Regis Philbin Says Disney Screwed Kelly Ripa

Breaking News

Regis Philbin still has Kelly Ripa's back ... he says his old co-host got the shaft in the whole Michael Strahan deal.

Regis spoke to photogs in NYC and made it clear Kelly should've gotten a heads up about Disney's plan to move Strahan from 'Live' to 'GMA.' It's an interesting perspective ... since Philbin famously told Kelly about HIS departure at the last minute.

Rege also gave us his 2 cents on who's gonna replace the guy who replaced him.
