Default Regis Philbin in Moncton, NB !

Regis croons, Metro swoons

TV talk show host rocks casino in first N.B. appearance

by brent mazerolle
Times & transcript staff



With all the talk lately about whether or not Regis Philbin would be eating seafood when he came to the Maritimes, probably no one thought to ask if he liked maple syrup.



VIKTOR PIVOVAROV/TIMES & TRANSCRIPT


Regis Philbin acknowledges the crowd as he takes the stage to perform with his 22-piece orchestra at Casino New Brunswick last night.


Happily, he told his audience at his first-ever New Brunswick appearance last night at Casino N.B. that he did, he was just worried about the health effects of eating all those pancakes with it.

He and his wife Joy will be swimming in the stuff, thanks to Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc, who went backstage to present the entertainer with a jug of the maple syrup the City of Moncton produces from its own trees around the Turtle Creek Reservoir.

And while another commitment meant Mayor LeBlanc couldn't stick around to see it, the City of Moncton syrup provided some sticky schtick to get the show off to a great start.

"Everywhere I went today, people were giving me a little bottle of maple syrup," Regis said, pulling one of the little bottles from the left trouser pocket of his tuxedo.

"And tonight I had a meeting with the Mayor, LeBlanc.
They told me, the mayor's going to give you the key to the city.' Well, guess what the mayor gave me? A big bottle of maple syrup..."
With that, Regis tried to pull the second, bigger jug from the right pocket of his trousers, and it got stuck.
"Honest to God, I can't get it out!" he cried, before turning to a woman in the front row to say, "Don't get excited, lady."
"A $3,000 tux here and I'm going to tear it to shreds because of a bottle of maple syrup!" he complained.

That's when the lady, who was indeed pretty excited, offered to come up on stage and help.
Regis took her up on the offer and soon Dieppe's Jeanette Martin was nearly stealing the show, and dazzling her famous new friend with her French accent.

"You've got to be gentle with me," he told her.

"Is Joy around?" she asked, not missing a beat. "How much time do we have?"

"This one's been around," he told his audience, before asking Jeannette,
"How much time do you need?"

Morning TV's favourite host decided it was time to cool things down a bit.
"Are you married?"

"Thirty-six years," Jeannette admitted with a smile.

"What does your husband do?" he asked.

"We're not sure."

It took some doing, but Jeannette ultimately got the big bottle out of Regis's pants.
It took more doing, but Regis finally got the enthusiastic Jeannette offstage.

Alone again onstage, not counting Symphony New Brunswick's 21 members as well as pianist Stanley Yerlow, a familiar face to anyone who watches Live! With Regis and Kelly, Regis told stories, told jokes and dished on his relationships with folks like Kelly Ripa and David Letterman.
He had already introduced himself as "Donald Trump's poorest best friend and Joy Philbin's fifth and final husband."

Of Kelly, he joked, "she's a beautiful woman, but if only she'd lose five pounds." He also said as pretty as Kelly is, her husband Mark Consuelos just might be prettier.

Speaking of his regular morning co-host, Regis also took time to plug his potential guest co-host Mandy MacDonald of Moncton's C103.
Mandy, in a contest to guest host on Live! With Regis and Kelly, and last night's emcee, met Regis backstage before the Casino New Brunswick concert, wearing a Live! With Regis and Mandy T-shirt.

"I can't wait to see how Kelly feels about that," Regis said. "I'll show her Mandy's picture and she'll say, yeah, she's the right one.'"
Most singers chat a little bit with their audiences between songs. Philbin sang a little bit between chats.

Judging from the reaction of his audience, they would have had it no other way.

Regis Philbin did Regis Philbin bang on last night, meaning the veteran performer and TV personality is so iconic, his character so much a part of our culture and our home lives, that you just sort of know what he'll have to say about any particular topic and how he'll react to any particular situation.

And yet somehow last night it always felt fresh and funny, especially because decades of live television have made him master of the ad-lib.
He was also accessible, wandering through the crowd, and even singing a duet of You Made Me Love You with a member of the audience - a rather large, male member of the audience who was a great sport and not a bad crooner himself.

Joy Philbin, redefining beauty for 69-year-old women everywhere, finally stepped onstage 45 minutes into the show, rocking a form-fitting strapless purple gown in a mermaid silhouette.

She took over the other half of the duets from there, thank you very much, and an appreciative Moncton audience ate it all up, especially when the Philbins took a moment to dance together.
The music, the laughter and the love - and the maple syrup - were all hits.

"What can you do with the key, really?" Joy asked, when Regis mock-complained again about His Worship's gift of syrup. "That you can enjoy."

I got a news alert saying George Steinbrenner, owner of Yankees had died of a heart attack and Regis who is a good friend of his mentioned it as he closed the show today. I wonder if he will head back to NY before their time in Prince Edward Island is over..I think they are only there till Thursday and then home with the day off on Friday.

As I understood it Monday & Tuesday's show was live, from 10:00 to 11:00 am. Then Monday @ 12:30 pm they taped the show that is going to air tomorrow. And today @ 12:30 pm they were taping the show which will air on Thursday. They should be all done & Regis is probably in New-York by now ??

Not as long as there's a players' union.

i think PEI paid some sort of fee for having the show there (in order to stimulate tourism further?)...i think Toronto did same when we had Conan here...but will still haven't broken even on that...perhaps that masturbating bear scared off a few travelers

i too love PEI...and here are a few of my fave exports from the area, who don't (or didn't, in their 70's heydays) get much fanfare

some wonderful smooth and cheesy old sounds from these boys, including this one:

and this Tobias (ok, he's from New Brunswick) classic, helped out by another Maritimer, Terry Kelly (Nova Scotian) at CNIB event

Tobias also wrote this Bells classic, and it actually got USA airplay/charted

ok, jjo....I'll tape those 2 shows...hey, will Kelly be wearing red pig tails? lol

Same as Char I rarely watch it.

This was a tourism promotion thing man !

They said on the news this morning that the cost was a little under $1million dollars something like $875.000 give or take a few thousand to bring the show to the Island.

Regis & Kelly's visit huge' for P.E.I.: minister

Published Wednesday July 14th, 2010


Live! with Regis and Kelly wrapped up its broadcasts in Prince Edward Island yesterday, but the province's tourism industry is hoping the hit duo's visit will have a long-lasting impact.



On Monday, after the first show from Charlottetown aired, Prince Edward Island shot into the Top 10 Google searches of the day in the United States, staying there through yesterday.

Tourism and Culture Minister Robert Vessey says the show's visit was huge for his province, both this week and in the long-term.

Vessey says it was well worth the government's $800,000 investment to bring the show to its shores.

Kelly Ripa planning return trip to P.E.I

Published Friday July 16th, 2010


Regis and Kelly wrap up P.E.I. broadcasts with thanks for Canadian hospitality

THE CANADIAN PRESS



CHARLOTTETOWN - Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa wrapped up nearly a week of shows from Prince Edward Island with a beach bash and many thanks for all the Canadian hospitality.

The hosts of "Live! with Regis and Kelly" began their final episode with a salute from two CF-18 fighter planes, which circled the cheering crowd.
Thousands have turned out for the duo's four special tapings, which took place over the course of two days on Charlottetown's Confederation Landing Park.

Throughout the visit, the morning duo gushed over the island's lush scenery and fresh seafood, with Ripa saying on yesterday's episode that she was already planning a return.

Guests for the final broadcast included "Sex and the City" hunk John Corbett, whose girlfriend Bo Derek was sitting in the front row.
"24" star Elisha Cuthbert also brought NHL boyfriend Dion Phaneuf, and the pop band OneRepublic performed.

Tourism officials are hoping publicity from the shows - which aired Monday through Thursday - will lead to a boost in tourism. Earlier in the week, the province cracked the Top 10 Google searches in the United States, climbing to No. 2 at one point.

The popular U.S. morning-show stars were to resume broadcasts from the show's home in New York on Friday.
Before leaving, Philbin said he was grateful for the warm welcome they received in Canada's smallest province.

"Honest to God we really are taken by Prince Edward Island, and all of you for being so hospitable," Philbin said to hoots from the audience.

"It's one of those places where Mark and I are planning our return trip before we leave," Ripa added, referring to her husband, actor Mark Consuelos.

it's a bad news/good news thing..good that others know how beautiful it is...bad that the island may not continue to be as peaceful and serene as previous visitors liked or even as the inhabitants like..
It is a beautiful place tho.

Yes Char I understand what your saying but I guess more visitors is what they wanted, so if bringing that U.S. show to the Island doesn't do it then maybe nothing will ???

Beautiful day here today so I have to go mow that darn lawn again... while whistling some Gord songs.
