Kathie Lee Gifford Says Taylor Swift Was Asked To Leave Kennedy Wedding

Taylor Swift might be sticking by her story that she was invited to Kyle Kennedy’s recent wedding, but another person who was there has stepped forward to say the pop star was asked to leave on two separate occasions. Kathie Lee Gifford, best known for her co-hosting stint with Regis Philbin and her marriage to Frank Gifford, is actually the bride’s grandmother by marriage. All agree she was formally invited to the wedding, and according to her, Taylor was not.
The subject came up on Today, and while the fifty-nine-year-old didn’t seem overly excited to be talking about such a touchy subject, she did verify the tale that’s been going around. Here’s a look at her exact quote, courtesy of US Weekly…
"The truth is, because I was there, Vicki's account is accurate."
Here’s the rub though. Kathie Lee thinks there’s a possibility Swift showed up to the wedding thinking she was actually invited. Of course, given how weddings work and how far in advance one has to request a plus one, she should have known better, but still, I suppose that’s preferable to knowingly crashing a wedding. That being said, there’s still the whole she stayed after being asked to leave portion of the story that’s not the best color on Swift.
I don’t know what Swift thought she’d accomplish by her actions, but in retrospect, it probably wasn’t the best way to endear herself to her boyfriend’s family.
