Late Night Highlight: Jimmy Fallon and Kelly Ripa introduce 'Sauna Shorts' -- VIDEO

Today in This Exists: Sauna Shorts, a newfangled post-workout relaxer/weight loss contraption “lined with a silicone heating element that adjusts from 95° F to 167° F to induce perspiration and increase blood flow to help reduce inflammation of joints and help soothe tense, sore muscles.”

They also look mighty fetching when worn by Jimmy Fallon and Kelly Ripa, who donned the sweat-inducing pants on Fallon’s show last night. Check out the moment in our highlights video below. Warning: The word “crotch” comes up early and often.

Michelle Obama talks guilty pleasures on 'Live! With Kelly and Michael'

Funnily enough, the First Lady’s appearance on Live! this morning wasn’t quite as serious as her husband’s appearance on The Daily Show last night. In the segment, which was taped Thursday, hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan questioned Obama about everything from what she carries in her purse to her husband’s underwear — when asked whether she prefers the president to wear boxers or briefs, Obama jokingly answered, “None of the above.”

There was some substance to the chat, though. Obama shared the anxiety she feels watching her husband participate in presidential debates — “I compared it to the Olympic parents watching their kids on that balance beam,” she said. Ripa asked whether Obama has ever tried to help the president with answers during debates; Obama responded, “They really caution you to be quiet and I try to follow the rules so I don’t get in trouble.”

But hey — back to the fun stuff!  READ FULL STORY

Kelly Ripa introduces new 'Live!' cohost Michael Strahan -- VIDEO

Earlier this morning, Kelly Ripa bid adieu to a revolving door of temporary co-hosts — and finally introduced gap-toothed ex-New York Giant Michael Strahan as her new permanent partner in crime. For anyone who’s been following Ripa’s host search, the announcement wasn’t a surprise. But even so, Kelly’s audience reacted to her news as though they’d just been gifted brand-new cars — or at least some Vaseline. See them scream in the video below.

Paul Wesley's 'Burt Reynolds volleyball' movie: Watch the trailer!

The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley was a guest on Live! with Kelly this morning, and he asked Ripa’s cohost, D.L. Hughley, if he remembered him. He didn’t. Wesley said he had “three phenomenal words” that might help: “Burt Reynolds volleyball.” That did it! They costarred in the 2006 film Cloud 9, which, judging from the trailer embedded below, was about Burt Reynolds turning strippers into beach volleyball players. “We were up for Best Picture,” joked Wesley, who appears to have played the ladies’ frequently shirtless trainer.  READ FULL STORY

Joel McHale addresses Chevy Chase 'Community' conflict on 'Live! With Kelly'

For a master class in how to handle a sensitive issue, I submit to you Joel McHale, host of The Soup and leading lad of NBC’s Community, which as you probably know is in the midst of a major he-said-he-said dramatic debacle between creator Dan Harmon and costar Chevy Chase.

During a stint as Kelly Ripa’s co-host on Live! With Kelly, McHale was asked to address the feud, and he hedged like a pro. (Watch the video here!) “It was over voice mails, so there’s been some awesome recorded messages from Chevy,” said McHale, who has been asked whether the dispute is real. “It’s impossible because there’s no way Chevy could figure out voice mail.” Charming, yes, but he doesn’t answer the question — flawless evasive joking!
