Regis Philbin Is Probably the Only Person in America Who Didn't Know About Kim Kardashian's Wedding

Regis PhilbinAlthough America had its own less spectacular, less important version of the Royal Wedding this weekend when reality TV royalty Kim Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries in California, there are apparently some people who were unaware that such a blessed event took place.

Because octogenarian TV hosts are usually up on the latest happenings in the Kardashian world, a group of photographers decided it was important to get Regis Philbin to weigh in on Saturday's K-themed nuptials. One problem: Reege didn't even know it was happening!

According to E! Online, the 'Regis and Kelly' star asked the photogs as they snapped him leaving dinner Sunday night, "I didn't see it...did that happen today?"

Ever the gentleman, Philbin had a nice message for the newlyweds when he found out the wedding was the day before. "I wish them good luck, you know. They look like a very handsome couple!"

This isn't the first time the almost-80-year-old hasn't exactly been up on his pop culture. He couldn't really handle Twitter, and he didn't even know he was dressed as Justin Bieber for Halloween until Kelly told him later.

Lesson learned: Do not count on Regis Philbin for cutting-edge commentary on pop culture events.

Check out this E!-approved first look at Kim's wedding:

I knew she had married somebody, but I really don't know whow she is or what she is famous for. Shes kind of hot I guess, but I have never watched whatever shows shes on, don't know anything about it, or her. Her and her ilk just are
nt all that around here.
