"Apologies have been made," Ripa said cryptically, after returning to the stage hand-in-hand with Strahan. "It started a much greater conversation about communication and consideration, and most importantly, respect in the workplace." Intriguingly enough, Live's cameras don't cut to show us Strahan's reaction even once during Ripa's speech, which you can watch in full above.
"This is entertainment," the co-hosts reminded the audience -- and themselves -- before returning to their regularly scheduled programming, as it were. Strahan and Ripa's last show together is May 13, and we have no doubt that their remaining time together will be entertaining, indeed.
