Andy Cohen Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis On 'Live With Kelly'
Huffington Post - 3 months
Andy Cohen appeared alongside Kelly Ripa on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning and made a startling revelation about his health. The 48-year-old “Watch What Happens Live” host revealed that he was recently diagnosed with skin cancer after Ripa noticed an abnormal mark on his lip.  “I have to shout you out for something that you don’t know I’m going to shout you out for,” Cohen told Ripa on the morning show, explaining that he had this “black dot on his bottom lip” that she first noticed in April.  Although Cohen didn’t get it checked out right away, he told the audience that Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, were adamant that he go to a dermatologist. “Finally, I did, and it was melanoma and they removed it and the whole thing, and I just want to thank you because you were so dogmatic,” he told Ripa. “And it’s all fine.” Cohen, who just released a book, Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries, said that his diagnosis has changed his attitu ...

Ashton Kutcher Freaks Out On Laura Prepon After She Forgets To Tell Him She's Engaged
Huffington Post - 5 months
It appears Ashton Kutcher just got a taste of his own medicine. When Kutcher joined Kelly Ripa as co-host on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning, he was looking forward to interviewing his friend and former “That ‘70s Show” co-star Laura Prepon. But not for reasons you’d assume. The actor was actually eager to yell at Prepon for not telling him about her recent engagement to their mutual friend, Ben Foster. “She just announced this engagement. I had to find out in the news! And she’s my friend, and it’s weird like that!” Kutcher told Ripa.  He went on to explain that when he and Mila Kunis got engaged, Prepon thought it was “crazy”; the trio had been friends for 20 years yet she didn’t know they were an item. But, as Kutcher explained, Prepon and Foster have been friends for two decades too, so their engagement is equally as shocking.  When Prepon came out for her interview, she hugged Kutcher, who mumbled, “I am so pissed off at you.”  “Pre, this is unac ...

Michael Strahan Sounds Really Surprised That He And Kelly Ripa Aren't Friends
Huffington Post - 5 months
Michael Strahan must be living in a parallel universe, because for some odd reason, he’s under the impression that he and Kelly Ripa should still be friends.  In a new interview with People, the former NFL player and former “Live With Kelly and Michael” co-host opened up about leaving the show, but conveniently left out the part where he blindsided Ripa with his announcement before going public with it. Ripa, hurt by the news, then refused to show up to work. “I wasn’t surprised by her reaction at all, but I can’t control somebody else’s actions,” Strahan said. “I was there four years, and it’s about more than just being in front of the camera.” While his decision to leave Ripa in the dark was made with a few other execs, the 44-year-old now seems upset that the split painted him as the one in the wrong (hint: he was).  “Toward the end of it all, we didn’t really communicate that much,” Strahan said. “I kinda looked at it like, ‘It was what it was.’ I come from a business ...

Mario Lopez Ends Those 'Live With Kelly' Co-Hosting Rumors
Huffington Post - 5 months
Ever since Michael Strahan’s controversial exit from “Live,” rumors have been flying about who is going to replace him. One of the subjects of those whispers is Bayside graduate Mario Lopez. Lopez has been a guest co-host on the show before, and was cheeky when Ellen DeGeneres asked him about the possibility of joining Kelly Ripa back in April. But unfortunately, A.C. Slater is officially tapping out. Lopez confirmed to The Huffington Post that the rumors are now just rumors. “No, I mean those were flattering and very sweet, but I’m here in LA, and I’ve already got a couple jobs and my family here. But she’s awesome. I’d love to go back and hang with her anytime,” said Lopez. The jobs he’s referring to, hosting “Extra” and a radio show, aren’t enough to keep him away from another new project, however. Lopez is partnering with Box Tops for Education in honor of the program’s 20th birthday. You can see the actor starring as a gym teacher in Box Tops’ new “Don’t Be Absent fr ...
