Talk-show host Kelly Ripa and the creator-producer of the "The Bachelor" are feuding. Kelly fired the first shot on May 14 when she said of the hit ABC franchise, "It disgusts me." While speaking to the audience on "Live With Kelly and Ryan," she said she "can't stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how I feel, ladies -- we are too special to be arguing over a guy. Having said that, all of you women watch that gross, gross show." Enter Mike Fleiss, who tweeted, "Easy, @KellyRipa … #TheBachelor franchise pays your salary!" Franchise host Chris Harrison also tweeted, writing, "Look out #BachelorNation @KellyRipa is coming after you and your 'disgusting' Monday night habit." To make things more awkward, Kelly didn't back down from her comments when current "The Bachelorette" star Hannah Brown was a guest on "Live" days later.
