In 1996, Kathie found herself at the center of a controversy when it was reported that sweatshop labor was used to make her signature clothing line sold in Wal-Mart stores.
The two children were posed similarly and the headline claimed that KathieLee was doing the same thing to her child as JonBenet’s mother had done to her, implying that Cassidy was a victim of negligent parenting.
Two weeks later, Kathie announced her departure as Regis’s co-host, and although she said nothing specifically about the tabloid headlines, she did say she was doing it to protect her children.
KathieLee Gifford (born Kathryn Lee Epstein on August 16, 1953 in Paris, France) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress most famous for her stint on the talk show Live with Regis and KathieLee, which she co-hosted with Regis Philbin for 15 years.
