Elka Talks With Kathie Lee Gifford About Man Troubles on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 1st 2011 6:00AM
'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Choice'Man, it's good to have 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). What only became a breakout hit because of the hot streak Betty White was on at the time has launched an entire line of new series for TV Land, but the original continues to bring the best laughs.

Picking up on threads from the season finale, Elka struggled to decide which man to choose -- including her not-so-dead husband (Don Rickles) -- while Joy and Victoria dealt with the aftermath of their drunken marriage.

The two of them as a couple, even though they're both straight, proved to be funnier than when other shows have done it in the past. Particularly when Victoria tried to use it to score her a job on the new 'The View' rip-off 'The Chatter,' starring Kathie Lee Gifford.

Regis Philbin's long-time 'Live' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) TV partner Kathie Lee Gifford came by her old show to bid the daytime icon farewell. Regis, ever the gentleman, started off by making things as awkward as possible.

"It's perfectly human to experience some sexual tension when you work with someone over the years," Regis said, as the audience fell silent. "Honest to God ... did it ever happen to you?" he asked. Kathie Lee paused for a few seconds and then flatly replied, "No," a fantastic reminder of the duo's comedic timing.

Wendy Williams Is More Upset at Kathie Lee Than Kris Jenner Is (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 4th 2011 4:30PM
As it turns out, Wendy Williams is a lot more upset at Kathie Lee Gifford for spilling the beans on Khloe Kardashian's "six effing months" marriage prediction than Kris Jenner is. On Thursday Wendy had called Kathie Lee an "infiltrator" and a bad friend "who was trying to get a leg up on the rest of us in the media" for sharing Khloe's inflammatory quote on the 'Today' airwaves.

Jenner, completing what we can only hope will be the last stop of her book-selling/damage control tour, stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show,' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox), where Wendy really wanted her to say that she felt betrayed by Kathie Lee sharing the insider gossip. But Jenner wouldn't bite, insisting that Kathie Lee was a close family friend who wasn't trying to hurt the family.

Lo and behold, the Kim Kardashian divorce spectacular is now starting feuds between daytime talk show hosts. With Kris Jenner expected to continue her daytime damage control tour Monday on 'The Wendy Williams Show,' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) Wendy set her sights on Kathie Lee Gifford, who earlier in the week spilled the beans that at the wedding, Khloe told her she gave the marriage "six effing months."

Wendy had some harsh words for Kathie Lee, who was invited to the ceremony as a close personal friend of the family. She called her "an infiltrator," and chastised her for sharing Khloe's snidely prescient remark on TV. "If that was my friend, it'd be over, right?" Wendy asked, as the audience erupted in applause.

Kathie Lee: Khloe Told Me at the Wedding That Kim's Marriage Would Only Last 6 Months (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 1st 2011 3:40PM
As a heartbroken nation grapples with the devastating news that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are divorcing after only 72 days, Kathie Lee and Hoda were there to help pick up the pieces. On the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 10AM ET on NBC), the ladies talked about the public backlash against the Kardashian reality wedding spectacle, and Kathie Lee revealed a telling tidbit that Khloe told her at the wedding.

"At the reception afterwards, Khloe, who always says what she thinks, walked by me and said ... I give it six effing months," Kathie Lee reported. This wasn't the first time Khloe had expressed skepticism about the union. Now while some may hail Khloe as prescient, allow us to point out that her estimate was three effing months off.

Glenn Beck Tears Up In 'Today' Interview With Kathie Lee (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 26th 2011 1:30PM
Glenn Beck left Fox News in June after a bombastic, controversial and highly-rated run in which he leveled relentless and often hysterical criticism at the Obama administration. No longer on the Fox airwaves after advertisers began to drop his show, Beck has moved on to his own media venture, a streaming network called GBTV. He's also got a new novel out called the 'The Snow Angel,' which touches on themes of childhood abuse.

In a fairly surreal meeting of the minds, Beck sat down for a 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) interview with Kathie Lee Gifford, and it didn't take long for him to tear up. Talking about his childhood, he said, "When you live in an alcoholic family or an abusive family, you tiptoe, you don't want to step on any mines," he said, fighting through tears. "Now the 'Today Show' is going to make fun of me again," he continued.

Kathie Lee and Hoda Get Grossed Out Holding a Geoduck (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 21st 2011 4:30PM
It's a slow Friday, so let's pass some time by watching Kathie Lee and Hoda fight over a phallic-looking clam from the Puget Sound called a Geoduck. Filming live in Seattle, the 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) hosts split Geoduck-holding duties, as Kathie Lee got a firm grasp on of the clam's tail and Hoda held on to the shell.

As the slimy creature lived up to its name and started dripping on them, Kathie Lee cracked up as Hoda yelled at her to, "Put it down! I'm trying to save you!" Here's to the weekend.

Kathie Lee Tells Deena and Sammi She Can't Tell the 'Jersey Shore' Guys Apart (VIDEO)

Ahead of the 'Jersey Shore' finale, Sammi and Denna stopped by the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) for a chat with Kathie Lee and Hoda. They watched some slow-motion footage of Deena falling on her face, briefly bonded over their shared love of booze, and then Kathie Lee told them she couldn't tell the 'Jersey Shore' guys apart.

About mid-way through the interview, it became entertainingly clear that neither host has been keeping up with the show, as Hoda asked if they were dating anyone, either from 'Jersey Shore' or outside it. When the producers put a graphic of Ronnie up on the screen, Kathie Lee asked, "Are you guys fighting over him? Who is that, Paulie D?"

'Today' Labiaplasty Discussion Gets Awkward For Everyone Involved (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 14th 2011 1:30PM
Before Kathie Lee and Hoda could even get started on their discussion of an apparently increasingly popular surgical procedure called a Labiaplasty, the 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) camera crew started talking amongst themselves and giggling. Clearly, they could sense the awkwardness that was soon to come, as Hoda was too uncomfortable to talk about it and Kathie Lee outed her mother for having the procedure.

"Hey guys, we don't know what's going on over there, but it must be far more fascinating than what's going on over here," Kathie Lee admonished, before embarking on the awkward talk. "I don't want to talk about this next topic," Hoda said. "If you do, feel free."

After years of toiling on 'Today,' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC), drinking cocktails and interviewing celebrities, Kathie Lee and Hoda finally won an Emmy. Well, sort of. 'Today' won the Emmy for Outstanding Morning Show Program, and even the fourth hour's hosts themselves weren't quite sure they deserved the statues.

"[It's] kind of embarrassing that we get one too. I mean, the people on the earlier hours actually work hard and deserve them, but because we are technically part of the show, they had to give them to us!" Kathie Lee exclaimed.

"It was definitely by default ... but we'll take it," Hoda replied.

Kathie Lee Gifford's been taking a vacation from 'Today' (9AM ET on NBC) this week, and spent part her time off on the set of 'Hot in Cleveland,' filming an upcoming cameo. The location gave Gifford the perfect 'Funny Friday' audience, as Betty White has never met a dirty joke she didn't like.

Gifford told White the joke in her dressing room. It began, "A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel down his pants," and ended with America's lovably crass grandma cracking up. We won't spoil the punchline, but it rest assured, it included them both making their best pirate "Aaarrrr," noises.
