January 18, 2011

After 28 years of hosting duties Regis Philbin is retiring from Live! with Regis and Kelly! This news is why Philbin is our Caption This photo contest for the week. Keep reading to learn more about Regis exiting the infamous daytime talk show and our fabulous contest, including who is last week’s big winner!

Regis Philbin

At the end of the current season Regis Philbin is leaving Live! with Regis and Kelly a show whose success has literally been because of him. More on that in a minute but first let me tell you about Right Celebrity’s Caption This contest. It is so easy just check out the above photo of Regis and Kelly Ripa and caption it by leaving your witty fun remarks in the below comments section. Then next Tuesday check back to see if your name is in print as the big winner when a whole new picture and hot topic are posted.

Speaking of being a winner the top honor this week goes to Sandy for the second week in a row. This is what Sandy had to say about the picture of Holly Madison, which you can check out again here if you forgot what it looked like.

I’m PHAT, pretty hot and tempting

We all know that is exactly what Madison is thinking even though she looks like a disaster, so well put Sandy.

Back to the topic at hand which is good old Reg is calling it quits, I seriously thought he would be in that chair till the day he died. It was his show, he grew it and turned it in to what it is today. Back in 1983 it was a local New York show called The Morning Show, Kathy Lee Gifford came on board in 1985. Then in 1998 the show went national and became Live! with Regis and Kathy which became a staple for morning talk shows. As you all know Kathy left in 2001 and Ripa joined Regis shortly after. Throughout it all however Philbin was the constant even when he took time off for his triple bypass surgery you just knew he was coming back. I am a fan of the show, Regis you will be missed.

Regis Philbin’s retirement from Live! with Regis and Kelly is why he is our Caption This photo contest for the week. So get captioning!

    “Since we’re talking about scandals, I’d like to point out that Regis is not fired, he’s just on special assignment. Yeah. Yeah, and we love each other. It is love. It is love.”

    True quote!!
