Carson allegedly caught his wife cheating with Frank Gifford, however Kathie Lee has denied the incident ever happening
Johnny Carson's long-time lawyer Henry Bushkin released a tell-all biography about his former employer's closely guarded life and one of the most discussed stories to emerge from the account stems back to an alleged affair his wife Joanne had with former Giants' ace Frank Gifford. After Joanne denied the rumours herself, Frank's wife Kathie Lee Gifford has also come forward to shoot down the claim, saying her husband said the whole thing is a lie.
Frank and Kathie have been together for almost thirty years.
The New York Post first reported the alleged affair, citing the new biography from Bushkin. In the extract, Bushkin claims that, upon learning the his wife was having an affair with Gifford in 1962, a gun-totting Carson broke in to Joanne's private Manhattan apartment and found it full of pictures of the former NY Giants star. However Joanne was the first to deny the reports, telling the NY Post that she never had an affair with Gifford, although she did recall that Johnny was "jealous" of her friendship with him. As for the gun part, Joanne said that it was totally bogus, because Johnny was "terrified of guns."

The Internet has been rife with the news that Hoda Kotb was sent to cover the London Olympics for Today, as Savannah Guthrie's work on the programme somewhat resembled a sinking ship with no hope for rescue.
However a spokesperson for NBC has come forward and, speaking to TV Guide, vehemently denied that Kotb was brought in as a 'saviour' for the flagging show. The spokesperson explained that it was common knowledge that Hoda would fly to London "because we announced it on our [Nbc's] show three weeks ago." The rep went on to explain that Hoda, who presents Today's fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford, was always going to be spending a few days in London to cover some more light-hearted Olympic stories, adding "she talked about it on the show several times."

This is bad news for Savannah Guthrie, who replaced Ann Curry as the show's co-presenter only a few weeks ago, a move that proved unwelcome when it was announced and even more so now as she fails to impress audiences with the show's Olympic coverage.

Trying her hardest to hold back the tears all night, Kristen Wiig's SNL days ended as she bid her fondest of farewells to the show she has worked on for the past seven years. During her time on the show she has proved just as popular outside the set of Saturday Nigh Live as on it, appearing in such notable roles in Friends With Kids, Paul, Adventureland and Knocked Up, among other films. She is probably best known outside the show for the Oscar-nominated movie Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote and starred in.
Guest host Mick Jagger played the principal at a high school graduation in the show's final sketch making an example of Wiig, in cap and gown, as "one particular student who is leaving this summer." The show then went into a series of Rolling Stones classics starting with 'She's a Rainbow' before an ensemble rendition of 'Ruby Tuesday,' which features the line; "still I'm gonna miss you."
