Martin Short could easily have been pissed off on Wednesday when Kathie Lee Gifford accidentally asked about the "successful marriage" he has with his deceased wife, but instead he acted as if it was no big deal.
Our mouths literally DROPPED when we witnessed Kathie pop the insensitive question during the interview on Today. Luckily for her, Martin kept it calm, cool, and classy and he continues to do so!
Yesterday, Kathie Lee Gifford made everyone in America severely uncomfortable by asking intensely questioning Martin Short about his "successful marriage," without realizing his wife had passed away two years ago.
If you can stomach the awkwardness levels, watch the interview HERE!
SO, to make things better (but not really) Katie Lee used her amazing technology skills to tweet this apology:
Kathie Lee Gifford's incredibly uncomfortable interview (above) is gonna find you!
Comedian Martin Short checked in with Today to promote Madagascar 3 but had no idea what kind of unprofessionalism was in store!
Kathie asked Martin several questions about his wife, their marriage, and then pretty much invites the two of them over for Sunday brunch before Martin graciously puts a cap on the cray and tells her something she WOULD have known if she’d done her homework…
Martin’s wife Nancy died of ovarian cancer almost two years ago!!
And the cute little girl with bangs from Miracle on 34th Street who really wanted us to believe in Santa?
Of course you do.
That’s Mara Wilson, child star.
Well she’s not a kid anymore.
Our little girl is all grown up and she’s tired of being mocked two-bit critics.
When That Guy With The Glasses takes it upon himself to lambast one of Mara’s old flicks — a late ‘90s crap-fest called A Simple Wish, co-starring Kathleen Turner and Martin Short — she decides to fight back.
Unfortunately for Mr. Depp, sources say the couple had no prenup. It's kind of a shock considering J.D.'s considerable assets and wealth.
And sadly, when it rains it pours.
All of this happened only DAYS after the A-lister's mom passed away. Betty Sue Palmer died on Friday at 81 years old. ET is reporting that she passed in LA after suffering from a long illness.
While we're kinda disturbed to learn the blonde beauty split from her man so close to his momma's death, we can't say we're too surprised by the split. Rumors of issues between the two have circulated for MONTHS now.
We'll keep you updated as we receive more info on the breakup.
