Hoda Heads To New Orleans Over The Weekend

Hoda Kotb made a trip to New Orleans over the weekend as she talked with a group of Asian Journalists and then attended FestiGals, which is a four-day festival offering a full range of inspirational seminars, empowerment workshops and networking opportunities designed to showcase the New Orleans cultural scene for an experience that usually only insiders ever get to see.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: Bears Gone Wild

With the viral videos of the day, Kathie Lee and Hoda have gone to the bears. One video was of a baby bear that snuck into a garage and was swinging from the garage door. The Mama Bear heard the baby and opened the door and the baby came down in trouble…too cute. The second video was of two bears wrestling each other in someone’s backyard…scary, but it was mating season!

Kathie Lee & Hoda: Woman Sues 11-Year-Old Baseball Player

In New Jersey, a woman was hit with a baseball while attending a Little League game. The players were having pitching practice and the pitcher overthrew the ball to the catcher and it flew into the stands and hit this woman. The woman is suing the 11-year-old boy for $150,000, which is ridiculous! Kathie Lee and Hoda said their is an assumption of risk and people must be aware of personal risk when entering a baseball park. The woman’s attorney must prove that the kid was maliciously throwing the ball at her, so good luck with that!
