Kelly to Regis:

You're WHAT?!?

1/18/2011 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with "Live! with Regis & Kelly" tell TMZ ... Regis Philbin blindsided Kelly Ripa with his retirement announcement today ... telling her less than 15 minutes before they went on the air.

Regis and Kelly

We're told Kelly was "stunned" that Regis didn't tell her well in advance.  But one source connected with the show tells us, "She wasn't upset."

Our sources say Regis felt if he talked about it before making the announcement, it would have leaked out.

Watching a Man, Regis who really needs to take that retirement.
Too many mean moments & than an apology. Hurt already has been done. TOO much for Kelly as his cover-up.
Feel so sorry for M. Gelman...He is too well educated to take your abuse Regis. Gelman has shown Regis so much respect, as he was taught. Please do not try the Don Rickles on people.
Joy & you need to visit your Grandchildren.

Kelly is doing just fine, she kept the show going anyway. Guest co-hosts make the show pretty interesting. Whom ever fans like the most, might be the one to stay... just sayin'!
