The Reason Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin Don't Talk Anymore

Split As he explained'She got very offended when I left their show noting that'She thought I was leaving because of her' but that'I was leaving because I was getting older and that wasn't right for me anymore

During an interview on Larry King Now, Philbin dropped the bombshell that Ripa has refused to even speak to him since he quit Live! in 2011.

Despite hosting the show for almost three decades, Philbin has never been asked to return for a guest appearance.

Philbin and Ripa co-hosted ABC's "Live With Regis and Kelly" for 11 years. "I was leaving because I was getting older and that wasn't right for me anymore", Philbin said.

Philbin elaborated, claiming that Ripa "took it personally" when he left. "That was [years] ago".

"Never once did they ask me to go back".

Philbin's final show aired in 2011.

Regis Philbin on "Larry King Now" on Tuesday, February 14.

"Yeah, I think so", Philbin replied.

Philbin said on the day of their final episode together, he told Ripa that "Every morning, I'll think about this", per People. Would it be every night?

When asked if he would consider being the face of another talk show, Philbin had many questions.

That being said, Regis isn't sure he'd return to host a show full time. "I do miss it". Live! with Regis and Kelly earned the youthful exclamation point: ratings skyrocketed, and Regis and Kelly had an entertaining respected father/enthusiastic daughter chemistry.

As you probably already know, Regis is not the only co-host who has a broken relationship with Kelly.

"Not really, no", said Philbin. "I learned a lot from her, though".
