Kelly Ripa’s autobiography was turned down by Kathie Lee Gifford
According to Kathie Lee Gifford, who co-hosted the popular talk show “Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee” with Regis Philbin for 15 years, Ripa’s autobiographical book is not something she intends to read because she is confident that Regis was not cruel to anyone and finds the headlines a little disturbing. Even though she claimed that she would never say anything negative about anyone, she just held the opinion that her reality differed from that of others.
Kelly Ripa took Kathie Lee Gifford’s place on the show in 2001, and she served as Regis’ co-host for “Live With Regis and Kelly” until 2011.
What does Kelly Ripa have to say in her autobiography about the late Regis Philbin?
In a section of her autobiographical book, “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories,” Ripa discusses her complicated relationship with Regis and describes it as “not a cakewalk.” She also expresses her discomfort at not being able to bring hair and makeup artists and imagines that Regis doesn’t want a co-host, which may be why he was intending to do certain things. She continued by praising her co-host as the best storyteller in the world, expressing her admiration for him outside of the workplace, and recalling her supper with him as one of the best nights of her life.
What did the late Regis Philbin’s friend and co-host Kathie Lee Gifford say about him?
When asked about Regis Philbin, Kathie claimed that he was the best co-host she had had for 15 years. She mentioned that they were extremely close friends, and their relationship only grew stronger after she left the talk show. She even notified the media that she visited him two weeks before he expired and that as soon as she learned that he was gone, she drove her car to his residence.
Let’s take a look at her interview, in which she poured her heart out on Kelly Ripa’s autobiography, Regis Philbin, and her friendship with him.
