Live With Regis & Kathy Lee & Kelly

One of the joys of not having to be at work until 10:00 am is being able to catch the "Host Chat" segment on "Live with Regis & Kelly". They sit down and talk to each other about what's going on in their lives for the first 15-20 minutes of the show, and it's often hilarious. There is something comforting about checking in with them every morning before leaving to catch the subway.

Once upon a time I was NOT a fan of the show. Shortly after moving to NYC in the early 90's, I got a visit from Gerry, one of my very best friends from college. She was a big fan of the show (then "Live with Regis & Kathy Lee") and I was able to get us in.

One of the things they do on the show every morning is give away a prize to a viewer who has called in over the phone. After he/she wins or loses, the caller picks a number - and the studio audience member who is sitting in the seat with that number also wins a prize. I sat down in lucky seat number 13 and the show began.

Sure enough, the caller picked number 13 and I won a some lovely Baccarat crystal - which I promptly gave away as gifts. I've been a fan of the show ever since.

Today's show marked "Live's" 20th Anniversay and featured Kathy Lee Gifford appearing for the first time since she left seven years ago.

Happy Anniversary!

Kathi Lee left in 2000 I think. I know Kelly started in 2001.
