Kelly Ripa and her former go-go dancer husband Mark Consuelos won’t team up for the morning chat show “Live! With Kelly”. According to OTRC, Ripa doesn’t feel that her marriage would survive if her husband permanently filled the vacancy left by Regis Philbin’s departure.

“No one would make me happier than Mark,” Ripa explained, “but he values our marriage and he says that he doesn’t see how we could stay married and both do that show.” At least they know their limits.

According to US Weekly, the producers of the program are eyeballing Josh Groban, Jerry O’Connell, and Nick Lachey. Personally, I think that Groban would be a perfect fit for the show. He’s funny, witty, and just an all-around cool guy. Rumors were swirling a few days ago that NFL star Michael Strahan was the front runner for the position.

The only thing that’s for sure right now is that Mark Consuelos won’t be a permanent addition to the show.

    I would love to see Josh Groban as co-host with Kelly. He is intelligent, funny, has an amazing voice (I would hope he would sing occasionally),a generous loving heart and he’s good looking to boot! He and Kelly work well together because they are both so REAL.

    I think Josh Groban would be a great fit with Kelly !

  • Jill

    It might not be good for her marriage if Josh is chosen either. I think she has a little crush on Josh. Her hands are all over him when they co-host.

  • Marianne Morris

    Josh Groban is perfect for the show. I would watch every day if they were the team. He has all the qualities it takes.
