Who would win in a fight: Kelly Ripa or Regis Philbin?
After Michael Strahan blindsided Kelly Ripa past year for a new job on Good Morning America, we weren't surprised that the former cohosts didn't keep in touch.
Philbin said he still misses hosting and added that the show has "never once" asked him to return as a guest co-host.
"She got very offended when I left", he says. "She thought I was leaving because of her", Philbin said of Ripa. "I was leaving because I was getting older and it wasn't right for me anymore".
However, he said he feels Kelly took it super personally; it was 11 years ago - and he never hears from her.
King wasn't the first interviewer to probe Philbin about his rocky post-show relationship with Ripa.
"I don't know. How often would it be?" "I do miss it". Would it be every night?
Despite being a draw for their talk show for almost 30 years, Philbin said he has never been asked back.
Kelly Ripa is hosting "Live with Kelly" on her own - for now.
Ripa is now hosting the show with a rotating group of famous folk while the network decides upon her next permanent co-anchor. "I do miss it". "But, you know, I just figured it was time to let it go". "I learned a lot from her, though".
