    Default Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin in hot watah

    Protest Over Ass Comment on "Regis and Kelly"

    Posted Oct 30th 2008 7:26PM by TMZ Staff
    A donkey might be a good symbol for the Democratic Party, but that doesn't mean Dominicans want to be compared to one on national TV.

    Here's what went down. Kelly Ripa told a story on Monday about how one of her 37 kids was learning about government and said the elephant represented the Republicans and the donkey represented the Dominicans. Regis then quipped, "She's pretty close." Ay, caramba!

    A Dominican-American group is demanding an apology from the show, claiming "host Regis Philbin practically agreed with laughter over what the two thought was a joke."

    Dominican-American and Latino leaders will stage a protest outside the ABC studios tomorrow in NYC where the show airs.

    Tomato, tomahto, Democrat, Dominican -- let's call the whole thing off!

    Whoever thought I'd look back fondly on the days of Kathy Lee. She was marginally less obnoxious than Kelly, and that's no mean feat.

    Really? ugh I HATED the few times I've watched Kathie Lee. All her bragging about her kids and hubby, it was sweet schaden when she went through all that shit with his cheating.

    I've never really watched Kelly but if she's worse than that old sea hag, she must be really really bad!

    Regis needs to retire.

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I too thought Kathy Lee was an obnoxious harpy a-hole bent on sharing the intimate details of her family life with America. Dial it up just a shade and you've got Kelly.

    i agree Regis needs to retire. he almost always gets the name wrong of the guest. He over estimates his importance in peoples lives. i dont watch as much as i used to, but Kelly is easier to handle than Kathie Me was.

    I don't think her daughter meant, nor did Regis mean that the Dominicans are like the Democrats, rather that it was 'close' in the way it sounded the same.

    But ITA... the show sucks.

    WTF? People need to get a grip! He wasn't insulting them, just laughing at the kid getting it mixed up.
