Hoda and Kathie Lee want Bob to e-mail them his dirty secret

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 2nd 2009 5:01PM
Loyal TV Squad readers will recall that Bob wrote a post yesterday that criticized the ever-annoying Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford for the lame "dirty secrets" they gave during the lighter-than-air fourth hour of Today that morning (they originally talked about "bad habits," which turned into a talk about "dirty secrets"). For those who care: Hoda doesn't wash her hair that often and Kathie Lee doesn't floss as much as she should. I know: scandalous, right?

Anyway, at the beginning of their first segment this morning, the hosts called Bob and TV Squad out on his post -- initially they said he "wrote in," as if Bob's sitting at his computer writing angry e-mails to the Today show staff -- and invited him to e-mail them his dirty secret:

Bob already took care of that, didn't he? He said his dirty secret was that he watched the fourth hour of Today. That seemed like an awfully big thing for him to admit, don't you think?

But I guess Hoda and Kathie Lee are more demanding that. So the gauntlet has been thrown down: help Bob craft an e-mail to the ladies that will really make their toes curl. Should he say that he keeps his ear wax in a big pile in his bathroom closet? That he likes to watch reruns of American Idol while eating raw cookie dough? Get creative, folks, and leave suggestions in the comments.

Oh, here's one last thought: Perhaps he can tell them that he secretly has a crush on Kelly Ripa. It wouldn't be shameful -- I mean, Kelly's so damn adorable -- but it would be highly annoying to Kathie Lee.

I can't believe Kathy Lee thinks it is cute to act like a poor sport! Is this the way she raised her children, to have a hissy if they are not winning? She has a beautiful singing voice but her actions and loud mouth detract from any good she could do. I'm sorry Kathy but your attitude really is very poor and I would like to see you do something else. Your guests are your GUESTS! Kudos to Hota for putting up with you!

Maybe Bob should mention that he watches the 4th hour with no pants on? maybe then we can get KLG to open up.

Also, Bob could correct them on the pronunciation of his last name.

I'm with you, Bob. Paper towel for everything - doorknobs, faucets, soap dispenser, toilet seat (obviously)... never ever touch anything in there.

Yeah, the first segment talked about "bad hygiene habits," but in the later segment I caught they used the phrase "dirty little secrets," which I took to mean dirty little secrets in general, not just hygenic. Their answers make more sense in that context I guess.

As for my hygenic thing? I never touch anything when I go to a men's room. I even use paper towels to open the door when I leave. I don't know if that's a "bad" habit since people really are gross in there, but there you go.
