    Please, please, please – I am just going to have to say that it is because of Michael. Because I refuse to believe that anyone admires or even tolerates that living brain donor called Kelly.

    Kelly, you are adorable and Michael you are soooooo hot!!!! I love your show!!!

    I totally agree that the show would not be a success if not for Michael Strahan being the host. Kelly acts like a complete idiot and Gelman encourages her. It’s really hard to believe that Disney would pay someone so much money for acting in such a poor manor. And she is not setting a good example for her poor little daughter lola. No young girl wants to see her mommy put her hands all over another man all the time and make a fool of herself in front of the whole country. Ratings are one thing, but making a complete fool of herself is another. I guess anything for a buck, right Kelly.
