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!
