Guess Who Might Be Replacing Regis Philbin

Ever since Regis Philbin announced that he was retiring from Live With Regis and Kelly, there have been rumors about his possible replacement.

All the rumors have been of male co-hosts, but apparently the frontrunner is a woman.

According to Popeater, Lisa Rinna is reportedly the top choice to replace Regis.

“Lisa has proved she can do the job,” an insider said.

“She has co-hosted the show with Regis, filled in for Joy Behar on her show and was even better than Billy Bush when she stepped into his shoes on Access Hollywood’s new daytime show.”

That would be an awesome gig for Lisa! The only problem would be that Kelly and Lisa are both high-strung and we might actually get dizzy watching the two together. I'm still rooting for Kelly's husband to get the gig!
