Nicki Minaj shocked by Regis Philbin’s booty tap
HollywoodNews.com: On a recent taping of Live with Regis & Kelly, that old dog, Regis Philbin, may have gotten a little too friendly with Nicki Minaj. After a rousing rendition of “Right Thru Me”, Philbin and Ripa ventured over to the stage to chat with the theatrical singer/rapper and that’s where the weirdness began.
After a few quick glances up and down Minaj’s voluptuous curves, Regis decided that it was now or never. Philbin eventually steered the conversation towards Minaj’s colorful style, noting her dress “looks like you’ve got a little strap around there.” Regis Philbin then proceeded to give a little pat to Minaj’s buttocks, much to the surprise of the crowd, Minaj, and Philbin’s co-host Ripa who asked, “Regis! What just happened?” Pop Eater reports.
Depite Minaj’s best attempts to move on with the conversation, Philbin couldn’t resist. After stating that Lil Wayne’s advice for the young rapper was to “go hard,” Philbin’s response was “Go hard? I wish I could.”
Oh Rege, you pepper-haired playboy! If there’s one thing we can all gather from this weird occurrence, it is that Nicki Minaj is irresistible, even to the most seasoned of talk show hosts. Minaj later tweeted that she was “shocked” by Philbin’s behavior.
