The Live! television marriage between Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, that lasted more than 10 years, may have been made for TV and not much else.
On Thursday, in a red carpet interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly Ripa revealed that she has lost touch with Regis!
A reporter ask Kelly what qualities Regis had in common with her new co-host Michael Strahan, to which she replied, “Well they’re both incredible storytellers. They are both fiercely competitive and they’re both incredible football players.”
Ripa and Strahan are on the cover of the latest issue of THR representing two of the ‘35 Most Powerful People in Media‘.
When Kelly was asked whether she has kept in touch with Regis, who is now 81, Kelly said simply, “I haven’t seen him, no.”
