Kathie Lee Gifford makes epic gaffe on 'Today'
Kathie Lee makes epic gaffe on 'Today'
Ever had one of those days? Kathie Lee Gifford had one Wednesday, a real doozy.
The “Today” show co-host was interviewing comedian Martin Short, who is promoting a new movie, “Madagascar 3,” when she brought up Short’s marriage, saying that he “and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business – how many years now for you guys?”
Short’s wife died of ovarian cancer in 2010.
TMZ carried the video of Gifford’s epic fail.
“We have (been) married 36 years,” Short stutters in reply, continuing to smile.
Smelling a story, Gifford continues: “But you’re still in love!”
“Madly in love, madly in love,” Short says as his brain screams “Make Her Stop!”
“Why?” Gifford asks, seeking the secrets of the couple’s amour.
“Cute, I’m cute,” Short replies.
Gifford apologized for her blunder a short time later on air.
“I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family,” Gifford tweeted. “He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful.”
