Hoda Kotb Weighs In On Awkward Moment When Nick & Vanessa Lachey Denied They Sent Jessica Simpson a Gift!

Hoda Kotb is opening up about the awkward moment that occurred during her interview with Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

During the Today show interview last week, host Hoda mentioned that Jessica Simpson recently expressed that Vanessa and Nick sent her a gift once during a milestone moment in her life. Vanessa jumped in and denied doing any such thing.

Hoda admitted on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday night (February 12) that she didn’t expect the interview to go that way at all.

“Here’s the thing: When I was interviewing Jessica, she was talking about, like, on what great terms everyone was,” Hoda explained. “Like, ‘I’m so happy for them. I have children. They have children.’ And she mentioned something, I thought, about a gift. So, I was like ‘Oh, so everybody’s happy.’ So when they came, I was like, ‘Isn’t that cool? Everybody’s friends.’ And then that wasn’t the way it was received.”

Hoda, who was joined by her co-host Jenna Bush Hager, said she “didn’t understand what was going on” and “actually was confused.”

Vanessa Lachey recently reacted to a fan calling her out for that Jessica Simpson moment.

Hoda Kotb & Jenna Bush Hager Admit They 'Didn't Think Things Through' During Their Live Weigh-In

Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager are opening up about weighing themselves live on TV.

During a recent episode of Today, the co-hosts decided to step onto a scale in front of viewers to reveal their weights before they began intermittent fasting.

At the time, Hoda weighed 158lbs and Jenna weighed 171lbs.

Now looking back at it, they realized they didn’t think things through, and that it brought up all struggles with body image.

“I, for a second, was transported to when I was like a chubby little girl and found a scale in my mom’s room and weighed myself. And, I, for a moment, was stuck there,” Jenna, who just had a baby in August, shared on Monday’s episode of Today. “All I heard was that. It made me feel kind of bad. I weighed myself, the last time, when I was in college, when I weighted a lot less, so it was a shock, it really was.”

Hoda added: “Look, we feel grateful. Don’t get us wrong. We’re healthy, my God no one knows better how much that matters. There’s something about standing on the scale and watching the number, like, not stop. I was like, ‘Wait, I don’t remember this number.’”

Hoda then went on to say that she and Jenna are now on this health-focused journey to feel better for their kids.

“It taught us a little lesson,” Hoda said. “I do think we’re doing this because we want to feel better. We want to feel better for our girls. We want to feel happier.”

“We teach our girls that they’re so much more than the way we look,” Jenna added. “That they’re brilliant and interesting and funny and smart and caring and compassionate and that there’s so much more in life than a number on the scale.”

Hoda Kotb & Jenna Bush Hager Weigh Themselves on TV Before Starting Intermittent Fasting

Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager are beginning their intermittent fasting experiment, and they’re tracking their progress by weighing themselves on live TV.

The 55-year-old and 37-year-old Today co-stars stepped onto a scale in front of viewers on Monday (November 18) to begin their fast.

For Hoda, the scale read 158 pounds, and for Jenna, 171 pounds.

“This is why I don’t really weigh myself…I think I weigh twice as much as my sister. Like, two Barbaras could fit in me,” Jenna joked.

The two will begin their intermittent fasting diet, in which they don’t eat solid foods for about 16 hours per day.

“We’re doing it to be healthy, and to also improve our brain health and everything else,” Jenna explained in the segment.

Jenna Bush Hager to Replace Kathie Lee Gifford as Hoda Kotb's 'Today' Show Co-Anchor

A few months ago, Kathie Lee Gifford announced that she would be stepping away from the fourth hour of the Today show as a longtime co-host with Hoda Kotb.

NBC has announced that Jenna Bush Hager will take over for Kathie Lee and co-host the fourth hour with Hoda.

“It feels humbling and I can’t believe it,” Jenna said. “My dad [former President George W. Bush] just wrote me three words, which made me weep. He said, ‘Very proud dad.’ Which I’m like, what is there to be proud about? I’m just drinking wine in the morning!”

Jenna then offered some words for Kathie Lee, saying, “You have been such a role model and so generous with your time. … You are beloved here in so many ways and if I can use some of your grace and have a half of what you’ve done, my life will be a very happy one.”
