Kathie Lee Gifford Was 'Shocked' by Bruce Jenner's Transition

Kathie Lee Gifford is opening up for the first time on her reaction to friend Bruce Jenner‘s revelation that he will transition into a woman.

“I never saw this coming,” the talk show host said on The Today Show on Monday morning (April 27). She added that she was “shocked by the news.”

Kathie Lee is very good friends with Kris Jenner and she is the godmother of Kendall and Kylie.

“We all want to know how to go forward. We all want to love him through this and we also know there are children who … have to learn how to deal with this,” Kathie added. “If you can imagine the surprise … How do you deal with that? The way you do, ultimately, is when you put love first and try to put yourself in someone else’s high heels, I suppose. Louboutins, in their case.”

    Yes he was very honest with all 3 wives. All she is thinking is how the F*** do i make $$ on this or if she can’t is the real reason she is pissed

    I think Kathie Lee’s & Frank’s transformations rival Bruce’s.

    When it comes to the Kardashians this is all about branding…what is good for my brand…sadly is good business or bad business … If u follow their instagram you’ll see what their brands are all about, each of them, because they all seek dif things…the emotional level will be dealt in private, if I was a 21 or a 17 year old id be so confused and scared, this is a very tough society…I would never call out his younger children on anything, its just not fair to involved a teenager in this sort of things.
