Hoda Kotb Had a Makeout Session in a Furniture Store

In a giggly revelation on December 1, Hoda Kotb spilled the beans to her co-host Jenna Bush Hager about a cheeky escapade from her past. The chat turned spicy as they delved into the saucy world of celebrity canoodling, specifically that time when Ben Affleck and J.Lo were caught in the act amidst the furniture store shelves.

With a mischievous glint in her eye, 59-year-old Hoda confessed, “I feel like I need to get something off my chest. There was this one time, right here in the concrete jungle, while I was living and working in the Big Apple, I found myself in a furniture store engaging in a full-on makeout session.” Cue the scandalous music!

Jaw dropped, Jenna, at a sprightly 42, sought clarification on the nature of this furniture store rendezvous. Was it a mere peck on the cheek or a daring expedition into the forbidden realms of romance? Hoda, with a sly grin, clarified, “No, no, no, not the whole shebang, just a good ol’ makeout sesh – you know, lips locking for an extended period. It was like walking on the edge because I thought, ‘I could lose my entire job right now, and it’s happening!'” Talk about living life on the wild side of upholstery.

As Jenna playfully accused Hoda of being an edgy risk-taker, Hoda retorted, “Oh, it was totally sexy and a turn-on.” Who knew furniture shopping could be such a steamy affair?

While Hoda spilled the spicy details, she kept mum about the identity of her smooching partner. The journalist had been sailing the relationship seas with ex-fiancé Joel Schiffman, announcing their engagement in 2019 after dating since 2013. However, as revealed in 2022 on Today, the couple decided to part ways amicably, choosing the path of friendship and co-parenting over engagement.

Hoda, showering nothing but love and positivity on her ex-fiancé, has been navigating the parenting journey alongside Joel for their adorable duo, Haley Joy and Hope Catherine Kotb, whom she adopted. Despite the relationship rollercoaster, she praised Joel on Instagram in June for Father’s Day, proving that co-parenting can indeed be a harmonious dance.

Before Joel, Hoda had a stint as the wife of Burzis Kanga from 2005 to 2008. Ah, the tales of love and mischief in the city that never sleeps! Who knew furniture shopping could be so scandalously entertaining?
