Regis' Bang Bang Heart Surgery

Regis' Bang Bang Heart Surgery

Regis Philbin announced that he will have triple bypass heart bypass surgery later this week.

The 75-year-old told his Live With Regis and Kelly audience on Monday’s show: “Well, listen, I gotta tell you something. … I had been feeling chest pains, you know, and, uh, shortness of breath and all those little symptoms that you hear about.”

Regis hoped to have angioplasty instead because “you know, you get in — bang, bang, bang — they blow it open and you leave the next day. But there’s some plaque in some arteries and I’ve got to get it cleaned out.”

Co-host Kelly Ripa offered to be his sponge bath nurse. How sweet!

Pictured is the last public event that Regis and his wife Joy attended. The couple attended the 2007 Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Mortons last month in West Hollywood, Calif.

    Reeg is 75!! Oh my, he does not look or act it – maybe that’s the plan. I have always like him and his personality, love him on his show. I wish him and his family the very best. Go Reeg!!

    Best of luck Regis. Take care of yourself. That sneaky Kelly Ripa is just waiting to bring her husband on the show as your replacement.

    Is there such a thing as a GMILF? His wife, Joy, is one of those women who ages like a good bottle of wine.
