The WWHL host said: ‘We’re about to serve you an ambush takeover, this one is hair raising. Kathie Lee’s revenge!’ as Hoda’s jaw drops.

‘Tonight I am handing over interrogation duties to Hoda’s former Today Show host, whose taste for vengeance is big enough to fill her mid-morning goblet of wine,’ Andy said.

Kathie, 67, said: ‘Hi Hoda mama, I’m back. I’m going to cause some trouble,’ she said to a nervous looking Hoda.

She asked her: ‘Hoda who do you think was my least favorite guest of all time? And I bet it was yours too.’

Hoda answered: ‘It was.. I know exactly who that is. Frank Sinatra Jr,’ to which Andy said that was what Kathie said was hers.

Hoda said: ‘He was the worst guest we’ve ever had, bar none. He came for a book, he had a book he was promoting, and he didn’t want to talk about it, so he didn’t say anything.’

The next question Kathie asked was: ‘Hoda say the truth, what’s the most annoyed you’ve ever been of me before we went on air, what comes to mind?’

Hoda answered: ‘I’m going to plead the fifth.’

Having fun! Kathie said: 'Hi Hoda mama, I'm back. I'm going to cause some trouble,' she said to a nervous looking Hoda

The last question Kathie asked: ‘Hoda mama Kotb, can you name three Kathie Lee songs from my huge catalog of hits?’

Hoda said: ‘Whisky in wine, Everyone has a story, and there’s one with the music video… look it up…. I don’t remember… I’m just going to go with the Christmas song, Silent Night.’ 

Andy told her she was correct. 

Lenny Kravitz was the second guest on Tuesday night’s WWHL.

In the October 2015 interview, Frank Sinatra Jr. was on the Today Show with Hoda and Kathie to promote his book Sinatra 100.

Frank Jr., who passed away in 2016, was on the show with the book’s co-author Charles Pignone.

The first question posed by Hoda to Frank Jr. during the awkward interview was: ‘So Frank what make you decide that this was the right time to… obviously it’s his 100th anniversary….’

He cuts her off and says: ‘I didn’t decide,’ to which Hoda says ‘oh you didn’t?’

Frank Jr. added: ‘No that was done by a committee,’ Kathie added ‘Oh a committee Ok.’

Hoda asked her next question, ‘Why was it important to do something like this?’

Frank said: ‘Um I think you better ask Charles that question,’ to which Hoda said ‘oh, Ok.’

Charles said: ‘We’ve been planning for Frank’s centennial to celebrate his 100th birthday for about five years and we decided this time would be great, the book is a celebration of his life and career.’

Charles added: ‘There are a lot of books coming out but this one is sanctioned by the family and it’s also in his words. We found a treasure trove of tapes that Frank had made, talking about his life so there are a lot of people who write books that never knew him or never met him so we tried to match the pictures with the text in the book.’

Yikes: The first question posed by Hoda to Frank Jr. during the awkward interview was: 'So Frank what make you decide that this was the right time to... obviously it's his 100th anniversary....'

 Yikes: The first question posed by Hoda to Frank Jr. during the awkward interview was: ‘So Frank what make you decide that this was the right time to… obviously it’s his 100th anniversary….’

Kathie said: ‘He’s more popular than ever you know it seems to me.’

Charles added: ‘There’s no … we always like to say about Frank, there’s no generation gaps. Every generation seems to find him and he’s just relevant today as he ever was.’

They looked at pictures from the book, and for one picture  Hoda said ‘Tell us about the picture’ to which Frank Jr. said: ‘I don’t know anything about that one because I was not present.’

Wow: Hoda asked her next question, 'Why was it important to do something like this?'

Kathie and Hoda both said ‘oh, Ok’ but Charles added: ‘I think that’s 1962 or 1963.’

Kathie added: ‘You said the holidays were always… the best memories were at home during the holiday times. That’s what somebody told us.’

After he didn’t say anything, Kathie jokingly said: ‘Probably the committee.’

Frank Jr said: ‘When I was a young person, they used to refer to it as Christmas time. Course now it has to be politically correct and call it the holidays.’

Kathie said: ‘I’ll say Christmas time,’ to which Frank Jr. said ‘Very good, so do I.’

My goodness: They looked at pictures from the book, and for one picture Hoda said 'Tell us about the picture' to which Frank Jr. said: 'I don't know anything about that one because I was not present'

drew barrymores ex husband will kopelman says his uncle david is alive

She was married to  Will Kopelman from 2012 until 2016, and they amicably co-parent their two daughters.

 And Drew Barrymore’s ex spoke out about one of segments on her talk show – that involved his uncle and a psychic.

The actress, 45, brought a psychic to her show, who then ‘summoned’ a dead spirit from Will’s side of the family – bringing the star to tears at the intense moment.

However, Will told Page Six that the ‘dead’ uncle the psychic spoke to is actually still very much alive, which then led him to call the medium ‘a submental hack.’

The segment, which took place last week on The Drew Barrymore Show, was with Psychic Anna Raimondi.

The woman said she sensed an aura of a ‘judge’ when she appeared on the show, which led to Drew bursting into tears. 

The mother of two said the judge was David, who is a relative of her ex-husband Will, adding that he died.

After the admission, the psychic said that the presence of Will’s family was in fact evidence that ‘you are… a part of that family – it doesn’t matter [that] the two of you are not together anymore.’

However, David, 82, is still alive, a fact that was confirmed by Will.

Will, an art consultant and the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman, told Page Six: ‘Drew and I have a close and highly amicable co-parenting relationship; I have and always will continue to cheer her on the sidelines.’  

Adding: ‘That being said, the segment was a solid laugh considering my uncle Judge David Kopelman is still very much alive.’ 

The former husband of Drew did not hold back his opinion: ‘And I’m a little surprise that Dew chose to give oxygen to someone like this, because self-entitled mediums who prey on vulnerable bereaved people with claims they can communicate with their dead loved ones in exchange for fame and compensation all belong in jail.’

Will added: ‘None of my dead relatives – all of whom I’m sure would have really liked Drew – are speaking with some submental hack working the talk show circuit. I assure you.’

After his statement, a rep for Drew told the outlet: ‘The grandfather of Will is Frank, who was a judge and is deceased. David is.. Will’s uncle, who’s alive and also a judge. That was the confusion.’

Page Six also reached out to the psychic in the center of it, who told the outlet: ‘I felt a judge who is passed. Drew said David. I only felt a judge.’ 

Drew and Will began dating in early 2011 and tied the knot on June 2, 2012 in Montecito, California.

They have two daughters: Olive, eight and Frankie, six.

The duo split in April 2016, with Drew filing for divorce in July of that year; their divorce was finalized August 3, 2016.

Amelia confirmed she was working on the upcoming movie, writing on Instagram on Thursday: ‘Excited and proud to be part of such a beautiful film.’ 

During her career, the mother-of-three has also released three solo classical albums, with her most recent offering being EP Haven earlier this year.

She has also worked on other films and is best known for her part in composing Mary Shelley in 2018.

After this job, Amelia was named breakthrough composer of the year at the 2019 International Film Music Critics Awards.

Filmed on location in County Mayo, the movie promises gorgeous scenery and stellar performances.

The Irish love story is written and directed by John Patrick Shanley and is based on his stage play Outside Mullingar. 

The play debuted on Broadway in January 2014 starring Debra Messing and Brían F. O’Byrne and received a Tony Award nomination for best play.

While other cast members include Christopher Walken and Jon Hamm. It is set to be released in cinemas and digitally on demand on December 11th.  

The announcement comes more than 18 months after the couple’s Mother’s Day announcement that they had become parents for a third time, as Amelia took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of three pairs of baby shoes. 

To avoid any doubt that she had welcomed another child in secret, Amelia then added that she was proud to be a mother of ‘three glorious girls’.

Co-star: Emily Blunt also stars in Wild Mountain Thyme which is set for release on December 11

She penned: ‘So proud of these three glorious girls, it’s an honour being their mummy… Feeling incredibly lucky today #happymothersday (sic)’ 

As well as their youngest, Alberta, the couple are also parents to Dulcie, six, and Elva, four. 

The notoriously private couple confirmed their engagement after two years of romance in November 2012 and they married in an intimate Somerset ceremony in 2013.

Their daughter Dulcie was born at the end of that year, before the pair confirmed they were expecting again in October 2015.

It was not until March 2016 when Amelia was pictured walking with a stroller in Notting Hill that the arrival of second child Elva was confirmed.

Northern Irish actor Jamie subsequently said that he wanted to keep having children with his wife ‘until we can’t do it anymore’. 

The candid interview about his family and wanting to spend more time with his little ones came during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in late 2018.

‘Part of me feels like to put a cork in it after this,’ the Irish actor admitted. ‘But then, alternatively, I feel like we make really great kids.

‘Maybe we’ll just — if my wife’s willing — do it until we can’t do it anymore. It’s all up to her. I do the fun bit’.

Last month, India shared an impassioned post about body shaming, amid ongoing criticism about her weight. 

The model told fans they need to be less critical of people’s appearances in a lengthy statement on Instagram. 

She penned: ‘So over people commenting on my weight! I’m either ‘too fat’ or ‘lost too much weight’ you genuinely can’t win! 

‘Luckily I’m not trying to, and am thick skinned enough to ignore the negativity. However not everyone is. 

‘So I’d just like to remind you before you comment on people’s size, is that it’s not always their choice.’

The reality star emphasised that changes in weight is often not the fault of the individual and can be the result of something far more serious. 

She wrote: ‘People gain and lose weight through diet but also through illness & stress.

‘If you haven’t got anything nice to say… don’t say it at all.’ 

Tens of thousands of fans liked the post, which India simply captioned with the words: ‘Please be kind’. 

India originally shot to fame in last year’s Love Island after winning the heart of lovable basketball player Ovie Soko.
