Lara Spencer Michael Strahan Flirt


Is Lara Spencer really being “over-the-top flirty” with “Good Morning America” co-host Michael Strahan? That’s the claim in one of the new tabloids, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

An article in the latest issue of Life & Style says Spencer “has the hots” for her colleague and has been making eyes at him on the set of the morning show. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “Lara has a little crush on Michael” and constantly flirts with him, despite having a boyfriend.

The outlet’s dubious insider further claims the “GMA” anchor will “often wink at Michael off camera” during on-air segments about sex, adding, “He was initially flattered by all the attention, but now it just seems to make him uncomfortable.” The frequently discredited tabloid goes on to theorize, “It can only be a matter-of-time before they have to confront the flirtatious tension.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source closely involved in the production of the morning show, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s report is entirely “false.” We’re told Spencer doesn’t act inappropriately towards her co-worker, and the claim otherwise is complete nonsense. And seriously, is Spencer not supposed to make eye contact with Strahan when speaking to him on-camera?

Of course, Gossip Cop has had to repeatedly debunk many phony reports surrounding the various hosts of the ABC morning news show, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise. We previously busted the publication for wrongly reporting Strahan was causing problems on the set of “GMA.” Gossip Cop also called out the tabloid’s sister outlet, In Touch, for concocting a fake behind-the-scenes feud between Strahan and co-host Robin Roberts.

As for Spencer’s alleged flirting habits, Gossip Cop previously debunked a National Enquirer article alleging the “GMA” anchor had a “too-close-for-comfort friendship” with “Today Show” veteran Matt Lauer. Like that report, this latest one is equally fictitious.
