Regis Philbin Confuses Kate Gosselin With Direct Question
Daytime television isn’t usually known for hard pressing questions. It’s usually nothing more than a glorified puff piece. So when a host asks an interesting question, it makes news.
Regis Philbin has done just that when talking to “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ star Kate Gosselin, who is making the media rounds in New York City. While taping an interview Tuesday, Philbin just came out and asked her if she thought she and Jon would ever get back together, according to the New York Daily News.
Probably taken off guard because of an army of protective publicists, Kate fumbled before answering, “I can’t and won’t answer that. I keep certain things private, and that’s one.”
Why Kate? You are on television doing interviews and this is what people want to know? It’s a legitimate question, you can’t give an honest answer?
Well, Regis decided to throw back his – admittedly uneducated – opinion.
“I think you [and your husband] will get back together and live happily ever after,” Philbin said. “I think everything is going to work itself out — he’ll say he’s sorry, that he loves you and everything will be good.”
The show then went to commercial with an apparently shocked Kate.
Maybe that second part was inappropriate but Regis was just being positive. It just so happens he decided to ignore that Jon has been seen across the globe with various different women while she was home with eight kids.
