Regis Urges NJ 'Housewives' Teresa and Melissa to End Feud For Their Parents (VIDEO)
We don't usually tune in to 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) for hard-hitting, emotionally raw interviews, but Reeg stepped up Friday and got real with 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
They've been feuding on the show this season, and Regis zeroed in on how the reality TV drama was affecting their real-life families, particularly Teresa and Joe Giudice's parents.
"What do your mother and father say about this?" he asked Teresa.
"I don't think they ever want to be on the show again, because they're disgusted. Look, my legs are shaking now, just saying that about my parents."
"You're picked to be on the show because there could be a conflict. You know that, right?" he asked Melissa, who's married to Teresa's brother Joe. "So you're giving them what they want, but it's to the disadvantage of your parents," he continued, as they both nodded silently in agreement.
Perhaps after he steps away from the TV gig later this year, Regis could have a future career as a family therapist.
