Former cruise pitch woman, (she was hot right?) and talk show robot - and I'm sure she did some other stuff too I'm just not exactly sure what - decided to ask Martin Short how his lovely wife was doing, to which Martin replied "skeletonizing". No I'm pretty sure he didn't, but he could have because Kathy didn't bother to find out that she's been dead for two years.
You and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?'
Confused, Short replied: 'We... have... married ... 36 years.'
'But you are still like, in love,'Gifford went on, prompting Martin to proffer: 'Madly in love, madly in love.'
'Why?' a smiling Gifford said, continuing the exchange.
'Cute, I'm cute,' Martin replied, before Kotb jovially interjected: 'That is true.'
If you read just that exchange, and nothing else, like I did, I think you could safely assume that Martin Short keeps his dead wife in her wedding dress in a closet in their house. Maybe Kathy Lee Gifford really tripped him up and forced him to answer some uncomfortable questions, and her subsequent apology for asking that question was merely because she felt bad for blowing Shorts' cover. Hey what do you expect from Hollywood. It's the Land of the Weirdo.
