During the Host Chat at the beginning of today's "Live with Regis and Kelly" television show, Kelly Ripa stated that Studebaker was "...a passing fancy."

I wrote to the show's inbox explaining the error in her statement in that Studebaker manufactured vehicles for 114 years which is longer than GM, Ford or Chrysler.

It may help if the show hears from a few others and doesn't just pass off my correction/comment as the lunatic fringe.

I am not so sure that I will waste any of my time responding to this show. You have all heard the statement..."there is no such thing as a dumb question." We all have heard and probably made dumb statements. It is to the confetti brained celebrity minimalists seen daily on TV that I pose my new signature "dumb question" to. Since few of them have ever ventured far enough from their protected celebrity compounds to be exposed to a live "possum" or one of us "common folk", it would not be a stretch to imagine one of them asking the question below.:)

I am the President of The San Joaquin Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club. We happen to own 6 Studebakers I can assure you that they are not just a passing Fancy. Tell that to the 15,000 members of the International Stude baker Drivers Club. Also Look for Studebakers on the road on July 4th for the first ever International Drive your Studebaker Day.

I don't expect that Regis and/or Kelly read all of the e-mails. I do believe that someone on the show's staff does read the e-mails. Nearly everyday some viewer e-mails are selected to be read on air. I thought that with enough inputs that Studebaker might get noticed.

It does, however, look like there's at least two more contenders for "American automobile manufacturers that have successfully emerged from bankruptcy" thus making Studebaker no longer unique in that respect...

What are you saying! Studebaker was never in bankruptcy. I know that being in bankruptcy is among the erroneous information that has been put up in the SNM. Studebaker was in receivership.

She is the co-host with Regis Philbin of the "Live with Regis and Kelly" daily syndicated TV show. She is also a TV show producer. She does TV ads, TD Banknorth (I think) for one. She used to be on a soap (All My Children - IIRC). She is married to Mark Consuelus(sp).

Gary, what exactly was the original context from which this statement was being used? Was she simply joking, or ribbing the producer if he actually owns Studebakers? Btw, she was an actress long before she was on this show, and while it's easy to attack someone's knowledge without knowing them, we should be tactful with any emails. I've worked with her a few times in the past. She has more on the ball than you think.

For a better account of the carriage and what it really is:

http://www.studebakermuseum.org/exhibits.asp?display=case&id=365676101705

Also this from the SNM:

"Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln took this carriage to Fords Theater in Washington, D.C., on the evening of April 14, 1865, the night of his assassination.

The open barouche model carriage was built by Wood Brothers in 1864 and presented to Lincoln by a group of New York merchants shortly before the Presidents second inauguration. The carriage is equipped with six springs and solid silver lamps, door handles and hubcaps. The steps are connected to the doors so that they lower and rise as the doors open and close.

The Studebaker Brothers had a great appreciation for the United States and its history. When given the chance to purchase the Lincoln Carriage in 1889 Clement Studebaker moved quickly. Mr. Studebaker bought the vehicle from F. B. Brewer of New York, who had acquired it from Robert Lincoln, the Presidents son. The younger Lincoln had sold the carriage shortly after his fathers murder. Studebaker shipped the carriage to Chicago and in August 1890 put it on exhibition on the second floor of the Studebaker Michigan Avenue Repository.

The Lincoln Carriage was one of the first items entered into the Studebaker Corporations historic vehicles collection. Today it is one of the most treasured pieces in the Studebaker National Museum."


I try to be careful doling out facts on a national level, otherwise I may get a talk show job. :D

jclary
06-12-2009, 09:14 AM
If I recall what I saw about the Lincoln carriage at the Studebaker Museum...The carriage was not a Studebaker. It was crafted in New York and given to Lincoln as an inauguration gift. Some time after his death, the carriage was offered for sale and J. M. Studebaker bought it for his private collection. It is my understanding that that is how it happened to come to South Bend and ultimately to the Studebaker Museum. :)

Thanks for the Link Barnlark, that should clear it up. We should make our best effort to correct "incorrect" statements with "correct" statements.

Bob Bryant
06-12-2009, 09:20 AM
Some folks are not into cars and maybe Kelly has never been very aware of Studebaker and just knew that they are no longer manufactured. An unscripted exchange could have caused the remark that doesn't match with reality. I would think Regis would be more likely to be aware of Studebaker, but he may have chosen not to contradict her. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her years working at the university. From observation I can see students arriving at Notre Dame, IN and having almost zero contact with the community and graduating with little knowledge about it in 1953. Through the years I think the city and the university have made a conscious effort to have more interaction and both have benefited in my opinion. I forgive Kelly for her remark...maybe she should be invited to Cedar Rapids and made an honorary queen for a day!

Don't be too hard on her, she was born in 1970 so by the time she started driving, most Studes were long gone. Sort of the same reason why I don't know a lot about Kaisers or Hudsons...if something is off the streets, you don't think or know much about them unless you're a car nut.

A quick aside. I met Regis in the mid-90s while I saw in the service, his son was a DoD civilian student of mine. He's a great guy...he comes across exactly like he is on TV.
He even sent my mon an autographed photo..

Regis and Kelly were kidding around in the Host Chat, as they normally do. They were talking about cell phones and computers. They refer to them as passing fads. Kelly likened them to Studebakers as "a passing fancy."

I have nothing against Kelly (that didn't didn't come out right - or did it?)

I didn't expect a correction, or anything else, from Regis. I do not believe that he had any car while at Notre Dame and probably ventured little into South Bend. Regis has often displayed a complete lack of knowledge about any kind if car, old or new. Remember that he grew up in The Bronx. The family probably never had a car. He mainly lives in Manhattan now and takes car service (livery) everywhere he goes in New York City. He also has two houses in Connecticut. I believe that he usually drives up there for many weekends. He used to have an old Acura that he left in Connecticut for use there.

Kelly lives in SoHo in Manhattan and has a weekend house in the Hamptons (eastern end of Long Island). She uses car/livery service in New York City and I believe that they have a large, late model SUV (Escalade?) to use to go to the Hamptons.

The 6/12 show was a Friday show. Friday shows are not live. They tape them on Thursday morning, right after the Thursday live show. Therefore, I did not expect any mention on today's show. Monday's show (if live) would be the earliest to listen for a comment.

Don't worry Bams, you're still a person of high calibre. :D

She is so uninformed.....and Regis is too scared and politically correct to correct her on live TV.

Those two are a constant source of entertainment for me. Such big city naivety. Amazing.

IMHO, Kelly's cute as they come and has great chemistry with Regis. Keep in mind, she's a blonde. (Even if it's from a bottle)

Bob, as we get older we are allowed to sit corrected.
This works better for me at the computer than standing corrected.

Has anyone heard if Regis made a follow-up comment? I recollect seeing an Avanti for sale recently, with the seller being Michael Gellman. Is this the same Gellman who is the show's producer?

I have not heard any follow up comment, but Kelly has not been back on the show since the comment was made. Regis has had substitute co-hosts this week, Yesterday, Regis said that Kelly would be back tomorrow (today). Today, Molly Shannon was co-host. The next two days Joy Fhilban is scheduled to be the co-host. Joy normally only fills in as a last minute fill in if someone is sick or doesn't show up. I do not know what is up with Kelly. I do know that she just had at least one TV mini-series start up (she and Mark are the producers).

If I'm not mistaken, the Mike Gelman being discussed with the R3 was at South Bend 07. It was not the 'Live' Gelman.

Y'know fellas, this might be a perfect opportunity to plug "Drive Your Studebaker Day."

What if the Live inbox were flooded with polite and informative emails from SDC members. I mean, how could they not mention that they got a pile of messages from an arcane group The messages mentioned here are a great start - polite, positive, inviting...just like 99.9% of SDCers.

How could they not mention THAT on the air...it's priceless!
Plus Regis' demographic would probably appreciate seeing a Studebaker to flash 'em "back in the day".;)

WIN-WIN!

Kelly Ripa returned from a 2.5 week vacation yesterday. Now Regis is off. I did not hear all of yesterday and today's shows, but in what I did hear, there was no mention of Studebaker.
