Kelly Ripa: Spring Cleaning
Kelly and Michael were welcomed by an enthusiastic Monday morning crowd to start a brand new show. The hosts both had great weekends, even though Kelly spent most of her time cleaning. After years of being an actress, Kelly has become very financially conservative, which means she holds on to a lot of old clothes and things she’ll never use again. Finally, she cleaned out all of her closets, just in time for spring.
Michael Strahan: Knicks vs. Heat
Michael, on the other hand, had a bit of a party weekend. He hit many New York hot spots including Arlington Club, Bagatelle and the Darby. On Sunday, he and Nicole watched the Knicks vs. Heat game. Michael has good friends on both teams, but ultimately, the Miami Heat won the game.
Michael Strahan: Woman Kicked Out Of Gym For Talking On Cell Phone
Should someone be kicked out of a gym for talking on their cell phone? Kelly and Michael debated this topic, because Michael witnessed this very thing over the weekend. He was at Planet Fitness, and a woman was asked to leave after answering her call. Kelly pointed out that when people have cell phones at the gym, they could be taking naked pictures of you in the locker room. “From now on I will only shower at home,” Michael said.
Kelly once took a kickboxing class that totally kicked her butt. She could barely keep up and became so flustered that she showered afterwards with her underwear still on. It reminds me of those nightmares about going to school without any clothes on, except in reverse.
Either way, it’s important to get your workout in when you can. Michael read that 67% of people sleep better after a good workout, while people who don’t work out have restful sleep only 39% of the time.
Kelly Ripa: Google+ Hangout With the First Lady
