But after Kathie Lee discussed Caitlyn Jenner, it was Hoda Kotb's turn in the spotlight — explaining the fun, celeb-tastic way she met her boyfriend of two years, Joel Schiffman.
It happened, she told host Andy Cohen, when she wasn't expecting it at all.
Before meeting Schiffman, Hoda was dating lawyer Jay Blumenkopf for two days, according to Daily Mail. An insider told the Daily Mail, “Jay actually broke up with Hoda…because he just couldn’t see himself getting married to her.” Before that, she was married to Burzis Kanga from 2005 to 2007 (the same year she was diagnosed with breast cancer), according to Us Weekly.
In 2013, Hoda revealed on her show that she married and divorced Kanga on Valentine’s Day.
"I've gone down that road once, so I would've normally said definitely not," said Kotb, who divorced Burzis Kanga in 2007.

Wednesday night's visit by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to "Watch What Happens Live" was full of great moments.Valentine’s Day, I’ll be honest with you, is not my favorite holiday of the year, because—I wish we had a drink — I’ll explain why, then the drinks hopefully will come.I met my first husband on Valentine’s Day…Wait — it gets worse.Unfortunately, both of you had your chance and we all risk our ex's meeting someone else (and that includes you.) There isn't much you can do at this point because he is dating someone else, and to make matters worse it's to your old friend.
You should try your best to get on with your life for now, and perhaps the two will split-up and you may have a chance again. Your ex will have no respect for you and you'll only end up hurting two people ...
Hoda showed a picture of the two of them, revealing the mystery man’s identity. “A source tells Us Weekly that Kotb recently introduced Schiffman to her Today family at their holiday party,” reports Us Weekly.
