When nature called Kathie Lee in the Holy Land

Kathie Lee is freshly back from her trip to Israel, and she called it the best trip of her life, even though there was a little bit of … roughing it. In the bathroom department.

"No toi-tois?" gasped Hoda. "What did you do?"

"I pee-peed like a pilgrim," confirmed KLG.

There are facilities all over Israel, obviously, but Kathie Lee was traveling to remote locations, more desolate areas that lacked plumbing, makeup mirrors and shapewear outlets.

"If somebody would have said the greatest trip of your life would be no toilets, no drying your hair, hummus at lunch, no makeup and no Spanx, I would have said, that's hell," she said.

Despite all that, Hoda noted that she's still glowing. Just like a kid freshly back from one of those summer camps where there are no Spanx.
