It was previously a NYC only show for a few years before it went national, but everyone acts like he was some big star for decades before that.

I will always hold a grudge against him because of it.

The show was owned by Disney and because it was an ABC NY show - many ABC affiliates picked up the show and aired after "Good Morning America" - to have a lead-in like that was really beneficial for the show taking off

In 1990 GMA finally regained the number 1 spot in the morning wars, so to have that lead in just increased Regis & Kathie Lee popularity

I knew Regis Philbin from seeing him as a host of this incredible, yet short-lived summer game show called "Almost Anything Goes" in 1975.

Basically the contestants were citizens of small towns (fewer than 5000 residents) who competed in huge teams in physical stunts against each other on a football field. They did a handful of episodes, but as a kid I thought it was so incredible, surely it would run forever! Lol, nope.

In addition to this comment, this is the reason why Good Morning America can't expand to 3 hours in the AM - the affiliates DO NOT want the third hour of GMA, preferring to keep "Live with Kelly & Ryan" They have told ABC if they expand GMA to a third hour, they WON'T carry the show

So ABC is stuck having the third hour of GMA at 1 PM, All My Children's former time-period.

He was rotten to his disabled son from his first marriage, who died in 2015.

"Regis Philbin‘s son, who overcame a severe disability to become a successful public affairs worker for the Pentagon, has died at the age of 49, The National ENQUIRER reported.

Danny Philbin, who was born with a spinal cord defect that led to the amputation of both his legs, had a strained relationship with his famous talk show host father until they reconciled six years ago — after The ENQUIRER published an appeal by the son’s then-wife to the TV star for financial help.

Before that, the U.S. Department of Defense honored Danny in 2002 for remaining on the job despite the flames burning near his office after a terrorist-flown airliner crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. “This bravery and dedication were not without cost, as he was hospitalized later for several days,” the citation read."

Although he worked on TV for decades, he didn't become nationally successful until he was paired with Kathie Lee on Live.

Before Live, he was popular in Los Angeles and San Diego hosting local talk shows, but he also was the butt of jokes about D-list celebrities.

by Anonymousreply 6407/25/2020

He was a strange man--so high strung, and so incredibly self-centered. He would begin every show by telling you at some length as to what the weather was like that day in New York City; but of course if you didn't live in NYC (which was most of the audience), you wouldn't give a shit (the show was always only indoors).

He also didn't have a lot of self-awareness. He said he was really shocked when he would see Dana Carvery imitate him on SNL--he said he had no idea he came across as so obnoxious and loud and shouty. How could you not know that about yourself well into late middle-age?

I did kind of like him all the same. He had a real rapport with Kathie Lee she never had with anyone else--she always seemed so phony with Hoda Kotb (who always seemed to deserve better).

by Anonymousreply 6507/25/2020

I thin k the point was that when he started doing "Live!" Regis was well known in NY (to the comedy crowd from the 60s) and in LA and San Diego (because he did local shows there for so long). He was not known to the rest of the country very well at all, but the people in the NY/LA entertainment circuit didn't care because THEY knew him.

His wife Joy got him to relax more when she would sub for Kathie Lee. I always thought it would have been better had they fired Kathie Lee and let her co-host the show--she wasn't funny or quirky, the way Kathie Lee was, but she was a much more relaxed presence.

After the show Kathie disappeared immediately. Regis hung around surrounded by a large bunch of old ladies adoring him. He seemed to be pleasant to them. I thought he earned his paycheck.

Ripa signing Secreast's name is classless and gross. Ryan Seacrest has nothing to do with Regis Philbin.

Regis made Ripa and gave her the opportunity of a lifetime for her and her family. She ought to be ashamed of herself. If she were going to mention "We" and sign it with another person, then it should have been Ripa and her husband, Mark, to show their gratitude.

If Seacrest wanted to send his own condolences, then that's what he should have done. In this instance, the message should have been from Ripa alone or Ripa and her husband--not Seacrest.

I smile knowing somewhere in Heaven, at this very moment, he’s making someone laugh. It brings me great comfort knowing that he had a personal relationship with his Lord that brought him great peace. I send all the love in my heart to Joy, to his children, to the rest of his family and to the innumerable people he touched over his legendary life. There has never been anyone like him.

The View's statement is very nicely done. Proper.

R13... His appeal, I think (and not to me, I always found him too shouty) but it was sort of a Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin thing... bland really, friendly in his averageness, he was more regular person than elbow rubbing celebrity, even though he was an elbow rubbing celebrity. He wasn't self conscious at all (like Ripa) and he wasn't actually trying that hard... he had this quality of I'm gonna do this whether you like it nor not, without being a jerk about it (like Ellen.) Rosie had the same kind of quality until it all went wrong. If she'd kept it together, I'd bet her show would still be on the air.

It took a while for Regis to hit his stride as a big, successful national name after not really connecting in the 1960s. But when the timing was right for him, he rose to the top. He did, he was the heart and soul of LIVE. So chatty, funny, dishy, abrupt, silly and kind. He always knew just how to hit the right tone. It was a treat to watch him each morning. I remember him with Sarah Purcell on the West Coast too. They were fun together.

I loved him with Kathie Lee. Regis and Kelly were okay; he was fine; she was replaceable.

I loved his wife, Joy, too. Witty, charming, lovely woman and an appealing TV presence in her own right.

We need more people like Regis on TV. Not people like Ripa and Seacrest. More people like Regis, Merv Griffin, etc. TV chat is the perfect for for them .

Howard Stern Stirs up 'Live With Kelly and Ryan' Drama With Hot Take on Regis Philbin's Ousting

"Kelly I don’t think likes Regis. That’s the thing. They have a war."

“I think it is true, and I think she would say that it’s true,” Stern responded after Kimmel countered saying he doesn't believe there is a feud. “They don’t talk or anything as far as I know. I thought it was an issue where Kelly felt that she should’ve been told by Regis that he was leaving the show.”

All three on the show mentioned how Philbin "didn't leave on his own accord."

“I think he would’ve liked to at least be associated in some way with the show and remind people that he’s the guy who started that whole thing," Stern said

Ripa's statement did seem a little...'corporate'

But I can see WHY Live forced him out. If they didn't effect a change, then one would have been forced on them.

Imagine if he'd stayed and on Monday, what were they going to do? Sure, they can get through a few weeks, but what about finding a long term replacement?

Sadly, it's a business and the show wanted to control the transition.

I don't think Pippa got him off the show; it was more of a corporate/producer decision.

After all, Kelly said it herself on this morning’s show that the “core four” women surrounding Regis were his wife, Joy, their two daughters and Kathi Lee. It would have been a fitting tribute.

I presume Kathie Lee gave TODAY the exclusive. It's always business.

More like Kathie Lee knew the truth of what Kelly and Gellman did in forcing Regis out and she may be Christian, but she can still be a Christian Bitch and hold a grudge.

If Kelly weren’t such a trashy skank, she would have called Regis every so often or taken him to lunch from time to time, much as we do with parents and grandparents. Who cares if they are annoying? You can get through a lunch a couple of times a year.

And they no longer worked together after Regis retired, either. It would have been the decent thing to stay in touch.

It’s possible Kelly tried to stay in touch and was rebuffed by Regis, I suppose. But he seemed awfully hurt over the years when discussing Kelly’s behavior after he retired.

Kelly &Ryan had a nice tribute show this morning. It all seemed genuine to me,and all the right things were said and touched on.

This board — or at least a few people who post about Ripa endlessly — are so hard on her it’s unreal, and I’ll never get it. If she says nothing, she’s a cold bitch. If she looks emotional, she’s a lying botoxed whore.

There is no evidence that Regis was pushed out by LIVE, and in fact, Philbin said many times that Kelly was upset she wasn’t aware of him leaving. I think they probably asked him to take a pay cut and Regis played hardball — and lost. I think he gave them an ultimatum and decided to leave.

Were Regis and Kelly as close as he and Kathie Lee? Of course not, and Ripa said often that Regis didn’t talk to her before the show. At all. I think Regis was a great tv personality, but I don’t think he was a saint, either.

by Anonymousreply 30507/27/2020

Yeah considering what he did to his own son I think it's fair to say that Kelly is no worse than him. However thanks to this thread I'm looking up videos and pics of Kelly and found some of her from a show called Dance Party and OMG. If I knew how to link a pic I would show it because it's shocking how much heavier she was when she was young. Borderline fat almost and man did she love the camera. Totally vain and narcissistic woman.

Good special on Regis, and Kelly came out looking really good.

Honestly, I think Regis had a lot more sour relationships in his life than Ripa had, and I’ve never heard of Kelly having family problems, either.

On the special, the clips shown of Jimmy Kimmel’s final interview with Regis last year showed a Regis who was only half there. He never said Jimmy’s name, and his responses were vague and generic — not typical Regis at all.

by Anonymousreply 32907/29/2020

R329 it does seem like any time a former partner of his went on with her life he held a grudge. Mary Hart said something to that effect when she went on to ET. Like what was she supposed to do sit around and wait for him? I still love him as a TV personality though.

Kelly’s reaction could well be totally fake but I don’t think it “looks fake” — I think she’s coming across quite well (aside from the initial IG post). She’s neither over nor under doing it.

The special was good. He’ll certainly be missed.

by Anonymousreply 33007/29/2020

By spinning a fake story that Kelly was hurt and devastated by Regis' departure from the show - she seeks to disguise the fact that she was the driving force behind getting rid of him. She'd rather be seen as the victim instead of the persecutor. Her entire life must be a complete web of bullshit.

I loved Regis but I think he could be kind of mean on air to Kelly and Gelman at times. No doubt Kelly's initial sunny persona with him changed and she occasionally appeared snippy and defensive on the air.

This isn't meant to be a diss to her but when you starve yourself day after day it does affect your mood. As she got slimmer and slimmer that friendly demeanor started to morph into something else. She bristled at things that she earlier would have laughed off. She hardened. Their dynamic shifted. She was no longer his sweet, happy to be there sidekick. She came into her own and perhaps he resented it and her.

When Clay Aiken abused her verbally on air and grabbed her face while conducting an interview and she recounted the story to Regis a few days later it seemed like he was more on Clay's side than hers. "He's a nice boy!"

Too bad they couldn't have worked out their differences but that's life. Sometimes you just can't get along with people no matter how hard you try. Or think you are trying.
