“Is it weird to think people are walking on top of you right now?” McHale asked her.

“They are now calling her ‘Queen Kelly’ backstage,” said a source told the New York Post. “It’s like her royal court and everyone is being loyal and falling in line.” (RELATED: Jimmy Kimmel Asks Kelly Ripa ‘What Happened’ With Michael Strahan)
