    When is Kelly ” NO TALENT ” Ripa going to apologie for the comment she made about pitbulls

  • Shirley

    You are right about no talent. Plus her co-host is just as bad. I can’t understand why it is so popular. I personally watch “The Doctors” on Fox at that time. I have learned so much from watching it as they talk about all sorts of medical issues, etc.

  • Rick

    I enjoy it more than when that condescending no talent Regis Philbin was on there.

    After Kathie Lee left I never liked either Kelly or Regis. Now I do like Kelly and Michael both. And evidently a lot of people feel the same way since the ratings are higher in some categories than they have been in years.

  • Helen

    I liked Regis and Kathy Lee better than any that followed, but still usually watch when I’m home, mainly because they don’t talk politics, just do entertainment. But when I turned on today and saw Michelle Obama on, and saw how Kelly fawned over her, so sickenly, I will turn on my DVR of Rachael Ray during that time now.
