His name? Michael Strahan.
During one of the many promotional tours for the highly anticipated movie, the star Channing Tatum stopped in at Live with Kelly where her guest co-host of the day was Strahan.
During the interview with everyone’s current heartthrob, Michael Strahan got a little jealous of all the attention of the movie calling himself “the first Magic Mike” and proceeded to rip off his pants and start dry humping the ground while stripper music(?) plays in the background.
It didn’t stop there.
Strahan continues to dance by getting up off the floor and heading straight to Kelly to do a little booty shakin’ then makes a failed attempt to take a split to the ground.
It was said Kelly and Channing had no knowledge prior of Strahan’s dance but both were good sports as after the initial look of shock subsided, Kelly joined in dancing with Strahan while Channing clapped, cheered and being the true businessman he is, asked the audience for dollar bills to hand off to Strahan.
All in all it was a hell of a surprise by Strahan and huge props should be given to Kelly and Channing for going along with it. I doubt some of Kelly’s other past sports co-hosts would have received the same response Strahan got, or been willing to do a striptease on national television.
Watch the video below to see Strahan strip for Kelly Ripa and Channing Tatum...
I can understand why Simmons had to withdraw his vote. But this is completely innocent in my estimation. Simmons prides himself on being the biggest NBA fan in the world. He's not going to vote for LeBron just because he bet on him six months ago. He bet on LeBron because he's the best all-around player in the league. He voted for LeBron because . . . wait for it . . . he was the best all-around player in the league. Simmons' vote won't matter, because BronBron will win the award handily.
Matt your right there is no way that this hasn't happened before and a lot worse! If referees are running or having a big(hell any) role in betting rings you can bet that people who are just covering the game or in some smaller capacity are using inside info on injuries or what have you to bet on all sorts of things. There's a reason there will never be a NBA team in Vegas!
