    Somebody on her staff ought to get fired over that, assuming she didn't go off the note cards for that one.

    "She's dead Kathie Lee... as compared to your spouse who only wishes he was dead."

    Well, you don't really think of writing on the note cards "WIFE HAS BEEN DEAD TWO YEARS DON'T ASK ABOUT WIFE".

    Though maybe if you're on her staff you should learn to prepare for anything.

    No, actually I don't think it would be unreasonable at all to write that down for any on-air interviewer. Much better than saying, in midst of all the chaos that likely goes on pre-show, "don't ask about his wife." Really, really easy to miss that "don't" when you're only half-listening.
