As “Live! With Regis and Kelly” co-host Regis Philbin gets ready to retire next week, Kelly Ripa has committed to five more years with the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Kelly’s signed a “lucrative” five-year deal with Disney-ABC Domestic Television, which will go into effect next fall. The additional five years will give Ripa, 41, a total of 16 fun-filled years with “Live!” How time flies.
Execs are looking to fill 80-year-old Philbin's spot as co-host on the morning chat show, but a source tells THR that "No decision has been made yet."
Personalities reportedly considered include Ryan Seacrest and Bravo's Andy Cohen.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves - Ripa's current co-host still has another week! Philbin will have a star-studded send-off, with next week's guests including David Letterman, Donald Trump, Jimmy Fallon and his old partner, Kathie Lee Gifford.
i think mario lopez could do it also..it will smooth out that voice of kelly ripa's...it goes right through me also.
The show won't be the same without Regis. But if I could choose I think Mario Lopez would be a great replacement.
yep...Lopez could do it...oh and i can't resist doing this...kelly? HONK HONK-that voice has got to child girl.
Forced retirement. They pretty much fired him.
I want to be the new replacement so I can see Kelly every morning.
kelly? HONK HONK...LOL
Regis Sir you will be missed Monday Friday,
enjoy your retirement
Too bad Regis isn't going out with class: Donald Trump?
PLEASE do not let it be Ryan Seacrest. I think everyone, including myself, is a little sick of him dominating every show on the planet. Next thing you know, he'll be showing up the series finale of Desperate Housewives.
ryan who? please.
Ryan Seacrest? God no
ryan seacrest appears to be a bore, if you put him next to HONK HONK(that is so funny) it will be the worst.
next you'll here Ryan is our new jenny craig representative.
cool. just lighten up on the spray tan.
yes she looks silly with all that fake tanning
that has just GOT to taste good

Very funny lol.

The show will die soon after Regis leaves. No one will wish to take the abuse Kelly gives Regis on a daily basis. She constantly interrupts Regis and guests with how any topic effects her and her family. Kathy Lee did the same schtick and no one misses her at all. I am woman, hear me bore!!!
I agree, she has worn that show out. it's like watching I love Lucy reruns.
i agree..regis is the whole show...even now..he's the whole show..when he's gone we'll be saying he was the whole show...regis is professional, i met him in person, he treats his fans like a millions bucks...we'll miss your reege..kelly not sure if she will be able to handle it...
kelly is basically rude and loud..HONK HONK...that poor new co-host.
You are right, give the show 6 months to a year and it be off the air!
That's cos yer used to trailer park trash and yer jealous!
Regis is a gayy if you didn't know that already.
Hottest woman ever.
too skinny and her voice sound like this donkey honk first thing in the morning..i have to flip stations sometimes...oi vey
could el gordo be david letterman? lol
Regis is eighty ? He looks good for a old man. Live won't be the same with out him !
That's right Live will never be the same. again. Your fans will miss you terribly!
