Halloween came early for the mistresses of the fourth hour; talk about a ruff day at the office!

If you look up the word “shameless” in the dictionary, you’ll probably see a picture of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. More specifically, you’ll see them in dog costumes, which they sported March 13 on the Today show as a thank-you to their viewers for getting them more than 500,000 likes on Facebook. Needless to say, it made us — and everyone at The Soup, I’m sure — fall in love with the drinking duo all over again.

“I’m not on Facebook, personally,” Kathie Lee admitted. “But I’m told it’s a very important thing.”

Fashion-forward Hoda sported a chic black-and-white dog suit, while Kathie Lee opted for a more traditional brown-with-white-tummy look. It should also be noted that The Baha Men‘s seminal hit “Who Let The Dogs Out” was playing, as Hoda and Kathie Lee have phenomenal taste in music.

But even though the ladies admitted they’d do anything for more Facebook likes, Hoda adamantly drew the line at barking.

“I have my journalistic standards,” she insisted — as she removed her doggy paws and picked up her glass of wine.

Shortly before going on the air, Kathie Lee tweeted a behind-the-scenes shot of her dog day with Hoda, saying, “Another day of begging for FB likes! the peanut butter dog treats aren’t bad.”

HollywoodLifers, do Kathie Lee and Hoda’s costumes deserve a round of a-paws, or should they be buried in the backyard, never to be dug up? Drop a comment with your take on their shameless-ness!
