have placed all of the blame on Kelly Ripa, suggesting she is a (insert B-Word here).
