Kelly Ripa may have ended her Bachelor Nation feud Thursday morning - or at least reached a ceasefire - but no one told her network mate Ellen Pompeo! Fleiss urged Ripa to take it easy as ABC houses both "Live With Kelly and Ryan" and "The Bachelor" franchise and "pays [her] salary".

"Okay [Mike Fleiss], that's some handle bro!" "Also we don't attack successful women on our network and men certainly can not take credit for their success".

The "savage" Pompeo also said, "don't get be started on your show", adding "Bachelor soooooo white".

It all started on Tuesday when Kelly had a bit of a rough reaction to finding out new Bachelorette Hannah Brown would be a guest on Live with Kelly and Ryan. "Do these guys really want to bring attention to the fact that people should stop and look more closely at the completely outdated misogynistic nature of this show and its offensive premise of demeaning its participants?" the insider asked.

"I am very against women fighting over a guy".

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. "It disgusts me", the 48-year-old told the audience.

She said: 'You guys know how I feel about the show ... it disgusts me. I don't believe in it. "You blink twice, I will get you out of here". "But, being a part of the show, it's not women fighting against each other". "Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive".

'I couldn't stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion, ' she continued, referring to the show and its predecessor The Bachelor.

Mike Fleiss, creator of the show, took to Twitter to defend it.

"When you have a group of 30 people together, there's gonna be people who don't like each other". The show's creator, Fleiss, joined in with his comment about Ripa's salary being paid for by the success of the reality series.

The source went on to point out, "Kelly has always slammed Bachelor/Bachelorette in the past with way worse comments, so why engage her now?"

Season 15 of The Bachelorette kicked off on Monday night and was a record low for the franchise, with the episode being down seven percent for the 18 to 49 age range, and down 15 percent from last year's summer premiere.

It looks like the heavyweights of three different ABC shows are still going at it.
