Viewers fell in love with Kathie Lee as the “La La Girl” on Name That Tune…and as one of the bodacious Hee Haw Honeys. But it was being selected as a last minute replacement on a morning television show that changed her life. The show became one of the most successful syndicated television programs of all time, “LIVE with Regis and Kathie Lee.”
The show’s viewers accepted Kathie Lee as “part of the family,” sharing her profound joy in marrying sports hero Frank Gifford. But what the public was not aware of was her secret torment of being stalked by an obsessive fan with a history of violent sexual crimes.
Her surprising career and inspiring life are illustrated through family memories captured in rare home movies…classic, early television performances…and behind-the-scenes surprises on the set.
