Said My Hoda Helper: “Hoda was stunned to witness Joel’s hysterical reaction!”
He instantly started gagging when he walked in, my source reports. “He howled, ‘Hoda, throw out the baby’s dirty diapers! This place smells horrible!’
Instead of getting angry, Hoda cracked up, realizing her steaming pot of fresh-brewed beef stew had stunk up the joint and told Joel, ‘Sorry, babe, just my attempt at cooking, but don’t worry — I’ll phone for takeout!’”
Hoda later giggled to Kathie Lee Gifford that Joel’s such a sweetie, he then actually offered to taste her stinky stew!
