Taylor Swift’s rep said yesterday that she never crashed a Kennedy wedding in Boston over the weekend and she was there as a guest of her high school boyfriend Conor Kennedy. But Kathie Lee Gifford, who is the bride’s step-grandma, said on Today this morning that Taylor pretty much crashed that party and she witnessed it with her own eyeballs. Yes, Kathie Lee was so beyond drunk that she was also witnessed fairies made of stars slow dance in a spinning room and also witnessed a really long blackout, but she swears she saw Taylor try to shove herself further up the Kennedy’s asshole by showing up to that wedding uninvited.
Kathie Lee co-signed the mother of the bride’s claim that Conor Kennedy never RSVP’d, but texted an hour before the wedding to say he was coming and bringing Taylor. Even though the mother of the bride told Conor to stay at home with his Lemon Meringue doll of a girlfriend, he still showed up to the reception. Conor was told to leave twice and he finally did. The Ramona Singer of morning television saw all of it. via Today:
“I was out in the hallway, she was waiting, standing around, and he came out, took her by the hand and they left,” Gifford said Thursday on TODAY.
Gifford is the stepmother of Victoria Gifford Kennedy, the mother of the bride, who told her “I’m really not happy about this” as the drama unfolded.
Although Swift’s 18-year-old boyfriend, Conor Kennedy, was invited to the event, he failed to RSVP until he sent a text message to the bride’s mother about an hour before the ceremony.
“She didn’t know if he was coming or not. She heard that he might be, but he got in touch with her an hour earlier, and said, basically, ‘Can I bring my girlfriend?’” Gifford said. “She said very nicely, ‘please do not come.’ Guess what? They came.”
Gifford said her stepdaughter was concerned that Swift’s last-minute appearance would steal the spotlight away from the ceremony.
“It’s the bride’s day, and that was Vicki’s other concern. ‘This is my daughter’s day and I would appreciate it if you would not come,’” she said.
Kathie Lee went on to say, “I was about to run over there and tell that curly fries-haired tramp what’s what, but I was in the middle of an intense conversation with a really chatty floor lamp about my new Broadway musical about some lady evangelist nobody’s ever heard of.” Seriously, how do you decide to write a musical about a lady evangelist and not make it about Jan Crouch or Tammy Faye?
Taylor should just sip a Juicy Juice on her porch swing and leave this alone. Taylor is lucky that the Kennedys only kicked her out of a hotel and didn’t decide to take her for a nighttime drive instead.
