Kathie Lee Gifford biography (bio):
Kathie Lee Gifford is an American singer, songwriter, and actress, famous for her stint on the television talk show Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, which she co-hosted with Regis Philbin for 15 years.
About a year after The Globe uncovered the affair, the same tabloid published photographs of Kathie Lee's youngest child, Cassidy, next to a photo of child murder victim JonBenét Ramsey. The Globe selected photos in which the children were posed similarly, under a headline that announced that Kathie Lee was doing the "same" thing to her own daughter as Patsy Ramsey did to JonBenét. While some believe Patsy murdered her daughter, others believe that JonBenét's mother had somehow invited the murder upon her child. The title of the Globe article therefore suggested that Kathie Lee's parenting was negligent.
In 2000, within two weeks of the Globe article, after 15 years as Philbin's sidekick, Gifford announced that she was leaving Live with Regis and Kathie Lee in order to protect her children, although she said nothing on the air about the latest attacks from tabloids on her family. Kelly Ripa replaced Kathie Lee as Philbin's Live co-host.
She has since made guest appearances in films and television series, and has several independently released albums on CD, including 2000s The Heart of a Woman, featuring music from the Big Band era as well as Contemporary Christian songs.
Since September 2005, Gifford is a special correspondent on The Insider, a syndicated entertainment magazine television show.
Kathie Lee also devotes time to Variety: The Children's Charity. She has also sponsored and supported two shelters in New York City for babies born with HIV or a congenital crack cocaine addiction. These shelters were named in honor of her children, Cody and Cassidy.
n the third episode of South Park Kathie Lee comes to the South Park as Mr. Garrison's childhood rival. In the episode, Mr. Garrison tries to kill Kathie Lee, but ultimately fails. (Gifford did not provide her own voice; she was impersonated by a voice actor)
In a Season 3 episode of Hey Arnold!, Kathie Lee is parodied as Jackie Lee.
Kathie Lee and her husband, Frank, share the same birthdate, 23 years apart.
Kathie Lee appeared as Miss Hannigan in "Annie" at Madison Square Garden in December 2006.
Kathie Lee's line of clothing has been discussed in the documentary film The Corporation as it was discovered that despite pledges to children's charities, the clothes were in fact manufactured in South American sweatshops by children as young as 13 years old (though Ms. Gifford was apparently oblivious of that fact until it became national news.)
