Kathie Lee & Hoda On-Air Without Makeup, Feel "Liberated"

This morning on Today, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb hosted the ladyhour without wearing makeup. The stunt was prompted by Rosie O'Donnell, who thought KLG "looked different" recently — as in, had gotten work done.

KLG encouraged Rosie to look for scars. We're not saying she had anything done, but if she did, wouldn't her bangs hide the evidence?


In solidarity, Meredith Vieira, Ann Curry and Natalie Morales also showed what they look like without makeup. SHOCKER: They're all gorgeous. You've got to love how Hoda says "I feel liberated too!" and yet sort of covers her face with tightly gripped hands.

I usually wear powder foundation, under-eye concealer and mascara...pretty light makeup, right? So I walk into the office for a Friday meeting one day without any makeup at all, and my boss goes "WHOAH...you look...um...tired"

(He has no tact).

Funny how much difference some chemicals in a jar make. Funny how people expect us to look.
