Jimmy Kimmel grilled Kelly Ripa about what happened between her and Michael Strahan.

As he co-hosted “Live” with Ripa Monday morning, the late night host wanted to know more about Michael Strahan’s abrupt exit. (RELATED: Michael Strahan Was Blindsided When Kelly Ripa Made This MASSIVE Dig At Him)

“Where’s Michael?” Kimmel asked Ripa. “Let’s start from the beginning, what happened? Was that genuine hugging and kissing?”

“We don’t fake hug and kiss,” Ripa said. “It wasn’t like air kissing. It was like a genuine ‘I’m going to miss you,’ ‘Good luck.'”

Then Kimmel turned to the show’s producer.

“Will you ever talk to Michael Strahan again?” Kimmel asked Michael Gelman. “Will he be back on the show as a guest?”

“At some point, it’s possible,” Gelman said.

Ripa was furious after she found out that Strahan would be leaving her show and joining “Good Morning America” this fall. She said she felt “disrespected and humiliated” and took a week off work. (RELATED: Kelly Ripa Wears All Black On Michael Strahan’s Last Day)
