Lisa Rinna would love to fill Regis Philbin’s spot

HollywoodNews.com: Back when Kathie Lee Gifford’s spot next to Regis Philbin needed to be filled, Lisa Rinna was up for the job. Now, it seems she’d like to be up for filling his spot now.
Rinna recently revealed that she thinks it would be a nice change to have another woman sitting next to Kelly Ripa, states PopEater.
“I think it’s actually smart to put a lady in there [with] Kelly. It would be fun to co-host with her, at least see what the chemistry would be like cause we know sometimes women get along, sometimes they don’t,” Rinna commented, adding that Regis really can’t be replaced.

Regis Philbin may be shopping his own talk show

It is being rumored that the TV star is trying to get his own talk show going, states GossipCop (via the New York Post). Philbin has allegedly been shopping his own syndicated daytime talk show.
Now, the only question is if the show got picked up, would it be in direct competition with Kelly Ripa?

Could Regis Philbin be replaced with a woman?

HollywoodNews.com: Ever since Regis Philbin announced he will be leaving ‘Live with Regis and Kelly,’ people have been shooting around names for his replacement.
However, at this time, most of the names have been male, but it is rumored that a woman might actually end up being his replacement, states PopEater. Apparently, Lisa Rinna is one name that keeps coming up among the executives.
While Rinna has constantly filled in for a number of hosts on various shows, there are still questions that might prevent her from being chosen. Execs are reportedly unsure of what her chemistry would be like with Kelly Ripa and if she would be willing to move from Los Angeles to New York with her family.

Neil Patrick Harris, Anderson Cooper: Regis replacements?

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: We learned earlier this month that soon-to-be 80-year-old Regis Philbin will be leaving ‘Live With Regis and Kelly’ either in late summer or early fall.
We’ll miss Regis – he is one of a kind.
So who will replace him alongside the wonderful Kelly Ripa?
‘Entertainment Weekly’ has amassed a list of top 10 candidates and listed the buzz and various pros and cons for each.
Since Regis has missed so many shows in recent years – particularly Fridays – we’ve gotten to see Kelly with various guest hosts. My two favorites have been Neil Patrick Harris and Anderson Cooper. She has great chemistry with both and both these guys have the smarts and charm to do the job and do it well.
Problem is, and ‘EW’ points this out, both are very in demand in other places. Anderson, who works as a newsman for CNN and for ’60 Minutes,’ is also launching a syndicated talk show this fall called ‘Anderson.’ So he’s not going to have time now which is a pity.
Neil is still starring in the CBS sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ is a new father of twins and has plenty of movie and stage offers during his off time from the sitcom.
Here’s the rest of the list. I like some of the guys on it like Chris Cuomo, Jeff Probst and Mark Consuelos but Billy Bush would be too much like Regis!
‘Entertainment Weekly’ writes:
Ryan Seacrest: You can’t have a major talk show vacancy without his name coming up. He could clearly handle the job. The trick (as is the case with several names below) is working around his existing deals.
Jeff Probst: The ‘Survivor’ host is a superb interviewer, he has co-hosted the show in the past, and his contract is up this year.
Mario Lopez: Another former ‘Live!’ co-host. We’re told he’s potentially a popular contender, but that his deal with ‘Extra’ may hold things up.
Chris Harrison: ‘The Bachelor’ host is already in the ABC family. If he can handle crazed bachelorettes, surely he can work with sweet Kelly, right?
Mark Consuelos: Yup, Kelly’s husband. He’s an actor and reality show host. We’re hearing he’s an unlikely choice.
Chris Cuomo: The ’20/20′ host is another ABC insider.
Anderson Cooper: Woulda-coulda-shoulda. He’s busy trying to get his own daytime talk show off the ground.
Billy Bush: Like Lopez, there’s an entertainment news program deal to work around — this time, with ‘Access Hollywood.’

Did Regis Philbin quit over a money dispute?

HollywoodNews.com: It surprised a number of people when Regis Philbin quit his ABC show, but most assumed it was because he had been working for so long. However, was it simply over a money matter?
It is being reported that Philbin was being given a pay cut as his last contract had expired, states TMZ. He was reportedly losing money because the show wasn’t doing as well and he takes a lot of time off.
Philbin currently makes somewhere between $18 to $20 million and apparently that is where he wanted to stay. This reportedly spurred his decision to leave the show.

Neil Patrick Harris hosting on ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Hey, I still like Regis Philbin just fine.
But a guy who’s pushing 80 deserves to take a Friday off from ‘Live With Regis and Kelly’ whenever he wants to.
And what’s cool is his partner Kelly Ripa clicks so well with several guys who step in for Regis including her husband Mark Consuelos, CNN’s Silver Fox Anderson Cooper and the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris.

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.
