| Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!Kelly Ripa

Kelly Ripa Howie Mandel

It's been a long journey for those who have been eyeing the spot next to Kelly Ripa on Live! with Kelly, but it might soon be over…

So who is the lucky guy?? Who will take that legendary seat??

Sources are telling us exclusively:

"It's looking 90% posistive that Howie Mandel is going to replace Regis."

What! Those are some strong odds!

Well, he IS really comfortable up there in front of audiences, that's for sure!

Would U be okay with this choice for permanent substitution??

  4. 4

  5. 5

  6. 6

    This is absolutely awful news. This will ruin my mornings :(

    Let me take a moment to add Howie & Kelly to the list of shows I won't be watching…
    My list now includes…
    Howie & Kelly…
    Howie Do It…
    America's Got Talent…
    Syndicated Deal or No Deal…
    Bobby's World…
    And any other show that dares to put that talent less hack on TV…unless he's blowing a rubber glove up with his head, he serves no purpose…

    Doesn't matter who it is. I was so sickened by watching Kelly kissing Kim Kardashian's butt that I will never watch her again. I always thought she was a phony, but that was disgusting.

    Sad…just plain sad :-(

    Mario- did you ever think that if you do have a source that they are blabbing to everyone else too, so there goes "exclusively"

  14. 14

    No, I'm so fucking sick and tired of Howie Mandell.

    I think the replacement needed to be someone like Andy Cohen or Anderson Cooper. I know they weren't available, but it should be someone similar to them.

    I watched them this am and thought he would be a terrific cohost. he is unique (like regis0. there is only one regis and one howie! i am so surprised to read he is very close to becoming the cohost after just thinking that this am.

  16. 16

    No! He is the WORST. I watch the show and honestly I would probably stop watching if Howie became permanent. He was terrible this morning - yes he can talk. But what he says is unappealing and off-putting. I really wish they'd find someone good already though…

  17. 17

    He's too manic for me. I won't be watching. Tick tock. . .
    Perez, there are some remedial English classes that you can take if you insist on having your own website giving daily gossip. Every single one of your articles have typos galore EVERY SINGLE DAY!! It's distracting. Or, hire a secretary to proof your work before you post it. You should care more. It's a reflection on you.

    MASSIVE FAIL. he is a huge wate of skin and oxygen

    Re: rosebud99 – I so strongly agree with you Rosebud99. What a mistake they (Kelly and Gellman) made inviting that human toilet as guest cohost. Maybe Kelly, her daughter Lola and Auntie Kim K. Can watch the Bachelor and discuss picking life partners. Great role models for Lola. Howie is a step up from Kelly alone but I'll never know because I'm done watching that trash.

    It didn't make sense that Howie would sell his SoCal home and relocate to NYC just for the couple of months that AGT will broadcast live shows from NYC. Add the gig with Kelly to the mix and it all makes sense.

  21. 21

    Bad idea! Horrible! I think Kelly would be better off with rotating co-hosts. He just isn't that likable.

  22. 22

    If Mandel gets the spot, that's the end of watching that show. I don't hate him - but EVERY DAY?? FORVER? EGAD. He acted today as though he's been given the show. He was very chewing up of the show even as they interviewed Jennifer Lopez. Which I can't stand her, you could tell that she was 15 seconds away from calling for her manager over to ask why she had to be interrupted and overshadowed by Mandel. He's just too much and too weird for a daily morning talk show. And he's going to play host to THOUSANDS of people but be a germaphobic who won't shake hands? Even his flash mob show makes no sense for a self-proclaimed germaholic. Hosting shows packed with hundreds and hundreds of strangers? He's just not daytime material.

    I will DEFINATELY stop watching.. I can't STAND Howie Mandel and more. I think he's pompus, arrogant and not very funny. There was a time he was very talent, but he just not "fresh" anymore. C'mon Gellman.. there has to be a better choice. Why not make the smart move and follow the trend of having another female co-host? I think Lea Remini and Kelly would be hillarious together… please please please no Howie… don't ruin this show!!!
