Go Behind the Scenes of 'Today' -- Exclusive Tour!
By Rob Shuter Posted Oct 19th 2010 12:31PM
Hoda starts her morning at work by reading through her notes and the morning papers. Then comes the "crucial part of the day," as she puts it: Picking out an outfit that won't clash with Kathie Lee's. If they do have a mishap, who changes first? "Kathie Lee," Hoda jokes. "Because she has more money. And more clothes."
PopEater also got to go where no cameras have gone before: the duo's makeup room, where KLG zings that the intrepid makeup artists are "exhausted by the time they get me in the chair. They've done everybody but Willard Scott by the time I get here."
As you've seen, Kathie Lee gets unbridled joy out of picking on Hoda about men and her social life, but what do the pair really think of each other? Executive producer Jim Bell calls them "the girlfriends" of morning television. "They love each other; they support each other. I think there's a real bond there that you don't see anywhere else."
We agree, and nowhere else do you get that sense of sisterly love between the two than in Hoda's fab new memoir, 'Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer and Kathie Lee.' Nice title, right? "I sprung it on her during a wine-soaked lunch," Hoda tells me. "She loved it -- after the third glass of Chardonnay."
Stay tuned for more footage and interviews from our exclusive tour of 'Today'!
