KATHIE LEE GIFFORD has announced that REGIS PHILBIN will fill in for HODA KOTB as her co-host on the "Today" show tomorrow.
--They've appeared on each other's shows over the years . . . but this will be the first time that they've actually co-hosted a show together since Kathie Lee left "Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee" in 2000.
--Kathie Lee said, quote, "For the first time in 12 years Regis is going to co-host with me . . . he's in rare form . . . we're just going to let him show up and let the sparks fly. Should be fun!"
(--You can find video on Hulu.com. The Regis part begins three minutes in.)
