KATHIE LEE GIFFORD made a pretty huge mistake on the "Today" show yesterday. She and HODA KOTB were interviewing MARTIN SHORT and Kathie Lee started asking him about his wife.
--She said, quote, "You and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?"
--The thing is, Martin's wife DIED TWO YEARS AGO. But he didn't correct her. He just kind of rolled with it. He said, quote, "We, uh . . . married . . . 36 years."
--Kathie Lee replied, quote, "But you're still, like, in love," and Martin replied, quote, "Madly in love."
--Kathie Lee said, quote, "Why?" . . . and Martin answered, quote, "Cute. I'm cute."
--Kathie Lee later apologized for her error on-air, saying Martin corrected her after the interview. But he wasn't upset at all. In fact, he told her that he had one of the greatest marriages . . . and he STILL DOES.
