Kelly & Michael: Altoids are a Food Group for Kelly Ripa
Kelly Ripa came out on the show today munching on some Altoids which she said have become a food group for her since she has started hosting the daytime talk show. It makes sense.

Michael Strahan couldn’t believe it wasn’t the wife nagging the driving husband.
“I have to go into Zen place or act like I am sleeping to get through the ride,” said Michael, adding that he can’t stand the way other people drive.

“There are no more fun times for kids in the cars. It’s all about safety. Part of the fun was will dad be able to hit up in the backseat,” said Kelly. She did get hit by her dad’s shoe sometimes. That was the only way her dad could reach her in the backseat.
