Meredith Vieira Gaffes Again — Says 'S–t' On 'Today'
Meredith Vieira, 59, is no longer a host on Today, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still make news on the show. Filling in for Kathie Lee Gifford, 59, on the fourth hour, she dropped an s-bomb on live television.
The incident happened as the show was coming back from break. Before an interview with Al Roker, 58, Vieira dropped a note card and let out an “Oh s—” for all to hear.
The crew and co-host, Hoda Kotb, 48, laughed it off. “Just go ahead and put it on Gawker already,” Kotb said. Vieira apologized for her gaffe. A bleep sound came shortly thereafter, to which Kotb replied, “Little late for the bleep.”
This is not the first time Vieira has cursed on the show. In 2010, during a segment on the dangers of texting while driving, she attempted to read a text message behind the wheel. The car ahead of her stopped short, leading her to exclaim, “Oh ‘sh*t! Why’d he stop?” The show immediately cut to a commercial break and when they returned, Vieira remarked, “I thought I saw a ship ahead of me.”
