Kelly & Michael: Bri Campbell Promotion & Going Away Party
Kelly and Michael’s whole staff got together last night to get cocktails. They were having a going away party for a staff member, but they can’t remember who because of all the drinks.
Kelly Ripa had a “large pour” of wine. It was a wine “chalice” that was definitely her money’s worth. Michael said larger portions are always better. He also said he hates using straws and tiny glasses because he looks ridiculous with his big hands. He prefers to look like a macho Don Draper with his glass.
The party was for Bri Campbell, who does all of the promos for Live! They’ve won a lot of awards because of her work, Kelly said. She is going out to California for a promotion because of her excellence.

Will Manti Te’o Make the NFL Draft?
Manti Te’o was not selected in the first round. He had a big national championship game but it didn’t go well. Michael thought that the catfishing scandal, which wasn’t his fault, hurt him professionally. There are six more rounds, but Michael thinks that he will get picked in the second round. Michael Strahan was the 40th pick overall in the second round.
The only difference in when you get picked is that, back in the day, men would get more money for their placement.
