10 Burning-Questions That I Would Love to Ask Kathie Lee Gifford

Kathie Lee Gifford has command of those feminine traits that make her so lovely. This is her being cute.

A bit about Kathie Lee.

The beautiful, energetic, and always-up, Kathie Lee Gifford was born August 16, 1953. Gifford is a French-born American television talk show host; singer; songwriter and commercial spokesperson. Obviously, whatever she puts her mind to, she accomplishes. And as for her date of birth, I do not care when or where she was born. If Kathie Lee Gifford had been born at 11:30 p.m., on any given Saturday night in a smelly barn on some livestock owner's farm in the middle of Little Rock, Arkansas, it would not matter to me. I would still love her.

Isn't she gorgeous?

Remember "Live" with Regis and Kathie Lee?

If you remember, Kathie Lee was the delightful co-host of "Live" with Regis (Philbin) and Kathie Lee on ABC Television where she received a total of 11 "Daytime Emmy" awards. She also appeared in television advertisements for Carnival Cruise Lines beginning in 1984. Her face and electric, charismatic personality seems to draw viewers to shows and to advertisements--which makes networks and advertisers very happy. Personal note: nothing personal against Kelly Rippa, but who are we kidding? Kathie Lee Gifford is the better female co-host.

April 7, 2008, new pathway for Kathie Lee

On April 7, 2008, Gifford began co-hosting the fourth hour of "Today" alongside Hoda Kotb. She also occasionally appears on the first three hours of Today and is a contributing NBC News correspondent. This segment of "Today" is loosely-formatted as to suit Kathie Lee and Hoda's free spirited personalities which works fine when the show's producers unveil a surprise guest mid-way through the show. Kathie Lee and Hoda make a terrific team as their similar personalities blend each morning.

I started liking Kathie Lee in '93.

I started liking Kathie Lee in 1993 and no matter the show or television special, I made it my business to watch this lovely woman and her alluring smile tell me various ways that I could lose weight by simply eating coconuts or the best wine to drink with my pork chops. It didn't matter. I just got a kick from her flashing brown eyes and always-bubbly personality.
But there is one thing lacking with my appreciation for Kathie Lee Gifford. It is these . . .


10 Burning-Questions That I Would Love to Ask Kathie Lee Gifford


  1. "Does your husband, Frank, manage to stay awake when you are home?"
  2. "Does Frank ever tell you exciting tales about his early days in the NFL with the New York Giants?"
  3. "Do you prefer heels or barefoot when you perform?"
  4. "If I offered you a plate of hot biscuits covered with chocolate gravy would you accept it?"
  5. "Would you have liked to play the role of "Samantha Stephens," on "Bewitched?"
  6. "Kathie Lee, have you ever attended a Civil War reenactment?"
  7. "Are you able to twirl a baton with fire on each end?"
  8. "Would you consider a solo career as a lawyer who defends animals who get in trouble with the law? You know, one of those legal issue shows like "Judge Judy."
  9. "Kathie Lee, as a pretty high school student, was your name ever written with spray paint on the town water tank?"
  10. "What is your all-time favorite deodorant?"

Something to Ponder: how many of you would place bets on whether Kathie Lee would storm-out mid-way of my interview or tough it out until it is finished?

Hi,

I still miss her and her sweet funny ways. I am not crazy about her husband and I am sure everyone knows why.

Have a great weekend.

Great hub, Kenneth, about Kathie Lee. I do like Kelly Ripa, even now with Michael Strahan. At times, we do have to move on to other projects. Thanks for sharing this interesting hub. Voted up!

Interesting question choices! I enjoyed watching Kathie Lee with Regis and I enjoyed the show when Kelly Ripa took her place but I was never a daily viewer. Entertaining hub that brought me back to a time when I would watch the show with my mother when she was alive. Thanks so much for this memory nudge. Blessings!
