'It Was A Real Disappointment.' Kathie Lee Gifford Gets Candid About Her "Devastating" Marriage To First Husband Paul Johnson
Kathie Lee Gifford's first experience with married life was with Paul Johnson. The marriage did eventually fall apart and she went on to tie the knot with former New York Giants halfback Frank Gifford.
Frank and Kathie got married in 1986 and remained man and wife until August 2015 when he passed away from a heart attack.
Like any marriage, the Giffords had some ups and downs in their union but they managed to work through their problems and had an overall happy marriage that lasted 29 years. It was a Hollywood union worth celebrating.
