Kathie Lee Gifford doesn't judge Weinstein or Cosby

Kathie Lee Gifford doesn't judge Weinstein or Cosby”

Kathie has said she has been in contact with both men amidst the allegations, saying to turn away would be to be a "fairweather friend".

"If that's part of God's will for me, I'm certainly open to it", she allows, although she's not actively looking for love either.

The daytime television personality, who co-hosts the 10 AM hour of Today, said she suffered multiple experiences of sexual abuse throughout her life, while simultaneously defending the two embattled men at the epicenter of the Me Too movement.

Kathie Lee Gifford expressed support for Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein - two alleged sexual assaulters she described as friends, despite dozens of credible accusations against each of them - in a Tuesday interview on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM pop culture show, Radio Andy. I wouldn't be interested in a man like that anyway.

Kathie Lee, who recently wrote a book titled, The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi, said that if she does get into a committed relationship again, it will have to be with someone who shares her views on faith and love.

Listen to a clip of Gifford's interview on Radio Andy above. "I said, 'My faith isn't something I do on Sunday mornings for an hour". I'm not out at singles bars.

"My biggest struggle at this point of my life is loneliness". It just isn't. I've been friends with Bill for a long, long time...

The Emmy Award victor and The Rock, The Road, and The Rabbi author said that in those dark moments, she reminds herself of the blessing of life that she still has.

"I don't want to throw everybody on the same manure pile".

"Oh, I'm not deterred", Kathie Lee joked. "Unless you've been through it and you can say they are the same, then fine". You have to partner with the right person, only Jesus, only Jesus.

Last year, Gifford debuted the song, "He Saw Jesus" on her show in honor of her late husband.

"I don't like what they do, but God knows their hearts and there's hope for them", she explains, adding that she's not a true friend if she bolts at the sign of trouble.

"So many people loved Frank. I wanted to honor his memory with it, but I also wanted it to do some good in the world", she explained.
