Thereâ€™s little that annoys me more than women (loosely used term here) who follow female celebrities and talk about them as if they knew them personally. Â The one thing I have noticed over the years about women who follow celebrities is that they often choose targets of their gossip, much better looking and just much more feminine than themselves. Â They wonâ€™t usually have a problem with a Joy Behar type, Â mannish, fat, ugly, somebody whose mouth you just want to tape up until itâ€™s time for her next feeding. Â And that type of celebrity can say anything they want to say with no remark from them because they have no problem accepting what a woman with whom they can identify says or does.
The last time I knew what Kathie Lee Gifford was doing, she was a co-host with Regis Philbin, and I vaguely remember some scandal involving her husband, Frank Gifford and some bimbo, but itâ€™s come to my attention that she is currently co-hosting The Today Show. Â Certainly, this must be much different from the Katie Couric Today Show that I once knew. Kathie Lee is not a journalist so I canâ€™t imagine what the show is like now. Â
Anyway, itâ€™s all over the blasted Internet that she made some gaffe with her guest, Martin Short, complimenting him on his long marriage and asking the secret to the longevity, etc., all the time not realizing that his wife had passed on in 2010. He politely went along with her questions on the show. So they made a huge deal of this honest mistake, all the time talking about how unprofessional it was, blah, blah, blah, and Iâ€™ve even seen insensitive used to describe the mistake. Itâ€™s either a mistake or itâ€™s a deliberate insensitivity with knowledge that the woman is dead, yet still asking questions about her not caring how it affects the widower, but itâ€™s not both. Â In this case it was a mistake. Â Then they made the issue that she apologized to the wrong Martin Short on Twitter. Â And you can look throughout the blogs on the Internet, Facebook as well as personal blogs, where mannish, dumpy types of broads that canâ€™t stand Kathie Lee are all over her case like vultures for this.
Of course, what they donâ€™t tell you (and maybe they donâ€™t know either. Just because someone is extremely unattractive, it doesnâ€™t mean that they must have made up that deficit with endowment of a brain.) is that the Twitter apology is just the publicity apology for the public to be sure to know that she apologized. Hereâ€™s what Martin Short had to say and the rest of the story. Â Martin Short told her right after the show that she had made a mistake and her apologies were expressed to him on the spot and in person. He didnâ€™t seem to be at all offended, but realized it was an honest oversight. But this other nonsense that only relays the partial story is the typical inaccuracy you get when you listen to jealous, jerky broads, the closest to any celebrity theyâ€™ll ever get to knowing is by clicking their mouse to a gossip page.
