REGIS BRINGING BACK KATHIE LEE

Published on: December 28, 2001

It's war! "Live with Regis and Kelly" hosts Regis Philbin and newcomer Kelly Ripa are at odds over secret plans to get Kelly a show of her own.

Regis already felt stabbed in the back by his bosses when ABC announced his show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" might be canceled after this season.

Now Regis feels doubly betrayed and has hatched a plot of his own: To bring Kathie Lee Gifford back to his morning talk show!

The issue that is on sale now details Regis' anger at his bosses, his tense on-air exchanges with Kelly, his secret meetings with Kathie Lee . . . and more.
