LIVE! With Regis and Kelly started its four-day run of Vegas shows from Encore on the right foot—with Regis Philbin grabbing Nicki Minaj’s booty on the Nov. 29 episode.
He also said “Wish I could” when Minaj told him the advice Lil Wayne gave her was to “Go hard.” That is exactly why it’s awesome to be 79.
Philbin and his wife, Joy, went back-to-back for lunch Nov. 26 and 27 at Society Café. That Saturday, Kelly Ripa and husband Mark were there with her kids at the same time as Jimmy Kimmel, who was also a guest on the show. It’s dangerous to have that many talk show hosts in one place at one time. God forbid something happens, then we’re stuck with Jay Leno as the only host left standing.
