Hoda has also authored three books: Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee (2010), Ten Years Later: Six People Who Faced Adversity and Transformed Their Lives (2013), and Where They Belong: The Best Decisions People Almost Never Made (2016).
In another previous interview, Hoda opened up about the first time she met Kathie Lee. "I was at a restaurant with a friend of mine who’s a producer, and we were sitting and we go, 'Is that Kathie Lee? Oh my God,'" she said.
Hoda later got to work with KLG for the first time as a co-host on Today. "She showed up, her cleavage was out, she had hair pieces, fake hair, she’s in her tight, whatever, and she was awesome, like she killed it," Hoda said of Kathie Lee.
