KATHIE LEE & HODA
Episode: Winesday, November 10
Total Drinks: Two measly sips
Biggest Lush: Both co-hosts were teetotalers this week
Maple River Winery Pumpkin Wine
Best Bon Mot:
Kathie Lee: "So much about the wine is about the aroma." Hoda: "And it smells rank."
Drunkest Moment: They're more likely to get drunk off actual pumpkins
The ladies of the morning weren't playing very nice this week. As they always do, KL&H sipped and pimped a specific brand of wine—but this time, they weren't fans of the Pumpkin Wine from Maple River Winery in North Dakota. Its neon yellow color popped off the screen. Kathie Lee's highest praise after a couple of pursed-lip sips: "Not as bad as I thought it would be." Perhaps the $13.99 price tag wasn't up to snuff for the typically classy duo. And it still worked out well for winery owners Greg and Susan Kempel. They're
promoting their brew "as seen on the
Today show!!!" Its rankness goes unmentioned.
