Michael Strahan may have just signed on for the job of a lifetime as Live! co-host, but the former NFL player is also lending his football insight to Fox NFL Sunday on the weekends. The Insider's Kevin Frazier caught up with Strahan on NFL Sunday's set to see how he was holding up after nearly a month on Live!.
"I love being here with the guys and during the week I love hanging out with Kelly, so I have the best of both worlds," said Strahan, who played 15 seasons with the New York Giants.
Along with his exciting new morning show gig with Kelly Ripa comes a storm of media attention. While media scrutiny can get on celebrities' nerves, Strahan says he's not bothered by it, and was carefree about a recent Saturday Night Live that mocked him.
"You don't get upset. You ask, 'O.K., that's cool. Do it more," he said, then adding his own joke about Jay Pharoah, who portrayed him in the SNL skit. "They need to put him in a muscle suit. I'm not that thin."
