Florence + The Machine- “Say My Name”
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan were joined in the audience by Kelly’s Aunt Pauline, who had a cast on her arm; feel better Aunt Pauline! But something that got everyone in a great mood was the song that played while the hosts danced out to their seats. They had previously played it on the show, and Kelly called it the ‘Soul Cycle’ song, because it had played at one of her classes. Soul Cycle then received hundreds of phone calls asking about the song. Well, you can stop calling; it’s “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + the Machine (Calvin Harris remix).
Second Presidential Debate: Obama Vs. Romney
Tonight is the second Presidential Debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. Once again, Kelly and her daughter, Lola, will be watching as a part of Lola’s homework assignment.
Michael is looking forward to watching the debate, because last time, a lot of President Obama’s supporters were disappointed with his performance. Michael believes that he needs to be more aggressive, sort of like his running mate, Vice President Joe Biden. The VP debate was a lot more entertaining, according to Kelly. It was scrappy and feisty; and if people are entertained, they are more likely to pay attention to the issues.
Less Sleep = Weight Gain and Diabetes
Bad news for those light sleepers out there (I’m looking at you, Kelly Ripa): less sleep can lead to health issues. When your body doesn’t get enough sleep, it reduces the ability of fat cells to respond properly to hormone insulin. This could lead to weight gain and type II Diabetes.
The average recommended amount of sleep for adults is seven to nine hours. Michael was lucky to get nine hours last night (but that is a rare occasion). Kelly has poor sleeping patterns, and she usually gets around five.
Tan Bodybuilder Meets Tan Mom
Everyone knows that Kelly is obsessed with the Tan Mom. However, we haven’t heard from her in a while, so Michael and Kelly met a new tan friend! He is a European body builder, and his entire muscular body is unbelievably tan, while his head is completely white! Michael said that it makes him look like he’s a bodybuilder.
Kelly wanted to create a mashup of the tan bodybuilder with the tan mom–like a Tan Monster of Frankenstein! She had Tan Mom’s head cut out from a picture and placed it on the giant, muscular body. Creepy!
$3,000 Car Coming to United States
Kelly found the perfect Christmas gift for Michael–if he can fit! It’s the world’s cheapest car, currently being sold for $3,000. It’s called the Ta-Ta Nano (which, ironically, Kelly said was her nickname in high school).
Ears Should Be Self-Cleaning
Kelly uses Q-Tips to clean her ears, like many people. But according to a new study, you should put those Q-Tips away. Ears are supposed to be self-cleaning, and wax build up should naturally flow out of your ears. This also protects against dust, dirt, and even bugs–gross!
Kelly & Michael: Giants Player Car Stolen
Here’s a story where Michael can give an insider’s perspective. Recently, a Giants player had his car stolen while the team was away for a game. It was a 1996 Chevy Caprice–why the thief would steal that over the Porsches, Ferraris, and other luxury cars that Giants own, didn’t make any sense to Kelly or Michael!
Michael explained that the Giants do get their own special parking lot with security, but obviously, someone must have been sleeping on the job!
Bachelor Ben and Courtney Break Up
Now for some truly devastating news: former Bachelor couple Ben and Courtney have broken up and called off their engagement. She has returned her diamond ring to Neil Lane. It’s sad news, but for anyone who knows the track record of the show, it’s not exactly surprising!
