Kelly Ripa confirmed in a staff letter that she'll be back in her Live! seat tomorrow morning — but will she sabotage co-host Michael Strahan and producers in an on-air attack?
The 45-year-old morning hostess— who as RadarOnline.com has reported, was enraged when Strahan "blindsided" her by leaving the ABC talk show for Good Morning America— could "go rogue" on live TV, execs reportedly fear.
"She 'might do an Ann Curry' and turn on her co-anchor," a source told Page Six, referring to Ann Curry and Matt Lauer's infamous feud at the Today show in 2012. "There clearly would be tension between her and Michael."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ripa is expected to address the drama on air, but will "offer an olive branch" to Strahan, 44.
The normally bubbly star boycotted her own show after finding out just moments before the public on April 19 that Strahan would be ditching Live! for GMA beginning in September.
"There has been a total Ripa meltdown," a source told Page Six last week.
