Kathie Lee on “That One Huge, Horrendous, Stupid Mistake”…P.S. Barbara Walters Loves You

KathieLee_4.8.jpgLast night on her SIRIUS satellite radio show, Barbara Walters talked with newly anointed Today show anchor Kathie Lee Gifford about her new gig and her old wounds:

Gifford: “I love my kids, I have a very deep faith in God, I love my country, I forgave my husband a terrible mistake and I was completely exonerated from any sweatshop charges. So you say to yourself: ‘remind me now of what it is that I did that was so awful?’ And I don’t know what the answer to that would be.”

Walters: “How do you get over that? Because all of those things are true and you became almost a joke. And you’re not. I happen to love you and you know it.”

Gifford: “You have to live in your own truths. I knew what kind of man my husband is, and was and will be. You all have known Frank forever…”

Bill Geddie: “He’s a great guy.”

Gifford: “He is one of the dearest, kindest most loving men. And he broke my heart, he ripped my heart out — but when I would measure what he has given me in my life with that one huge, horrendous, stupid mistake. He suffered enough for it. I wish people could forgive it and forget it like I have.”
