"I had no idea songs like It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year bummed out people."

Tom, for those who spend more than a few hours at a time in a shopping mall (the employees, for example), hearing the same Xmas carols over and over and over for weeks on end is akin to spending time in a re-education camp. POWs have more rights under the Geneva Convention than mall workers.

Tom, you don't have to be a Clay-mate, disgruntled or otherwise, to find Kelly Ripa annoying. And she does talk too much, interrupting people. Other guests have mentioned it, including Priscilla Presley. Could it be you are just a blind Ripa fan?

I agree that Kelly Ripa is pulling that show down.I really enjoy Regis but have never been able to get used to Kelly....I sometimes feel sorry for Regis because the man has a great sense of humour and is good with the guests.....Kelly.. not so much.

I like Kelly Ripa and I like Clay Aiken. She does like to run the show when Regis is gone, and not let her co-host say a lot. Unless it is someone she really likes. She does tend to interrupt people a lot. I see her interrupt Regis all the time.You may not see it because men are a little ga-ga over her. You only see what you want to see. LOL

i used to watch Regis and Kelly long time ago but got turned off by Kelly Ripa. she interrupted her guest all the time and make the conversation about her and her only..
it's has nothing to do with Clay Aiken and i don't think i ever seen him co-hosting with her.

I was at the Live with R&K taping the day Clay Aiken co-hosted. I didn't even know he was going to be thre. It was a great show. Lots of fun. During the commercial break, Clay appeared to tell Kelly he was sorry if she took his joke wrong, and she was happy and smiling and hugging him. They seemed to get along great. Then the following Monday she verbally blindsided him on national TV. I call that a hypocrite. Or in her case -- a Ripacrite. You don't have to be a disgrunted fan of anyone to see that.

Kelly likes to be the center of attention..it's all about her.When Clay A.was a co-host he upstaged her and this did not go over too well with Kelly. Regis has to be a saint to put up with her. My husband and I were watching the show one morning and he became so frustrated with Kelly always interrupting Regis, he changed the channel. Why is she still on? I'm sure Regis could get someone who shows him the respect he deserves. I resent the remark that you have to be a clay-mate to find Kelly annoying. I'm not a Clay-mate but I did find Clay to be a very intertaing co-host.He acted as though he had been doing a talk show for a long time...very respectful to guests and really listened to what they had to say.Unlike Kelly he didn't interrupt the guests and asked insightful questions.

Not understanding Noth being hot, but to each his own for sure. Give me D'Onofrio any day. As for Ripa I loved her spunk on All My Children, loved her chemistry with Mark, but she just plain yanks my chain when it comes to Regis and Kelly. She is cute, she is petite, but she just never, ever shuts up. I know the schtick has been that way with Regis and Kathy Lee, but Kathy Lee was more respectful, Kelly just seems to think she is the boss and the show is all about her. Sorry, I wish she was back on All My Children making babies with Mark.

Why does Kelly Ripa constantly interrupt people?

What a load of huie these comments are. Kelly Ripa handles Reeg and vice versa great. She is hilarious and lights up my day. Get a life people. She has superb comic timing and is very very funny. Lighten up!

Janelle = blind Ripa fan #2

Bring back Kathy Lee; at least that gal had some class & could take a joke. She would have probably laughed at Aiken's kidding & then done the same to him later in the show, not whine & pout about it 3 days later.

You know what, if you didn't want to "be the center of attention", then you probably wouldn't be on a talk or entertainment show. IT'S WHAT THEY DO!

Actors, entertainers, celebritries all have outsized egos, because it takes that to move ahead in the business. You can think a guy like Regis is "nice" and Kelly Ripa is selfish, but at the core they are all alike. I've met a bunch of these people in my life and it's a common thread.

I have been saying this for years. I wonder why they have guests on as she won't let them talk. Everything has to be about her and her kids, especially JACK KEEN. She is obnoxious and gelman and her both should be fired. He constantly laughs at everything she says. The show will go off the air in a month if they keep her.
She acts and sounds like a 10 year old.

You know nothing about a talk show with guests. The guests should be allowed to talk as that is why they are on?? DUH!!

kelly is so very obnoxious and has to be the center of attention constantly.

Jannelle; you must be detached from life. Sane people don't interrupt everybody all the time. kelly is horrible and will kill the show when Regis leaves.
