This morning on Today, Kathie Lee Gifford told the kind of cute little story that’s perfect for a Friday. One day, Gifford said, in the before time when smartphones didn’t exist, she was waiting to meet her least punctual friend for lunch at “one of the best restaurants in New York.” After sitting alone for some time, another woman—also alone and waiting—made eye contact with her and asked if Gifford would like to join her for lunch.

That friendly woman was Liza Minnelli, and Kathie Lee accepted her offer. (She thinks.)

Jezebel Editor Kate Dries described the moment as “peak Kathie Lee and Hoda, just two friends chattin’ about the good old days,” and I agree.
