They say time heals all wounds but that adage doesn't apply in the case of former co-hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa. Philbin revealed to Larry King he and Ripa haven't spoken since he left Live! in 2011. According to Philbin:

She got very offended when I left,. She thought I was leaving because of her. I was leaving because I was getting older, and it wasn’t right for me anymore.
