Friday is the final day of Live with Regis and Kelly. The show will go on, but Regis is doing his last show. Some say the reason is his greed. I don't know what the real story is, but I wouldn't doubt it.
I heard advertisers didn't want to support a show that had someone in their 80's on it. I don't know how true that is, but it wouldn't surprise me if advertisers played a role in Regis leaving the show.
