Kathie Lee & Hoda: Scandalous Preview & Olympics
With NBC and The Today Show focused on the London Olympics 2012 for the past two weeks, it was a chance for soem time off for Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. While on their “vacation,” Kathie Lee worked on her new musical Scandalous, which is coming to Broadway and Hoda traveled to the London Olympics 2012 to take on some requests fans sent in on their Facebook page.
Hoda at London Olympics 2012
Before the London Olympics 2012 even began, Kathie Lee and Hoda had a campaign on their Facebook page to send Hoda to the Olympics. It worked and Hoda went and took on some of the challenges that fans asked her to do.
While in London, Hoda visited Piccadilly Circus and got fans to sing Everybody Has A Story, one of Kathie Lee’s favorite songs. Fans wanted her to meet the Queen, which was something she failed at doing.
During her time in London, she also hit the local watering holes. She met rhythmic gymnast Julie Zetlin and had High Tea with Meredith Vierra. Her and Meredith then hit a pub and had some ale.

For her Olympic vacation, Kathie Lee Gifford stayed at home in Connecticut and worked on Scandalous. She said there has been over several thousand re-writes. She put it together with scissors and tape, not cut and paste like most people do on a computer.
Kathie Lee said she is thrilled to have Carolee Carmello in the starring role and she was born to be this role. We got a look as Kathie Lee headed into the first day of callbacks for the show. She said she is looking forward to November 15 2012 and she is watching Scandalous on Broadway. Kathie Lee said we are going to try not to be obnoxious about it, but for the next three months she can’t guarantee it.
