Dancing with the Stars’ Erin Andrews To Fill In For Kelly Ripa Who Went On Vacation Early

ABC is doing some serious damage control after news broke that Kelly Ripa was upset she was not informed of Michael Strahan’s departure from Live! this September.

Kelly did not appear on the show on Wednesday and apparently had gone on vacation with her family to Turks and Caicos a few days early. She was already scheduled to go this weekend.

According to Variety reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister, the search for Michael Strahan’s replacement starts immediately.

Dancing with the Stars co-host Erin Andrews will fill in for Kelly on Thursday and Friday. Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars will co-host on Monday.
