Michael Strahan’s 2016: From a criminal girlfriend to Kelly Ripa betrayal

Michael Strahan‘s sudden departure from “Live” was one of the biggest stories of 2016.

Already forgotten the nitty-gritty details of the scandal? Relive the year in Strahan.

In January, it was revealed Michael Strahan’s 27-year-old girlfriend had a criminal past. According to police records, Kayla Quick was arrested twice: at 14 for disorderly conduct, and in 2005 for grand theft after allegedly breaking into her grandma’s home and stealing $6,000 worth of jewels.


She may have a criminal record, but Strahan’s girlfriend can rock a bikini. The pair was spotted splashing around in St. Barts in March. The couple was inseparable while sipping cocktails.

Let the drama begin. It all started when Strahan released a statement that he would be leaving “Live” and joining “Good Morning America” full-time in September. Prior to the move, he appeared frequently on the morning show as a correspondent. However, the scandal could have been defused if ABC had just told his “Live” co-host, Kelly Ripa, about the shake-up. The morning after the announcement, Ripa was absent from “Live.”

“Kelly sees this as the ultimate betrayal,” a source told Page Six at the time. Another source confirmed that Ripa was having a “total meltdown” after being blindsided by the news.

In the days following the announcement, more and more information about Ripa and Strahan’s off-screen relationship was revealed. “They could not stand each other, and whenever they communicated off-camera, it was always through their reps,” an insider told us of the pair, who seemed to have the perfect on-air chemistry.

Strahan bailed on a charity gala he was scheduled to co-host, while Ripa was spotted leaving her apartment clutching a copy of the book “David and Goliath.” ABC and Strahan claimed that Ripa had already planned to take time off to celebrate her 20th anniversary with husband Mark Consuelos; however, Ripa sent an email to staff thanking them for giving her time to “process” the new information.

Ripa returned to “Live” on April 26 and openly discussed what had been going on behind the scenes.

“I am fairly certain that there are trained professional snipers with tranquilizer darts in case I drift too far off message,” she joked. “I needed a couple days to gather my thoughts. After 26 years with this company, I earned the right.” She said that over the past couple days, the situation opened doors to better communication, consideration and respect. She congratulated Strahan on his new position, saying she was “thrilled” and “proud” of him. That same day, ABC revealed Strahan would be leaving the show four months earlier than expected, making his last day May 13.

The dramatic week ended with an on-air dig from Ripa about his divorce.


Kelly and Michael continued to co-exist at the office and the pair even nabbed a Daytime Emmy for their show, but neither of them showed up at the ceremony in Los Angeles to claim the award.

On the bright side, things seemed to be going well for Strahan and his criminal girlfriend, who were spotted out on a date during the aftermath of the scandal.

Strahan co-hosted his last show on May 13 and after the show, sources told us that Ripa and Strahan had a private reconciliation. “It was all very positive,” the source told us of their talk, but even as they made up, the mood of the staff was “celebratory” after he left. Almost immediately, pictures of Strahan were taken down and replaced with solo shots of Ripa. One source compared it to “the first day of school.”

Strahan was seen toasting his departure with his new co-host Robin Roberts and things seemed to be calming down. He remained tight-lipped about everything that happened, not granting interviews to the press.

“I get the desire to move people to other places where they are needed. I get it,” Ripa said in May. “However, what nobody considered is there’s a whole other group of people that it really impacts, because we have to now find another great person. Which is fun but challenging.”

At the end of May, speculation about who would take over for Strahan was all anyone could talk about. Names from Anderson Cooper to Fred Savage were floating around.


In June, Strahan finally broke his silence. “I really haven’t missed it,” he told Chelsea Handler in his first interview post-“Live.” “But I loved it. Don’t get me wrong. I loved it. When you get a break, sometimes you kind of go, ‘Wow, I kind of needed it.’ I needed a break.”

His arrival at “Good Morning America” sparked a whole new set of rumors at ABC. Sources said that Lara Spencer might be leaving and that George Stephanopoulos would focus more on politics while Strahan took a lead anchor position.

In the beginning of July, it was revealed that part of Strahan’s deal at “GMA” forced him to drop any endorsements. ABC News staffers are forbidden from endorsement deals, which meant he was no longer able to promote things like Subway, Pizza Hut, Metamucil or anything else he’d done in the past. It also set in that he would be starting to cover more serious news and Strahan was a little bit nervous about the change.

“His background is football, not journalism,” a source told Page Six, adding that they would be easing him into the hard-hitting news.


By August, the dust had settled and the biggest news was still trying to find a replacement for Strahan on “Live.”

Just when things seemed to have blown over, Strahan did an interview with People and admitted he and Ripa were no longer friends. “At one point I think we were friends. I don’t know what happened at the end,” he said. “I wasn’t surprised by her reaction at all, but I can’t control somebody else’s actions.”

He was supposed to be on the cover of that week’s People magazine, but was booted to make room for Brangelina’s split.

ABC execs were less than thrilled about Strahan’s interview with the magazine. “They thought he was over it, and here he is rehashing it. It’s sort of obvious they wouldn’t be happy … Everyone thought he’d moved on,” a source told us.

By September, Ripa had gotten a promotion to executive producer on “Live.” We were told that Bob Iger smoothed things over by giving Ripa the new title.


Vanity Fair released their list of people who fell from grace in 2016 and Ben Sherwood, the president of Disney/ABC television group, got a special shout-out for how he handled Strahan’s exit from the show and the fact that Ripa was blindsided by the news.


Leave it to Andy Cohen to bring up sore subjects. Cohen, a longtime friend of Ripa, wrote in his new book that his remarks during the “Live” scandal hurt Strahan’s feelings. At the time, Cohen said he didn’t understand how Strahan could leave “the greatest job in TV to be one of five people” on “Good Morning America.”

Apparently in May, Cohen ran into Strahan. “Going into dinner I walked right into Michael Strahan, who said he can’t believe I did him that way, that he was so surprised I joined the pileup,” Cohen wrote, adding that they talked and “hugged it out” that night.


For now, it seems like the “Live” nightmare is finally over. Both parties seem to have moved on, but who knows what 2017 may hold.


Michael Strahan has been in headlines the past couple weeks for his abrupt exit from Live! With Kelly and Michael in order to move full-time to Good Morning America. So, who is Strahan dating right now? Get the rundown on Strahan, 44, and his girlfriend Kayla Quick, 27.

2. She Was Arrested as a Juvenile for Disorderly Conduct

3. Her Family Members Have Arrest Records

According to Radar, when Quick was 18 years old, she worked for a few months as a waitress at a Tamp strip club called Thee Dollhouse, where a source says she knew “how to hustle customers and could clear up to $2,000 a week.”

5. Michael Strahan Was Previously Engaged to Eddie Murphy’s Ex-Wife Nicole


Michael Strahan has gone through two divorces and was most recently engaged to Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole, but the two broke up in 2014. Murphy and Strahan started dating in 2009 and according to Fab Wags, Murphy is currently dating Nick Cannon. Strahan is a father of four with ex-wives Wanda Hutchins and Jean Muggli. During Strahan’s messy divorce from Jean Muggli, she accused Strahan of having a romantic relationship with a man.

He’s not a regular dad, he’s a cool dad! Michael Strahan invited his daughters to be by his side at the 2018 Kid’s Choice Sports Awards, and we can’t believe how grown up they look!

Michael Strahan, 46, earned some cool points with his daughters on July 19 when he took them for a night out to the 2018 Kid’s Choice Sports Awards. The 13-year-old twin sisters, Isabella and Sophia, looked thrilled to be at dad’s side for the award show in Los Angeles and were all smiles in pictures. The show, hosted by NBA star Chris Paul, also saw attendance from stars like Chloe Kim, Michael Phelps, and even Ciara.

On the ‘orange’ carpet,’ Isabella and Sophia wore matching outfits, each choosing to don navy crop tops paired white denim bottoms. Twinning for real! Dad kept it ultra casual in jeans and a collared shirt. Their appearance at the awards show was a rare one for Michael’s children, who usually keep a low profile. The former New York Giants player shares his twins with ex-wife Jean Muggli, and tries to give them as much of a normal life as possible, including a regular education. He told People, “During their school year I get on a plane, and I fly to see my kids.” “Whenever they get a break, they come to New York,” he added. It looks like this time around, Isabella and Sophia were the ones flying out to meet dad. Not bad for a school night!

Even after his football career, Michael has kept an impressive resume. GMA host, NFL Hall of Famer, Emmy winner, author, you name it. The star can also now add model to the list. Just this week, he was seen shooting the latest collection for his MSX and Collection by Michael Strahan clothing line. Perhaps, Michael has been keeping busy in an effort to combat rumors that he is incredibly jealous of fellow athlete Alex Rodriguez. According to RadarOnline, Strahan has been feeling threatened that the ex-Yankee player has been stealing his spotlight!


From the look of his beaming smile here with his family, we don’t think Michael seems to be jealous of much at all.

During Michael Strahan’s Pro Football Hall of Fame induction speech, the former New York Giants defensive end, tireless TV host and health and wellness advocate (he’s a spokesman for Meta, and he’s a big fan of the new products from the makers of Meta), told a story about being 13 years old, when his brothers would call him BOB, which meant “Booty on Back.” They ribbed him so much for being overweight that he went out and bought Jane Fonda workout tapes.

But no one’s teasing him now. Not only was Strahan named to the 2014 NFL Hall of Fame class, he also landed the September cover of Men’s Fitness, showing off a chiseled and lean frame that makes him think that he could still strap his pads on and take the field. Strahan says he actually weighs almost the same as he did during his playing days – “between 247 and 252 pounds” – but that the weight is more eventually distributed now.

Strahan has replaced much of his heavy-lifting training with more high-intensity cardio work and more bodyweight and functional training. It doesn’t hurt that his personal trainer also lives in the same building where he rents an apartment in New York, a couple blocks away from the GMA set.

His trainer, Latreal Mitchell, holds him to a simple set of rules, Strahan explains in his September cover story: Minimize sugar, dairy, and pasta; focus on a high-protein diet. Mitchell demands that Strahan adhere to her “80/20” plan, which means he eats clean 80% of the time.

“Don’t get me wrong, I eat sugar,” Strahan said, although he admitted that his tastes for sweets have changed. The Oreos he loved as a kid now taste like “a stale cookie with Crisco on top.”

Strahan retired from football at the top of his game, just after winning a Super Bowl. He successfully transitioned into one of the most coveted host chairs in television, the one left behind by the legendary Regis Philbin. Then he landed a spot on the TV analyst desk at Fox NFL Sunday. He changed his diet and training regime and says his body feels better than it did when he was player. In his Hall of Fame speech, Strahan called his rise to stardom “improbable.”

It’s hard to think that anything that involves Strahan is improbable anymore. Well, except for maybe a return to the field.

“In my head I think I’ve still got it,” he told writer Josh Dean in our September feature. “But I take one hit, man, and I know I’d probably be on the ground for an hour.”
