Kathie Lee Gifford (nėe Epstein) is a singer, actress and television hostess who visited South Park in "Weight Gain 4000".

Background

As a child, Gifford was a classmate of Herbert Garrison. When they were young, they competed in a talent show, in which Mr. Garrison and Mr. Hat put on a very lame, yet critically-praised ventriloquist performance. Victory seemed to be his when Kathie Lee came forth to sing, with background dancers, music, and a fancy set. She won the talent contest by a landslide as a result. Mr. Garrison was furious that he lost because "she had choreography", and has held a grudge against her ever since.

When Kathie Lee came to perform in South Park, Mr. Garrison, now a schoolteacher, decided to get even with her, but Mr. Hat suggested he should just kill her altogether. Mr. Garrison tried to fight Mr. Hat's influence, but gave in and purchased a rifle and held himself up in the town's book depository. Kathie showed up on a truck encased in a bulletproof glass chamber and surrounded by agents, and listened to the various performances in town. Stan and Wendy caught on to Mr. Garrison's plot and tried to convince him not to kill Kathie Lee. Unfortunately, he went forth with his plan and fired at Kathie Lee. However, she survived as she was thrown off the stage when Cartman's weight broke the stage, and Garrison shot Kenny instead. Kathie Lee was rushed out of South Park and Mr. Garrison was arrested, and Mr. Hat was committed.

Kathie Lee later made love to Chef, as he was extremely attracted to her. He is shocked to find her even more sex-crazed than himself. She later reappears in a flashback during "City on the Edge of Forever (Flashbacks)" when the kids misremember her as being an alien in disguise and Garrison a hero.

She finally reappears in reality as a cameo in "Wing" near the stage at Sylvester Stallone's son's wedding.

She is later seen in "The Return of Chef", making a cameo at Chef's funeral, she sits next to Elton John. She makes two more appearances in "200" and "201" as part of the class-action lawsuit, but has no lines.

Appearance

In "Weight Gain 4000", she wore a hot pink v-neck long sleeve shirt over a white blouse with purple pants. In "The Return of Chef", she wore a similar outfit, but her shirt was black instead of hot pink. She also wore light pink eye shadow instead of blue like from her previous appearance. Though, she still has red lipstick, and light pink blush, just as all her appearances have in common.

Personality

In "Weight Gain 4000", she was shown to be self-centered and arrogant. She also appeared to be whorish, sleeping with Chef despite knowing him for less than a day.

Relationships

Chef

She slept with Chef in "Weight Gain 4000", it is unknown if they had a actual relationship, however, given that Chef has since changed significantly, therefore, it is assumed any possible relationship is over. Kathie attended his funeral in "The Return of Chef".

Mr. Garrison

Garrison and Gifford are rivals, as Garrison lost a talent show to Gifford as revealed in "Weight Gain 4000" and as a result, Garrison attempted murder against Gifford.
