It's just so strange that he and Kelly barely talked to each other behind the scenes yet you couldn't tell it when the camera started rolling.

For years I loved watching Regis and Kathie Lee with a cup of coffee. Regis was a generous and kind person and truly enjoyable to watch. I'm sure he received a huge welcome in heaven from his friends like Don Rickles and other greats who have gone before us. Rest in peace, Regis. 🕊️🕊️🕊️

I loved Regis Philbin as if he was my uncle, when it came to Daytime TV with Kathie Lee and Kelly, as well as wife Joy, and also hosting “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” during primetime. It came as such a shock to me. Nothing will ever be the same without the man himself. Thanks for all the laughs, the love, the hours, and the moments we shared together. Farewell and rest easy, Reegemaster.

Love and prayers to his family. He and Kathie we're my coffee morning routine. I loved how they're crazy bantering always involved their families. I somehow felt a part of that as my little family was just starting.

Class act! I ALWAYS enjoyed watching this guy!!
A lot of mornings spent drinking coffee with Regis and having a laugh. 4 of those years was with my dad before he passed. Thanks for the memories.
I recall in an episode of Regis & Kathie Lee where he spoke of his experience guest-starring on a prime-time TV drama, playing a character not far removed from himself. The biggest challenge he had during the filming of that TV show was following a script; as he was so accustomed to his extemporaneous style while performing in-front of the camera . . . he admitted it made for a real struggle when he had to memorize his lines for that TV show.

Funniest skit I saw was when Regis fell down into a NY street open sewer manhole.. A huge NY rat stood in equal height to him down there. Both knew immediately what to do as New Yorkers. They bear grabbed each other in a fight. I am from Florida. Gives me pause to visit yall up there. LOL
Regis was a national treasure

Dear friend, our Savior Jesus Christ is always with you. These were actually the last words He spoke before ascending into heaven. Jesus continue the proclaim this promise to all who will listen. People respond to His continual Presence in various ways. Most Christians accept this teaching as truth but ignore it in their daily living. Some ill-taught or wounded believers fear (and may even resent) Jesus awareness of all they do, say, and think. A few people center their lives around this glorious promise and find themselves blessed beyond expectations.

When the Presence of Yeshua (Jesus Christ) our Lord and Savior is the focal point of your consciousness, all the pieces of your life fall into place. As you gaze at Him through the eyes of your heart, you can see the world around you from HIS perspective. The fact that Jesus is with you makes every moment of your life meaningful.

Dear one, say the following 4 words "I trust you Jesus!" in response to in every situation and aspect of your life. Trust the only Way, Truth, and Life....Trust Jesus by receiving Him. I invite you to receive our Creator THIS VERY MOMENT by first acknowledging that you are a sinner in need of our Savior. Welcome Abba YHWH (Father God) through Yeshua (Jesus the Christ) into your life. Receive grace by believing in Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross, His death, burial and resurrection.

Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior whom died on the cross for the sins of ALL human-kind, arose in the 3rd day and currently sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. You will then be justified in salvation and forever blessed with His abundant love by the Holy Spirit! It will be the GREATEST decision you will ever make. ❤️❤️❤️

Regis was a good man. But do your rabbit hole work and learn about adrenchrome. It is a drug the Hollywood elite use. It is gotten from torturing young children. The world is ruled by pedophiles and psychopaths. Watch youtube Fall of the Cabal parts 1-10 your tube. Be open.
