EXCLUSIVE: They may be preparing to say goodbye as co-hosts of Live with Regis and Kelly, but Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin are planning a new collaboration beyond the syndicated daily talk show. I hear Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos are developing a TV special through their Milojo Prods. to star Philbin. Details about the project are sketchy, but it is said to showcase Philbin’s abilities as a storyteller. Molojo has already met with several prominent directors for the special. Contrary to a Page Six report that Ripa was pissed at Philbin for exploring other projects, it seems like she might be part of them. In January, Philbin announced that he would leave Live after 25 years, the last 10 with Ripa as co-host.
