The latest Regis Philbin news is that Regis has fired his agent, Jim Griffin. This shocking news comes just a day after Philbin quit Live with Regis & Kelly. Could the iconic TV host be losing it? Hopefully not!
Jim had been RegisÂ’ agent for the past 30 years! Surely, it was no minor disagreement which caused Philbin to give Griffin the axe. So, what could it have been? As of yet, Regis hasnÂ’t given any official answers. What is known is that 79-year-old Philbin will now be fully working with WME, which is a company made of Endeavor and William Morris.
Jim Griffin had worked for William Morris up until the company merged with Endeavor. Griffin left after the merger and Regis stayed on as one of JimÂ’s clients. However, everything has been switched around now because Philbin is now fully back with WME. Previously WME handled RegisÂ’ outside work while Jim handed his TV appearances and shows. Griffin stated he was surprised by the news and did not know what prompted PhilbinÂ’s decision to fire him.
There seem to be a lot of major changes going on in Regis PhilbinÂ’s life right now. He leaves his extremely successful show and fires his agent of 3 decades! Could Regis be Â“losing it?Â” Could there be some sort of extreme stress which is causing Philbin to act in an extreme manner? What do you think is going on with this TV icon?
