He is an absolute legend! I loved Regis! I was 9 or 10 one summer when I was out on summer vacation and there he and Cathy Lee were. I watched everyday that summer. He had a spice for life, and was just plain like-able! He also had a smash hit with "Who Wants to be a Millionaire".That show still plays today. To say I'll miss him is an understatement. Thank You Regis Philbin.

Happily, Kathy Lee comforted Joy by promising to sing at the funeral, prompting Joy to say "The hell you will".

I guess that's better than Kelly Ripas typically passive-aggressive snide remark, "Who's Regis Philbin?"
