The 56th hour of the Today show was all about Kris and Bruce Jenner’s separation. Why? Because Kathie Lee Gifford had known about it for “a long, long time” and wanted to give herself a pat on the back for keeping a secret.
“I’m hoping for the family’s sake that they’re gonna be reconciled,” Gifford said of her longtime friends. “They really do love one another.”
Then, with the eyes of the world and a glass of Merlot before her, Gifford put on the ole’ therapist cap and figured out what the what went wrong with Kris and Bruce.
“I think they’ve just been under such unbelievable pressure, but there’s just so many things going on,” she told co-host Hoda Kotb.
“The last time I was at Kris’s house if you walked through her house, in every different room of the house, somebody was meeting with someone about a new deal…If it’s always about the deals, and you can’t find your husband in your house or your wife in your house, or your kids, because there’s so much going on, it’s just gotten out of control.
“Every time I’ve been out there and seen her, I saw him as well,” she continued. “When I was with her and the phone rang, it was Bruce calling in. When I went out to do her talk show this past summer, that’s when we had the chance to really talk about it.
“Who says I can’t keep secrets?”
Congratulations on being discrete about your friend’s marital woes.
