Years after losing her husband Frank Gifford, Kathie Lee Gifford, 65, seems to have found a new love!
Last week, Gifford was seen getting up close and personal with a gray-haired man at an outdoor concert in Franklin, Tennessee, in video obtained by DailyMail.com.
During their day out, Randy was seen with his hands around her waist as they danced along to Journey songs. At one point, Kathie Lee was spotted with her hands around his neck as she whispered into his ear.
An eyewitness at the concert told DailyMailTV, “She was having a great time dancing very intimately with a male friend. Retirement looks good on her.”
Who’s her mystery man? The outlet has identified him as Randy Cronk, president of RMC Insurance Group, who lives in Spring Hill. The 56-year-old graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1986.
Kathie Lee recently moved to Nashville, which is 35 miles south of Spring Hill, following her departure from the “Today” show.
In June, Randy posted a pic from another date night, writing on Facebook, “Awesome dance partner tonight.”
Randy has even made it on Kathie Lee’s Instagram twice in group photos. In one photo, he is seen wrapping his hand around her waist.
Earlier this year, Kathie Lee pointed out that she was ready to date again. She told People magazine, “I’m not interested in something that isn’t magnificent.”
“Do I need a man in my life? Well, I’ve got Cody,” Kathie Lee continued about her son. “I’ve got a man in my life. I’ve got great male friends. Do I need companionship? Yes, I do, and that’s one of the main reasons I moved to Nashville… Not that I’m looking for a man. What I’m looking for is an active, vibrant life.”
Of her relationship with Frank, who was her husband for 29 years, Kathie said, “I had a great love. How many people have great love?”
“I had a friend of mine who asked me a couple of years ago after Frank passed, he said, ‘Sorry, I guess Frank was the love of your life, right?’… And I said, ‘So far.’ I was kind of surprised by my answer because it was like optimistic," Kathie emphasized. “Love can happen at any time. And then he said, ‘I’ve never had a love like that in my life.’ I said, ‘Not yet. I have, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have another one.’ And he hasn’t, but that doesn’t mean he won’t.”
Before her exit from “Today," Kathie Lee spoke with “Extra” about her plans for the future. Watch!
