Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will be making a primetime appearance next month. The daytime TV duo will guest star as themselves on the season premier of “Ugly Betty” September 25th on ABC. In the episode, the editors of fictional “Mode” magazine – Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) and Alexis Meade (Rebecca Romijn) – appear on "Live with Regis and Kelly" to promote the magazine’s new issue. “With Wilhelmina at the helm for the first time since taking over from Alexis’ brother, Daniel, the two hosts can’t help but put Alexis on the hot seat,” ABC said in its plot synopsis.
