Kathie Lee Talks About Her Upcoming 'Hot in Cleveland' Guest Spot (VIDEO)

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today'Before Kathie Lee Gifford found success on the daytime talk circuit, she was an actress who had her share of TV failures. Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), she recalled a show that critics savaged - 'Hee Haw Honeys' - and spoke about her upcoming guest spot on 'Hot In Cleveland,' a show that's been much more well-received.

Gifford said TV Guide named 'Honeys' as "one of the worst ten shows ever on television." But at least she had a good time. "They hired three girls to be like a young Charlie's Angels, except we weren't," she said. "The pilot didn't sell, but they kept me, and then they surrounded me with 'Hee Haw' people. I loved it. I met all the country music people doing that show."

Gifford said she also loved the script for 'Cleveland' when she read it on a plane to Los Angeles over the weekend. "I don't know what people thought I was reading, but I had to go to the ladies room, it was so funny." She's not playing herself; the script called her character "a Kathie Lee Gifford type." Sounds like a pretty good fit.

I sure am glad that every single day I get to hear about Kathie & Hoda. Seriously, is there nothing else to be reported on?
