Kelly Ripa Says ‘There Were Good Days & Bad Days’ Working With Regis Philbin: It Wasn’t ‘A Cakewalk’

Kelly Ripa is getting candid about her complicated experience working with Regis Philbin. In a new interview with People, the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host reflected on the ups and downs of her time co-hosting her show with the late TV legend for more than a decade. Kelly told the outlet of those ten years, “There were good and bad days. I don’t want to feel like I’m slamming anyone or that I’m being disrespectful. But I also want people to know it was not a cakewalk. It took years to earn my place there and earn things that are routinely given to the men I worked with.”
