9780062109767: How I Got This Way

One of the most popular television and cultural icons ever, Regis Philbin has been entertaining television audiences for more than fifty years—as a beloved morning-show host ( Live with Regis and Kelly), a nighttime game-show host ( Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?) and also as a fixture on national and local late-night talk shows. The irrepressible “Reege” has regaled television audiences with his stories for more than half a century, but he’s saved the most hilarious, surprising, heartfelt, and inspiring tales for How I Got This Way. Both a fascinating show business memoir and a delightful primer for living the good life rolled into one, How I Got This Way is Reege being Reege, just the way we love him, as he shares the secrets to success and happiness that he has learned from his innumerable celebrity encounters, his close, personal friendships, and, of course,  his relationship with his loving wife and family.

Review:

Essential for all popular collections. (Library Journal)

Others have come and gone, but the breezy Philbin is still here. What you see on TV is what you get in this book. Fans will love it. (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover:

Sure, he's an excitable guy. Sure, he loves to complain. But Regis Philbin loves life …

And after five decades in show business—and nearly 17,000 unforgettable hours on television—he has a lifetime's worth of stories to tell. In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Reege—consummate talk-show host, man-about-town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan—looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned—and elbows rubbed—with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers, including David Letterman, Donald Trump, George Clooney, Howard Stern, and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly "Pippa" Ripa.

Whether he's revealing what really drove him "bonkers" on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, what Jack Nicholson said about his beautiful leading ladies during their guys' night out together, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 218 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Emmy award-winning television star Regis Philbin has entertained millions of Americans every weekday morning for the past 28 years hosting, in various incarnations, the popular show Live with Regis and Kelly . Referred to often as the hardest working man in television, he has rubbed elbows and egos with countless personalities. His innate curiosity and wit has enabled him to learn great life lessons from the most legendary and formidable of them. Now in a most unique memoir, Regis shares all that these experiences have taught him about achieving success and happiness-and about maintaining both for as long as he has! It is the ultimate gift to his fans. From an awkward first meeting with Jack Nicholson to early encounters with a young Ronald Reagan and a shy, unknown, 18-year-old Steven Spielberg, Regis reveals the many influences that have shaped his life philosophy and career. Recounted here are stories about chance meetings, interactions, and full-blown adventures with Bing Crosby, Donald Trump, Don Rickles, Dave Letterman, Dean Martin, Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, Lou Holt, Joe DiMaggio, Jerry Seinfeld, Cary Grant, Bill Cosby, Walter Winchell, John Severino (his most notorious and life-changing boss), Bill Rankin, Kiegler Flake, George Clooney, George Steinbrenner, Charles Grodin, Howard Stern, and others. Of course, there are also chapters devoted to his co-stars of many years, Kelly Ripa and Kathie Lee Gifford, and one that is nothing less than a moving love letter to his wife of 41 years, Joy Philbin. Invaluable advice closes each chapter with the trademark gratitude and humility that has made Regis Philbin such a national treasure. Inspiring anecdotes, laugh-out-loud tales, and awkward celebrity moments make this so much more than a memoir-it truly is Regis personal guide to living a positive life. Marked by same tongue-in-cheek humor and candor Regis has always displayed, this book will serve and endure as a reminder of why America has related to and loved this one-of-a-kind television legend for so many decades.
