Anderson Cooper And Mario Lopez Are Open To Hosting ‘Live’ With Kelly Ripa

The rumor mills on who will replace Michael Strahan on “Live!” are in full swing! Fan-favorite Anderson Cooper appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen and said that there are no offers yet, but he would love to work with Kelly.

He said: “Look, I’m very happy at CNN. It would be a dream to work with Kelly, but nobody’s offering anything, so….”

Meanwhile, Mario Lopez was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and refused to shut down rumors that he could be the one.

He said: “I know, people were saying that. I love Kelly. I’ve guest-hosted with her a few times — she’s awesome. I actually did a movie with her husband, Mark [Consuelos], who’s a real good guy. I’m looking forward to going back and guest-hosting again. Yes, I’m looking forward to it.”

So exciting!

Either one, I’m OK really. Although, why not drop Kelly altogether and just have Mario and Anderson. Yum.

Should be an interesting summer!
