The Big Show, Dr. Oz Remember Regis Philbin: "He Had A Unique Ability To Put A Smile On All Our Faces"

Monday, July 27th

TV legend Regis Philbin died of natural causes July 24th at the age of 88, leaving behind a legacy full of memorable small screen moment and great stories!

Scott & Ross Brittain were guests on 'The Regis Philbin Show' back in 1984, talking about the success of the Z Morning Zoo. Regis had been a frequent guest on the Zoo and vise versa, so all parties involved had no problem poking fun at each other!

Dr. Oz called in this morning to share memories of Regis, saying he got to know him when he was on 'The Dr. Oz Show' to talk about heart surgery.

"He had a unique ability to put A smile on all our faces"Dr. Oz remembers although he was faced with his mortality after his procedure.

They also went out to dinner and Dr. Oz was expecting to see a different side of Regis, but didn't.

"When the light was on and you were taping and when the light was off, you couldn't tell the difference...it was the same person" Dr. Oz fondly says of Regis, noting he always had the outgoing, caring & fun personality you saw on TV every day.

Brad Blanks had the pleasure of interviewing Regis on the red carpet a handful of times, getting advice from Regis at a Victoria's Secret fashion show (and Brad not knowing who he was), to interviews later on talking about Slumdog Millionaire and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, plus another interview all about America's Got Talent.
