The World According to Kathie Lee
Never Again: Get married. [Laughs.] How could I marry again after Frank Gifford? Not possible. It's a little bit bull, but he'll love it.
Don't Miss Them a Bit: My bunions. I had them operated on, and I have gorgeous feet now. The first 10 days I wanted to murder my Zimbabwean surgeon, but after that, he was on Mount Olympus.
Youth vs. People of a Certain Age: The young ones are certainly not as interesting. They're just not!
Guilty Pleasure (Besides Pinot Grigio): Anonymous sex with sailors! That's what I want! No, what I like is guacamole and chips with red salsa!
Age-Defying Secret: Not Botox — though save some for me! It's kindness. You feel like a kid again when you do something kind.
Beauty at 50+: People who've left their egos at the door.
Life-Changing Book: The Bible. I read it every day for an hour. It changes my life on a daily basis.
Worst Purchase: I once got my mother a pink stuffed poodle for her birthday because I wanted it. That's not right. It wasn't about what would make her happy. I've never forgotten that.
Best Teacher: My father was the wisest human being I've ever known. He would say, "I love you too much to deny you the privilege of making mistakes."
Great Advice: Life is hard. Don't sit around and have a pity party. Make something beautiful out of it.
