Michael Strahan Says on Live! That He Is Going to Good Morning America

Originally posted 04/01/2014 10:45PM

Michael Strahan may soon join Good Morning America, he confirmed on Wednesday morning Live! – with some reservations.

Though ABC declined to comment, a source confirms to PEOPLE that ABC News has been talking to the former New York Giants defensive end, 42, for months.

Strahan, speaking to his Live! co-host Kelly Ripa on the air Wednesday, said the news about his joining the top-rated morning show – which he said he found out when he checked his text messages after a screening Tuesday night – was "surprising."

So, pressed Ripa, are you going?

"If I read the papers, I am," he said. "But this is my home," he added, assuring her that when the GMA gig kicks in, he will still costar with her on the 9 a.m. show.

Watch Mandy Patinkin's Surprise Reunion with Two Long-Lost Ex-Girlfriends

Originally posted 02/20/2014 09:00AM



As Saul Berenson on Homeland, Mandy Patinkin can find anyone. But in real-life, the hirsute star of stage and screen had been stumped in his efforts to get in touch with a pair of ex-girlfriends from high school and college.

As Patinkin explained during a visit to Live with Kelly and Michael in December, he had been looking for a woman named Sandy, who had given him her first kiss. That appearance led to a few phone calls between the two grammar-school sweethearts, but no face-to-face meeting.

All that changed on Wednesday's show. As the Princess Bride star recounted the story to the hosts, a mysterious woman came up behind him – Sandy Hyman, live and in the flesh.

The conversation that parents have with their kids about the birds and the bees can be uncomfortable, but for Liam Hemsworth, it got taken to a whole new level of awkward – his mom, Leonie, was also his sex-ed teacher at school.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star talked about his embarrassing experiences during an interview on Live with Kelly and Michael on Wednesday.

"I was in her class – I would come in for the first part of it and leave half way through," he admitted about his school days back home in Australia.
