It was reported on Thursday that Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy were spotted having lunch together at the South Beverly Grill in Beverly Hills after breaking their engagement last month. First, it was reported that it was a strain of their relationship with Nicole in California with her reality show and Michael in New York being a co-host on "Live with Kelly and Michael" as well as a part-time co-host on "Good Morning America." It was said that with Nicole living in California with her children, she spent just one week in four with her fiancé in New York.
After that report went public, other rumors surrounded the pair. For instance, the news went out that Nicole was cheating on Michael. Then we heard that Nicole accused Michael of cheating on her saying she had proof. She went public about the breakup the day before Michael was to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
By seeing Michael and Nicole having lunch together, people are speculating that there might be the possibility of a reconciliation, and the two of them can reverse their decision to split and get back together
A source told E! Online, that's not the case at all saying, "They had lunch. They are on friendly terms. No big deal."
The sighting of the pair comes after the break up of a seven-year relationship and a five-year engagement. So, surely they have things to still talk about. People might be reading too much into the sighting even though Nicole had her arm linked with Michael's as they strolled along together.
After the breakup, Nicole, 46, spoke about Michael on the same day she was seen moving her belongings out of a storage facility perhaps because she has moved out of the house she had been living in with Michael, 42. She commented that she and Michael will always be friends.
Actually, both Michael and Nicole have been seen out and about and going their separate ways after their split.
