regis philbin contractual issues

Seriously, ABC? This didn't have anything to do with that creepy moment Reg had back in July, did it?

During a recent interview, Regis Philbin opened up about leaving Live!, and he admitted that his impending exit from the show is NOT 100% his decision:

"The contractual issue just never worked out, but I was going to leave before that anyway."

He then added:

"…It's a big mistake, but Regis is moving on."

"I don't want anything lined up yet. I want to have a few moments of peace alone before I get involved with somebody else."

Sorry to hear it, Regis, but we suppose it all worked out since you were going to leave anyway!

We continue to wish U the best, and we'll look forward to hearing your future plans soon!

What do U think? Did Reg WANT to leave Live!?

    Gimme a break ! The old coot is older than Methuselah and has been on TV longer than anyone. Time to pass the keys along. Most people have never had the chance to work past 65 let alone 80. He could have made a graceful exit …. but Regis don't do that !

    Love him. Will miss him. I love that he doesn't get technology, that he gets frustrated like a 'get off my lawn' type of way, he doesn't kiss up to kelly which will happen with the next host. I love that Kelly has to remind him of things and help him pronounce names.
    Just love him.
