Regis Philbin Reveals Kelly Ripa Was 'Offended' When He Left

Regis Philbin is opening up about his relationship (or lack thereof) with former Live! co-star Kelly Ripa.

The 85-year-old TV personality confirmed that he is no longer in contact with her after leaving the ABC show in 2011.

“Never once did they ask me to go back,” Regis said on Larry King Now (via People). “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.”

Regis hosted the show for 28 years, the last 10 of which were alongside Kelly.

    she has a bad reputation

    She treated Regis like a washed up old man on a daily basis. So glad you left the show with your dignity Regis. Kelly would be the end of any sane person. Kelly you need to leave T.V. You are so in love with yourself that you will not be missed by the handful of people that still watch your ridiculous show.

    She was offended when Regis left… she was offended when Michael Strahan left… maybe she is the problem. I think she has crossed the line and gone from being a strong, confident woman who stands up for herself and has just become a bitch.
