I’m watching Hoda and Kathie Lee right now, and I realized something. I don’t hate Kathie Lee! I know I may have suggested in the past that the Hoda and Kathie Lee hour was something of a trainwreck, and that Kathie Lee was a lush, and not in a good way. But after having become more familiar with the show, I finally get it.
Kathie Lee is just like me! She likes drinking, she doesn’t take her job too seriously, and she likes to give Hoda shit about everything. Just replace “Hoda” with “Liz” and you have the legendary chemistry that has made L&L such a mild success! Plus, even though Hoda is obviously the better TV journalist, Kathie Lee is the one who keeps things interesting by talking about inappropriate topics, flashing her cleavage, hitting on guests, and talking about her love of booze.
I think I even prefer Kathie Lee and Hoda’s inappropriate banter to Mike and Juliet’s these days….I know, shocking, right?
