Kelly Ripa still hasn't forgiven Michael Strahan, and she's being super passive-aggressive about it

Passive-aggressive much?

Kelly Ripa clearly still hasn't forgiven Michael Strahan for blindsiding her with news of his exit from hosting Live! with her. Only now, she's taking it out on him in a much more subtle way.

During the opener for their Friday show, she took a clear dig at Strahan, asking for his opinion on something that's clearly a sore subject: his divorces.

"There’s a great article in the paper and I want to get your take on it because I don’t have a take on it," Ripa said enthusiastically. "But I want yours. So you’ve gotten divorced..."

As soon as the words were out of her mouth, Strahan made a face like he was clearly shocked and annoyed, then quickly tried to cover it up.

Strahan has been divorced twice — he was married to Wanda Hutchins from 1992 to 1996, and Jean Muggli from 1999 until they had a long, bitter, painful divorce in 2006. The details of their ugly split were very public, so it comes as no surprise that Strahan was taken aback that Ripa would bring it up so casually on their show.

Meanwhile, Ripa just celebrated her 20th anniversary with her husband, Mark Consuelos.

Strahan announced last week that he intends to leave Live! next month before he starts a full-time hosting gig on Good Morning America in the fall. Ripa reportedly found out about his departure at the same time the news was made public. After the blindside, she took several days off from appearing on Live! and reports say she was deeply upset with both Strahan and the network.
