HODA Kotb revealed her worry that she and co-host Savannah Guthrie “will be fired” over their “every day” habit on set.
The Today Show hosts unveiled their highly anticipated costumes for their yearly Halloween variety show – this year’s theme was Viva Las Vegas.
While Hoda, 58, and Savannah, 50, posed and “performed” while dressed as Cirque du Soleil performers, Hoda shared her worries.
“You don’t wanna be next to Savannah,” she said. “She drops bombs on me during the show that I’m seriously afraid I’m gonna laugh and get fired.”
Savannah added: “We basically laugh through every single morning.”
The duo released their routine before donning the matching aqua one-pieces, climbing onto aerial rings hanging from a stage at Rockefeller Plaza.
“When we rehearsed, the rings were maybe like three inches off the ground. And then we came out here and we’re like, ‘Whoa, those are really high,” said Savannah.
“Yeah,” Hoda agreed. “They put a mat underneath and had an ambulance standing by. Our only job was to hold on because they couldn’t tether us because of all of our incredible moves.”
The two working moms said they lean on one another during their jobs, adding that if one of them is a bad day, the other will be there to balance each other out.
“We just listen,” said Hoda. “I think that’s it. Someone told me the best way to have a friendship or raise kids or do anything is four words. ‘Listen and love, love, love.’ That’s it.”
“It’s true. That’s it,” Savannah agreed. “We like give each other a little squeeze. That’s it. A nudge”
Also part of the Halloween festivities was Al Roker, 68, dressed as the late Sammy Davis Jr while Carson Daly, 49, was illusionist David Copperfield.
Jenna Bush Hager, 40, also stunned audiences in a silver sequined gown in homage to singer Celine Dion.
“I love Celine,” Jenna told People. “I feel like I’ve been preparing for this moment since I was like 20 years old.”
