ABC announced today who will be co-hosting Live with Kelly’s biggest show of the year aka the Halloween episode and that person is, drum roll please, Jerry O’Connell. Therefore, it is looking more and more like Kelly Ripa wants the Stand By Me star to sit by her on a Monday to Friday basis.
Why? Well like I said, it is their biggest show of the year and with several of the other candidates like Josh Groban, Matt Bomer, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Cohen, Jussie Smollett and Chris Harrison also appearing on it; I would think the person who is co-hosting is the lead candidate to be the person to replace Michael Strahan’s huge shoes.
I think he would be the perfect person for the job. He has chemistry with Ripa. He is super likeable because he is one of the nicest people in Showbiz. He is easy on the eyes. And most importantly, he is very very funny. What more do you need for this show?
Back when they were looking for someone to replace Regis Philbin and Strahan was one of the candidates, I knew he was the perfect choice. Now, my instincts say that O’Connell is the perfect choice. It looks like I am not alone because they are giving him the big episode.
Are you liking the concept of Live with Kelly and Jerry or are you thinking they should go with someone else? Who do you think they should give the job to? Or do you like the rotating co-hosts filling in? If you are like me, then you just want them to announce someone already. After all it has been 6 months so it is about time. Right?
Part of being Kelly Ripa’s co-host on Live with Kelly is to be tortured. Last week, she made Jerry O’Connell get his eyebrows plucked on live TV, but it didn’t stop there. The next day when Priyanka Chopra was on the show, the daytime host asked the actress to demonstrate some of her best stunt moves. It gets worse for Jerry because Ripa made him do it all in heels.
Not only is Chopra one of the World’s Most Beautiful Women, she is also one of the toughest. That is why she does her own stunts in heels on the Quantico. Since she does her own fight moves, she has learned a thing or two and she gave O’Connell a lesson his body won’t soon forget. She went for his throat before eventually throwing him to ground. Amazing that someone so little has such big muscles. In other words, don’t mess with her.
And finally, I will keep saying it until it happens, why doesn’t ABC just give Jerry O’Connell the job already. What are they waiting for? He is the perfect man for the job!
One of the perks of co-hosting Live with Kelly, is that you are going to be tortured in some way. For some reason, fans of the morning talk show find Jerry O’Connell’s eyebrows creepy, so Kelly Ripa brought in an eyebrow artist to shape them.
Therefore, the fat kid from Stand By Me, was sat down in a chair as someone plucked out the hairs above his eyebrows one by one. He didn’t even get the wax treatment, the unruly strands were yanked out by a Tweezer one by one. Because they chose the slower process, you can watch him suffer for several minutes until the man was done torturing.
Was it worth it? For him, he looks great. For me, I am a sadist, so I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so, I just wish ABC would give him the job already. If he is willing to suffer on live television, let’s see what else they can do to him!
Josh Groban is going to make his Broadway debut next month, and on Live with Kelly yesterday he told his co-host, Kelly Ripa. he is going to look different in The Great Comet. That is because he will be wearing a fat suit to play Pierre. Which is a good thing that he can take it off after the show because I don’t know how the Grobanites would feel if his scale is like raise me up in the numbers it shows. They most likely will want the man they know to greet them at the backstage door. Now me, I don’t care how he looks as long as he still has that voice that is as smooth as the flight of a comet!
Will Forte was on Live with Kelly today and during a commercial break she asked him about his back hair. The Last Man on Earth told her that when he does shirtless scenes on the funny Fox show, you can sometimes see them when his back is back lit. Production asked him if he wanted them to be digitally removed and he said no.
I never noticed them, but next time he takes his shirt off, you know I will be looking out for them. And I know you will be too.
Now when it comes to Josh Groban, too bad they cut off his answer. I will just assume the front matches the back!
