Our favorite TV presenter Kathie Lee Gifford lost her 29 years husband five years ago and was heartbroken during that moment.
Kathie Lee Gifford is best known as the host of the talk show Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee and the fourth hour of NBC’s Today show she ran for 11 years along with Hoda Kotb.
She is no longer involved in shows but went on to do other things she loved like writing and acting.
The last time she wrote the script of the movie ”Then Came You” and this is about a widow who was trying to move on from her past and all the grief and create new memories.
Many believe that she wrote the movie in a night and it all depicts her life. During an interview, she confirmed the rumors, and autobiography and doesn’t depict her life but is a nice reminder for those who lost their partners that they should continue living their life.
Kathie suffered yet another loss this year when she lost her long-time and close friend Regis Philbin.
She took to her Instagram to honor her longtime on-air partner saying, “There are no words to fully express the love I have for my precious friend, Regis. I simply adored him and every day with him was a gift,” she wrote. “We spent 15 years together bantering and bickering and laughing ourselves silly—a tradition and a friendship we shared up to this very day. There has never been anyone like him. And there never will be.”
In an interview with Today, Gifford said how she and Regis “never had one crossword,” and added, “We had the same sense of humor, and we just took off like a rocket … we just wanted to sit there and have fun together.”
Gifford has had her share of grief, but life still seems to be getting better. Her two kids, whom she had with her husband Frank, got married. Her son Cody, 30, married his girlfriend of seven years, Erica, and daughter Cassidy, 27, married her high-school sweetheart Ben.
Their father missed such a sight of seeing his kids all doing well but as Gifford said, his spirit could be felt.
In an interview, Gifford revealed she has been on a few dates and is open to love.
“There’s nothing to talk about,” Gifford said in an interview with USA Today. “If there was, I’d shout from the rooftop like Maria in ‘West Side Story.’ I’d be open to falling in love again. I’d love to. But it hasn’t happened.”
