Five Toronto women chosen for Live! With Regis and Kelly’s “Girls Night Out Vegas Getaway”

Today on LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY it was announced that five women from Toronto were selected to be part of the LIVE’s “Girls Night Out Vegas Getaway”.

The five women will fly to Las Vegas this weekend to tape segments with Kelly Ripa to be broadcast on Dec. 2 at 9 a.m. ET on CTV. LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY airs Monday – Friday at 9 a.m. ET on CTV (visit to confirm local broadcast times).

Toronto’s Misty Tyson wrote to LIVE! describing the recent challenging years she and her friends have had – break-ups, cancer, a miscarriage, loss of loved ones – you name it, they’ve experienced it. But through it all, they’ve been there for each other, providing support, friendship, laughs and fun. 

Back in October, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa announced that one lucky viewer and four of her friends would have the chance to travel to the city with the show, enjoy a night on the town with Kelly and be featured on LIVE! To enter, each viewer was required to send a recent photo of herself with her friends, plus a letter detailing why they should be selected for a “GNO” Vegas-style with Kelly.

Their stories and infectious spirit resonated with the LIVE! producers and out of thousands of entries, Misty and friends were selected for the trip to Las Vegas. Dubbed the “Fab Five” by the LIVE! staff, they’ll fly out for a weekend of pampering, shopping and entertainment, capped off by their night on the town with Kelly.
