Regis Philbin only wants one person to fill his seat when he leaves LIVE with Regis And Kelly soon and that is …..Tom Bergeron. But, unless the show moves to Kansas, Tom’s not interested. While on the subject of Tom Bergeron and the rumors he might be dancing, Regis says he won’t be heading to the ballroom either. Here is more in a take from Access Hollywood. These two crack me up!
“I can’t, I work on the West Coast, that show is on the East Coast,” Tom told Access. “If we could maybe do it in Kansas — do everything in Kansas, then I’d be good. Yeah, yeah something like that.”
So while Tom won’t be stepping into Regis’ shoes any time soon, Regis also won’t be crossing over to Tom’s ballroom.
“No, I don’t think so, it’s too much work,” Regis said of those continuing rumors he could head to the “DWTS” competition. “I’ve talked to the people who have been on the show. They’re all banged up, they need new hips, new knees I’ve done that — don’t want to do it again.”
