Kathie Lee And Hoda Reportedly Having 'Tension'; NBC Pushes Back At Rumors Of Rift

On Friday, TMZ reported that the two are at odds over potentially moving the fourth hour of "Today" to Los Angeles. The celebrity gossip site wrote that Gifford has been lobbying for the move, while Kotb is adamant about staying in New York City. Earlier, Page Six reported that Kathie Lee and Hoda's two week stint in Los Angeles was a test run for a permanent move, though "Today" denied the rumor.

kathie lee must have delusions that she will move to California and her career will skyrocket

by Anonymousreply 102/16/2013

Hoda was an outstanding reporter. They must have offered her a well-paying contract to have to put up with that bitch five days a week. When Meredith left Today, Hoda should have been given the job instead of Ann.

Nasty drunks.

by Anonymousreply 302/16/2013

I agree, R2. Hoda was always a talented reporter. It's a shame she was paired with that right-wing cunt and lost all her credibility in the process of the fourth hour Today Show silliness.

I always enjoyed her more serious work as part of NBC News/Dateline.

I read on another website that Kathie Lee was pushing to move the fourth hour of 'Today' to Los Angeles so that she could be closer to her kids. Perhaps her kids go to college in California.

Hoda wants no part of moving the show west.

by Anonymousreply 702/16/2013

I don't think anyone will hold the fourth hour of Today against Hoda if she were to return to serious reporting.

Most of the people who watch H&KC aren't hard news viewers.

KL is a cunt, but I'm not sure I feel sorry for Hoda, she's defended homophobes too much for my liking. Maybe old Hodes is just getting what she deserves.

Really? She's always hit me as a live and let live type, but does this include phobes?

by Anonymousreply 1102/16/2013

It does include phobes r11, that's exactly the way to put it. Phobes aren't bigots as far as she's concerned, it's just their opinion. As if the hypocrite would say the same thing about racists. That's how she defended Carrie Prejean, she said she was raised to believe homosexuality is wrong. And, that excuses it? People are raised to be racist too. She (along with Kathie of course) has defended other homophobes, I can't remember which, but it's come up in other threads.

One of them will storm off set live in the next year and quit/be fired.

Mark my words.

by Anonymousreply 1302/16/2013

If they did it from California, in order to be live on the east coast, they'd have to be working at 7AM. Kathie Lee didn't even have to be that early on the Regis show.

Working from the West Coast, Kathy Lee can get an earlier start on her drinking.

So in other words Kathie Lee's kids moved 3000 miles to get away from her, and yet she is trying to uproot this entire show just so she can be near them. Can't imagine having her for a mom.

KL will get fired. No way they will let that show come out of LA with all the dingbats out there.

R12 Wow, I didn't realize what cunts both of them are. They can just cancel the fourth hour altogether as far as I'm concerned.

If you people only knew about the fabulous film and TV roles I've had to turn down because I'm 3000 miles away!

I don't think NBC has anyone that can switch between serious questions and morning-show silliness like Hoda Kotb.

And she's not a 'phobe. She's spoken at the Nat'l Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association, she's played drag volleyball on Rehoboth Beach, and she's got lots of gay friends.

If they jettison Lauer from TODAY, she'd be a great replacement.

Why the Hell should Hoda have to relocate for this woman? Is she that powerful? Is she the real White Oprah?

If I were Kathie I would be taking care of my aging hubby full time and let somebody else do the 4th hour with Hoda.

Doesn't she have enough money?

by Anonymousreply 3203/03/2013

Enquiring mind R32, no one in her family can stand her. If she didn't have a job, she'd have to spend all day being driven around in her town car. No one wants to be around the miserable cunt.

How sad it is that you are absolutely right. If she acts like that on the air can you imagine how she acts at home.

I remember her first husband Paultalking about how impossible she was to live with.

I think she may have turned him gay. But he denies it. (being gay) Not that anybody can really turn anybody gay but in this case...

Sorry for my non drunken rambling...

And that's why she's such a good reporter. The reporter isn't supposed to be the story. A good interviewer knows how to put the entire focus on the guest. That's what Hoda does. That's what Kathie Lee doesn't.

Exactly.

Perhaps KLG knows Hoda out classes her due to her journalist background and dignified manner and snipes at her out of sheer jealousy.
