Talk about someone getting his yucks at Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s expense! On “Regis and Kelly,” Reeg brought the house down as he poked fun of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” ongoing sisterly feud when the two visited the show on Friday. Oh, and if anyone noticed, Caroline Manzo was there, too.
“Do you get along with your sister-in-law?” the 79-year-old host asked Teresa. Pausing uncomfortably, she eked out, “We try.”
As Melissa explained how Bravo producers wanted to keep the show all in the family, Mr. Philbin hardly paid attention, keeping his eye on Teresa. And like a bored grandpa at a family reunion, he blurted out the obvious tension in the room to keep things entertaining.
“Look at you, Teresa, you don’t want to look at her, do you?” he asked, gesturing towards Melissa.
“Oh, Regis, you’re such a troublemaker!” interjected Caroline (in an attempt to remind everyone she existed).
“Just look at the way she’s looking straight ahead and clutching [her] hands together as the new addition is talking. Don’t you think Regis picks up on this?!” the elder host exclaimed, talking about himself in the third person. “Don’t I know what’s going on here?!’
Thankfully, Miss Ripa came to the ladies’ rescue. “Teresa will throw this table at you, and I will help,” she told her comedic counterpart. Ding! Ding! Ding! Needless to say, the audience broke out in laughs.
Trying to take the attention off of her, Teresa asked Reeg if he had a sibling. “He died…you happy you asked now?” he answered with his signature mock-scream-talk.
As for Caroline? Kelly took the floor once more asking if the Mother Hen had aspirations to transform her radio gig into something bigger—perhaps, a talk show even?
“Oh, my God, I would love that,” the Jersey Mama replied.
“Cause there’s a chair opening up here,” Kelly bantered.
