It's hard to believe Kelly Ripa has been a permanent fixture on Live! With Regis and Kelly for ten years now! Looks like she'll be there for quite a while since the svelte co-host signed a new deal that will keep her on the show through 2017.


Although rumors are swirling about Regis Philbin's replacement as his last show of November 18 quickly arrives, the syndicated show has locked in Kelly for sure. 


Until an official announcement is made for the new Reege, according to Entertainment Weekly, the new show will have a temporary name of Live! With Kelly.


Sounds like a lot of tributes are in store for Regis for his final week. Jimmy Fallon and Don Rickles will jump-start the week of musical tributes and memorable moments as a retrospect of his past 28 seasons on the show.
