New Name Being Tossed Around to Replace Regis… Guess Who?
We've heard lots of names mentioned when it comes to replacing Regis Philbin when he retires from "Live" at the end of the summer... but there's one that may surprise you getting some serious consideration! One of the names that keeps popping up in the executive suites over at ABC is none other than Lisa Rinna. "Lisa has proved she can do the job," one exec tells Popeater. "She has co-hosted the show with Regis, filled in for Joy Behar on her show and was even better than Billy Bush when she stepped into his shoes on Access Hollywood's new daytime show." There are questions though, like what would her chemistry be like with Kelly, and would she be willing to move her entire family from sunny LA to NYC? I guess we'll have to wait and see come the end of summer!
