Video: Kathie Lee Gifford Asks Martin Short About Marriage to his Dead Wife

| by Michael Allen

On the 'Today' show, Wednesday, actor/comedian Martin Short did an interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to promote 'Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted' (video below).

At one point, Gifford asked Short: “And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”

However, Short’s wife Nancy Dolman died of ovarian cancer back in August 2010.

Short spared Gifford some well-deserved embarrassment, even after she followed up her marriage question with another comment about how “in love” Short and Dolman still are.

Following a commercial break, Gifford finally acknowledged her mistake and apologized (watch the second video for that).
