Kelly Ripa Says She Will Finally Return To 'Live' On Tuesday

Kelly Ripa (photosKelly Ripa photos) will return to her show 'Live with Kelly and Michael' on Tuesday.

Ripa, who has been off since Michael Strahan blindsided her last week that he was leaving the show to do 'Good Morning America' full time, thanks the staff of the show for giving her the time off in an email to producers.

"Sorry for this late Friday night email," she writes. "I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information."

"Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. Love, Kelly."

Ripa skipped Wednesday's show and the rest of the week after Strahan announced his surprise departure. The show's staff including executive producer Michael Gelman found out when Strahan simultaneously informed them and them media after Tuesday's taping.

Ripa's return will make for an awkward return since the pair haven't spoken since she stormed out on Tuesday.
