"Extra's' Mario Lopez co-hosted "Live! with Kelly" on Wednesday, and spoke about the cruise ship that capsized off the coast of Italy, leaving 11 dead and 23 missing. The ship's captain, Francesco Schettino, is now the most hated man in Italy and has been blasted as "The Chicken of the Sea" by the NY Post.
When Ripa asked Mario if he had heard the transcript between the Coast Guard official and Capt. Schettino, Lopez replied, "What's Italian for coward, is what I want to know!"
Talk show veteran Regis Philbin was mobbed on his way to the set of "Live with Regis and Kelly," marking his final episode after 28 years on the show.
His friends and family were in the studio to bid him farewell, along with "Extra" host Maria Menounos, who brought Reege a bottle of champagne. The 80-year-old declared, "Let's get wasted!"
Now that Regis Philbin's time on "Live with Regis and Kelly" is nearing an end, "Extra" wants to know who you think should step into the spot.
Some of those rumored to be in contention are already out, including "Real Housewives" host Andy Cohen and Ryan Seacrest. Kelly Ripa told "Extra" she doesn't have a clue. "I swear, they've told me nothing! If I knew something I would tell you."
This year marks the 14th year of one of Hollywood's most glitzy garage sales, also known as Super Saturday 14, and will benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Emma Roberts, Kelly Ripa and Donna Karan will host this year's event, to take place Saturday, July 30 in The Hamptons.
The super designer sidewalk sale will include being able to select expensive threads donated from celebrities, a carnival for kids, activities and entertainment.

After Regis Philbin announced five months ago that he will plans on retiring from "Live with Regis and Kelly," the show's execs have narrowed the search for his replacement to three possible candidates.
Radio and TV personality Ryan Seacrest, 36; TV host and Bravo executive Andy Cohen, 43; and TV host, actor and Kelly Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, 40, are all contenders, according to the Wall Street Journal.
An emotional Kelly Ripa, who played Hayley Vaughan for 12 years on "All My Children," called it a "bad day" after the learning of its cancellation, along with the axing of "One Life to Live."
The talk show host took a trip down memory lane to the set of "AMC" with husband Mark Consuelos. Ripa has said losing the long-running soap opera is like losing a member of family -- she met her husband and lifelong friends on the show, and was pregnant two times, although neither pregnancy was written into the episodes. Mark reminisced, "There were a lot of firsts here."
Fellow cast member Cameron Matheson, who played Ryan Lavery for 13 years, talked to "Extra" about the loss. Matheson said the cancellations will cause "a little anger, a little outrage."
From one host to another, Kelly Ripa exclaimed, "Hey Mario, it's your friend Kelly Ripa, and this is the world according to me!"
Ripa's co-host Regis Philbin had postponed his retirement to November, but does she think he might cancel it all together? "He made up his mind a long time ago. But we always hope for the Hail Mary at the last minute, the change of heart," Kelly admitted.
