After Months Of Silence, Kathie Lee Finally Admits What We’ve All Been Suspecting
Kathie Lee Gifford has never been shy about sharing details of her personal life, career, and devotion to God.
But, after the passing of her husband Frank Gifford and mother Joan Epstein, Kathie Lee fell silent and withdrew into herself.
The days felt longer and Kathie Lee turned to her faith as a place of solace. Now she’s ready to speak out and discuss some of the biggest challenges she’s faced in recent years.
That willingness to open up is exactly why she sat down with the “I Am Second” crew and shared her most private thoughts on losing loved ones, loneliness, and faith…
Throughout her life, Kathie Lee’s faced more adversity and cruel behavior within the entertainment industry than most Hollywood figures could imagine. Casting agents turned her down, called her names and told her she would never make it in the harsh world of entertainment. Thankfully, they were wrong and Kathie Lee’s career blossomed just as she met her husband of 29 years, Frank.
Despite their own personal challenges, Kathie Lee and Frank remained devoted to each other and were determined to make their marriage work.
So when Kathie Lee stumbled upon her husband’s body in August 2015, she was totally crushed. However, the thought of Frank meeting God and relaxing in the Kingdom of Heaven helped ease her pain.
She told the “I Am Second” crew:
“On a beautiful Sunday morning, I found my husband passed on to Heaven… He saw Jesus and Jesus took his breath away.”
After her husband’s passing, Kathie Lee turned to her mother and children for support. But, just two years after Frank’s passing, her mother joined him in Heaven.
With her two children too far to see regularly, the thought of being alone was often too much to bear. She said:
“My biggest struggle at this point of my life is loneliness. I’ve lost my parents, my husband is gone now and my children live far away from me. I still live in the same big house where we made a gazillion million memories. And there are times when I am overwhelmed by loneliness.”
Thankfully, Kathie Lee knows that God will always be by her side. With His love, she can overcome anything – and believing that her loved ones are in a better place gives her a sense of comfort.
It takes a brave person to open up about such a raw topic, and we thank Kathie Lee for digging deep and finding the strength to do so!
