An insider shared: “Kathie Lee and Richard have been enjoying each other’s company for some time.
“They’re often spotted out and about in the Nashville area. She seems smitten and takes him everywhere.

What happened to Kathie Lee Gifford’s husband Frank?
On August 9, 2015, Kathie Lee’s husband Frank died from natural causes at the age of 84.
It is a degenerative disease in the brain, likely caused by repetitive head injuries.
The Today Show alum’s family initially said Frank died solely of natural causes but later tests revealed that CTE may have been a contributing factor.
His family donated his brain to science in the hopes that they would be able to help others suffering from the disease.
Frank Gifford is survived by Kathie Lee, their two children, and his three older children from his marriage to Maxine Avis Ewart.

How many times has Kathie Lee been married?
The Emmy Award-winning TV host met Frank on the set of a morning news show and Gifford admitted that she was smitten at first sight.
“I met Frank Gifford because it was 4 o’clock in the morning at Good Morning America, walking down one of the hallways and I looked over at somebody in the dressing room — the best set of buns I’ve ever seen in my life — just leaned over a sink putting in contact lenses,” she told People in 2020.
Together they had two children; a son named Cody and a daughter named Cassidy.
She is also the stepmother to her late husband’s children from his first marriage; Victoria, Jeff, and Kyle.
