NBC's hot and hilarious Today hostesses are spending the weekend at Gifford's waterfront home in the Florida Keys doing what they do best: having fun. She's wearing a beige furry bathrobe, black ruffled pajama bottoms — and no makeup. She offers hugs all around and, ever the nurturer, moves into the kitchen, where she nukes a breakfast sandwich for one of her guests and pours coffee for another. Kotb pronounced COT-bee strolls into the dining room with 3-inch rollers in her hair and a huge smile on her face. I was looking for some earrings earlier and she said, 'Take mine! On air, the two women have taken TMI too much information to new heights: Today viewers know, for instance, that Kotb, 48, likes her men on the chunky side, and that Gifford, 59, prefers not to partake of certain feminine waxing trends.
The co-anchor of Today 's fourth hour was there to introduce her co-host and friend Hoda Kotb , who was diagnosed with breast cancer just over 10 years ago.

Hoda and Kathie Lee have certainly felt each other's highs and lows through the years. Hoda cried on-air over the death of Frank, who died of natural causes in the Connecticut home he shared with Kathie Lee in August The former NFL player and sportscaster was 84 years old. Hoda said she had been supporting Kathie Lee through the tough time, and wiped away tears while giving viewers an update on her close co-host. Hoda played a song off-camera to commemorate the occasion. Hoda cried in April as she made her return to the Today show after adopting her daughter, Haley Joy, and reunited with Kathie Lee.
