For almost a quarter of a century, Regis Philbin hosted Live with Regis & Kathie Lee and then Live with Regis & Kelly, but in 2011 he decided to retire from the show. Even though he made the show what it is, he has not been asked to return, even for one day, ever since he left the talk show over 5 years ago.
On his Ora TV show his old friend Larry King asked him, why has not been asked back. Philbin gave his theory why, “She got very offended when I left. She thought I was leaving because of her.” Is that why he left? Here’s his truth, “I was leaving because I was getting older and that wasn’t right for me anymore.”
It seems like Kelly Ripa makes her co-hosts leaving all about her, but maybe it is about them instead. Regis is getting older and had some health problems before his departure, so you can’t blame him from stepping away for the job to get some much needed me time. You also can’t blame Michael Strahan for wanting more with Good Morning America. I bet you if Kelly Ripa was offered something great, she would leave Live with too and in that case it would be all about her.
Now when it comes to Live with, I think they should have Regis fill in every now again because fans of that should would love to see his mug on it. That is why they love when he does the 4th hour of Today with his other co-host Kathie Lee Gifford, who didn’t leave the show because of him. Don’t you think they should have him back on Live with?
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jared Leto gave a Jimmy Fallon a live snake in a box. Kathie Lee Gifford thought that was such a great idea that she decided to give Regis Philbin the same thing on Kathie Lee and Hoda today.
Although there was one slight difference, her snake was fake but the scare was still real enough for The Reeg.
About time, men are finally having the same reaction women have when they unzip a man’s pants and find out his trouser snake is the size of a Boa Constrictor!
Hoda Kotb and Regis Philbin were photographed in near kiss, so do they have something to tell us? Not while Kathie Lee Gifford is alive. But it would be fun if there was just for her reaction to it.
So what’s going on? The two of them took part in the Twizzler Challenge on Today with Hoda and Kathie Lee, and because of that we got this perfect photo.
Ever since Regis Philbin stopped doing Live with Regis and Kelly, we haven’t seen that much of him. Well, yesterday he came out of hiding on Jimmy Kimmel Live and he really let himself go. I mean, he didn’t get fat; but he has grown his hair out and also a long scraggly beard. I guess if you are not on television everyday, you don’t have to get a haircut or shave and you can look like the hermit you have become.
Now, having said all of that, Regis was just wearing a wig and fake beard to play Gd on the ABC late night talk show. This is a good example where writing a lie is so much better than telling the truth.
Both Regis Philbin and Michael Strahan attended the 2013 Fox Sports Media Group Upfront After Party yesterday and looks the Kelly Ripa’s new co-star is trying to kill her old one. The former-football player got Reeg’s job, what more does he want?
Of course it is just two men playing around, but it was too cool of a picture not the share!
BTW is it wrong that I kind of wish it was Strahan and Philbin hosting the morning talk show together instead of The Brothers actor and Ripa?
