During the fourth hour of the Today show, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb interviewed Martin Short to promote his new film, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted. At some point during the interview, Kathie Lee asked Short just how exactly he maintains such a happy marriage with his wife. Now, this would be OK, if it weren't for the fact that Short's wife, actress Nancy Dolman, passed way from cancer in 2010.

Short keeps calm and composed despite the fact that Kathie Lee goes on about it - "But you're still like, in love ... you make each other smile," she says at the end in a particularly cringe-worthy moment - completely unaware of the blunder. Classy guy.

Check out the interview above.
