Kelly Ripa is NOT hoping Michael Strahan quits his new job as co-anchor of “Good Morning America,” despite a bogus webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “false.”

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the former NFL player supposedly hates his new gig and is having so much trouble waking up early for the show that he’s “ready to throw in the towel.” Without a single source to back up its ridiculous claim, the site says, “If there’s one thing that Kelly Ripa would absolutely love, it’s seeing Michael Strahan quit ‘Good Morning America’ or, better yet, get fired from the show.”

The webloid goes on to claim Ripa is still “bitter and jealous” over Strahan leaving “Live” earlier this year, and would be “beaming with delight” if he were to be out of work. But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who assures us the website’s report is completely “false.” Not only is Strahan very happy with his new “GMA” gig, but his former co-host isn’t secretly hoping he’ll quit or get fired. This is all totally fabricated.

In fact, Gossip Cop has corrected several phony CDL articles surrounding Strahan’s departure from “Live.” We previously busted the outlet for wrongly reporting Ripa couldn’t find a replacement co-host for Strahan. And shortly before that, Gossip Cop debunked the webloid’s inaccurate claim Ripa earned her “Live” promotion by being a diva. This latest story about the situation is equally untrue.
