Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa remain tight-lipped when it comes to reports that Philbin has plans to step down from the daytime talk show, which he co-hosts with the diminutive perky blonde. Additionally, Kelly has been keeping mum about any possible plans to have Regis pass the torch to her hunky husband, Mark Consuelos. Tommy Garrett of Canyon News reports that an anonymouse source revealed that Consuelos is actually against the idea. After having had spent nearly ten years working with Ripa on-screen on ABC’s “All My Children,” Mark is of the opinion that the couple’s marriage would do much better without the added strain of having to work together. These two are so tiny and adorable, it’s distracting to try and write about them without wanting to put them in my pocket and take them home and dress them up in various outfits. Did this just get weird? This just got weird. I’m going to stop typing now.
