3/11/2008 4:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kathie Lee GiffordThe rumors are true -- sources tell TMZ that Kathie Lee Gifford is definitely going to be the new co-host of the 10:00 AM hour at "Today."

Gifford previously hosted "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" for 15 years, but left in the year 2000. "Today" is on a ratings surge lately -- February sweeps was its second-best since 2004.

A rep for "Today" tells us, "We think Kathie Lee is a tremendous talent, but we have nothing to announce."

If you could see her now!

Hey Shadow. I thought I was the only one that can't stand Rachael Ray. She is so loud and annoying. I wonder if Ophra has noticed, since she is the one backing her show.l

If she'd been smart, she would have divorced that loser husband of hers and kept her job with Regis.

Who would watch if that stuck up conceited Witch came back on? Kathy Epstein Johnson Gifford is a whining, skinny no talent farce!!!! I would rather watch the National Geographic Channel showing wild boars mate. She bragged about herself, her spoiled children, her 100 year old cheating husband and her wealth. Sickening!!! Hasnt the world gone on to more important issues???? Why would anyone want to even glance or listen to Kathy Epstein Johnson Gifford??? Give your viewers some respect!!!!!!!!

He's Boring now    

Anyone with a last name of Gifford is a philanderer, an abuser, and an anal intercourse lover sans rubber. You ask me this latest move on her part is her revenge, as if she is BFng all the viewers now for the disgrace she lived through with her "partner". The one she went on record for and stood by, but unlike Mrs. Spitzer, she spoke loud and defiantly to the Press and all who said her husband was cheating on her while she taped her show---and to wit she accused all of being liars.

Shame on her and him. Let the past be drug out now, now that she has resurfaced. Let Frank make appearances so we can see what this man looks like now, as well as hear if he is still all there. We havent seen nor heard from this man in years----makes you wonder doent it?

She asked for all of these inquiries by resurfacing so boldly

Kathy Epstein Johnson Gifford

Why she have 3 last names? Is she Jewish, Dutch Reformed ,and Catholic? No wonder she's so confused. She doesnt know who or what she is. Tell you what she is not, and that is talented or truthful

When Katie Couric's salary on the Today show was announced, I stopped watching. Didn't start up again with Meredith and Matt (b-o-r-i-n-g) and would NEVER watch again with Kathy Lee, who is without a doubt the most annoying person in the world. Thanks but no thanks.

Area 51    

Outside of annoying Regis for 15 years, I can see little that she has accomplished. What exactly is this 'tremendous talent'? She can't sing, dance, or act...what else is there?

Frank Gifford disgraced his wife Kathie Lee in 1997 when he was photographed with airline
stewardess and mistress Suzen Johnson, who wound up posing for Playboy’s November ’97 cover.

Ages: Frank - 78, Kathie Lee - 54, Suzen - 57
