    • Kathie: I got to go to the White House and had a zit the size of Arkansas.

    • Kathie Lee: To this day I do not believe I'm great at anything.

    • Kathie Lee: What's better than to know your little boy loves his mom?

    • Kathie: I once said the Queen of England could use some fashion advice.

    • Kathie Lee: (About rumours that she airs "Live" braless) Ridiculous! It's extremely cold in our studio, so you could be wearing a steel harness and you'd still have a little action, if you know what I mean. I do not like industrial-strength push-up bras. I wear very flimsy things. Besides, what 46-year old woman who's nursed two kids goes braless?

    • Kathie Lee: I change my hairstyle every day for the show, I'm fastidious and vain about my nails and teeth and grooming and makeup, but a perfect body, forget it. Dust to dust, wuggies to wuggies.

  • alcoholics?

    Never could figure out the purpose of these 2 women having wine glasses in front of them. Its morning for God sakes . Why promote alcohol on a descent show? There are people out the that do have problems with drinking. Even if its for looks and just juice, why say its wine.. I know its your freedom of rights, but really coming from such a "godly" person Kathy. I guess I dont understand all the garb that goes with these shows. Next we'll see Al and Matt with a wine glass in front of a coffee not against drinking so much as to see how it being promoted to be cool. And then you have young ones wanting to try it. I cant think of another show that has wine on the desk, but Im sure there venting. When u know an alcoholic, its hard to hear them go on about the whole wine in class thing on morning show.moreless
