Kathie Lee Gifford

"[I had] some raging hormones going. I mean, I was ready! My lifelong self-consciousness about my body seemed, miraculously, to fade right away . . . It was like, yabba dabba doo! I lost every inhibition I'd ever had. It was time for candles and romance, time to boogie and swing from the chandeliers.

And yet we just couldn't seem to get relaxed with each other. It saddens me to think about it now. We were so uncomfortable with each other, and I felt responsible and disappointed for both of us. I spent the first night of my married life sobbing my eyes out, feeling we had just made the biggest mistake of our lives."
