Hey Kathie Lee & Hoda: It Was GREAT to See You Guys Without Makeup!

But PLEASE don’t ask Bonnie to do it when she appears on the ‘Today’ show!

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb did an incredibly brave thing today: They spent the entirety of their Today Show hour without any makeup.

That’s not to say that they weren’t nervous about the whole thing beforehand. “I kept waking up in the middle of the night,” Hoda, 45, said. “I didn’t think this was a big deal until I realized that I don’t even go running without lipstick on — because you never know who you’re going to see.”

“I feel like it’s the dumbest thing we’ve ever done,” Kathie Lee, 56, agreed.

It all started with a challenge from Rosie O’Donnell. Rosie, who is friends with Kathie Lee, accused her friend of having plastic surgery. Thus “No Makeup Day” was born, and Kathie Lee was able to look directly at the camera and say, “Look for scars, baby.”

In a taped segment aired this morning, Ann Curry, Natalie Morales and Meredith Vieira also appeared sans foundation; and Today Show style editor Bobbie Thomas, 35, and correspondent Sara Haines, 32, also didn’t conceal anything from the high-definition cameras.

And finally, for Kathie Lee, vindication: Rosie admitted that she was wrong. “Apparently I said I thought she had plastic surgery … I believe her if she said she didn’t” O’Donnell said.

Kudos to you brave gals, you are an inspiration! (Just don’t make us do it!)
