Regis Philbin Returning to TV on "Rachael Ray"

Stephen Lovekin/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Regis Philbin made it clear that when he exited Live! With Regis and Kelly last November that he was not retiring. Now, starting next week, he’ll be back — but this time with a different spunky TV star.

The ubiquitous television host will be joining celebrity chef Rachel Ray in her kitchen on The Rachael Ray Show once a month beginning Monday. The appearance on Ray’s hit cooking show will mark his return to morning programming, which he stepped down from after hosting Live! for 28 seasons. The 81-year-old said that when the offer came in, he couldn’t refuse.

“I’m not going to say I don’t want to do your show!” he told USA Today. “I think it’s fun. I spent my whole life doing this … [Now] it’s not the every-morning burden.”

Not only will the always effervescent Philbin be gaining some screen time while appearing on the two-time Daytime Emmy winning show, but he might be gaining some culinary skills – something he says he is lacking.

“I can make a sandwich,” he said. “Two pieces of bread and you lay a little cheese or something on there. Add some mustard. Bang! I’ve made some lunch!”

Rachael Ray, ASPCA Launch Challenge to Increase Pet Adoption

Bobby Bank/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- TV personality Rachael Ray appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America today to talk about an effort that is close to her heart.

Ray, who hosts the talk and cooking show Rachael Ray Show on ABC, launched the 2012 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K challenge, in which 50 competing shelters across the country will work increase pet adoption, thereby saving the lives of numerous companion animals.

The ASPCA is the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Shelters participating in the challenge will try to save 300 animals more in August, September and October than they did during the same period last year. The shelters will hold adoption drives and creative promotions in order to reach their goal.

The challenge is being funded through proceeds from the sale of Nutrish, Ray’s brand of premium dog food. The grand prize is $100,000. More than $500,000 in grant funding and other prizes will also be awarded.

According to the ASPCA, between five and seven million companion animals enter shelters every year. Three to four million of them are euthanized due to a lack of space or resources.

Kim Kardashian: 'I Have Said No to Butt Enhancement Pills'

During an upcoming appearance on The Rachael Ray Show, Kim reveals, “I have said no to butt enhancement pills.  I would never endorse a product like that.”  Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, appears on the same show and says it’s her job as a manager to present the Kardashian sisters with “every single deal,” whether she wants to or not.

Kris Jenner also reveals the Kardashian empire is considering expanding, with a reality series featuring the two youngest members of the family, teen sisters Kylie, 13, and Kendall, 15.  Jenner told host Rachael Ray, “We’ve been batting that around a little bit.” 

Kardashian and Jenner’s appearance is featured on the Feb. 28 installment of The Rachael Ray Show.
