Live with Kristy Lee Cook

American Idol (ex)contestant Kristy Lee Cook leaves ABC Studios with a kiss after appearing on Live with Regis and Kelly in New York City on Monday.

Kristy was the last contestant voted off after the Mariah Carey-inspired show. Kristy‘s journey to AI has gotten attention as she had to sell her horse to get money to travel to the audition. Unfortunately, the person who purchased the horse is unwilling to sell it back. Even Ryan Seacrest pleaded with the owner on the show to sell it back!

Milo Ventimiglia Wanted to be a Fighter Pilot

Before Milo Ventimiglia was playing the power-absorbing Peter Petrelli in Heroes or even acting for that matter, he had some other life aspirations.

“I had a couple options,” Milo, 30, shared on Live with Regis and Kelly! “One, I wanted to be an actor. Two, I wanted to be a doctor. And third, I wanted to be a fighter pilot.”

But even though Milo went on to become an actor, he still took to the skies: “During the strike, when Hollywood was shut down, [I went up in a fighter plane]. And I also spent some time with the Air Force Reserves. It was amazing. It was one of the coolest things I’d ever done to see what these pilots put themselves through, the training, what the planes are capable of.”

When co-host Kelly Ripa asked if he felt nauseous up in the fighter plane, Milo laughed, “Yeah, I got sick. It’s hard not to. There’s actually a photograph of me before I got into the plane–hair’s polished, I’m looking good, I’m standing up tall. And then there’s one of me after I finished the flight and eh, a little crooked.”

And good news! Milo had a little tidbit to share about Heroes: “We’re going into [filming] our third season starting May 1. Back with new episodes in September!”

Hoorah!!! Watch Milo‘s interview on Regis below. Milo‘s latest film, Pathology, opens in theaters this Friday!

Reese Witherspoon @ Regis & Kelly

Penelope star and producer Reese Witherspoon stopped by Live with Regis and Kelly! on Wednesday morning. She talked about her latest film, Penelope, and her new costar Vince Vaughn in the film Four Christmases.

“We’re such a funny couple,” Reese laughed. “He’s 6’5″, I’m 5’2″. It’s going to be really funny. I’m a producer and he’s a producer, so we boss each other around. Mondays I get to be the boss and Tuesdays he’s the boss.”

As a producer, Reese has to keep the crew happy. And how does she do that? Feed them well!

“Mainly what I do is organize the snacks,” Reese admitted. “I’m not joking actually because I need to make sure everybody has a lot of snacks. The key to having a happy crew is feeding them lots of coffee. Good coffee and I have the ice cream truck come on Fridays.”

Ice cream!!!! That’s key.
