Kelly Ripa officially introduced Michael Stahan as Regis Philbin’s permanent replacement yesterday. Michael has been a guest co-host 20 times. But his first appearance came in February of 2008, when he was a regular guest after winning the Super Bowl with the New York Giants. On that episode, Regis asked Michael what was planning to do after football, and Michael said he'd like to replace Regis, to make it the "Live! With Michael and Kelly" show. Regis responded, "Well, you never know who's going to sit here next," and Kelly said, "I like the sound of that!" You can watch the video of the whole show intro right HERE. Kelly introduces Michael at 3:15 and shows the clip from 2008 at 6:55.
Terrence J, former host of BET’s "106 & Park," has landed another high-profile hosting job. He has been announced as the permanent anchor of "E! News," along with Giuliana Rancic, who has hosted since 2005.
Monday night was the finale of VH1's "Love And Hip Hop Atlanta" and in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, it seems two of the women will be fired before next season begins. The show says Rasheeda will be let go because there's not enough excitement in her life and she just doesn't seem to fit in. A source said she's too boring. And the other one getting the boot (sorry Nicodemus) is Mama Dee. The source said, "Mama Dee is interesting, but she's a little too much. Mama Dee was one of the reasons that people were complaining." It's not a done deal yet. In fact, some execs say that Mama Dee may be better off with her own show.
In today’s Hot Couple Alert, Chris Evans and Minka Kelly might be getting back together again. And Eva Longoria and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez could be dating. Once source claims they went grocery shopping together and had a date night in the West Village where she wore a blond wig to avoid being recognized.
