Kathie, Kathie, Kathie…

Kathie Lee Gifford Mistakenly Asks Martin Short About Dead Wife

According to TMZ reports:

It might be the most cringeworthy few seconds in TV history — Kathie Lee Gifford asked Martin Short how his wife is doing … one small problem … she died 2 years ago.

Martin appeared on “The Today Show” this morning to promote his new movie, “Madagascar 3” — when Kathie asked, “And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”

Martin doesn’t know how to respond, saying, “We … have … married … 36 years.”

Apparently Kathie didn’t get the memo — Martin’s wife Nancy Dolman died in August 2010 from ovarian cancer.

An embarrassed Gifford tweeted this apology about an hour ago:

If you think it doesn’t sound so bad, wait til you see the clip.

Hit the flipper to watch the most uncomfortable moment in television history.
