ABC has quite the feud brewing under its own roof.

“Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo came to Kelly Ripa’s defense on Thursday after Ripa’s comments about “The Bachelor” on “Live With Kelly and Ryan” sparked a Twitter feud with the creator of the franchise, Mike Fleiss. On Thursday’s episode of the talk show, Hannah Brown, the woman at the center of the current season of “The Bachelorette,” also offered her thoughts on the situation.

On the May 14 edition of “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” Ripa shared her opinion on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” franchise after co-host Ryan Seacrest revealed that Brown would be coming to their set on Thursday. Ripa took a stand against the shows, saying that they “disgust” her. She then called the audience out for watching the “gross, gross show.”

North Korea slams 'foolish and dangerous' Pompeo

North Korea slams 'foolish and dangerous' Pompeo A senior North Korean official on Tuesday accused US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of having "foolish and dangerous ideas", and warned Washington of an "unwanted outcome" if it does not adjust its stance on economic sanctions. On Tuesday, North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said Pompeo's comments were "foolish and dangerous ideas that imply overthrowing our system with military means". "Our resolution on denuclearisation remains intact and we will do so when time is right," she said, in comments cited by North Korea's official KCNA news service. "But it will only be possible when the US revises and reshapes its current calculation.

“You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy,” Ripa said.

Fleiss and “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison both took to Twitter in response. Fleiss urged Ripa to take it easy as ABC houses both “Live With Kelly and Ryan” and “The Bachelor” franchise and “pays [her] salary.”

Likewise, Harrison tweeted “Look out #BachelorNation @KellyRipa is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Another high-profile talent at ABC, Pompeo, swooped in via Twitter with a counterargument. The actress called Fleiss out for taking credit for a woman’s success, saying “The Bachelor” series does not pay Ripa’s salary and threatened to add her own thoughts about the reality dating show.

On Thursday’s edition of “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” Brown weighed in on the situation, saying she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind and empowered her. Ripa maintained her stance.

Hours after the Live With Kelly and Ryan cohost admitted that she feels disgusted by The Bachelorette, two of the show’s most prominent figures fired back. Chris Harrison, who has hosted The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for well over a decade, shared Us Weekly’s article about the situation via Twitter on Tuesday, May 14, and wrote, “Look out #BachelorNation ⁦@KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.” Bachelor Nation creator, Mike Fleiss, also used social media to express his opinions on the 48-year-old talk show host’s criticism.

“Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other,” Brown said. “Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”
