The feud between Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb and Chelsea Handler mercifully came to an end Thursday morning, when the two wine-loving "Today" hosts reviewed tape of Handler's mea culpa on Wednesday night's "Chelsea Lately" and accepted her apology.
Handler skipped out on a "Today" interview Monday, giving the hosts only an hour-and-a-half notice while claiming that she had a puffy eye after a run-in with a shower curtain and was suffering from food poisoning.
But after getting caught red-handed later that night on "Late Night WIth Jimmy Fallon," Handler issued an apology to Kathie Lee and Hoda on her talk E! talk show "Chelsea Lately." "I have to apologize to the 'Today' show 'cause I didn't show up for an interview, and they saw me on Jimmy Fallon and were like, 'What?' and I lied. I've been lying to everyone lately about why I didn't show up, but I just, I don't have a good reason. So to Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, I'm sorry," Chelsea said.
Kathie Lee and Hoda, surely no strangers to hangover-induced excuses, were ready to put the incident in the past. "I kind of like that apology," Hoda admitted. "Half-hearted, but at least she's not lying!" Kathie Lee agreed.
