Regis Philbin Says Kelly Ripa ‘Got Very Offended’ When He Decided To Leave ‘Live!’

Regis Philbin has been radio silent with former co-host Kelly Ripa ever since he left the ABC chat fest.

Philbin was asked on Larry King Tuesday if he still talks to Ripa and he firmly replied, “not really, no.”

The two starred alongside each other on the ABC morning talk show from 2001 to 2011 before Philbin, 85, decided to quit the gig.

“She got very offended when I left. She thought I was leaving because of her,” Philbin told King.

“I was leaving because I was getting older and that wasn’t right for me anymore,” he added.

Philbin said that despite the fact that Ripa, 46, now goes through a series of guest hosts each morning, the show never once asked him to co-anchor for a day.

When King asked if a return to hosting was in the star’s future he responded it would be a matter of frequency.
