Elaine Stritch Stuns Kathie Lee With The F-Bomb on Today (VIDEO)


Show business legend Elaine Stritch recently stopped by NBC’s The Today Show to promote her new documentary.  However, she drew headlines for a whole other reason when she dropped an “F-bomb” that failed to get bleeped. 
 
The veteran comedienne used the term to answer a question co-host Kathie Lee asked about Stritch being known for her “big mouth.”  Having been aware of said mouth, the flabbergasted host maybe should have rethought her line of questioning!
 
Watch the clip below to see Kathie Lee and Hoda look ridiculously uncomfortable. 

Matt Lauer is Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson For Halloween (PHOTOS)



The hosts of the Today Show dressed up as classic TV characters for Halloween. Al Roker pitied viewers by dressing up as Mr. T.

Everyone's favorite morning lushes, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb dressed up as The Flinstone's Wilma and Betty. Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales rolled around the set as Laverne and Shirley; while Carson Daly had a bit of help from Erik Estrada for his CHiPs costume.

However, it was Matt Lauer's choice of Pamela Anderson circa Baywatch that may have been the most surprising to viewers. He wasn't the only fan of Baywatch. Willie Geist dressed up as David Hasselhoff's character. See more photos and a video from Today's Halloween show after the jump!


Kathie Lee Gifford Would go Back to School to Get Rabbinical Degree



Kathie Gifford dropped by The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on Fox News and revealed if she had it to do all over again she'd go back to Hebrew University and study the Scriptures.

"If I could go back to college, I'd probably go to Hebrew University in Israel and study for however long it took to get my rabbinical degree. Because I started studying the Scriptures that way, through the eyes of a rabbi and through the Middle Eastern eyes and it's transformed my life."


Contrast that to the  Gifford who we love boozing it up with Hoda during the fourth hour of Today


Today’s Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford to Pen New York Daily News Column

Is Hoda Kotb Leaving Today?


Is Hoda Kotb leaving Today? According to a report at EW.com, Kathie Lee Gifford's drinking pal has put out some feelers. 

EW has learned exclusively that the Today co-host is quietly meeting with studios and pitching herself for new hosting gigs, such as a daytime talk show. The moves could signal an upcoming exit from the NBC position that she’s held since 2007, or simply represent a savvy negotiation tactic — Kotb’s contract with Today expires this fall.

Kathie Lee and Hoda Talk About Grooming Their Hello Kitties For Nine Minutes on Today


Somewhere Jane Pauley is opening up a Microsoft Word document to delete her time on this show right off her resume. On Friday's episode of Today, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb spent almost an entire act of the morning show's fourth hour discussing their grooming habits "down there".

This madness only transpired after Gifford shrieked an Irish song at the top of her lungs in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Sweet mother of Moses. Watch the televised trainwreck after the jump!
 

 

Are Kathie Lee and Hoda FEUDING Over Where Fourth Hour of Today is Taped?


Are The Today Show's favorite fourth hour boozehounds at odds over where their program is taped? According to TMZ, Kathie Lee Gifford wants to relocate production of the fourth hour of Today to Los Angeles, while co-host Hoda Kotb is hellbent on keeping the show in New York.  From the report:
"Both women are really strong, so tension is almost inevitable," says one source.  For now, they've reached a compromise ... they would do the show for a few weeks here and there in L.A., but we're told Kathie Lee is unbending -- she wants to make the move.
