Personal Quote:

Mrs. Gifford on what she does first thing in the morning: "Brush my teeth and say good morning to the picture of my Daddy sitting next to my sink." See more »


Mrs. Gifford's father, Aaron Leon Epstein, died on November 19, 2002. He had been terminally ill for the past few years, and his illness was one of the reasons Mrs. Gifford decided to leave Live! with Kelly (1988) in 2000, after more than a decade as host. See more »
