McHale -- who hosted the CFDA Awards on Monday night -- noted that he hadn't seen Ripa since he introduced her during her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony last October. In reference to her star on Hollywood Boulevard, McHale asked the 45-year-old TV personality, "Is it weird to think people are walking on top of you right now?" Ripa responded, "No, I've gotten used to that."
Jimmy Kimmel was Ripa's first guest co-host following Strahan's exit, and also made light of the situation. Ripa pointed out that Kimmel was also her first guest co-host when Regis Philbin left the ABC show in 2011. "I'm like the ex-boyfriend you go back to for sex after you break up with your husband," the late-night host joked.
In addition, Kimmel brought along a wheel for Ripa to spin so that she could choose from seven possible co-hosts to replace Strahan. Check it out:
