With Regis and Kathie Lee. Thanks to these successes, he now has his own fashion line. And, he has two national bestsellers to his credit. So what could he have to complain about?

Well, plenty. Now Regis Philbin, the king of curmudgeonly humor, has written an all-new book of side-splitting rants.

Regis provides the inside scoop on his ridiculously difficult life, with cantankerous takes on everything—and everyone—that drives him crazy. In addition, he reveals some of the funnier moments behind the scenes of his television shows, and his takes on travel, sports, and his legions of fans.

Whether it's skewering the producers of his morning talk show, or describing the travails of celebrity life today, in Who Wants to Be Me? you can be sure that Regis Philbin will tell it like it is.

Regis Philbin is the host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee. He is the bestselling author of I'm Only One Man. He lives in New York City.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Regis Philbin became a household name as the popular cohost of Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee. Then, with the phenomenal success of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Regis's popularity soared to dizzying new heights, spawning his own line of clothing and popularizing the catchphrase "Is that your final answer?" In Who Wants to Be Me? the man who can even make losing a million dollars seem funny describes in hilarious detail the trials and tribulations of being Regis Philbin.

Meet the Author

Regis Philbin
Though best known as the jovial but lovably sarcastic host of the American talk show sensation Live with Regis and Kelly (and its earlier incarnation, Live With Regis and Kathie Lee), television personality Regis Philbin has sustained an astonishingly varied career that bridges not only a myriad of broadcast formats -- from daytime and late-night talk to game shows to televised parades and news magazines -- but multiple mediums as well, including books, feature films, and even musical recordings that found Philbin crooning along to old standards.

    Boring is my final answer

    I was so glad it was a condensed version of the book I read. I kept at it hoping it would get better. It didn't. I gave it up before the end. It was a series of unending anecdotes with nothing tying together. Very low rating.

    one of the funniest men I know

    It was very funny, what a great person. He has some very funny friends, and I feel wonderful when I read this book. He has worked so hard to get to this place in his life. It was a great book.

    Who wants to be who God made you to be? It's easy!

    While few of us care how difficult it is to be Regis, nearly everyone desires to become more themselves. Yet, we struggle for a sense of identity, self-worth, reputation, acceptance and love. Regis' book points us to some of these issues through the glitzy world of TV fluff entertainment. Better books are available for this same search for meaning.
