Poor Martin Short. On this morning's Today show, host Kathie Lee Gifford asked the actor how he maintains a happy marriage with his wife -- who died of ovarian cancer in 2010.

Nothing but respect for the way Short handled it, as Gifford forged ahead, clueless.

She apologized via Twitter following the show: "I send my sincerest apologies to Martin Short and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful."
