Judy and Danny Philbin In the January 5 issue of The National Enquirer, Judy Philbin, the wife of Regis's estranged son Danny, wrote that her husband has been unable to find employment anywhere near his Cathedral City, California home -- he is a public affairs professional -- and that she recently lost her job as a certified nurse assistant. As a result, the couple has been borrowing money to eat. Worse, Danny is a wheelchair-bound double amputee. Though his health has been deteriorating, they can no longer afford health insurance.
Upon reading the article, Regis immediately promised to take care of the couple's mounting financial problems.
"Thank God, Regis and Danny have reconciled," said Judy. "The story in The Enquirer about our difficulties made all the difference. Regis and his wife Joy read about our desperate situation and reached out to us."
"Regis said, 'I had no idea things were so bad until I read the Enquirer story. Danny knows I love him. Why didn't he just call me?'"
