Kelly Ripa: I Don't Keep in Touch with Regis Philbin

For people who worked side-by-side for more than a decade, Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin might not be as close as you'd think.
When asked whether she keeps in touch with her former Live! co-host, Ripa told The Hollywood Reporter, "I haven't seen him, no."

Ripa did add that Philbin's replacement, ex-NFL player Michael Strahan, has a lot in common with the 81-year-old. "Well, they're both incredible storytellers. They are both fiercely competitive, and they're both incredible football players," Ripa joked.
For those who have missed Philbin since his departure in November 2011, he will host Rush Hour, a new Fox Sports show that will premiere this summer.
