Regis Pulls a Kathie Lee?

Like Kathie Lee, like Regis? The sweatshop accusations that have dogged Ms. Gifford since she launched her own line of clothing in the mid-1990s are now dogging her soon-to-be-former co-host as he launches his own line of clothing.

In New York on Friday, union types picketed outside the Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square where Reeg‘s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” look (black tie, black shirt, black jacket) was introduced as a marketable commodity last week. The protestors say Van Heusen — the company behind the Regis Philbin line — exploits tropical island people to produce their wares.
