What did Michael Strahan know and when did he know it? Strahan, who lives in Los Angeles, put his main home up for sale last January, a month before his first guest shot as Kelly Ripa’s co-host. He and fiancee Nicole Murphy kept their beach house in Hermosa Beach, California. But a few days before the “Live” rumblings started to go wild, Strahan and Murphy put that house on the market, as well. When I first wrote about the Kelly sweepstakes on July 5th, Strahan was tipped to me as the second guy on the show’s wish list. He was just finishing a five day srint as guest host. He’d come in February, March, and May, each time impressing everyone. Interestingly, his first guest host stint wasn’t until February 7th–by then, a lot of different candidates had already tried their hand at sitting in Regis Philbin’s old chair. Strahan is not replacing Regis–no one can do that. He’s simply the new co-host. Will he tell Regis like stories? If he talks about Eddie Murphy, whose ex wife he will marry, presumably in a Michael Gelman inspired fantasy wedding next February.
