I don’t mind seeing happy couples because i’m not a heartless person. But when they choose to proclaim their love for each other in public (because let’s face it, it’s awkward 95% of the time), then it starts to become a bit too much.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that these two are madly in love. But we all know that choosing to proclaim your affections in public might just end up badly in the long run.
I wish these two all the best. But from one person to another, PLEASE DON’T DO THIS WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER AND SPARE US.
This is one of those interviewer oopsies that makes you cringe. Martin Short stopped by the Today Show to promote his new movie Madagascar 3. Kathie Lee Gifford questioned the comedian about his wife and their marriage, not realizing that she died years ago.
Gifford issued an apology via Twitter later that day. “I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family,” she wrote. “He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I’m so grateful.”
On the show Gifford asked: “And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”
Short brushed it off and answered nonetheless: “We … have … married … 36 years.”
“But you are still like, in love?”
“Madly in love, madly in love,” said Short.
The conversation continued like this for a while and Short just moved right along.
Gifford found out after the show that Short’s wife died from ovarian cancer in 2010. This is an awful mistake to make but it shows what a calm and composed person Short is.
