imageIn this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Reege — consummate talk show host, man about town, loving husband, father, and obsessive sports fan—looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned—and elbows rubbed — with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman, Donald Trump, George Clooney, Howard Stern, Jack Nicholson; legendary Notre Dame coaches Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly ‘Pippa’ Ripa, as well as his own lovely wife, Joy—to name just a few.

Whether he’s revealing what really drove him “bonkers” on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, what Jack Nicholson said about his beautiful leading ladies during their guys’ night out together, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page of How I Got This Way with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.
