Cooper and Kelly

The rumors that Anderson Cooper will replace Michael Strahan on ABC's "Live" continue to spread. 

Word is that "Live" co-host Kelly Ripa is set on Coop and wants him to be the one. The show continues to have "guest hosts" fill in ever since Ripa threw a hissy fit and Strahan left the show earlier than it was expected. 

ABC announced the guest "co-hosts" for the week of June 20-24th. While actor John Leguizamo, singer Josh Groban and actor Jussie Smollett will get one day each. Anderson Cooper will be on two days that week.

Coop will host on June 22nd and the 23rd.

The rumor mill just kicked into overdrive.
