Kelly Ripa has said some unkind things about her ex partner, Regis Philbin. Why? Regis is gone. It's over. He can't defend himself. She is only going to come across as mean, picking on a guy America loved.

Trevor Noah announced yesterday he is leaving The Daily Show after seven years. Any time I watched, I was underwhelmed.
