Kelly Ripa Admits: I Don't Talk to Regis Philbin

by at .  Updated at .

When Regin Philbin left her television side in November 2011, Kelly Ripa was reduced to tears.

But the talk show host made a surprising admission about her former co-anchor on April 10 at a party for the Most Powerful People in Media list.

"I haven't seen him," Ripa said when asked whether she keeps in touch with Regis.

Pretty Kelly Ripa

But Ripa was mostly in a joking mood at the event, comparing Philbin with Michael Strahan by saying:

"Well, they’re both incredible storytellers. They are both fiercely competitive, and they’re both incredible football players."

Somewhat randomly, Kelly also touched on Anthony Weiner, who is considering a run for Mayor of New York.

"I say why not... I love a political Cinderella story."
