Mike Walker Reports… Back in 2015, I scooped that Kathie Lee Gifford gifted good pal/“Today” co-host Hoda Kotb with what she described as: “a huge painting of New Orleans that I paid a lot of money for — and would’ve looked gorgeous on Hoda’s apartment wall!”

But Kathie Lee was furious to learn, after Hoda blurted it on the air, that her pal had socked the art into storage — whining she “had no space for it!”

KLG was so pissed, she threatened to snatch it back and sell it for charity — but now comes new news: Hoda and financier boyfriend Joel Schiffman just moved into a bigger NYC apartment!

Great for Kathie Lee’s gift, yes?

No, said a klose Kotb pal: “Hoda’s now in a hot mess with KLG ’cause she still wants to leave the painting right where it is — in a dark Brooklyn storage unit!”
