Kelly Ripa Doesn't Keep In Touch With Regis Philbin

Posted: Updated:

Kelly Ripa revealed on Thursday that she hasn't seen former co-host Regis Philbin since he left "Live!"

The Hollywood Reporter honored her as one of its "35 Most Important People In Media" on Thursday night. When asked if she has kept in touch with Philbin, she told THR, "I haven't seen him, no."

Philbin left "Live!" in 2011 after almost three decades hosting the show. Ripa joined the show in 2001, replacing Kathy Lee Gifford. After Philbin's departure, she tried out a rotating cast of guest co-hosts before Michael Strahan — who also made the Hollywood Reporter's list — was officially named co-host in September 2012.

Meanwhile, Philbin is gearing up to host a sports show on the new channel Fox Sports 1. The show, which debuts in August, will feature a panel of hosts, similar to ABC's "The View."
