Celebrity Magnet Tom Murro, the regular guy who stumbled on his knack for meeting famous people after meeting President Barak Obama while the prez was playing a round of golf, decided to spend the afternoon with Kathie Lee Gifford (not to be confused with Kathy Griffin.)
So he picked up a bottle of Yellow tail Riesling and headed over to Book Ends in Ridgewood where the Today Show host was reading her new children’s book Party Animal.
After she was done with her reading Tom approached her and said “happy winesday” (something she’s says on the show it sounds like) and that was the key to her heart.
The two chatted about meeting 25 years earlier at a charity softball game for Cystic Fybrosis and took pictures with the wine. Tom asked her to pass along a photo of him and Al Roker from the Dressed to Kilt event (where he previously showed us Sean Connery’s plaid mobile) to Al in the am. He joked “make sure you drink that wine on the show next Winesday” and she said ”Honey..I’m going to drink this tomorrow”! Overall he said she was lovely.
