Gifford appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where she was asked about son-in-law Ben Wierda’s too-tight pants moment.
“Yes, I have seen it,” she replied with a laugh. She added that she’s happy the too-tight-pants wearer wasn’t her own son, Cody, as she’s now one degree removed from the situation. “It’s Cassidy’s husband, whom I adore,” said Gifford.
“But none of us realized it. We were playing the game, for goodness sakes,” continued Gifford. “And we get very, very excited about it, and –”
“He looked like he was excited about it, too!” joked Andy Cohen. “That’s what I’m saying!” said Gifford with a smile. “But she said to him, I guess, earlier before that whole thing started, she said, ‘You’re going to wear those on television? They’re awfully tight.’ And he goes, ‘Oh, they’re fine.'”
Kathie Lee continued, “They woke up the next day after it aired the other day to this firestorm of publicity.”
“It couldn’t happen to two better [people] — he’s an incredible, good guy,” she went on to say. “And he’s got one of the best — they’ve both have an outrageous sense of humor. We all do in our family. And all they’ve been doing is laughing about it ever since. So it’s all good.”
