Kathie Lee Gifford’s latest interview with actor and Madagascar 3 star, Martin Short, resulted in an uncomfortable moment when she mistakenly asked about the actor’s late wife.
Nancy Short died of ovarian cancer about two years ago. Gifford, apparently did not get the memo and nonchalantly asks about their relationship, “You and Nancy have got one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years are you guys?”
If this isn’t awkward, then I don’t know what is.
Short simply answered “36 years” and played along. Being the professional that he is, Short apparently filled Gifford in during a commercial break instead of embarrassing her in front of the camera.
When asked about the incident, the actor expressed no animosity towards Gifford, “I think that it’s live television and people make mistakes and there’s no ill will intended” Short said.
Gifford continued her streak when she accidentally tweeted an apology to a Twitter account that did not belong to Short.
Wow, lady. Get it together! Watch the uncomfortable moment below.
