Kathie Lee Gifford recently dished on a feud she had with Howard Stern. But according to the actress, Howard hated her and she had no idea why.
Gifford said Howard “had a feud with me going on twenty years. I never met him. I never listened to his show.” Gifford claims that the talk show host hated her, her husband, her family, and everything she stood for, but for reasons entirely inexplicable.
However, one day she had a chance to say hello to him during his time as an announcer of America’s Got Talent. Gifford said that she realized it was her perfect chance to say something.
Gifford admitted it was a harrowing experience because Stern is 6’6″, incredibly tall, and she is just 5’5″. Nevertheless, she approached him anyway and wished him all of the best regarding his show.
Stern allegedly was so shocked by her curtness that he reached out to her later in the future. The talk show host called and left her a message for her to call him.
Of course, she called him back and subsequently said sorry for the way he had talked about her during all of those years. However, this isn’t the first time Gifford has talked about it.
According to the actress, Stern told her that he was sorry and that he was just mad at her because she was “everything that he wasn’t.” During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Gifford claimed the host told her, “you just p*ssed me off because you were everything that I wasn’t.”
