Murphy, Strahan call off engagement


Murphy and Strahan call off their engagement one day before Strahan is to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Rep:

It’s all about 2,475 air miles — he lives in NYC and she’s in L.A. and it’s just too difficult.  It’s especially hard because they’re both real busy.

According to sources the couple had actually broken off their engagement several weeks ago, but there was no agreement to announce the separation before his induction.

Elle Magazine interview

Strahan gives interview to Elle about being known for his gap tooth smile and if he was okay with it.

I was really close to closing it up. I was at the dentist having him do mock-ups. I thought about it, man. I was in my twenties. I was playing with the Giants. There’s so much pressure to be perfect. You can fix everything now. For me, I made the conscious effort to say “This is who I am.” I’m not perfect. I don’t want to try to be perfect. At this point, I don’t think my kids would recognize me without it. They’d be like, “Who is this stranger in the house? Call 911!”

Michael Strahan interview

Seacrest interviews Strahan during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about working with Kelly Ripa on Live! with Kelly and Michael.

It was over a year ago when I went on to co-host. I had met Kelly a long time ago, years ago. But being on the show was the first time I really got to interact with her. Instantly, she is so easy to get along with for everybody. She had 59 total guest hosts come on that show over the last nine months, which is hard to change up and really guide 59 people through the show. She had a connection with everybody. Fortunate for me ours seemed to come through.

Retires from NFL


Strahan retires after a 15 year career in the NFL. On whether or not he will change his mind:

When you still know you can do something, but you’re choosing not to do it, you still have those mornings where you wake up and have the feeling. I still get that. But I just know that it’s not in my best interests to do it anymore. So I just have to get over that. There’s not going to be a chance of all of a sudden I’m running out of the tunnel with my uniform on. It’s not going to happen.
