Kelly Ripa told her staff in an email sent Friday that she will be back to host “Live With Kelly and Michael” this Tuesday, multiple sources are reporting.

In the email, Ripa, who has been absent from the show since news broke on April 19 that her co-host Michael Strahan was leaving to join ABC’s “Good Morning America” full time, wrote, "We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning," the New York Times reported.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Ripa was allegedly upset that she was not informed that Strahan was departing the show until shortly before it was announced to the press.

Ripa also thanked her staff in the email, according to Entertainment Weekly, for giving her "time to process this new information."
