Regis Philbin

1995:

I was at the Reebok Sports Club when Regis Philbin emerged from the bathroom. I introduced myself to him and told him that I worked in the same building as his studio, in the news department. I said, “I’ve seen you there several times, but I didn’t feel like talking to you.” He just looked at me and walked away.

Late 1990s:

I stumbled upon a virtual celebrity summit. I was waiting in the lobby of the Reebok Sports Club when Regis Philbin sat down at a table next to me. A few minutes later Craig Kilborn came over and started talking to Regis. A few minutes after that Richard Belzer came upon the scene. They made celebrity chit-chat while I attempted not to listen.

New York, NY
Late 1990s:

I was in Tower Records on the Upper West Side when Regis Philbin approached me. He knew me because I worked at Reebok Sports Club where he worked out. He told me he was trying to return a video and it was late, and he didn’t have any money on him to pay the fee. He asked me for $5. I gave it to him and he told me he’d pay me back when he saw me at the gym. Of course, the multi-millionaire Regis never paid me back.
