KATHIE LEE GIFFORD made a pretty huge mistake on the “Today” show yesterday. She and HODA KOTB were interviewing MARTIN SHORT. . . and there is only one problem…she asked how are things with his wife…and she’s been dead for TWO YEARS!
She said, quote, “You and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”
The thing is, Martin’s wife DIED TWO YEARS AGO. But he didn’t correct her. He just kind of rolled with it. He said, quote, “We, uh . . . married . . . 36 years.” Kathie Lee replied, quote, “But you’re still, like, in love,” and Martin replied, quote, “Madly in love.” Kathie Lee said, quote, “Why?” . . . and Martin answered, quote, “Cute. I’m cute.”
Kathie Lee later apologized for her error on-air, saying Martin corrected her after the interview. But he wasn’t upset at all. In fact, he told her that he had one of the greatest marriages . . . and he STILL DOES.Vodpod videos no longer available.
