Will a Woman Replace Regis Philbin on 'Live!'?
Replacing Regis With a Woman?
How do you replace Regis Philbin? Well, you can't, but that's the question that the producers of 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' are slowly starting to ask.
"He's Regis, a showbiz legend but at 78 years old, he isn't getting any younger. There has to be internal talk about finding a replacement," a TV insider tells me.
And although the show seems to have been testing many great potential new hosts out while Regis underwent his recent successful hip replacement, none of them have been able to fill his huge shoes. That's led some producers to argue that trying to find a man to replace Regis is impossible, and that the only option is to find a woman.
"Kelly is fantastic with other women. She's a girl's girl. Having her co-host with another lady would be the perfect solution to the problem. That way you avoid any compressions to the masterful Philbin," a TV executive tells me.
That seems like a good idea to me! Does anyone have Paula Abdul's number handy?
January Gives SAGs the Cold Shoulder for Jeremy Piven
Silly, silly January Jones. SAG awards sources tell me the 'Mad Men' actress who plays Don Draper's wife skipped flying into Los Angeles last weekend to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards because she "wasn't feeling well." So you can imagine what SAG voters thought when pictures emerged of Jones out with rumored boyfriend Jeremy Piven the same evening as the awards.
"She blew it big time," a TV insider tells me. "'Mad Men' won for Best Ensemble Cast and she would rather spend the evening flirting with Jeremy Piven!"
Give the girl a second chance, SAG. Maybe she was too sick to travel, and Mr. Piven just took her out for some chicken soup? Hopefully love cures everything.
