Regis Philbin Healing After Hip Surgery

We're wishing a speedy recovery to Regis Philbin, who underwent hip replacement surgery this week.

The 78-year-old host of Live! With Regis and Kelly is healing just fine. "Word from the hospital is that everything went perfect this morning during Regis' hip replacement surgery, and his doctor said that Regis couldn't be in better shape," a rep for Reege said. "Regis anticipates returning to Live! With Regis and Kelly soon after the first of the year, given the procedure's typical four- to six-week recovery time. Regis and Joy want to thank everyone for their support and best wishes."

Regis has so much verve we know he'll be back on top of his bantering game in no time.
