Kathie Lee & Hoda: Anthony Anderson Co-Hosts & National Ravioli Day


Kathie Lee & Hoda: Anthony Anderson Co-Hosts Fourth Hour Of Today Show

Kathie Lee is still on vacation so Anthony Anderson stopped by the fourth hour of the Today Show to fill in for her.

Yesterday, when Dule Hill was on the show, he used his “Psychos” to try and get Kathie Lee and Hoda some more likes on their Facebook. Well, at the end of the day he was able to get them about 5,000 more likes. Anderson said he could double the number by the end of the show.


Do you think he was able to get 10,000 likes for Kathie Lee and Hoda?

Kathie Lee & Hoda: National Ravioli Day

Hoda and Anthony Anderson were sipping on a strange drink today. Instead of the usual glass of wine, they each had a huge goblet containing the ravioli drink from Buca di Beppo. Anderson said he was actually spending some time at the new Buca di Beppo in Times Square the other night and he ran into Robert De Niro while he was there. And he is heading back over there today because the NYPD and the NYFD are putting on a ravioli eating contest in the restaurant.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: Anthony Anderson Doesn’t Like Country Music

Hoda told Anderson she spent last night at Joe’s Pub where it was country music night. She told Anderson she loves country music because of the lyrics but Anderson told her country music “is rap for hillbillies.”

She tried to demonstrate the lyrical genius of country music by singing the line “if your phone’s not ringing, it’s me.” Anderson had a rap rebuttal though. He sang the lyrics to “Bandz A Make Her Dance.”

Do you think country is rap for hillbillies or is Anderson being a bit ignorant? Let us know in the comments.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: National Proposal Day

Do you think it is a coincidence that National Proposal Day and National Ravioli Day are on the same day? Either way, Hoda wanted to hear how Anderson proposed to his wife of 14 years but he said it wasn’t very romantic. The two had been together for 10 years before they got married, so they both decided to just have a quick wedding in Las Vegas at the Little Chapel of the Flowers.

“After 10 years, she just wanted to be a married woman,” Anderson said.

Anderson told Hoda he likes being married. He likes the sanctity of marriage, he likes having a better half, he likes having a family and he said he is always finding new reasons to love his wife.

Today Show: Katy Perry & John Mayer Breakup

Katy Perry and John Mayer have called it quits but besides that Anderson couldn’t even believe John Mayer was able to get girls at all. Hoda agreed saying he is a serial dater but the worst part of him is that he bad mouths the women in public, on TV or on the radio after he breaks up with them.

Today Show: Baby Food Taste Off

Because Anthony Anderson is on the show Guys With Kids, Hoda decided it would be fun to have a baby food taste off but I am pretty sure she regretted that decision when she tasted the first of the five baby foods. She and Anderson agreed that all of the flavors, especially the beef flavor, were disgusting.
