Here's another one for 2020 as Regis Philbin has passed away. The legendary talk show host was 88. According to a statement to People Magazine, Philbin died of natural causes yesterday, his family shared: "We are deeply saddened to share that our beloved Regis Philbin passed away last night of natural causes, one month shy of his 89th birthday. His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss."

Though his death was natural causes, Philbin has been no stranger to health issues. In 1993, he had an angioplasty and in 2007, he underwent a triple bypass due to plaque found in his arteries. He also had hip replacement surgery two years later and had a blood clot removed in 2010. Regis was best known as the co-host of 'Live! With Regis and...' I say that because it started as 'Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee' in 1986 (originally 'The Morning Show' for three years prior). In 2000, Kathie Lee Gifford left the series so it was just Regis and a series of co-hosts, some vying for the vacant spot, such as Lisa Rinna and Kelly Ripa. Eventually, Ripa won out in 2001, turning the show into 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' until Regis departed the series in 2011. He also gained popularity as the host of the smash hit game show 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.' He is survived by his second wife, Joy, who was a frequent guest co-host on 'Live!' and four children. We will miss you, Reg!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
