Publisher's Summary

From Kathie Lee Gifford, beloved television host and best-selling author of I Can't Believe I Said That, comes a funny, candid, and personal collection of essays.

This smart and witty collection of opinions, observations, and anecdotes covers a broad range of personal topics. Kathie Lee Gifford's stories are often funny, sometimes heartfelt, and always compelling - think Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck meets Carol Burnett.

No subject is off-limits: talking to her kids about sex, being married to Frank Gifford, embarrassing professional gaffes, run-ins with celebrities (of which there are many), the harsh and funny realities of aging. It's all here, told with intelligence, grace, and comedic wit.

Written by Gifford's own hand, this highly original and listenable volume will make you laugh out loud as you reach for the phone to share one of these charming, quirky, and colorful observations.

Critic Reviews

"From her head down to her gnarly (no longer!) toes, Kathie Lee is pure dame. And she's served up a cocktail of wit and wisdom with a decidedly salty rim!" (Meredith Vieira)  

"I've been through a couple of calamities with Kathie Lee and nobody handles them better. You could blow her up, cook her and hang her out to dry and she will still survive and have some laughs doing it." (Regis Philbin) 

“Kathie Lee has always entertained me with her humor, wry wit, and penchant for pinpointing all of our very human foibles with great accuracy and hilarity. Now she does it again. This charming memoir filled with amusing anecdotes about herself and her family, friends, and colleagues brought a smile to my face but also touched me. Her insight is as remarkable as she is.” (Barbara Taylor Bradford)

Crazy Funny!

Loved it! Was actually what I needed to hear. Kathie Lee is fun, and also able to get her point across. I followed Kathie Lee since I was in high school in "87".

such a pleasure!

I have read one book and listened to two now and I just gotta say, I love you Kathie Lee! you are so very real and down to earth! I know if I ever met you we'd become fast friends. I agree with everything you write about. the funny stuff, family stuff, getting older stuff and yes the faith stuff too! you are truly a treasure from above. I loved watching you on Name That Tune and Regis & Kathie Lee Gifford and the fourth hour on Today. you are very special to my heart girlfriend and know I'll be keeping you in my prayers. love you,
Kimi Shore

Great way to start my day!

I listened to this book every morning getting ready for work. It’s amazing how what I was experiencing that day was what she was speaking about. Can’t wait to read the next one!
