Over at Live! Ryan was none too pleased that he kept playing a secondary role to daytime television diva Kelly Ripa, and that’s why he wanted out.

One source close to the situation even told The National Enquirer, “Ryan had it with being Kelly’s second banana. He sees Good Morning America as the perfect vehicle for him to be center state again.”

Not only that, but Ryan also feels like it was long overdue for him to leave Live!. The insider added, “Ryan felt as if Kelly was treating him like her kid in front of the cameras and he didn’t like that one bit.

Doing the same thing would make it that much sweeter for him!”

    KELLY IS DISCUSSING, OBNOXIOUS!! I can’t stand her !! She did the same to Regis, hogging the stage. always talking over him. I don’t C how Ryan or Strahan tolerated her for more than one day !! They both appear to be kind, easy going men. I guess her husband can’t “WALK OUT ON HER “. Why not just cancel her show, refuse to re-new her contract ????
