Michael Strahan irked ABC daytime execs with his new People cover story.

“They are annoyed at him for mentioning Kelly Ripa in his interview. Big surprise there,” said a source. “They thought he was over it, and here he is rehashing it. It’s sort of obvious they wouldn’t be happy . . . Everyone thought he’d moved on.”

Strahan told the mag he’s no longer friends with Ripa after his move from “Live” to “Good Morning America.” “At one point I think we were friends. I don’t know what happened at the end,” he said. An ABC rep dismissed it as “old gossip.”

Strahan’s cover was short-lived after People rushed to print a big Brangelina divorce story days after Strahan’s issue hit stands.
