Kathie Lee Gifford to Martin Short: How is Your Late Wife?

by at . Comments

This clip is just painful to watch.

In an interview with Martin Short on The Today Show this morning, Kathie Lee Gifford asked the actor about his kids and their occupations - and then thought she was being complimentary by adding:

"And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?"

The extremely awkward problem, however, is that Short's wife passed away from ovarian cancer in 2010. Watch the exchange now to see how well Short handled the questions related to him and Nancy.

Gifford Tweeted not long after the interview aired:

"I send my sincerest apologies to Martin Short and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful."
