It may go down as one of the biggest embarrassments of live TV. Wednesday on NBC’s “Today Show”, host Kathie Lee Gifford made one big gaffe. While speaking to comedian Martin Short about his marriage to wife Nancy Dolman she asked, “And he and Nancy have got one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”
Short responded, “We… uh… married 36 years.” Why respond so awkwardly? Turns out his wife had passed away in 2010 reportedly while battling cancer with her cause of death not truly being spoken about publicly.
