Cloris Leachman Really Wants to Know Regis Philbin's Future TV Plans (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Sep 26th 2011 6:30PM
Cloris Leachman and Regis Philbin shared a moment Monday on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), even if it was somewhat uncomfortable for everyone else. The 'Raising Hope' star turned the tables on her interviewer, asking Regis a series of questions about his future TV plans after he leaves 'Live' at the end of the year.

Turning her back to the audience, Leachman clasped Regis' hand and asked him, repeatedly, what he'd be doing in the next phase of his career. He tried to tell her that he doesn't know exactly, but hopes he'll be back on TV in some capacity (we've heard he's filming some kind of reality show). It soon became apparent that she wasn't going to let up. "Uh oh, it's one of those," he groaned.

The segment really began to feel like eavesdropping on a private conversation when Leachman moved in closer, and Regis, sounding a little sad, said "I don't know, honey. I really don't know." As Kelly Ripa took a rare moment of silence, a quick shot of the audience suggested that they didn't know how to react to this unusual moment of intimacy, either.

Ever the master, Regis invited both the audience and Kelly back in when he joked that his next show would be "an action show. I wear a cape."

I'm very sad to see Regis go, especially the way he's going. I sense that ABC wouldn't agree to his contract and felt he wasn't an important part of "Live with Regis and Kelly". This saddens me not only because it was HIS show but because they just trampled all over him and the viewers. I like Kelly, however I like her as part of the team with Regis. I Know she felt blindsided in the way Regis was forced to announce his departure but her bitterness towards him is coming through and it is uncomfortable to watch.

Daytime TV is becoming a sad wasteland compared to what it used to be.

This lady freaks me out. I cant get the image of her taping Jimmy hand to hers and using it to rub her boobs out. Really disturbing.

I think she didn't want anyone to zero in on her new face.
