Regis Philbin

Description

This enhanced book includes four exclusive videos of Regis featuring his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.

Sure, he’s an excitable guy. Sure, he loves to complain. But Regis Philbin loves life . . . and with the wildly unpredictable one he’s lead so far, who wouldn’t? After five decades in show business—and nearly 17,000 unforgettable hours on television—he has a lifetime’s worth of stories to share as well as lessons learned from extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman; Donald Trump; George Clooney; Howard Stern; Jack Nicholson; legendary Notre Dame coaches Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly “Pippa” Ripa; as well as his own lovely wife, Joy—to name just a few.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 12, 2011 – In his much-anticipated memoir, talk show host Philbin discusses his decades-long career in television and pays homage to his greatest influences (including his favorite sports teams). The beginning of the book traces his journey from the Bronx to the University of Notre Dame, a subsequent stint in the Navy, and his first hosting gigs, most notably on The Joey Bishop Show. Philbin notes some of his most memorable interviews from those early days, including "king of all the gossip hounds" Walter Winchell and a young Bill Cosby. His most well-known co-hosts receive dedicated chapters where he describes in detail Joey Bishop's sour temperament and his genuine fondness for Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly Ripa. Later, he shares stories about Hollywood stars, recounting a party at George Clooney's villa at Lake Como and watching a Lakers game courtside with Jack Nicholson. Each chapter of this well-written, fun book ends with a few pieces of relevant advice for the reader, rounding out a work that fans of Regis or general celebrity gossip will surely enjoy.

What a honor !

I feel honor that I was able to read and understand Regis more that he had down times in his life but he never gave up. I had no idea the people he knew and they befriended him with open arms and a open heart. He has lead a full life and he has more to come for sure. I hope he writes about his next step in his life. He is funny a true entertainer and friend to everyone. I miss seeing him daily but after reading the book I understand why it was time to MOVE ON ! Thank you Regis.

How I got this way Regis philbin

If you love Regis on the air, you will love this book. I truly believe, what you see is what you get. What a wonderful human being. How lucky were we for having the privilege of inviting him to our home daily and now he confirms his "realness" in a book. Good job, reeg. S Merritt.
