Martin Short proves for the second time in two days that he’s one classy dude with a very gracious response to the Kathie Lee Gifford “Today” show gaffe. During his May 30 appearance on the fourth hour of the NBC morning show to promote “Madagascar 3,” Gifford asked Short about his marriage with wife Nancy, who died in 2010.
Short very graciously answered Gifford’s questions on-air without blowing up, and proved again the following day that he’s a standup guy by telling E! News, “I think that it’s live television and people make mistakes and there’s no ill will intended. And I think it’s nice to aspire to be that way.”
Gifford apologized on-air immediately after she discovered her error, and later tweeted, “I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I’m so grateful.”
