Kathie Lee Gifford asks about Martin Short's dead wife
Gifford put her foot in her mouth in May 2012 when she asked Short how long he and his wife Nancy Dolman have been married, clearly unaware that Dolman died in 2010. "We... uh... married 36 years," Short answers. Still clueless, Gifford follows up with, "But you're still in love?" "Madly in love," Short replies. "Why?" Gifford presses. "Because I'm cute," Short jokes, ending the painful exchange. After a commercial break, Gifford apologizes and says that Short informed her during the break that Dolman had died.
