Kathy Lee and Hoda explain the alcohol

Kathie Lee and Hoda Explain How the Alcohol Started Flowing on 'Today' (VIDEO)

At last, the secret stands revealed! And we didn't even have to buy a special Blu-Ray set of the best of the 'Today' (Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) show's fourth hour, complete with a set of wine glasses to start off your morning right. Instead, Kathie Lee Gifford just abruptly announced that for year-end, they should reveal the genesis of the booze on the set of the fourth hour.

"People do ask us that more than anything," co-host Hoda Kotb admitted. Could they have been, perhaps, following our own TVR Awards?

"And it's been blown out of proportion," Gifford added, no doubt referencing at least in part the various skits of them performed on 'Saturday Night Live.' Ironically, if you watched Gifford throughout this explanation, it didn't look like Kristen Wiig was exaggerating those facial expressions as much as we might have thought in her 'SNL' parody.

"We didn't have a drop of alcohol at all on our show," Kotb said, "Until someone named Chelsea Handler came to visit." Handler was on to promote her book 'Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea,' and so they decided to have a drink on set for her.

"Our producers concocted a couple of concoctions for her to concoct," Gifford said with a laugh.

Basically, they had so much fun that day with alcohol on the set that it's since become a signature staple of the show. Clearly the audience response has been positive as well, or they wouldn't still be doing it. If, however, you aren't a fan, you now know who to direct your dissatisfaction toward.

"It's all Chelsea Handler's fault," Gifford concluded.


I think Kristen needs to do another Kathy Lee skit and make fun of this. =^)

Also, Nasim or Abby can be Kotb. Who do you think could pull off the third Kotb Hoda?
