"Extra" is counting down five good reasons why Regis Philbin, who announced he would be retiring from "Live with Regis and Kelly" this November, should stay on the show -- with a little help from our celebrity friends.
#5: There will be millions of weeping women, like "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford. "Regis, you can't go! So many women will be crying."
#4: Sleep is over-rated, although Christie Brinkley understands. "He probably wants to sleep in. I don't blame him, but he can't remove himself altogether!"
#3: You won't find a prettier co-host -- sorry Larry King. "Me and Regis do something together... it's a good idea," says King.
#2: It's a good idea for Regis to stay on "Live" or risk... The Situation, as in "Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, who says, "We kinda want one more season."
And the No. 1 reason Regis shouldn't leave? Howie Mandel can't handle it. "You're going to kill me if you quit. I can't live without you every morning."
"Extra" wants to know the reason YOU don't want Regis to go! Leave it in the comments below.
