Kelly & Michael: Michael Strahan Pat Summerall Award
Super Bowl weekend is here, and Kelly Ripa was proud to be part of Michael Strahan’s honor with the Pat Summerall Hero Award for his work with St. Jude Children’s Hospital. “When I see you outside of our workplace, it reminds me of what a special person you are,” Kelly said of being a guest at his big night.
Michael said that there were a lot of surprise video tributes, and his old teammates honored him. “It makes you feel like either you’re old or like you did something right,” he said, making sure to give credit to all the other people in his life who support what he does. “You need help in your life to get anywhere you are, and you guys help me every day, so how could you not help other people? That’s what life is about,” he said.
Are Kelly & Michael Married?
Ripa said that Strahan has many talents and gifts, which he gives freely to others, and she was proud to know him as a colleague and a friend. Kelly’s husband, Mark Consuelos, was there, which helped answer questions about whether Kelly and Michael are married in real life (they are not).
Kelly said she was spellbound by Live’s executive in charge of production, Art Moore, who was at her table at Michael’s event. Based on Kelly’s cell phone video, Moore spent the entire night with his eyes closed, even while eating dinner. According to Art, he has small eyes and when he wears glasses and looks down, it appears that his eyes are closed.
Michael Strahan said you can donate to St. Jude’s Game Day Give Back at stjude.org, to invite your friends to give to children’s cancer research.
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Bedtime
Strahan got to attend another party after being honored, and the band Kings of Leon was there, along with Bill Murray and Rob Thomas. There are a lot of A-listers in town for the big Super Bowl weekend. He said he got in bed at midnight, an hour later than his goal.
Kelly said she usually doesn’t get to bed before 1 a.m., even though she has to get up so early. She blamed her kids procrastinating while doing their homework, which can go into the wee hours.
