In honor of the 50th anniversary of Days of Our Lives, Kathie Lee Gifford unearthed a piece of her past she'd really rather forget.
As it turns out, the TV personality has a storied history with the soap opera. While trying to break into Hollywood, Gifford, 62, worked as an "atmosphere" extra on the show before being promoted to a "dismembered body voice," actress with under five lines and, eventually, "the most minor character ever," she revealed Tuesday on the Today show.
"Her name is Nurse Callahan," co-host Hoda Kotb said to introduce a vintage clip of KLG in action. "We have not seen this video. This is gonna be fun."

[YOUTUBE "uxJXmYahSCg"] Who would you put your money on in a beer pong showdown: Anna Kendrick and Hoda Kotb or Darius Rucker and Kathie Lee Gifford?
Consider that one for a second. Either team could have the edge, but if you watch the video, you'll see one of them clearly has a bit more experience bouncing ping-pong balls into keg cups. (And no worries: Today subbed out actual beer for root beer.)
