Kathie Lee Gifford Jokes About Dating at 67: ‘I’m Just Looking for a Guy That’s Got Real Teeth’ – It’s been five years since Kathie Lee Gifford said goodbye to her late husband Frank, and now, the TV host and actress is channeling her pain to tell the story of a widow’s loss.
“Loss is loss. Everybody’s details are different, but the power of it is the same. It’s real,” Kathie Lee, 67, said in a new interview with Extra TV. “The deeper you love somebody, the greater your pain you’re going to feel when you lose them.”
“I have dated a little bit,” said Kathie Lee, who added with a laugh: “It’s not been successful.”
Kathie Lee, who now lives in Nashville following her exit from the Today show in April 2019, said earlier this year that she is prepared to find love again.
“Of course I’m open [to dating]!” she told Entertainment Tonight in January. “Who says I’m not dating somebody?”
But even if she does meet her match, Kathie Lee said she would be hesitant to talk about her romantic life in the public. “It could be over by tomorrow,” she quipped, adding that she’s “picky” when it comes to men.
“I don’t expect any man to ever fill my husband’s cleats, nobody will ever be Frank Gifford,” she said. “I’m not looking for that. I’m not looking for anything. If he comes along, I’ll know. I’m not looking, I’m busy.”
During a November 2019 appearance on Today with Hoda & Jenna, Kathie Lee revealed that she had gone “out on a couple of dates.”
