I just watched the last show that Regis will co-host on “Live With Regis and Kelly” with a sad heart. I love Regis. He is such a clown, always willing to make fun of himself. He definitely put a smile on my face morning after morning for many years, as he did for millions of viewers.
Regis was an incredible personality day after day. It will be hard to replace him. Jerry Seinfeld will be the first co-host on Monday morning and I definitely want to see that, though somehow I don’t think he will be panting for the full-time job. Honestly, I don’t think that anybody will fill Regis’ shoes in the same way, though I’m sure the network will find someone great, just as they did eleven years ago when they selected Kelly Ripa, who has also been amazing.
Kelly is adorable, funny, smart, quick on her feet. Whoever gets to work with her day after day will be very lucky.
Regis, we will miss you. I have had tears in my eyes for weeks now as the show and all of your colleagues and fans have said goodbye to you. Monday to Friday mornings from 9-10 will never be the same.
