Kathie Lee Gifford attributes career longevity and the success of her Today hour to drag queens being able to distinguish between who's real and who's phony, according to Village Voice blogger Michael Musto.
Musto writes that he just returned from a Friars Club luncheon and onstage interview with Gifford and Hoda Kotb, during which Gifford shared that they count a lot of drag queens among the viewers of the Today show's fourth hour, which the two women host each morning.
"If drag queens love you," Gifford says, "you'll have the longest career in the world. They know phony and they know real!"
