Short was was promoting his upcoming movie “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” when Gifford started grilling him about his marriage. She said: “He and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?”
Short was a class act and didn’t mortify the morning host live on air, and instead replied: “We … for 36 years.”
Then she asked: “But you’re still, like, in love?”
Short forced a small smile and responded, “Madly, madly in love.” (via SF Gate)
Only after the interview did Gifford realize what she did, and quickly went to Twitter to apologize.
