Today Andy Richter guest co-hosted Regis & Kelly in his first appearance since leaving Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show. He used the opportunity to air his grievances against NBC and Leno, then chowed down on cheese made of human breast milk.
Richter confirms the rumor that he and Conan may be going on tour and says he wants to set the record straight about Conan receiving a "golden parachute"; Richter claims Conan's actually putting a lot of his own money into paying former staffers.
Kelly Ripa doesn't expect to get an answer when she asks if Richter has any ill feelings towards NBC and Jay Leno, but he exclaims, "Yes! Yes I do! Why wouldn't I?" He explains his problem with Leno is:
It's very frustrating when somebody says... "I'm going to take this number one show and hand it over and hope that the next guy makes it a number one show, and then doesn't and says things like, "Well I didn't have any choice. They wouldn't let me out of my contract." You know how multi-millionaires are always being forced to do things they don't want to do."
Kelly, a true TV pro, then decides to lighten the mood with a taste test of cheese made from human milk.
