Regis Philbin has SPOKEN!

On Thursday, Regis gave his two cents on the controversy surrounding Kelly & Michael. Phlibin's opinion on this matter is especially important considering he was Kelly Ripa's costar on Live With Regis and Kelly.

While R.P. hasn't spoken with Ripa too much since his departure from the show in 2011, he's clearly on her team 100%. It's clear the icon believes ABC did the beauty dirty by keeping her in the dark about Michael Strahan's exit.

Standing firm on his position, the 84-year-old declared to TMZ:

"They should have told her in the beginning."

When pressed if K.R. was blindsided, the former cohost responded:

"To a degree. I can't tell because I'm not there. They're going to be alright. It'll be fine."

Hmm… we're not sure everything is "fine" considering Kel might not return to the show!

Despite Reg's support of the momma, he still thinks Michael is a great guy:

"He's great. He was great with The Giants. He's great on our show. He's doing a lot of stuff. He really is. He's a real pro. And [Good Morning America] could use him down there because they're in second place right now."

We just hope this drama comes to an end!

She must really be going through it.

Kelly Ripa is currently at the center of TV's biggest scandal after Michael Strahan decided to leave Live with Kelly and Michael without even telling her.

We already knew that the veteran host was taking some time off to heal from Disney and ABC's slight, but she's apparently much more distraught than we originally thought!

That's because a source close to Kel spoke to Daily Mail on Thursday and revealed that she's so devastated by the news that she's actually cancelled her and Mark Consuelos' 20th Anniversary vacation to Turks and Caicos this weekend!

The source did not hold back from accusing the network of intentionally releasing the Good Morning America casting news ahead of her romantic trip, saying:

Kelly Ripa is taking some time off from Live With Kelly and Michael after getting blindsided by Michael Strahan's sudden departure for a full time position at Good Morning America.

And though the longtime host is understandably livid over the secret shake up — so much that she has reportedly threatened to boycott the morning program until Strahan leaves — executives at ABC are confident the perky blonde isn't going anywhere!

According to production sources, it is highly unlikely that Ripa would leave the show out of anger, because she reportedly gets a pretty hefty salary — and has pretty expensive taste!

Insiders told TMZ that even though Kelly makes almost $15 million a year, she spends most of it on her lavish lifestyle, dishing:
