Kelly Ripa Recalls ‘Good Days And Bad Days’  With Regis Philbin

Fill in some text Speaking  to People magazine to promoteher new book,  “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories,”

Ripa called Philbin “the world’s best storyteller”  

But Ripa explained that it was a struggle to get along with her co-host initially.

She claimed to have been treated much differently  from Philbin, even though they were supposedly  equals

"I don't want to feel like I'm slamming anyone or that  I'm being disrespectful.

But I also want people to know it was not a cakewalk

It took years to earn my  place there and earn  things that are routinely  givento the menI worked with,

Including an office and  a place to put my computer."

Few talk show hosts are as iconic as the duo that was Kelly Ripa and the late  Regis Philbin.
