Kathie Lee Gifford Says She SAW Taylor Swift Crash That Kennedy Wedding!

| Filed under: TV NewsLove LineTaylor Swift

So Taylor Swift IS a wedding crasher!

The country singer's rep has denied any truth to Victoria Gifford Kennedy's claims that she refused to leave a wedding she wasn't invited to, but Kathie Lee Gifford did a keg stand set the record straight during The Today Show.

The host of NBC's popular morning show was at the Kennedy wedding in question and can personally confirmed that Victoria "said very nicely, 'Please do not come.'"

Listen to her side of the story (above) to get all the deets! It's hard to argue with the woman who was actually present while all the dramz went down, but it sounds like Conor Kennedy deserves to bear more of the blame than Swifty.

Ya see, he had been asked to RSVP months before the event and he waited until "an hour before the wedding" to ask if it's cool to bring his famous girlfriend.

Victoria then told Conor NOT to come, but he did anyway and brought the highest paid celebrity under the age of 30 with him!

Did anyone stop to think that maybe Mz. Swift had no idea that she wasn't welcome in the first place???

Oh well. Live and learn is what they say!

Let's just hope that any offended Kennedys can get past that one time they were forced to hang out with one of the biggest celebrities in the world.

Because who would want to do something like that, right? Ha!

    Since Kathie lee is the brides Step grandmother I think she'd know. And yeah I think it was rude for Taylor to stay. She doesn't really know these ppl and her presence would detract attention away from the bride. It wasn't Taylor's welcome to the Kennedy family party. It was someone else's ( a strangers) wedding. And no I'm not willing to blame her child BF for it. kid is too young to have any sense.

    OH SHIT!!!

    He sound like a privileged Kennedy–rules of etiquette don't apply to them. I think Taylor should get away from this guy as fast as she can.

    Re: lori – Totally agree with you. Not only that, the mother of the bride asked Taylor to leave twice. I would have been mortified if I'd showed up at a wedding and received an icy welcome from the other guests then asked to leave by the mother of bride. You wouldn't have to ask me twice, that's for sure. I would've been so embarrassed and skulked out of there the first time I was asked. And to be honest, I wouldn't have gone in the first place - I would've known - even at age 22 - that to be told by my BF that we're going to go to a wedding in an hour is a rude thing to do.

    I don't know, I still think the Kennedy kid is more to blame than Swift. After all, he was the one invited. Kathie Lee said she saw Taylor waiting out in the hall for Conor and that she didn't even realize any drama had went down. Sounds to me like the entire story was kind of blown out of proportion.

  6. 6

    i thought this was just another made up rumor. well i guess some gossip is true. asked to leave not once but twice. how embarrassing.

    how could ph sell space, knowing he has mocked them in the past, and even moreso, their terrible human rights violations, including the ulitimate violation (see narconon arrowhead).
    shame on you ph!
    you are prob signing onto this scientology charade, arent ya'?
    na-nu. na-nu.
    you are a mess ph!

    Oh come on. Kathie Lee Gifford is a little insane and doesn't do her research. She could just be trying to back the Kennedy's story. Isn't she the one that asked Martin Short about his wife? You know, the one that died??

  9. 9

    Re: Whatever – I totally agree. I think the whole thing is being blown out of proportion. Perhaps she was asked to leave, so she was waiting for her boyfriend to say goodbye to his family before she left where she was. It's not like she was dancing on tables or created a scene. Seems as though someone just wanted press.

    hahahahaha…. ah……. fuck. I hate this shit.

    Jesus Christ thank shit I am not a "celebrity"

    Looks like Taylor Swift is a liar along with her PR lady. It's funny that Swift was described as 'LIKE TALKING TO A GHOST' when asked to leave the wedding twice. Where is Kayne when you need him?

  12. 12

    That is just rude on both their parts.

  13. fancypants66 says – reply to this


    I think its just plain rude to ask someone to leave at a wedding. Obviously, Conor knew the wedding party — it wasn't like they crashed a wedding where they knew no one. 18 year old boys don't know what they are doing the next day much less months in advance, so I'm sure he didn't RSVP. But if the bride's mom came up to them and asked them to leave (which was rude), and then they stayed, that was rude too. I don't know who is 'ruder'. Why would it matter if they stayed? Was there not enough food???

  14. 14

    Victoria Kennedy showed now class at all! Taylor was with an invited guest…she was his guest. Victoria Kennedy is just a vile, jealous, petty person. I mean who asks a guest to leave? So, Taylor did NOT crash the wedding…she was with an invited guest… a Kennedy no less! Victoria is so tacky.

  15. 15

    Let's see . . . Conor Kennedy is a teenager. His parents were going through a long, bitter, complicated divorce when his mother committed suicide 3 months ago. Then his mother's body was illegally exhumed and reburied 1 month ago. Obviously, Conor wrongly assumed his relatives would be glad to see him. He undoubtedly wanted his girlfriend to accompany him to his cousin's wedding reception. I hope the mother of the bride got the attention she was obviously dying for. Maybe Victoria Gifford Kennedy will get used to seeing world famous celebrities some day. "Why you gotta be so mean?"

  16. 16

    Re: fancypants66 – Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!!! if she wasnt invited and crashed a wedding, then refused to leave. How is this anything but her fault. You are clearly a classless heel to side with this less then worthless little slut. She even was wearing white. It doesnt matter about what anyone outside of the wedding party says.
    America needs to remove its rose colered glasses and QUIT kissing Swifts dumb ass. I am trying to decide who is more worthless Taylor swift or Beiber, both are cancers bringing us down.

    Re: Dumpster baby

    wow - "worthless little slut"? you have real issues

    deep personal issues

    this is just perez talking trash again. trying to seem impartial while intentionally stirring the pot

  18. Jenny says – reply to this


    Re: Dumpster baby – Totally agree with your statement. Swift's disingenuous public image is slowly but surely being exposed to all of us. One word that describes her is…..Medusa.

  19. ricemaven says – reply to this


    Since journalism today has no editors, no fact checkers, and no one who writes from research and knowledge, we get this… The other Mrs. Gifford, the Kathie Lee one, is a source that has zero credibility with me. After Ms. Swift's last appearance on the "Today" show, during which KLG made a complete, obnoxious fool of herself trying to sell her son to Taylor (it's on YouTube), anything she says about Ms. Swift is pure jealousy that she does not have that money and the power dating her son. Linguistic precision is also a lost art. Ms. Swift and Mr. Kennedy did not "crash" the wedding. It appears they did "crash" the reception at the Copley, but not the wedding ceremony at the Paulist Center. A clear "manners" violation, if true, but hardly the end of Western Civilization and not worthy of the hype you (and all the other gossip sites) devoted to it.

  20. Mike says – reply to this


    Re: Newshound9 – Yeah, maybe. But, Swift chose to join the clan so I'm sure she can expect this and more to come, without a doubt.


  21. 21

    its family surely they can find one spare chair for the young guy as for the girlfriend indeed DONT COME but if shes there u arnt going to be nasty and say go away i think this family lacks family values rsvp or not they shouldnt be treating them this nasty way..

    i dont see how it was taylors fault clearly she didnt know

  22. Rory says – reply to this


    Whole awkward mess aside, Taylor Swift is seriously a creeper, a modern-day Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. I don't get why you side with her, Perez. You are obviously the type of person this high school level bitch would make fun of behind your back (MAYBE if you were a Kennedy she'd give you a pass) and she's only nice to you so you won't write bad things about her. Anyone can see that.

  23. 23

    Re: wow – she is a slut, she sleeps her way across hollywood and nashville. Now she has set her sights on Washington D.C. why does she just assume everybody loves her and will give her a pass. And why isnt she being charged with statutory rape, that kid she's dating is a RISING Jr in High School. Thats borderline pedophelia and against Mass. state laws

  24. ali says – reply to this


    she started dating this kid when he was 17. HES STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL. thats just weird. how desperate is she? theyve been dating for a month and a half and already she spends all her time with his family. he isnt even a prominent kennedy. the kennedy schlossbergs are the real successful ones.
    stop trying to not blame taylor. she was ASKED to leave. which i completely understand. like you said, shes a huge star. she took the spotlight away from the bride. which is horrible. she should have respected the brides wishes, and left. shes just a slut shaming hypocrite. if someone did this to her, she'd write a whole album on them
    she just makes me uncomfortable. she writes these songs about guys that she only dated for a few months. like they were the loves of her life, like come on how clingy can you get. she always talks about how guys hurt her, maybe she should take a step back and ask why these things keep happening to her? maybe cause shes batshit crazy?
    she'll fizzle out in a few years. have you heard her new song? 'we are never ever getting back together' i thought someone was making fun of her when i saw that, but then i listened AND THATS REALLY THE NAME OF A 20-SOMETHING YEAR OLD'S SONG. THIS PERSON HAS WON GRAMMIES. WHAT??? it makes me so uncomfortable that little girls are looking up to this anti-feminist who makes girls look like whiny brats who let men control their whole lives
    the kennedys (for the most part) are more classy than this little twit

  25. ali says – reply to this


    Re: fancypants66 – how the hell is that rude? its her daughters day. taylor completely stole the spotlight. the wedding day belongs to the bride and groom and they deserve to have who they WANT to be there.

  26. 26

    The Kennedy kid is 18 years old. probably not ready to think twice and just lives the bright of the moment… Taylor is older and she must be sure - by this time - that wherever she goes she attracts all views to her. It must be horrible for a bride not to be the central attraction during her most important day. so, it is actually rude to crash the party. specially if she was not invited. and yeah, the Kennedys must have them rule. it was THEIR party so why not play according to their rules? even if the other party is more famous, more rich, this is not the argument here.

  27. 27

    Rule of thumb only half of the invited wedding guests show up…since this was a "kennedy" event perhaps more. When people play the "rules" this tight who really wants to be around them? I mean if I went somewhere and Kathy Lee Gifford was there and I was told "You are not on the List," that would be one place I damn sure would have no problem leaving.
    I used to be a fan of the Kennedys when we were all younger wanting a Utopian society. As I have witnessed Life for some time now I have seen none of them is without blemish-even though the next gen seem to think they are superior to everyone else.
    Through their actions they have collectively proven they believe themselves to be above the Law.

  28. 28

    Re: ali – I couldnt agree more

  29. 29

    beginning of the end for classless TS…she's a vindictive mouth waiting to get shut up…

  30. Jet says – reply to this


    I continue to be amazed at how Taylor's Foamer Fans worship her regardless of any of her questionable choices. Swift, right now has a Multi-Super-Pass card. Perez always accepts it without question. I guess he along with others remember what happen to Kayne. But one of these days Karma is going to revoke her card.

    best wedding video ever!

  32. mattv says – reply to this


    Was anyone there? Who was drunker, BridesMomzilla or Kathie Lee Gifford? Would Kathie Lee take a Lie Detector test that BridesMomzilla was sober enough to actually form a sentence and ask Conor, her nephew who has had a tough summer, to leave? Liam has to be thrilled his Mother in Law reports to the Boston Globe. Total white trash move on BridesMomzilla and Grandma Kathie Lee Gifford.

    Before jumping down taylors throat remind yourself that this woman made a public statement about it.If someone in my family is dating someone who irritated me I wouldnt make a huge speech about it because then my family member would resent me for it. Not to mention Conner was invited and most weddings you bring a date. It kind of goes without saying. Ever seen a movie people? "you want to be my plus one at a weddings saturday" . People do that all the time so they dont have to go alone. I dont see why she was asked to leave. Getting married is about being in love not being the center of attention. A bit embarassing to ask someone to leave because you arent the center of attention. Thats why alot of people hate going to weddings because they do everything to make sure no one else has a good time.

  34. Teri L says – reply to this


    It's up to the bride and groom to say who is invited to THEIR wedding. I would be mortified if my mother had taken it upon herself to ask a guest to leave w/o clearing it with me. The mother is the one creating the scene.

  35. 35

    Re: ali – I completely agree!!!

  36. 36

    If I was the bride I would want her gone to!!! Obviously Taylor was going to have all eyes on her, and it should be the bride's special day! The fact that Taylor's fans are defending her shocks me..she was completely in the wrong here!

  37. heather says – reply to this


    We arent defending her we are just saying that its ALSO rude to kick a family members gf out of the wedding too and then go to the tabloid about it.

  38. heather says – reply to this


    Also why are brides so hell bent on being the center of attention? My biggest pet peeve is going to a wedding where the woman is hell bent on being the center of attention. Its annoying. Your married be happy.

  39. nat says – reply to this


    Re: goosie – yes but it wasn't the bride that asked her to leave was it? the brides mother saw taylor swift and then immediately walked up to her and then asked her to leave. So it wasn't the bride that asked her to leave, for all we know, the bride could have been jumping up and down because TAYLOR SWIFT decided to go to HER wedding

    ha,ha,ha,ha……..if my 4 years younger boyfriend asks me to accompany him an hour prior to the wedding, I'll turn him flat. Even if I'm that stupid and accept his "invitation" to accompany him, I won't wear a white dress. Swift is 22 years old and categorized as an adult not to mention that she already has tons of experiences with same age boys, older/way older men and now with younger age boy, she should know that wearing a white dress when attending a wedding is a taboo. Unless she is soooo clueless. You can she that all she knows is: I wear sneakers; Romeo-Juliet; You dumped me on the phone… that kind of level of knowledge. Who knows maybe the wedding crash stuation will give her an idea of a new song. My boyfriend relatives don't like me, they told me to leave the party, my heart is broken, I came to the wedding to wish them tons of happiness, but instead I was insulted…….bla,bla,bla,bla…..baby,baby, baby, yeah, yeah, yeah. And…….all those 10, 12 years old kids will buy her CD. Xo,Xo,Xo.

    I completely agree!!! You should get part of the royalties from her next song.
    It sounds so Taylor Swift.
