Kathie Lee Gifford, who parted with Regis Philbin eight years ago, was on the Today show this morning to officially announce that she’ll be co-hosting its fourth hour with Hoda Kotb come April 7. And here’s the thing: Watching the Matt Lauer-narrated video that they showed of her career (below), I realized I’m totally okay with that. She’s the good kind of crazy: Outlandish, but composed. She claims she has good chemistry with Hoda, who laughed at her jokes and tolerated her singing at a lunch meeting at the Rainbow Room. We know she’ll never be at a loss for words — especially with son Cody, now 6’3″, going off to college this fall. And, frankly, her legs look better than ever.
Are you ready for Kathie Lee’s return?
