Now that she's over the initial shock of finding out pretty much alongside the whole world that Regis Philbin is retiring for their TV gig, Kelly Ripa has released a statement to express her feelings on the matter.
Yes, she's rather sad about it. Who can blame her? How do you thank someone who's taken you from
crayons to perfume minimal recognition to superstardom?
It wasn't easy, but she tried. Her statement reads:
"While I realize that nothing is forever, still I had always hoped there would be an exception. I can't overstate what Regis has brought to the table. His chair might soon be empty but the wonderful moments I have experienced with him over the past 10 years will always make him a meaningful part of my life."
Aww! That's nice! Hopefully, you two will stay in touch the same way he does with Kathie Lee!
Maybe it's too soon to be asking this, but who do U think is going to replace him? Or will he even BE replaced?! Is Kelly out of a job now?
What does this all mean???
