Kathie Lee Gifford gave me pinkeye

Hi, I'm a [airquotes] Mommy Blogger[/airquotes].

I thought my face was going to pop off when I watched the big Today Show interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and the lovely bloggers, Mir, Jill, Kristen and Heather.

But, then I realized that it was actually a sinus infection and pink eye.

Oh, yes, I'm really a five year old.

However, now that I think about it, I'm not sure which came first, my illness or that segment.

I blame Kathie Lee.

Or maybe it was all that yapping on the phone you mommys tend to do.


I'd totally blame Kathie Lee.

Thanks for posting the link. I kept meaning to go find it but you saved my lazy butt from doing it!

Kathie Lee...

I rarely say mean things about anyone but she was a crappy person to interview anyone talking about something in this century. (Is it just me or is she so 80's? And not in a good way.) She acted like she was going to get cooties from Heather. Poor Heather, I can only imagine what she was thinking as they started promoting the next segment like that.

Another vote for Kathie Lee. She needs to get off my tv, now.

What she said was unbelievable. Someone send that woman a note informing her we are in the 21st century now. She has teenage kids--don't they educate her on these things?

seriously, I felt the same way. KLG is not a smart woman in my book....

I cannot believe The Today Show has added her to their interviewing line up. She was over when she left Regis. She has no idea what she is talking about. She's beyond ridiculous. And ignorant.

She is totally to blame for your infection. Feel better soon.

Well, according to Kathie Lee, it very well have been your computer. They ARE scary AND evil, you know!

How awesome to click hear and see this because I hardly ever watch any of the morning shows anymore and I read yours and Mir's blog everyday so it was cool to see her there. Heather did an awesome job and was so sweet and gracious in the face of such a ditz.

She is sickening, isn't she?

Kathie Lee just doesn't get it.

It was unreal. You do know Kathie Lee has a problem with computers, don't you? And that Heather is "reviled by everyone" ? I was stunned when 'The Today Show' hired her. I'm stunned every time she opens her mouth. What a tool. I didn't think the other reporter did a very good job with the other bloggers either....why do they treat you all like there's something wrong with you or you're trying to pull a fast one? Very strange. They should talk to your legions of fans. That would be eye-opening.

Kathy Lee Gifford= Idiot

Me watching KLG on the Today show= Brain bleeding out my ears

I already had a suspicion that the Today Show hired KLG just so maybe they could get Katie Couric back -- that Katie could take "getting rid of KLG for us" as an excuse to leave CBS News.

Now I remember why I never watched Regis and Kathie Lee. UGH!

We don't watch Kathie Lee -- does that mean we got it from YOU?

My three have been sent home from school this week with pinkeye :( fun fun!

For someone who continually talked about and showed pictures, video, etc., of her kids virtually from conception, KLG had a lot of nerve pushing the "Leta" issue with Heather. Kathie Lee has become even more irrelevant that I previously thought possible. Oh, and the pink eye - most definitely her fault!!

It gave me a cold sore.

Ironic isn't it that this is the same woman who shared every possible revolting detail about her children with us and SHE looks down her nose at Heather?

Kathie Lee of all people worries about protecting the privacy of children? She blabbed way more, on TV, everyday reaching an audience of MILLIONS. Wow. Wow.

I don't often cross-comment, but this is what I left on a different blog about this very subject:

"Kathie Lee made herself look, quite frankly, like a dumbass. First, with her little innocent "I don't know nuthin' 'bout no computers, Miss Scarlett" act, then with challenging Heather about posting her daughter's photo on the web, when she herself trotted her children out shamelessly at every opportunity when they were younger. I thought Heather handled her very well, though."

At least ten years ago, when Oprah did a show about using email and the internet, she likened being unable to use a computer in these times to being illiterate in those (before computer) times.

I thought that was a profound statement back then, and sadly, a harsh reality now. My Dad is the same way about computers.

It was definitely The Gif... definitely.

I didn't like her when she was on with Regis.
