By Tess Farrand, Staff Writer
You know and love her from TODAY with Hoda Kotb and her many other entertainment ventures both in movies, music and on Broadway. Months after announcing she was leaving the fifth hour of the widely-watched show to do more movies, Kathie Lee will receive the honor of Hollywood recognition on the Walk of Fame!
According to The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s press release, Gifford will join a host of entertainers who are also receiving stars, including Chris Hemsworth (AVENGERS, MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL), Octavia Spencer (THE HELP), Julia Roberts (WONDER), and two-time Movieguide® Awards host Terry Crews.
Longtime on and off-screen pal Hoda Kotb tweeted on June 21s in support of Gifford, “She is getting her STAR!!! My girl @KathieLGifford will be in the Hollywood Walk is Fame!!! Congrats”

Other Christians in entertainment have recently received stars, including Mark Wahlberg, Chris Pratt, Gary Sinise, and Patricia Heaton, not to mention the numerous Christian stars and filmmakers from the golden age of Hollywood who are honored on the Walk of Fame.
Ceremony dates for the unveiling of the stars haven’t been announced yet. When it does happen, it wouldn’t surprise us if Gifford takes the opportunity to share about the Lord’s provision in her life, as she has done many times prior in public settings and on TV.
Congratulations Kathie Lee Gifford!
