Kelly Ripa Stopped Speaking to Regis Philbin When He Retired


During a recent appearance on Larry King Now, legendary talk show host Regis Philbin admitted that Kelly Ripa hasn’t spoken to him since he retired six years ago from Live! The pair hosted the show together from 2001-2011.

“She got very offended when I left. She thought I was leaving because of her,” Philbin, 85, explained. “I was leaving because I was getting older, and it wasn’t right for me anymore.”

Philbin further revealed he has never been invited back to the show he made famous, though he spent 28 successful years on set.

“There are times when I really miss it, and wish I’d never stopped,” Philbin admitted.
