The star is very confident, and so, nothing negative anyone out there may say affects her. This is what Kathie Lee Gifford wanted her audience to know!
During Thursday’s Today episode, the co-host slammed the haters that have been body-shaming her for becoming too thin!
‘There are so many people who say in writing, ‘Oh you are so skinny now, you are too skinny. Are you sick?’ And I think I will just put it out there — I’m so happy. I’m thrilled to be so fit, so healthy and so hopeful. Sue me! Sue me if that bothers you,’ Kathie Lee said.
She went on to assure the viewers that not only is she healthy but she has medical proof as well.
‘I’ve had 3 doctor’s appointments in the last two weeks. [I am] healthier than I have ever been in my entire life. More fit, happier, more excited. I’m doing work 10 times than what I used to do when I was in my 20s, and if that is upsetting to people they have to look at themselves, why [that is.]’
That is when the woman shaded all of those who have been criticizing her physical shape by saying: ‘The real people in my life, the ones whose opinions actually matter, are thrilled for me. Everybody else — their opinion doesn’t matter.’
As for the reason why Gifford is slimmer than fans are used to, the woman explained that ‘I did a major motion picture that I wrote, based on a woman who’s newly widowed — she’s been widowed for a year — and she’s a runner. I started getting in shape for that movie last fall because I knew we would shoot it in the spring. That’s what actresses do.’ Straight to the point!
