Feb 16, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Regis Philbin fanned the flames of gossip that tend to surround Kelly Ripa’s morning show “Live with Kelly,” where Philbin and Ripa worked together for 10 years back when the show was called “Live with Regis and Kelly.”

Philbin revealed during an interview Tuesday on “Larry King Now” that his relationship with Ripa has been strained since Philbin exited the show in 2011.

“Asked by King if he keeps in touch with Ripa, Philbin responded, ‘Not really, no,’” People reports, adding: “Despite being the face of the talk show for 28 years, Philbin, 85, revealed that he has not been asked back since leaving: ‘Never once did they ask me to go back.’”

Philbin said during the interview: “She got very offended when I left. She thought I was leaving because of her. … I was leaving because I was getting older and it wasn’t right for me anymore.”

Philbin said he has not heard from Ripa since he left the show.


  1. She’s a freaking narcissist man…her show sucks now.

  2. ABC Daytime – you want ratings?
    Bring back Reg to guest co-host
    No Brainer

  3. Two guys well past their prime moaning about their lives while counting their cash. I don’t feel too sorry for them. Ripa is a narcissist? How about these two that can’t leave the air and retire to their mansions.

  4. Isn’t guilty cleric redundant?

  5. Kelly is narcissistic!!!!!!! Count how many times she says me and I in one show.

  6. Kelly Ripa is lucky she has a patient ass kisser like Ryan Seacrest to pad her ego every morning. She is truly a legend in her ” Own mind”! Dearest is great!

  7. Kelly is a narcissist… Even during the games when she is asking questions to the contestants she will bring it back to something she did. It is always about her. Good thing she has Ryan who will put up with that.
