Andy Cohen bonds with Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today.'

on May 17, 2010

I had such a fun morning at the Today show, and I gotta say that Kathie Lee Gifford is a fountain flowing with goodness and quotables. She really does remind me of an Orange County Housewife.

She took me into her dressing room and showed me photos of Cassidy and Cody, about whom I remember hearing ad infinitum on Regis and Kathie Lee. Now they're all growed up and quite attractive. Cody's girlfriend competed in Miss USA last night (Miss Wyoming, ya know) and KLG says they've been together two years.

Kathie Lee told Hoda on the air that the pageant seemed "more substantive" when she hosted it years ago. I love that quote! 

I had a really mellow weekend — I worked out a lot and tried kickboxing for the first time. Damn that is hard. I am throwing out the first pitch at this Friday's St. Louis Cardinals game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis and I am so excited I can barely sleep. Literally. I hope I don't make an ass out of myself and my family.

I have gotten many e-mails and tweets from people enjoying the madness of last week's Watch What Happens Live. I love it that LuAnn let her hair down and went for it. The New York 'wives rip each other's faces off on the sidelines of fashion shows, and tonight you'll see what happens when the Jersey wives hit fashion week. FUN!
