Kelly Ripa on Regis Philbin: I Don’t Keep In Touch With Him

Perhaps Kelly Ripa has gotten her fill of Regis Philbin?

The talk show hosts spent a dozen years chatting together on-air, but Kelly admits that she hasn't spoken to him since he retired in 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kelly was asked to compare her current co-star, 41-year-old Michael Strahan, with the 81-year-old Regis.

"Well they’re both incredible storytellers," she said.

"They are both fiercely competitive, and they’re both incredible football players," she joked.

Then, Kelly was asked if she keeps in touch with Regis, and the sad news came out.

"I haven't seen him, no," Kelly responded.

If this is indeed true, it's a bummer, since the two seemed to have a great rapport while hosting Live! With Regis and Kelly together for so many years.

Regis, for his part, seems to be a fan of the new show.

"He's got a good sense of humor," Regis told Us Weekly last year. "He's a good guy. I think they're doing great."

So did something go wrong between Kelly and Regis? Or are they both too busy with their own lives?

We're hoping they can meet up soon and make hilarious chit-chat like they used to.
