As reported by Love B. Scott via Page Six, Michael Strahan sat down with Chelsea Handler for his first interview since leaving the highly-rated daytime talk show and he didn’t hold anything back. Telling Handler during an upcoming episode of her Netflix show, “I really haven’t missed it,” he said. “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.”

In case you may have forgotten, Strahan departed his co-hosting gig at Live back in May amidst highly-publicized controversy. He abruptly announced he would be joining Good Morning America full-time. The news caused co-host Kelly Ripa to immediately take time off after she learned of it only minutes before the rest of the world.


However that wasn’t the only thing that Strahan was in the mood to discuss as he gave a bit of insight into to hosting the revamped version of The $100,000 Pyramid which airs later this summer. He also has a men’s clothing line in the works featuring his namesake.


Here’s wishing Michael Strahan much success in all of his future endeavors, in front of the camera and beyond.
