Poor thing. Both of them.

Gulp. Oh man, Kathie Lee Gifford has been involved in a lot of awkward moments on television, but perhaps none so sad as this one. When Martin Short appeared on the TODAY show this morning to promote Madagascar 3, Gifford began to praise his 36-year marriage to his wife, Nancy. The only problem is, Short’s wife died two years ago from ovarian cancer. Short didn’t even let on and handled himself with true grace. Take a look:

Gifford proved herself pretty graceful as well after Short’s segment ended, redeeming herself with this commentary:

    She just cannot stop putting her foot in her mouth. At least this wasn’t as bad as when she humiliated that poor autistic boy on her show and made him cry. That was probably one of the most horrifying things I’ve seen on tv.
