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???

    I agree with prc…Kelly and Anderson Cooper definitely have good chemistry (probably even more than when her husband is sitting in as the co-host!).

    Regis will be missed, but it's better for him to go out on top.

    even though he's lost a step the past few years, regis no doubt carries this show. he's why people want to be on the show. it will be difficult to replace him and carry on with the same impact. to the haters. kelly and regis are friends. their families mix off screen and behave like all friends would. she no doubt wants nothing but the best for regis as he certainly wishes kelly future success. how can anybody call this woman a bitch. i mean you are entitled to your opinion but really.

    I am going with a dark horse in who might sit in when my dad leaves Regis and Kelly. My pick is Shepard Smth from Fox News.
