Regis and Kelly let it Ripa at the Fontainebleau


Of course Live with Regis and Kelly is taping at the Fontainebleau. Everyone with connections to the hotel is going to be in the live studio audience. As for the rest of the fans who entered some sort of ticket lottery, we guess they will have to tune in from their televisions. But according to a show spokesperson, tickets were aplenty for fans with no connex to Gelman or Reege. We hope you got your tickets. From what we hear, the mega hotel needs all the exposure it can get, so what better way to blast the place into the mainstream than via Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa? All they need now is Oprah and the place is set for life. Anyway, the two hosts arrived at the FB where they were given the official Miami Beach welcome by none other than Mr. Miami Beach, Michael Aller along with John Rolfs, prez and GM of the FB, and Rolando Aedo, Senior VP of marketing and tourism for the Greater Miami Convention and Visitor's Bureau. This marketing push to allure tourists down here is the next best thing to the Super Bowl. "Come on down to sunny Miami. We only have two cases of Swine Flu that we know of. And George Clooney's here too!" Speaking of Clooney, we wonder if he will be on the show this week or if he'll be too tired to appear after several nights in a row of debauchery with Mokai and Quattro owner and avid partier Nicola Siervo.

ALl you needed to do to get tickets was test drive a VW or Acura at Esserman. I was there on Saturday and got to tickets to Tuesdays show. Wanted Wednesday but that day (the best show of the four) was already gone. BTW, I was the 7th one there at 9:15 Saturday morning, test drove the Bug Convertible and will probably end up going back and buying it


I rather have tickets to Clooney's after party! What do I need to test drive for that?


Rosy, you and me both!

Tickets were a plenty? No way, if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you. Entered the lottery under 5-8 friends names and nada


JM: here is the official Live comment on the ticket situation:
"It's our show policy to never load up our audiences with VIPs, whether in our studio in New York or when we're out on location. We distributed hundreds and hundreds of tickets through our website for viewers to come to the Fontainebleau shows. "

maybe the ticket brokers got them all, I can tell you that the public didn't based on my experience! Guess I'll be on my couch with my wife watching the show.


Fountainebleau resorts still owes my company $800k for furniture provided for their Maimi Beach remodel, and refuses to honor their contract. They owe a lot of money to many other companies also. I would recommend not staying at their hotels.


A friend and I entered the "lottery" online and we both received tickets. I don't see what the problem was.
