Michael left Live! after four seasons on the show in April to instead join the cast of Good Morning America. Kelly was reportedly not forewarned about her costar's departure and took time off to "gather [her] thoughts" following his announcement.
"I wasn't surprised by her reaction at all, but I can't control somebody else's actions. I was there four years, and it's about more than just being in front of the camera," Michael told People.
