Neil Patrick Harris kicks off a week of hosting “Live”

Neil Patrick Harris Gushes About His (Very) Brief Stint in Sleep No More on Live With KellyWas looking forward to watching Neil Patrick Harris again today on Live With Kelly but every station here in LA is carrying the sentencing of Conrad Murray.
I say just let CNN carry it for everyone and let us enjoy some more NPH and their scheduled guest Betty White.
Anyway, I very much enjoyed Neil’s appearance on Monday during which he said of Miss White: “She’s a slam dunk … I’ll MAKE OUT with her.”
If he were not so busy with his CBS sitcom, film roles and all the rest, Neil would be a natural to replace Regis Philbin full-time.
“Neil Patrick Harris always does a great job — but he’s got an enormous hit,” Regis told Extra this week. “They’ve got to find someone who has the time right now to do that. Neil was great and he will probably pinch hit, I’m sure. They have to keep looking around until they find someone that really appeals to Kelly… and then they’ll go for it.”
While NPH won’t be getting the gig on a permanent basis, it’s certainly nice to have him on this week – especially since he and Kelly Ripa enjoy such an easy chemistry and a real friendship.
He and partner David Burtka joined Ripa and her family for Thanksgiving. Said Kelly: “If you have the occasion to have Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka come to your Thanksgiving, do it. [They] are like human party tricks.”

Said Neil of Mark: “He hated me for the rest of the night. He kept walking around and asking me questions like he was a detective on law and order. … It’s the drawback because after you’re like a warlock.”

2 Remarks

  1. What was the name/spelling of the restaurant Neil mentioned on “Live Kelly” today?

  2. Leo,
    The name of the restaurant is Nolita in NYC. NPH recommended the “Torrisi Italian Specialties”. I hope to try it one day.
