KATHIE Lee Gifford is on the verge of an emotional breakdown.
According to reports, the star is struggling to deal with the ongoing bickering with Today co-host and Hoda Kotb, the epic failure of her recent Broadway musical, and caring for her 82-year-old husband Frank.
“Kathie Lee is at her breaking point,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“It’s a perfect storm of professional disappointments and personal dilemmas. The topper is that she’s also suffering from a bad case of empty-nest syndrome because both of her kids are now grown and pursuing their own dreams.
“To add to the stress and loneliness, Frank seems to be failing. He’s forgetful and not very active, while Kathie Lee always wants to be the life of the party.
“In fact, her closest friends are concerned that Kathie Lee will begin to start boozing too much in an effort to numb her sadness.
“Kathie Lee would love the change of scenery, but Hoda is resisting uprooting her whole life.
“They’re sniping at each other behind the scenes – and the tension is evident.
“Kathie Lee is stressed and on edge, and it seems like she’s just about ready to crack.”
