I Cannot Believe Nobody Called Me

Thanks a lot, Regis Philbin. I know it was because you didn't want me to smoke your co-host Kelly and all, but, frankly, I really coulda used that $25,000.

A 150-Yard Dash... in Stiletto Heels?

Mark Remy

Women run in high heels every day—after cabs or buses, through airports, away from me. Today in Central Park, however, they'll be running for cash. That's right: It's the first ever High Heel-a-thon, a 150-yard dash in New York's Central Park wherein all the runners will wear high-heeled shoes.

Described by the organizers as "a spirited dash to raise money for the March of Dimes," today's race is brought to you by the good folks at TV's LIVE With Regis and Kelly. (Co-host Kelly Ripa will be among the competitors.)

Laugh if you like, but apparently this is serious stuff—the prize purse includes 25 grand for first place. And the race will be chip-timed. (Seriously.) We slipped into a fabulous pair of Marc Jacobs patent leathers and spoke with Michael Gelman, executive producer of LIVE, for more details...
