Kathie Lee Gifford Joining The Today Show

Kathie Lee Gifford is joining The Today Show as a co-host of the fourth hour with Hoda Kotb. Her morning show duties begin April 7.

Gifford, now 54, left Live with Regis and Kathie Lee to pursue her singing career and spend time more with her family in July 2000. Kelly Ripa was named the permanent co-host February 2001.

WILL YOU TUNE INTO NBC to watch Katie Lee’s return to the small screen?

My loyalty to GMA just increased 1000%!

# 2

You’ve got to be kidding me. The Today show just lost all credibility with me….

In the words of Monica Geller: “Botched botox!”

I don’t get why people dislike her. I never had a problem with her when she was with Regis, and I think she was treated very poorly by the media. Congrats to her.

she’s hideous

# 6

I’m with you #4 I like her, She looks great.

# 7

I don’t think she ever did anything related to singing after she departed.

One more reason not to watch The Today Show.

I used to watch her with Regis and she can be funny and she is pretty but I can only take her in very small doses. She brags too much and comes off as sickening sweet instead of genuine.

next.

YES! I enjoy Kathie Lee. I liked her on Regis and haven’t watched that much with Kelly Ripa on it. Kathie Lee did take a bad rap from the media shows – much like Rosie O’Donnell does. Not that Rosie doesn’t say things she shouldn’t (same with Kathie Lee)but the media only follows the negative with her and did similar with Kathie Lee. Kathie Lee is still involved with her New York (I think it’s in New York) charity for babies born with HIV and she has recorded CD’s since 2000. You haven’t heard about these because it’s positive stuff which proves my point re: the media. You would have heard of Kathie Lee more had these things been negative things!!

What about her music career? “One Hot Menopausal Mama” was such a classic.

She’s been wanting to return to television for awhile. Does this mean she’ll be in an opposing time slot to “The VIew”? Hope so….it’s time to get those collective biddies off the air and Kathy Gifford will be a lot more entertaining.

When she left Regis and Kathie Lee, I thought she said, she wanted to stay out of the limelight.
I won’t be watching The Today Show. I can’t stand her bragging.JMO

God no. I cannot stand that woman. Watch ANY rerun of her on Regis and you can see how ANNOYING she is. She is one of those people like Rosie O’Donnel who need attention at all times and basically become unchecked and obnoxious just to get the focus on them.

Now I can’t watch the Today show…. oh vomit.

She deserves to look dignified and not be judged as a beauty. But her personality… why would they want her to talk???

Well, I guess I won’t be watching the Today show any more! She is so irritating and phony! Can’t stand her.

No I won’t be watching – and it was the only part of the Today Show I ever watched. The only thing that could be worst – would be Rosie returning to the View.

KLG is a phony pompous b*tch……

Meredith Viera is bad enough – they can’t find a young person to fill in……I don’t watch much anymore and I certainly won’t when Kathie Lee is on. She likes to brag about her kids and her “old” husband. If she is 54 then he is 77…..Yikes, maybe I’d go back on tv to get away from that!!! She is a horrible interviewer. When she was on GMA she was interviewing a man that was a wrongful convicted felon and she had him and the so called victim on and she asked the the guy if he wanted to hug the victim and forgive her…gross!!!! She is horrible.

What a shame! I am only watching the Early Show now.

TODAY’s show was a big part of my morning….

I will TUNE it out, and TURN it OFF, becuz KLG turns my stomach….

It is not a bad media rap, simply watch her YOURSELF…..she is completely self absorbed, and lacking in talent!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!

I WAS HAPPY WHEN SHE LEFT REGIS’ SHOW AND I’LL BE HAPPY AGAIN WHEN SHE EXITS THE TODAY SHOW….GIVE THE VIEWERS A BREAK…..

I will not be watching the Today show anymore……I just can not stand to watch Kathie Lee. She is just so fake and annoying. She wants all of the attention all of the time.
