Wow! We didn't see this one coming!

Sources close to the production of Live With Regis and Kelly have revealed that upon Philbin's exit from the morning talk show this summer, Josh Duhamel may be in the running to fill his vacant seat - because he's apparently a favorite guest of Ripa's!

And when the actor's wife, Fergie, was asked to confirm, she replied rather coyly by saying:

"Wow! Do they have Vegas odds on that? Right now he is actually in New York filming 'New Year's Eve.' You're going to have to ask him that question."

If true, that would definitely be a pretty huge career shift for him!

But hey! He'd definitely be a nice bit of eye candy to enjoy during the weekday mornings!

Why the hell not?! LOLz!

What do U think?? Who should replace Regis??

    not kelly ripa's husband cause everytime he goes on the show she monopolizes the talking and he struggles to say " hi"! lmao!!!



  2. 2

    Wow, basically of you're an All My Children Alum, you have the capabilities of hosting a morning show that involves or has involved Regis Philbin.



  3. 3

    I wanted Mark to replace Regis. :(



  4. 4

    He would be good but also from All My Children is Thorsten Kaye who would be excellent and a wit with voice that melts your heart…



  5. 5

    FAIL



  6. 6

    That RIPA BITCH should choke on her own vomit. SO ANNOYING!!!



  7. 7

    Best guest host has always been Anderson Cooper, great chemistry between the two!



  8. 8

    MARIO LOPEZ!

    Well, since Anderson Cooper can't (he has his own show), I wish they'd choose Jeff Probst… he does Survivor, but they could get "guest hosts" while he was doing that… Kelly and these two guys have good chemistry.



  10. 10

    I liked Howie Mandel best of the sub hosts. I like looking at Josh Duhamel - I'd watch it.



  11. 11

    Josh would be great. Funny, very charismatic, good looking. And its in NY, so he can still do theater and TV when he wants.



  12. 12

    Good Idea…Keep him in NY and out of the air being RUDE to people!!!!!!!



  13. 13

    Bryant Gumble, he is always good with Kelly. Pat Sayjack too. They need to keep with their audience. The audience are mid west, mini -van moms and elderly women.
    Josh would not be a good fit.



  14. 14

    If he does get it, how soon will the rumors start about them having an affair?



  15. 15

    The short list so far has included:
    Martin Short (he had his own short lived talk show, was endorsed by Regis to replace him)
    Mark Consuelos
    Neil Patrick Harris
    Anderson Cooper
    Howie Mandel
    Billy Bush (Access Hollywood anchor)
    Tom Bergeron
    Erik Estrada (actor-TV show CHiPs)
    Mike Rowe (host of Dirty Jobs/former host of WJZ-TV Channel 13-1/13.1 Baltimore's Your New Home-considered a sleeper candidate)
    Mario Lopez
    Ryan Seacrest
    I think after looking at that list, Josh Duhamel is considered a long shot.



  16. 16

    Martin Short or Neil Patrick Harris all the way!!
    I think that Anderson Cooper may just be at the top of the list amongst the powers that be and while I like Anderson, he is a little stiff for this type of progamming imo.



  17. 17

    Ok I would pledge to watch for like a week if promised to talk about how he cheated on fergie with hookers right after they go married and then had the hookers on for guests and made Ripas husband guest host that day. Have you heard Josh speak….Vacancy…..



  18. 18

    i would have loved anderson cooper too bad now he has his own talk show in the afternoons so that wont happen



  19. 19

    There are only two people that I think would be great to fill that chair and that is Howie Mandel and Martin Short! They are so funny! You need a comedian to replace Regis. Thank god Regis is leaving! He is so grumpy and so out of it half the time. He doesn't understand half the things Kelly talking about.



  20. 20

    Good choice. Another All My Children Alum. Her husband Mark would also make a great sub host!



  21. 21

    NOT happening!

    He's so pretty, even if he was a bad host, he is so pretty.

  23. ivy77 says – reply to this


    23

    HELLS YES!!!! i'd looooove to see Josh Duhamel



  24. 24

    Kelly doesn't need anybody….she works well with all guest hosts. However top runners in my books should be Neil Patrick Harris, Anderson Cooper and the guy from The Defenders…he was dang funny hosting with her the last time he was on. I can't stand Martin Short….sick of Howie ….Josh is Meh! Must we see Survivor dude on another show and Ryan Seacrest *Blech* Tired of seeing the same old same oles!



  25. 25

    As usual, fabricated news. Debunked by Gossip cop who called the reps to fact-check.



  26. 26

    no one should replace him. the show should end when he leaves. seeing as how hes always been a part of it it seems the only respectful thing to do.



  27. 27

    I dont' think Josh is a good pick, but I am all for Martin Short…..the perfect match for Kelly.



  28. 28

    No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, NOT Bryant Gumble………………….he would monopollze the show with his ego………………No, No, No, No, No. He offers nothing to anything.



  29. 29

    Kathy Lee Gifford. Now that would be classic.



  30. 30

    MIKE ROWE!! I love Mike Rowe! Swoon! And he is a TV guy so it would be a nice fit.

    I like Rick Sanchez. Get him away from politics and he's quite personable, and has a lot more experience than Duhamel.
