Regis Philbin ‘upset’ about Michael Strahan’s “Live” success
Former Live with Regis and Kelly host, Regis Philbin is reportedly not too happy with the huge success of his predecesor, Michael Strahan.
The retired NY Giants star joined Kelly late last year, earning a set at the Live morning table. A close source is opening up saying that retirement isn’t all that Reg hoped it would be. “Of course, it hurts him; of course, it affects him,” a source said. “Has he ever been on the show since he’s left? No. That’s it for him. He can’t be too happy about that since leaving.”
Kelly and Michael have enjoyed a huge ratings bump since Michael joined the team. But honestly, I don’t know that it’s all Michael…Kelly has always been better when she wasn’t sitting next to Regis.
