Kelly & Michael: First Photo Shoot
On Live! with Kelly & Michael September 13, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan were both coming off a busy night. The day before, the new co-hosts had done their very first official photo shoot together. Kelly showed off some great new pictures of she and Michael, she and Gelman, and she and Michael AND Gelman. There were lots of great shots to choose from.
Kelly & Michael: Obie the Obese Dachsund
Michael was fascinated by the story of Obie the obese Dachsund. Poor Obie had to be rescued from his previous owner, because he was overfed and had become forty pounds overweight; on a tiny dog, that’s a lot of weight! Right now, Obie is on a diet and exercise program that will help him to drop the pounds.
September 24 kicks off National Dog Week on Live, so Michael was hoping that the show could book Obie. Let’s hope we get to see him on the show!
Kelly & Michael: Nick and Vanessa Lachey Welcome Son
A big congratulations was in order for Nick Lachey and his wife, Vanessa, who have welcomed their baby boy into the world. The little guy’s name is Camden John, and he’s sure to be a beautiful baby.
Kelly and Michael then shared some stories of the ultimate faux pas: asking a woman when she’s due, when she’s not even pregnant (or has already had the baby). Kelly had a woman ask her that question when Michael was about six months old. Michael asked a woman who had already had her baby, and then he felt terrible about it when he realized his mistake.
So, the moral of the story is: just don’t ask! Michael said, until he’s “shaking that baby’s hand,” he’s not ever bringing the subject of babies and pregnancy up again.
Michael Strahan: Arbitrage Review
Michael shared a picture from the premiere of Arbitrage in New York, which he attended. He was posing with the film’s director, producer, and actor Zac Efron. Arbitrage stars Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Roth. Michael said it’s an incredible movie with great performances.
Kelly couldn’t help but bring up her love for Richard Gere; but, then again, what lady can? She found Richard to be at his dreamiest in An Officer and a Gentleman.
Kelly & Michael: Ex-Boyfriend Attic Stalker
Here’s a story that’s sure to creep you out: a South Carolina woman recently discovered that her ex-boyfriend had been living undetected in her attic and spying on her family. He had been using the ceiling vents to keep an eye on her, and had been up there for months. Doesn’t that just give you the chills?
Kelly said that this story is a perfect soap opera plot. On a soap opera, when a character dies, it doesn’t mean that they will never return; it just means contract negotiations, or perhaps plastic surgery. A character truly disappears by “going up to the attic.”
Kelly & Michael: McDonald’s Calories Displayed on Menu
Kelly was happy to hear that McDonald’s would now be placing the calorie count of their food on the menu for customers to see. She said that seeing calories displayed helps her decide what to eat.
Not Michael; he would rather just eat what he wants, and then exercise later. Kelly explained that this mentality perfectly highlights the differences between men and women. Kelly said that when a man gives up soda, he loses twenty-seven pounds. If a woman gives up soda, she starts eating chips to compensate.
Kelly & Michael: iPhone 5 Released
The new iPhone 5 has got the whole world buzzing; even though the iPhone 4 just came out! Michael said that he can wait to get the new one, because really, how different can it be? He has an iPhone 4S, and when Kelly asked what the ‘S’ stands for, Michael said “sucker.”
Endless Summer Trivia: Jeremy Irons
A lucky caller won a great trip to the Tradewinds Resort in St Pete Beach, Florida, during Endless Summer Trivia. She remembered that Jeremy Irons played real-life person Claus von Bulow in Reversal of Fortune. Plus, an audience member received a gift card to Omaha Steaks.
Kelly & Michael: Cutest Kid Search Pictures
The adorable photographs from the Cutest Kid Search Photo Shoot were also revealed on Live! September 13. They are all so cute; how can you possibly choose? On September 14, the winners will be announced.
