Hota Kotb's been working with Kathie Lee Gifford since 2007 -- and now the "Today" host is dishing on her button-pushing co-star.
"Kathie Lee is not a diva," Kotb says in excepts from her new book "Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer and Kathie Lee," adding "She comes to play. She asks everyone about their family and friends and keeps up with all the happenings. She sings to me every morning when she strolls into the makeup room."

It's not all sunshine and rainbows though, "Can Kathie Lee be a pain in my ass? Yes. Some days I want to take her to the mat and stick gum in her hair," says Kotb, "But, love her or hate her, Kathie Lee knows how to do live talk television. And don’t worry about me, I can take whatever she dishes."
