by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 12th 2011 8:15PM
After winning the $1 million prize on 'The Amazing Race,' Ernie Halvorsen and Cindy Chiang dropped in on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on on ABC) to tell Kelly and guest-host Taye Diggs about what it was like to compete in, and ultimately win the competition that took them on a global adventure.

Kelly asked the engaged couple whose idea it was to go on the show. "It was her idea," Ernie said, and Cindy elaborated. "When we first started dating he was like, 'Oh, let's go out to dinner,' and I was like 'No, we have to watch the show.'" Ernie talked about the regimen that Cindy, a self-professed type-A personality, created for the couple to prepare for the competition.

In her search for a new 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) co-host, Kelly Ripa was coupled Monday with 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Derek Hough. Although Hough failed to take home the Mirror Ball Trophy this season for the first time in 'DWTS' tenure, he still had a pretty good year. 'People' named him one of their Sexiest Men Alive, and Kelly just so happened to have a copy of the magazine on hand.

In Hough's photo-spread, he's hanging shirtless from a steel beam with his pants looking like they're about to fall off. Kelly shook the magazine and did her best Regis impression, yelling, "C'mon! Everything is defying gravity, darn it!"

Maya Rudolph's been trying to tell people for months that her 'Up All Night' character Ava, who just so happens to be a flight talk show host, isn't a re-imagining of her famous 'SNL' Oprah impression. But Friday on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), at the behest of guest-host Neil Patrick Harris, Rudolph and Kelly Ripa broke out their dueling Oprah impersonations for an 'Oprah-Off.'

Rudolph started off the competition by announcing a fake audience giveaway that would make Snooki proud. "Today, we're giving away ... pickles!!" she exclaimed, as the audience cheered wildly. Ripa followed up with, "You get a pickle, and you get a pickle and you get a pickle," and got some feedback from Rudolph on her impression.

NPH and Kelly Ripa Inhale Sulfur Hexafluoride, Get Hilariously Deep Voices (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 1st 2011 2:35PM
Everybody knows that inhaling Helium will give you a temporarily high voice and make you sound like Pee-wee Herman. Today on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) Kelly Ripa and guest-host Neil Patrick Harris demonstrated the inverse scientific effect. They had on Science Expert Bob, who came carrying a canister of Sulfur Hexafluoride, a chemical gas that makes your voice hilariously deep.

Bob filled each host up a balloon, and when Harris asked if it was dangerous, Bob could only reply, "Okay, let's do it." Things got pretty entertaining after they inhaled, as they each launched into movie quotes fitting their newly baritone voices. Kelly went to 'Star Wars,' quoting "Luke, I am your Father," while NPH went with a slightly darker reference. "It puts the lotion in the basket," he said, quoting Buffalo Bill from 'Silence of the Lambs.' After that, they burst out in laughter and pretended to be addicted to the stuff.

Neil Patrick Harris Sneaks a Kiss From Betty White (VIDEO)

Yesterday, 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) guest-host and 'How I Met Your Mother Star' Neil Patrick Harris joked that he wanted to make out with Betty White. On Tuesday he got his chance, as the 89-year-old comedienne stopped by 'Live' in advance of the 'Hot in Cleveland' Season 3 premiere (Wed., Nov. 30 at 10PM ET on TV Land.)

The two talked about a potential White 'HIMYM' cameo that never came to be. Before White's late-career resurgence, Harris wanted White to guest-star on the show as sexy cougar that his character Barney Stinson would hook up with. White shared that she was thrilled after getting a call from a 'HIMYM' producer asking her to be on an episode, but never heard back about it.

To make up for the missed opportunity, Harris asked White for a kiss on the cheek. When she leaned in, he turned his face around snuck one on the lips. Something tells us she didn't mind.

Kelly Ripa Gets Raunchy in 'Live' Thanksgiving Gadget Segment (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 23rd 2011 1:15PM
Over the past few years, Kelly Ripa was often Regis Philbin's voice of reason, reeling in the old cad when he went too far off the deep end. But now that he's gone, Ripa's letting it all hang out. In a 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) segment spotlighting some wacky Thanksgiving gadgets, Ripa donned a red-wine-filled bra and joked about a possible alternate use for a Robo-Stirrer.

As resident technology expert David Pogue introduced the Robo-Stirrer, which can robotically stir a pot as it simmers. "Once you take off the soup, it makes a "darn fine back-massager," he said, to which Kelly jokingly replied, "Allright ladies, well I think we all know what's that code for." Pogue was horrified, yelling out, "Oh my god!" and even Jerry Seinfeld seemed taken aback. All the comedian could muster was, "That's the first time someone in Manhattan has said 'darn fine,' but let's keep going."

Jerry Seinfeld Asks New Yorkers Who Should Replace Regis (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 21st 2011 5:30PM
Today began a new era in daytime TV, as 'Live With Regis and Kelly' became 'Live With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) in the wake of Regis Philbin's retirement. Kelly was joined by Jerry Seinfeld, who's serving as her temporary co-host. "I feel very honored that you invited me ... to be the first person to be part of Operation Smooth Transition," he said early in the show. And although Regis' absence has left 'Live' with an identity crisis, Seinfeld, at least today, capably filled the void.

But the question of Kelly's permanent co-host still needs to be answered. Jerry took to the streets, hoping the people of New York might have the answer, but everyone he asked suggested he take the job permanently. "Who that we could afford?" he quipped. When the next person insisted that he would be a good fit, Jerry jokingly caved. "Alright, I'll take it."

It's Regis Philbin's Last Day on 'Live!' -- Now He Wants to Host 'SNL'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 18th 2011 7:45AM
Today is Regis Philbin's last day co-hosting 'Live! With Regis and Kelly,' but it seems as though thoughts of retirement are still far from the 80 year-old's mind. Talking to reporters after Thursday's show he said "I feel pretty good," but he did admit that he may not feel quite so good next week when the show carries on without him.

"I wasn't looking forward to this moment," said Philbin. "You never are in your life when you're leaving a success that you worked your tail off to make." However, the hardest working man in television won't be idle for long. He's embarking next week on a US book tour to promote his new memoir, 'How I Got This Way,' and he's already been toying with the idea of making his own reality show.

However, he told 'The New York Times' that what he'd really, really like to do is host 'Saturday Night Live.' Saying it would be "irresistible" if he got the call, Philbin quipped "It's come up in my mind, but not theirs. I think the audience for that show would rather have some young guy playing a vampire somewhere."

Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey Have 'Live' Halloween Costume Extravaganza (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 31st 2011 2:00PM
'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) has a tradition of having multiple-costume Halloween extravaganzas. They continued it today, with 'The Sing-Off' host Nick Lachey filling in for Regis. Heidi Klum was there to represent for Reeg, though, donning an excellent Philbin-esque get-up. Kelly and Nick cycled through a bevy of topical costumes, did skits that included cameos from Betty White and the 'Jersey Shore' cast, and also hosted a flash-mob.

Perhaps none of the costumes were as relevant to the moment than their Kardashian wedding costume, with Lachey on stilts. Other costumes included Kelly as Justin Bieber, Deena from 'Jersey Shore,' and Nancy Grace. The pair also re-created Royal Wedding. In other fun goodness, Lachey was superimposed as Ashton Kutcher on 'Two and a Half Men,' and Betty White herself popped up in the 'Jersey Shore' sketch.

Regis Strips for Snooki (VIDEO)

Usually, Snooki is the one taking her clothes off in front of the TV cameras, but on 'Live With Regis and Kelly,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) it was Regis' turn. Snooki was on to promote her new book 'Confessions of a Guidette' and hand out some guid-tastic party favors, which included a zebra-striped tie for Reeg.

Things got real Jersey after that. "Guidos usually don't wear ties, so you should like, take off your shirt, and then it'd be cool," Snooki said. As Regis eagerly obliged, standing up to take off his jacket, Snooki and Kelly Ripa couldn't believe what they were seeing. "You're getting naked?" Snooki asked.

"Let this happen," Kelly Ripa pleaded, as Regis unbuttoned his shirt and the crowd began to chant his name. "You think I'm afraid of you?" Regis asked Snooki, who seemed slightly shocked at the spectacle that was unfolding. Finally, after Kelly had egged him on by calling him a "juicehead gorilla," Regis took his shirt completely off, and put on the zebra tie.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Proudly Admit They Have a Favorite Child (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 26th 2011 3:30PM
Kelly Ripa and Mark Conseulos proudly plowed through a long-held parenting taboo on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), when they admitted they have a favorite child. It wasn't one of those spontaneous 'gotcha' moments that can happen on talk shows; the couple clearly wanted to tell everyone, including their two other children, that their son Joaquin is their favorite.

Ripa knowingly accused the audience of secretly playing favorites with their own children, as well. "You know in the event of an emergency there's one kid you'd reach for first," she joked. Consuelos said the other children are aware of their standing in the family and suggested they were to blame. "They know it, too. It's very accepted. He's just nicer to us." If Michael and Lola weren't nice before, things might be getting pretty ugly in the Consuelos/Ripa house soon.

Kelly Ripa and Kathy Griffin Eat Candy-Laced Pate on 'Iron Chef America' (VIDEO)

Iron Chef: AmericaThis week on 'Iron Chef America' (Sun., 10PM ET on FOOD) Chef Marc Forgione took on 'Top Chef' fan favorite Lee Anne Wong in Battle Halloween.

Kathy Griffin and Kelly Ripa were given the task of judging a range of dishes all prepared using the secret ingredient: Halloween candy.

We love Chef Wong, but honestly didn't think her duck liver pâté on crostini looked too appetizing: The strawberry hard candy gastrique lent it an unpleasant bloody tinge. Still, given some of the secret ingredients in the past, the judging panel got off lightly.

Ripa joked that adding candy's "a great way to get your kids to eat pâté," while über-dieter Griffin didn't manage to convince us that she really is "a pâté fanatic." Forgione's offerings, however, seemed to fare better with the ladies. Did he take home the title?
