The host of 'Live with Regis and Kelly' reveals he has filmed for an unscripted project, but wants to see the edited version before he says yes to it.
After quitting "Live with Regis and Kelly" on November 18, Regis Philbin may still grace small screen regularly with reality series. The 80-year-old comedian recently hinted that he is "in talks" regarding some new projects and he is interested in doing a reality show.
"There are several things that interest me. You know these reality shows? I would love to do a real reality show where Regis goes out," he revealed on the Wednesday (September 7) episode of the "Live" show, before adding, "I did a little pilot for somebody last week in L.A."
Philbin went on sharing that he was followed by cameras when visiting an eye doctor for floaters in his eyes. "So they took the camera up, and when (the doctor) would leave the room, I'd say, 'This is ridiculous! Why can't they give me a pill or a shot to get rid of this!?' Then I went to do Craig Ferguson and whatever happened, happened," the former "America's Got Talent" host said.
While he is awaiting the edited version before deciding if he will fully commit to the show or not, Philbin has already had a name for it. "This Week With Regis!" he gushed, "You like that?" However, he would take some time off befor jumping on a new project, claiming, "That's why I haven't made the decision yet."
Joking that he has one thing to worry about doing a reality show, Philbin enthused, "How do you compete with the Kardashians? Regis on the street - I'm no Kim Kardashian." He additionally revealed he was also offered to do a sitcom, but he is not interested because "it's so time-consuming."
