Kelly Ripa was on leave so supermodel Kate Upton co-hosted Friday morning's Live with Kelly and Michael.
Former NFL player and co-host Michael Strahan started off by asking her why she went in the middle of the day to Starbucks wearing nothing but a robe. This was a howler and made the audience laugh their heads off.
Then the question of Kate being originally a New York Yankee’s fan and yet sleeping with the enemy came up. “I used to be a really big Yankees fan, but I’m actually sleeping with the enemy,” Upton told Strahan.
Kate said that she had appeared at the baseball game wearing a Detroit Tigers hat in order to buck up her fiancé Justin Verlander who was on that team.But then she was informed that she could not wear that sort of gear in the presence of the New York Yankees.
“My boyfriend plays for the Tigers. I had to pick a side,” Upton said. “And I felt it too, when I walked in. The Yankees told me, ‘You’re not allowed to wear a Tigers hat. You’re not allowed to wear any Tigers gear.’ It’s like a bad breakup.”
Meanwhile, she revealed that her fiancé told her how he always liked to be in an angry mood when playing so he could put his best efforts into the game.
“He actually told me ‘I like to be angry before I pitch.’ He didn’t tell me before, so he’d seem like he was in a bad mood before he pitched, so I’d be like joke, joke, joke, joke, joke, trying to cheer him up,” said Kate, 22. “And then he got mad at me, he was like, ‘Stop making me laugh, I’m trying to be angry.’”
So Kate decided to kill two birds with one stone and wore a New York Yankees cap instead to the game and thus satisfied the Yankees as well as her fiancé who naturally got angry.
“I went straight to wear a Yankees cap,” Kate said. “He always says anytime we’re fighting I wear a Yankees hat. And when we’re getting along I’m wearing a Detroit hat.”
On the other hand, Kate and Michael Strahan’s conversation was interrupted during its coverage by a breaking news bulletin that announced that President Obama was sending bomber airplanes to the Middle East to carpet bomb the remnants of ISIS which was a terrorist group wreaking havoc in the region.
This provoked quite a few reactions from people on the social online sites who either found the interruption to be ludicrous or just didn’t get what sort of mismatched news this was. The reason was that the two pieces of media story were in opposition to each other in their content.
On the one hand Strahan was talking to Kate about her lack of clothes and on the other hand you have such a serious topic such as the bombing of terrorists. It’s a strange, mad and crazy world we live in, indeed!
