Awww but what about ‘Parks and Rec’?
Rob Lowe just wrapped up two days of guest hosting with Kelly Ripa on ‘Live With ____ and Kelly’. (Since Regis left the show, there’s been a gaping hole we’re all wondering who will end up filling.)
Turns out, Robe Lowe might end up filling that hole. I should really think of another way of saying that sentence. But I won’t.
According to TMZ, an ABC source says head honchos “loved the chemistry between [Rob and Kelly].” Network exectutives have reportedly talked to Lowe’s reps about making it a permanent job. But Lowe, who already stars in Parks and Recreation remains non-committal.
TMZ just shot Rob leaving NYC at JFK airport. When their camera guys asked him, “do you think you could live in New York?” Lowe responded:
"We were just talking about that. I love New York. I love the energy. It would be a change of pace. I'm a California boy, but It could be fun."
Andy Cohen, Carson Kressley, and Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, have all guest hosted on the show and are possible contenders as a Regis replacement.
TV Guide lists Cohen as a decent contendor because he “had good chemistry with Ripa.” The only problem?
“He’s not as recognized a name outside the Bravo universe.”
Carson is praised as a “natural improviser” but the mag doesn’t see him leading the conversation.
And as for Consuelos, who wants to watch a husband and wife host a TV show together? What is this, Jim Bakker’s PTL Club?
