Kathie Lee Reserves Butt Bumping For Bloggers

kathie lee.jpgYesterday, when we met Kathie Lee Gifford on the “Today” show’s fourth hour, she informed us she wasn’t shaking hands because of the threat of swine flu. Apparently, this rule only pertains to “Today” show guests because the outspoken talk show anchor had no trouble showing Jimmy Fallon some love.

Last night, Gifford appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and not only shook the host’s hand but also hugged and kissed him.

“You were going for the double high five, he went in for the kiss,” Gifford’s co-host Hoda Kotb said this morning as the women rehashed the appearance on the “Today” show.

“Well he hasn’t heard about our ‘heinie’ that’s why,” Gifford said, referring to the “heinie bumping” she told us about yesterday.

Well, we see how it is Kathie Lee.
