Kathie Lee apologized to anyone who might have been eating their Cheerios when she told a seriously gross story this morning. Don't read this recounting of it unless you've already eaten yours. (And every other meal you plan to eat today.)
The ladies were discussing a woman who was kicked off of a Southwest Airlines flight for refusing to halt her manicure and stop grossing out the other passengers with her clipping and filing. Not one to be easily topped, Kathie Lee volunteered a story from her own manicurist, who once got a mouthful of toe jam while giving a pedicure.
"Why would you tell that story?" wondered Hoda. Well, sometimes it's good to talk through trauma.
