Hoda Kotb
Hoda Kotb recently gave a rare glimpse into her love life by opening up about her boyfriend of two years, Joel Schiffman.

When People magazine played a game of word association with the "Today" show co-host she said he comes up when she hears the word "love."

Kotb gushed: "It's one of the most natural relationships I've ever been in."

The TV personality and financier met at a Wall Street event and dated quietly before Kotb revealed his name earlier this year. She admits she feels giddy around him.

"He's a guy that gives me butterflies again at 50-years-old," she explained.

Kathie Lee Gifford's 'Today' Show Return Amidst Tears, Talk Of L
Kathie Lee Gifford returned to the "Today Show" desk on Monday for the first time since her husband Frank Gifford's untimely death on Aug. 9.

"He would want you to know that he died in complete peace," Gifford said of her late husband, who died at the age of 84.

Hoda Kotb Cries: ‘Today’ Host Sobs While Discussing Death of Kat
It’s always rough when Hoda Kotb cries, and Monday’s episode of Today was an especially rough one. According to People, the episode was a tribute to Frank Gifford, Kathie Lee Gifford’s husband, who had just passed away on Sunday.

Hoda dedicated quite a large segment of the show to speaking about Frank, and how Kathie Lee was holding up (Kathie Lee wasn’t on the show on Monday).

“She is remarkably strong, I’m in awe of her even today,” said Hoda. Fighting back tears, she told the story of how she found out Frank had died. Hoda was sorting through a massive list of birthday wishes on her ph...

Regis And Kathie Lee Reunite As Philbin Joins 'Today' Show's Fou
The King and Queen of morning television are together again!

It was announced on Thursday's edition of 'Today' on NBC that Regis Philbin, who has made guest appearances in recent months on the fourth hour of the program, will be joining the show as a special contributor.

The move means Philbin will now be appearing next to former co-star Kathie Lee Gifford on a regular basis.

Philbin and Gifford dominated the morning airwaves on 'Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee' from 1985 to 2000 on ABC. Gifford left 'Live' to spend more time with her family in 2000, and Philbin followed suit in 2011.

Melissa Rivers: Kathy Griffin 'S--t All Over My Mother's Legacy'
Melissa Rivers is not the biggest fan of Kathy Griffin right now. Griffin quit "Fashion Police" in March after that whole Zendaya hair thing, and now Melissa's coming out and saying it - she didn't like the way Griffin left the show.

Or, in her own words- "She kind of s--t all over my mother's legacy."

"My biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of s--t all over my mother's legacy in her statement on leaving," Melissa told Hoda Kotb in a recent interview (via Us Weekly).

"And I know that that was not an intentional reading of it, but that's how I felt...That was my takeaway, by [...

Regis Philbin & Hoda Kotb Share Awkward Kiss For 'Twizzler Chall
The "Twizzler Challenge" is the new "Ice Bucket Challenge" to raise money for autism research, and Regis Philbin and Hoda Kotb made out on national television to promote the cause.

The Twizzler Challenge takes its cue from "Lady and the Tramp." Two people eat a single Twizzler licorice and meet in the middle and kiss.

"Let me look at your lips," Philbin said on "Today" Monday morning, putting his arm on Kotb's shoulder. "She could swallow me. Honest to God, something's going to happen here. I've never seen lips like that."

Kathie Lee Giffords commented, "She's got nice lips, they're Egyp...

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb
Daytime talk show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb ended their on-air sobriety yesterday with a booze fest.

The pair was challenged in early January to refrain from drinking during the show by Ladies Home Journal. The two generally drink through the show, which airs from 11 am to noon.

"We have a big dilemma … I think we should have gone for February, the short month, but apparently, it’s January," bemoaned Kathie Lee.

Of course, the two were allowed to drink off-camera and in their private lives. Apparently, the one hour ban was enough to make them cranky. Today host Savannah Guth...
