Kathie Lee Gifford has been one of America’s most popular daytime broadcasters for more than 30 years. But in a recent candid interview, the star revealed that her personal life hasn’t recently been so rewarding. Here’s a look at how the 64-year-old opened up her heart.
Born in 1953 in Paris, France, Gifford was raised in Bowie, Maryland, where she developed a passion for singing. And after graduating from Tulsa’s Oral Roberts University with a degree in music and drama, she was hired to showcase her vocals on Name That Tune. She also later appeared on the blink-and-you’d-have-missed-it musical sitcom Hee Haw Honeys.
