Kathie Lee's Awkward Flub: Asks Martin Short How Dead Wife Is Doing
By Amber Goodhand - RadarOnline.com News Editor
Martin Short appeared on the TODAY show Wednesday morning to promote Madagascar 3 and things took a turn for the worse when Kathie Lee Gifford asked Martin how his wife is doing — who died in 2010.
"And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?" Kathie Lee asked on live television, not realizing the error of her ways.
"We, uhhh, have married 36 years," Martin graciously responded.
"But you're still like, in love," Kathie Lee continued.
"Madly in love, madly in love," Martin said.
Later realizing the gaffe, Kathie Lee took to her Twitter account after the show with a message to Martin:
"I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful."
