Fans of Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will get the chance to hobnob with the perky twosome and their guests on a special outing in Puerto Rico beginning Saturday, November 23, 2002. That’s the date the crew of “Live with Regis and Kelly” takes to the island of Puerto Rico for five days and four nights of fun at the Wyndam El Conquistador Resort and Country Club.

The show will tape live on the big isle November 25th and 26th; participants will be treated to a variety of extras, including a luncheon with the stars on November 25th; a lucky pair will be invited to play a game of doubles tennis with Regis and longsuffering producer Michael Gelman. Already planning to be in Puerto Rico? Residents of and visitors to Puerto Rico may also secure tickets to the tapings.

According to the “Live” website, all that’s needed to attend without the hotel package is a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) sent to the attention of T. Boonsukha:
