I could be Kathie Lee.

Thankfully, I have read a million posts about how hard it is to blog in the summer. It is so tough! So thank you for the posts. It re-assures me that I am not a crazy lazy person.

On to today’s post, that happens to be about the Today Show.

I love Kathie Lee and Hoda and I am unashamed. I think they are hilarious! I started watching them in college after my early classes. Because really, what are you going to do at that weird time of the morning? Duh, watch 4th hour of Today and then watch Regis and Kelly. I loved that these shows would throw a teensy bit of real news in with their amazingly hilarious host chat. Otherwise, they would mainly discuss news that I find pertinent, celeb gossip and scandals, before moving on to awesome segments about new shows, movies and books. Or seasonal segments about beauty, fashion or food.

Basically, I feel like I could do this job. And I think I could do it well. I am aware that I would be in the Kathie Lee role, the overly honest, semi-inappropriate for network TV, lots of laughter and crazy facial expressions, host role. Don’t worry guys, I already have a Hoda. Marina is subtly ethnic, has knowledge of the real issues, loves music and secretly loves the nonsense!


Plus, we both love wine. Ahhh wine.

If you don’t watch them now, as I assume you don’t because of work, you wouldn't know that they are doing a “find our college counterparts” search. I am devastated that this search is happening at a time that I am no longer eligible. RUDE! This contest would be in the bag! I still watch their host chat and selected segments online when I can. Yes, that is how much I love them.

Dear KLG and Hoda,

Let me be part of this contest? Or at least agree to grab a drink with me!? I will fly all the way to NYC for it!

This is when they lost it doing a story about gas.

See ya later!! 


  1. hahhaa this is glorious. i am more of a kelly ripa fan myself.... but when i was in high school i would watch regis and KLG every morning with my mom. Was anyone else a Gelman hater like I was ?

  2. Day late and a dollar short! You would be a great fit, your humor would blend right in.

  3. Gosh, I love these women. I work at a TV station, so I have a TV in my office and I watch their show every morning. They are so hilarious. I'm always trying to decide if I'm a Kathie or a Hoda, and I think I'm a blend of the two. But I really love it when Kathie thinks Hoda's music choices are weird- it's so funny when they disagree. And I love Hoda's dancing and singing along with her music choices.

  4. My mom loves these two! She's always telling me that I need to watch them.

  5. Haha, this is great and you could be!
