Ode to You, Regis Philbin

At 80 years old, Regis Philbin retires.

This week has been bitter sweet for me. I love watching Regis, and for those who don't get my obsession, he is just the funniest, little old man (Next to my Poppy). He is sarcastic, and witty, and I wish I knew him personally.

This week he has been on multiple interviews and TV segments. I've been loving all his extra face time, but today was the last of hosting his morning show, Live with Regis and Kelly. For now, the show will be renamed Live with Kelly. No co-host has been announced. I know there has been buzz about Jerry Seinfeld hosting, but from what I gather...he is JUST the first guest host. Thank God. I am not sure how I feel about him. But, to be fair, I probably won't be happy with anyone they choose.
How can you NOT love this face? Nice teeth, I might add. Not sure if they are real or not.

Regis wrote a book, "How I Got This Way." I will for sure be purchasing that puppy (as soon as my bank account fills back up, just paid my first school loan today...D-Press-Ing).

Any who...today's final episode was extremely sad. I am currently sitting on my couch with tissues and trying to calm myself down. I am 100% not joking when I tell you that I was crying 3 minutes into the show. My lip was quivering, and still is. I was gasping for breath in  between tears streaming down my face. What is wrong with me? If you didn't have the opportunity to see the show, they did a video montage with the song "Smile" playing in the background (I will never be able to listen to that song again without crying). They also had a performance by RENT. Can you say tear jerker?

I am not crazy, and I am a little embarrassed by the amount of tears shed today, but it was extremely sad, and I will miss Regis Philbin very, very, very, much. I don't know what I will do without you.

Here's to you Reeg!
