Kathie Lee Gifford may be 67 years-old, but she feels like she’s decades younger than that simply because of how busy she is!
“If you decide your life is over then it is,” Gifford said, adding that she feels “strong,” “healthy” and “renewed inside.”
“I feel 30 years old, truly,” she said, according to E! Online. “When somebody goes, ‘You’ve had too much work done.’ I take it as a compliment. I said, ‘Haven’t had any work. I’ve been working!'”
Gifford also said that she has been “so busy” since she left her gig hosting the fourth hour of the “Today” show a year-and-a-half ago. In fact, she’s been on the go so much that her departure from the NBC morning show “seems like yesterday.”
“I don’t even know what the day of the week is anymore since I left the TODAY show,” she explained. “I don’t know what time it is, I don’t know anything. I don’t know my last name.”
However, Gifford made sure to add that her busy schedule is a “good thing” because she loves chasing her dreams.
“Life is fragile and life is temporal and it’s gonna end for all of us someday,” she concluded. “I don’t want to waste one more moment of my life.”
This comes after Gifford revealed that she believes her late cohost Regis Philbin was “depressed” because of COVID-19 before he died back in July at the age of 88.
“He had been depressed in the weeks and months earlier, because of the COVID,” she said, according to People magazine. “Regis couldn’t perform anywhere, nobody was out and about, he couldn’t be Regis for people, you know.”
After Philbin’s passing, Gifford took to Instagram to pay tribute to her “precious friend, adding that she had “no words to fully express” her love for Philbin, and she called his life “legendary.”
“I simply adored him and every day with him was a gift. We spent 15 years together bantering and bickering and laughing ourselves silly — a tradition and a friendship we shared up to this very day. I smile knowing somewhere in Heaven, at this very moment, he’s making someone laugh,” she wrote.
“It brings me great comfort knowing that he had a personal relationship with his Lord that brought him great peace,” Gifford continued. “I send all the love in my heart to Joy, to his children, to the rest of his family and to the innumerable people he touched over his legendary life. There has never been anyone like him. And there never will be.”
