SHE'S BACK AND IT'S AWKWARD!

This Work Relationship Has More Drama Than Any Romantic Relationship Out There!

They may not be married to each other, but hey - when you co-host one of the world's biggest shows together, you might as well be.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's relationship has more drama than any other relationship out there, and the world can't stop watching. 

Kelly returned to ABC's LIVE! this morning - almost a week after ABC announced that her partner in crime Michael Strahan would be leaving the show to join Good Morning America full-time.

As you might imagine - her return was awkward, genuine, and the best TV we've seen in a long time! The pair came out holding hands, making it clear that they're not feuding with each other. Kelly was met with applause and looked like she might cry before finally saying, "Guys, guys, guys. Our long national nightmare is over."

She went on to explain, "Apologies have been made, and the best thing to come out of all of this, you guys, is that our parent company has assured me that "Live" is a priority... But there is a commitment to this show; and to the people that work here; and most importantly to you, the viewers, who have watched us every day for 30 years. I am thrilled for Michael. I'm thrilled for you. This is a tremendous opportunity and I couldn't be, and we couldn't be, prouder of you. And everything we accomplished together."

Ironically, she said that part of her absense was due to a pre-planned anniversary trip with her husband, Mark Consuelos.
