GOOD Morning America star Ginger Zee has admitted she was surprised by her colleague’s revelation.
Gio Benitez revealed a little-known fact after telling fans he and Rhiannon host Ally this week at GMA3.
He said: “Rhiannon is the first person I hosted a show with in Miami 11 years ago. Now we can do it again.”
Rhiannon, who wore a bright red cable-knit sweater, joked, “It’s the sequel!”
Zee, who was absent from Monday’s episode of GMA, admitted she wasn’t aware.
She posted in the comments section: “Entertaining story. Had no idea and love it.”
Rebecca Jarvis, who recently filled in for Michael Strahan at the New York studios, said she loved the fact too.
Rhiannon posted three love hearts as she responded to the backstage clip with the hosts.
Rhiannon starred on GMA3 for weeks after Amy Robach was pulled off the air when rumors of her alleged affair with TJ Holmes surfaced late last year.
Holmes was also sidelined and replaced by DeMarco Morgan. But this week, Benitez is co-hosting the show.
