Regis Philbin gets racy with Nicki Minaj

File this one under ewww.

Morning show host Regis Philbin and his cohort Kelly Ripa welcomed hip hop star Nicki Minaj on Monday, when the show was broadcasting from Las Vegas.

Regis is apparently a fan of Nicki’s. Maybe a little too eager a fan.

“I love the way you dress,” he told the entertainer. And then for some reason he made contact with her backside, as Kelly shrieked, “Regis!”

Here’s a video of the incident from the Huffington Post, in case you’d like to have a look for yourself.

Someone asked Nicki about the encounter on Twitter.

“Lol. I was in shock!” was her response.

Also during her time with Regis and Kelly, when they were all discussing Lil Wayne, Regis cracked a joke suitable for a Viagra ad.

Like we said. Ewww.

He’s a harmless old man. He’s not Roman Polanski. He either got caught in between doing somethin.

He slapped the back of the middle of her thigh at least 6 inches below her butt. Anyone who thinks he grabbed her ass needs to retake 6th grade human anatomy.

Regis is a canker sore on the face of television. His voice is slightly less annoying than Fran the Nanny back in the day as for Kelly talentless as a Kardashian! WTH is Nicki Minaj??????????????????

Nuff said

I would sue him for sexual harassment. Dirty old Clariol#5 brownhair dye prude. He should not touch her period. Lady GaGa would have stabbed with the top edge of one of her outfits.

If you are at all familiar with the show, then you would know that Regis was just trying to be hip for the young crowd.

I thought it was funny. And it wasn’t a smack on the trunk either. It was a smack below the bumper.

Oh please…..When he said “I like the way you dress, than slap near her butt” what he was really saying is “your body turns me on, especially that azz!” . Its obvious.

NIcki is no more than a plastic Barbie wanna be! I don’t get why she would do that to herself. Norhint is real. Not the butt, not the breast, not even the face. Pure plastic.

I think Nicki Minaj has positioned herself well as a “NON LIKE NO OTHER” artist in the game! My daughter loves her music and what I hear on ’safe’ radio play – not bad!! I dont like that someone like Reg would be so inclined to touch any woman in an inappropriate manner.
There are do’s and donts’ and REgis crossed that line.

Also, I would not even tune in if Kelly were not present. She brings a young, fresh appeal. That’s why someone like Nicki Minaj is a guest!

He was preparing to do that. Check him out at the 50 second mark. He was eyeing the booty! lol. He went a little far with this one though, cause if it was corporate america it would be an automatic lawsuit! lol Hey Regis, you might want to lay off taken the Viagra before the show!

Just wondering

Reading the comments after the article is funny. No matter what the situation is someone always turn the article into something racist. No matter what the subject of the article is.

Is it okay because he is a dirty old man, he flirts with many of the young women that appear on his show (especially those with implants such as Kim. K) but this is the first time I have seen him touch a female’s rear on air. If it were a young, male, TV host would it be outrage then? It reminds me when Issac grabbed ScarJo’s chest on the red carpet. I do not care if the TV host is old, young, gay or straight; no man has the right to grab a woman, especially without her permission. It is just such a lack of respect for women in this society, it saddens me. David Letterman looks at the dancer’s rears that appear with the live singers on his show all the time but he never grabs at them on air. If the hosts want to stare they do all the time but grabbing at the women is crossing the line.

Im a fan of Regis but this was over the line. I also find it funny the lack of outrage about this in the media. I watched as Kanye West was vilified by everyone under the sun including the President as he should have been for what he did. Yet Regis Philbin touches this woman’s butt and says very inappropriate things and not a peep from anyone. But to bring up this double standard and your get accused of playing the race card. Wrong is wrong. ABC at minimum needs to have him apologize for his actions

I wonder if lady gaga went on something like 106 & park and had that done….what would happen then? This is just yet another reminder that they still view blk women as objects first….dont like it, its reality…a sad sick reality.

In fact, lets forget the stupid created institution known as race and just think about women PERIOD. I think a lot of women across the country took offense to this. Old man’s lust got the best of him…

Regis touched her inappropriately. Regis lustful actions was disrespectful to her as a lady, entertainer, and guest on his show. Is this the image Regis sponsors of the show support. This young lady is proven professional. This young lady is some mom and dad daughter, they deserves his respect.

With all of the actress, models and celebrities that frequent this show I have never seen Regis disrepect another woman like. Is it that he (Regis) feels intitled the grope a black woman without any fear of consequence. But hey, Nikki if you project yourself as @#$ dont be surprised if men treat you that way even if you do label it as “entertainment.”

@Pebble, why must someone be a “hater” because they state the obvious? Even for money I wouldn’t go so far as to have all that plastic in my body. It just ain’t natural. I have no need to hate because she has yet to impress. Maybe when and if she’s as big as my fav Beyonce I’ll have a little hate in me. Until then give it a rest. The true Queen B is B!

They keep taking my comments off. Maybe it’s because everyone knows I touched a 14 year old’s pecker on stage while at a talent show so I can’t judge what Regis did. :) downstammy@ymail.com

Um...calm down ppl

Um….sexual harassment is only when the PERSON (Nicki Minaj) thinks it inappropriate. She obviously doesn’t so why is everyone so mad?
