January 29th, 2020 under Jessica Simpson, Kathie Lee and Hoda. [ Comments: none ]


Jessica Simpson has a memoir coming out, and in it, she gets real about her life. This morning she spoke to Hoda Kotb on Today about parts of her book that are not easy to read.

The singer was sexually abused by a family friend for six years starting when she was just 6 years old. She knew it was wrong, but she did not know how to tell anyone about it. One day she told her parents, and she never had to go back to his house again. She also says her parents did not know how to talk to her about it.

When she was teenager, she was offered a record deal. They told to lose 15 pounds and that order started her 20-year addiction diet pills.

Also, when she was a teenager, she met Nick Lachey. As soon as she saw him, she knew he was going to be her husband. Together they were good. Yet, when their careers were separate, they were not as good. Her getting all the attention was hard on their marriage. When she couldn’t fake it anymore, they got divorced.

Eventually, she met Eric Johnson, the man of her dreams, and they have three kids together. They looked happy, but she was always drinking. In photos,, it appeared that everything was perfect and that is what she wanted us to see. When the cameras were not flashing, she had no idea what was going on.

Then on Halloween in 2017, she knew she had to stop. She had no idea who got her kids ready for Halloween, and she wanted to be present as a mom. She stopped drinking, went to therapy and got her life back on track. Or maybe you can say for the first time in her life.

Now, she is sober, an author, and she is ready to get back to what she does best. That is singing. She will have new music coming out along with the book. Open book comes out on Febraury 4th.

Breaking News: Hoda Kotb is getting married!
November 25th, 2019 under Kathie Lee and Hoda. [ Comments: none ]


Hoda Kotb had some big news to share on Today today, Joel Schiffman proposed to her while they were on their vacation. Six years and two adopted girls later, they are getting ready to walk down the aisle.

How did Haley Joy, 2, and Hope Catherine, handle the happy news? The recently betrothed couple hasn’t told them yet. Why? She explained, “How am I going to explain (to the girls) your parents are going to get married? We’re still trying to figure out that part.” Once they figure out how to tell them, their girls will be so happy for mom and dad.

No word when they will be getting married, but I am sure we will be hearing all about it on the NBC news show.

Does Kathie Lee Gifford miss hosting Today?
November 14th, 2019 under Kathie Lee and Hoda. [ Comments: none ]


Earlier this year, Kathie Lee Gifford left her job hosting an hour of Today with Hoda Kotb to pursue other things. Yesterday, when she came out of 30 Rock, TMZ caught up with her and asked if she misses the job. She told them, “I miss the people. I don’t miss the job.” Not only that she is happy doing what she does now.

However, I bet she misses of the free alcohol she was getting as much as we miss watching her drinking on the show.

While everyone was focusing on Kathie Lee Gifford leaving Today, her co-anchor Hoda Kotb was keeping her own little secret. She and Joel were expecting their second child.

This morning on Today, Savannah Guthrie revealed that she had some big news to share with everyone. Then she took a phone call from Kotb who announced that she welcomed a girl named Hope Catherine. She did not say when the baby was born but she did say that 2-year-old Haley Joy is enjoying being a big sister.

With that happy news everyone was crying and so are we. Congrats to the mother of two!

BTW Does she have a Kris Kardashian thing going on where she is going to give all of her daughters a first name that starts with an H?
