Archie's Generic Celebrities Month, Day 17: Not Actually Regis and Kathie Lee

If there's one person I think we can agree has the potential to be more grating that Cheryl Blossom, it's former TV cohost Kathie Lee Gifford! So, here's a generic version of her.


Panels from "Cheryl in the Morning" in Cheryl Blossom (1997 series) #5 (September 1997), script and pencils by Dan Parent, inks by Jon D'Agostino, colors by Barry Grossman, letters by Bill Yoshida

Oh, and Earth-Archie's version of Kathie Lee also has a sordid business secret As Veronica Lodge might say, especially in that issue in which she went to Paris: "Quelle surprise!"


I bet the real-life Regis would have given up all his Who Wants to be a Millionaire royalties to be able to dump Kathie Lee on the air. Instead, Regis, enjoy and savor this generic equivalent!


I think you, as a student and scholar of Archie Comics cause and effect, know what's gonna happen next.


Special bonus Generic Celebrity: Not Actually Jenny McCarthy!


Special extra-bonus Generic Celebrity: Not Actually Martha Stewart!


And if you can't get enough of Cheryl Blossom vs. Not Actually Martha Stewart, tune in again on Thanksgiving!

Any last words, Cindy Lee?

1. Buy a town.
2. Remove the inhabitants.
3. Level the buildings.
4. Build a superstore for the inhabitants, who aren't there any more...

No, I don't get it.

Any joke I make will pale in comparison to your Angel Love panelbomb. Bravo. (Although it's a shame that your dialogue balloon eclipses the sight of that guy behind her wearing a turban with a Barbie Styling Head on top of it.)
