Tom Selleck visited the Today Show to promote his CBS series [Blue Bloods](http://www.cbs.com/shows/bluebloods/)_ on Wednesday, March 29 and got a big kiss from interviewer Kathie Lee Gifford during their chat!
The steamy smooch was extra special because it marked the 20th anniversary of a kiss Tom, 72, and Kathie Lee shared on Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee back in 1997.
“I’d done this movie I’m very proud of, In & Out,” the actor recalled while speaking to Kathie Lee, 63, on Today. “And Regis Philbin got into me kissing Kevin Kline.”
Tom recalled that Regis “wouldn’t quit” pestering him to kiss Kathie Lee after the actor dished on smooching his co-star Kevin in In & Out — and KLG “saved him” during the interview by giving him a quick peck on the lips!
“You planted one on me which was kind of you saying to the audience, ‘He only went there as a tourist,'” Tom said. “And that shut Regis up, which is, as you know, almost impossible. Remember, I sent you flowers?”

Tom then sent Kathie Lee a bouquet of red roses as a thank you for their sweet on-air moment. “It was good, let’s do it again,” Kathie Lee told him on Today before the two shared another steamy kiss. “Happy anniversary!”
On Thursday, March 30, Kathie Lee began the Today show‘s third hour by revealing Tom again sent her flowers! “Thanks for a lovely second act, love Tom,” the card attached to the bouquet read.
“We’ve been friends for a long, long time — he’s truly one of the great class acts in the world. He’s a beautiful man and a beautiful human being,” Kathie Lee said of Tom. So cute!
