'Today's' Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb Accept Chelsea Handler's 'Half-Hearted' Apology for Flaking on Interview (VIDEO)
The E! talk show host apologized to fourth hour Today show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb for flaking on them for an interview.
“I have to apologize to the Today show because I didn’t show up for an interview and then they saw me on Jimmy Fallon and they were like ‘wha-’ and I lied,” said Handler on her own show, Chelsea Lately. “I’ve been lying to everyone lately about why I didn’t show up. I don’t know – don’t have a good reason.”
“I really am sorry,” she continued. “I’m very professional usually but I just couldn’t make it."
When she appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, the star admitted she had lied to Gifford and Kotb and said she hurt her eye on the shower door. The next day her publicist was quoted saying she was recovering from food poisoning.
Though Gifford called the apology “half-hearted,” both she and Kotb said, “apology accepted.”
