He later confirmed that he hadn't seen her since he left the show in November 2011. But when asked if it was "weird" and if it bothered him, Regis said no, and even agreed that he had a good run with Kelly when they worked together.
Regis and Kelly worked together side by side for a decade, starting in 2001, when Kelly was named as an official replacement for Kathie Lee Gifford. Regis announced he was leaving Live! shortly after celebrating their 10th anniversary together, and was replaced by Michael Strahan in 2012.
In April 2013, Kelly herself admitted that she lost touch with Regis, when she was honored by The Hollywood Reporter along with her current co-host Michael for making its annual 35 Most Powerful People in Media list.
"I haven't seen him, no," she said.
But one person Regis did keep in touch with is Kathie Lee, who he co-hosted Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee with for 15 years.
"She lives in Greenwich and I'm a weekend guy there, so I do see a lot of her," he told Hoda.
