We recently reported that Regis came clean and admitted he was fired as we feared was the case back when he announced that he was leaving ‘Live! with Regis and Kelly. Although he will be on until November 18, it was back in January that Regis made public that he wouldn’t be returning to ‘LIVE! with Regis and Kelly’ – but didn’t say exactly why. When someone mentioned to him it was a mistake letting him go he responded with typical modesty: “Of course it’s a big mistake, but Regis is moving on.”
As for who will replace him on the show with Kelly Ripa, Regis says they haven’t chosen anyone yet. His personal front-runners are Kelly’s hubby, Mark Consuelos and Bravo host Andy Cohen.
