Kathie Lee Gifford has only kind words for Billy Bush.
ET asked the Today show co-host about her former coworker, who was let go by NBC after leaked 2005 audio revealed a denigrating conversation about women between the then-Access Hollywood host and presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
"I loved Billy. And we all did so we wish him all the best," the 63-year-old TV personality shared at Carnival Cruise Line's event celebrating the Vista ship's first voyage in the US. "It'll be hard shoes to fill, I think. He's such a pro."
"The people that do it best are the ones that make it look easy," Gifford added.
